Ferretti Group America opened a 5,000-square-foot office, shop and parts department at Lauderdale Marine Center. Ferretti will employ eight full-time workers and plans to add as many as 20 positions in the coming year.

“We welcome the Ferretti Group to our shipyard, whose state-of-the-art facility will meet a range of maintenance and repair needs for most Italian-made boats from a convenient central location,” Colin Kiley, executive vice president of LMC, said in a statement. “We look forward to an extremely beneficial relationship.”

The parts department will be open to the public, with more than 3,000 accessories from Ethos, Aqua Signal, Mastervolt, Fluiten, Side-Power, Besenzoni, Cantalup, Lopolight, Gianneschi, Calpeda, Guidi, Planus, Tecma, Gallinea, H&B Technics and Tecnoseal. It will also store and manage custom kits for spare parts for American owners of Ferretti brand boats.

The service department is set up to handle warranty work, maintenance and refits for all Ferretti Group brands, including Ferretti, Pershing, Wally, Itama, Riva, MochiCraft, CRN and CustomLine. Factory-trained technicians will maintain their certifications annually. The facility will also offer mobile service.

“The project managers at our new LMC location draw on expert experience from our engineers, designers, quality-control teams and builders to offer our American customers an unparalleled range of technical support and consultancy services from a global team,” said Guy J. Gauvin, director of after sales and service, Americas, for Ferretti Group America, in a statement. “We’re very pleased that we can now deliver complete service from under one roof.”
