The Ferretti Group is displaying four models, with two premieres in the German market, this week at Boot 2015, the Düsseldorf International Boat Show, after taking a few years away from the show.

The show opened Saturday and continues through Jan. 25.

The boats displayed are Riva yachts Rivarama Super and Aquariva Super, and the Ferretti Yachts 750 and the Pershing 62, which are new to the German market. Both yachts, which Ferretti said have been welcomed at other international shows, belong to the strategic category ranging between 60 and 80 feet, which is of particular interest in continental and northern Europe, the company said.

The group is taking part directly in the nine-day show after a few years away. The company’s first international display of 2015 will be in Halle 6.

“Every year the Düsseldorf boat show plays a crucial role for the Ferretti Group, as it allows us to get in direct contact with customers, journalists and dealers from central and northern Europe, an area characterized by a high standard of living and a still-growing economy,” Ferretti Group chief commercial officer Stefano De Vivo said in a statement.

“This is why this year the group has decided to take part in the boat show directly and to present four very successful models of its fleet, including two absolute premieres for Germany: the Ferretti Yachts 750 and the Pershing 62, which are leading crafts for our brands; they both belong to the category between 60 and 80 feet in length, a very appealing range on these markets."
