Ferretti Yachts conducted the technical launch for its 780 flybridge in preparation for the yacht’s world premiere.

Ferretti Yachts conducted the technical launch for its 780 flybridge in preparation for the yacht’s world premiere at a private showing in September.

The launch took place at the Ferretti Group’s production facility for flybridge yachts between 75 and 96 feet in Cattolica, Italy.

“The launch of the Ferretti Yachts 780 is a major step in the ever-evolving journey of our brand just a few days ahead of the equally important launch of Ferretti Yachts 920, the maxi flybridge also built in the Cattolica yard,” Ferretti Group chief commercial officer Stefano de Vivo said in a statement. “These are the two latest masterpieces by a brand which has been capable of winning over all of the main international markets.”

After the Ferretti Group Private Preview in Monte Carlo from Sept. 8-10 the 780 will have its public international premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival from Sept. 12-27.

That will be followed by its U.S. debut at the Nov. 1-5 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
