VIDEO: Ferretti Group signs deal with My-Villages

The Ferretti Group joined My-Villages’ regional and national rollout of its boat management tool, The Boat Village, and will use it across all of its brands.

Each new boat will receive a digital profile that will be created with digitized equipment manuals of all onboard equipment, operating instructions, how-to videos and a customized maintenance schedule with automatic reminders.

Owners will be able to access model-specific updates from the company or information from a marina manager or other professional from any computer, smartphone or tablet. The Boat Village also maintains records of the boat’s service history, usage trends, trip logs and other useful information electronically.

“Ferretti builds exquisite yachts and we are excited to be a part of that,” My-Villages founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement. “Our goal is to provide a modern-day solution that helps owners care for these fine yachts in a way that is both elegant and simple to use, and The Boat Village does exactly that.”

“Throughout our history, Ferretti Group has been innovating and acquiring new capabilities,” Ferretti Group America after-sales manager Dave Granstaff said. “Our integration of The Boat Village into our processes continues that rich tradition. Our commitment to customers does not end with delivery, and the use of The Boat Village will help us provide extraordinary service even after a customer leaves our port.”
