The Ferretti Yachts 780 flybridge yacht will make its North American debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The Ferretti Group will bring two yachts making their North American debuts to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which starts Wednesday and will continue through Sunday.

Ferretti Yachts’ 780 flybridge yacht and the Riva 76-foot Bahamas convertible yacht will have their North American premiere at the show.

"Fort Lauderdale is the ideal occasion for presenting to the U.S. market and yacht enthusiasts the new models launched during the European shows in the autumn," Ferretti Group chief commercial officer Stefano de Vivo said in a statement.

“Also, visitors can view additional models on display in our Fort Lauderdale showroom, Ferretti Group’s headquarters in the United States,” de Vivo said. “This unique location at the edge of the water has 12 slips where yachts up to 100 feet can be moored: a year-round yacht show of the group’s seven brands.”

The group will bring additional yachts from among all of its brands.

Ferretti Yachts will show the 450, 550, 650, 700 and 850. Custom Line will display its Navetta 28.

Pershing will bring the 5X, the 62, the 70, the 74 and the 82 VHP, a version made for the U.S. market and equipped with high-performance propulsion.

The Riva 76-foot Bahamas convertible yacht also will make its North American debut at the show.

Riva will bring the Aquariva Super, Rivamare, the 76-foot Perseo, the 88-foot Florida and the 88-foot Domino Super.

“This year’s boat show marks a renewal for our local headquarters, as we will reveal important news about this location and the entire United States distribution network,” de Vivo said. “Last but not least, Fort Lauderdale will also be an opportunity to share our first new projects of 2018."

During Ferretti Group’s press conference, which is scheduled for Wednesday, some of next year’s new yachts will be announced, along with details about the organization of the group's subsidiaries in the United States.

The group will also present its commercial development plan of the Americas region, which is aimed at further increasing its presence on both shores of the United States and Canada, as well as in Central and South America.

The plan will be implemented by a team that supports the company’s official distributors in Mexico, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Panama, Venezuela and Honduras.

During the press conference, some news also will be disclosed on Allied Marine, the group’s longtime American brokerage and charter company, which is preparing to launch a new phase of its business.
