Ferretti Yachts signed an agreement with the Russian dealership Burevestnik Group.

Ferretti said it wants to continue to expand its international sales network and reveal its range of 45- to 96-foot fiberglass flybridge yachts.

Burevestnik Group was founded in 1993 by Andrey Boyko. It is based in Moscow and also has locations in Sochi and St. Petersburg.

“We are proud to make our latest agreement in Russia official with such a strong and consolidated partner as Burevestnik Group,” Ferretti Group chief commercial officer Stefano de Vivo said in a statement.

“We decided to focus firmly on this extremely important market in Eastern Europe by choosing to work with an experienced dealer. For us, it is a renewed business opportunity in a vast country, which has always loved Ferretti Yachts and is already home to lots of loyal owners of yachts of the group’s other brands.”

"We have been present in the market for more than 20 years now, and we are convinced that this new collaboration represents the right choice that will allow both of us to maximize the results in the future,” said Boyko, the Burevestnik Group’s CEO.

“I am extremely proud to announce this new dealership and to represent the interests of one of the best shipyards in the world. Today we believe in the potential and strength of our market, and we are ready to face the challenges of the future.”
