Ferretti Group announced the launch of the first Ferretti 550, which marks the brand’s return to flybridge yachts under 60 feet.

Interior and exterior fitting out, as well as all technical testing and checking of on-board equipment and systems, will be completed in the next few weeks.

“We are enthusiast [sic] to see the first Ferretti Yachts 550 put into the water,” Ferretti Group COO Stefano de Vivo said in a statement. “This new model is the result of accurate design and engineering work aimed at building a yacht which fully embodies our brand in terms of design, performance, safety, functionality and reliability. Our priority was to put on the market a top-quality, highly competitive yacht in order to win over current and prospective owners of Ferretti Yachts, not only in our established markets but also in the Asian Pacific area.”

Three boats have been sold ahead of the 550’s world premiere Sept. 8-13 at Cannes Yachting Festival.
