Ferretti Yachts received awards from the Robb Report China and the Lifestyle Media Group.

The Ferretti Yachts 920 flybridge was named Best Motor Yacht Under 100 Feet in the Best of Best Awards selected by Robb Report China.

The awards ceremony was held Dec. 1 at The Peninsula Beijing hotel.

The company also won the award for Most Premium Yacht Brand by the Lifestyle Media Group, a Chinese publishing group.

The gala took place Dec. 9 during China Rendezvous, an international luxury goods exhibition that took place in Sanya from Dec. 8-11.

Ferretti Yachts has been in China for more than 20 years. Four years ago it introduced the Tai He Ban version, which is designed for the Asian market and built according to the desires and tastes of yacht owners in the Far East.

“These two awards give us particular satisfaction — double, I would say,” Ferretti Group chief commercial officer Stefano de Vivo said in a statement. “Because they come from an extremely selective market that knows how to recognize the most exclusive Made-in-Italy products. And because they confirm the reputation of Ferretti Yachts at the worldwide level, as well as the value of a design philosophy that is distinctive, innovative and eclectic in this area, which is strategic for us.

“The Tai He Ban layout is concrete testimony of the attention Ferretti Yachts reserves to China,” de Vivo said. “We have studied interiors designed specially for business meetings, social gatherings and entertainment events, combined with decor solutions conceived by the architects and designers of our group. The response of the market has been beyond positive: We have already sold the third unit of the new Ferretti Yachts 920 with this exclusive layout.”
