After an outstanding Mediterranean boat show season, Ferretti Group is back in the limelight at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Date October 26 2022
On the water in Florida, they only have eyes for the fleet of nine models, including premieres of Custom Line 106’, Riva 102' Corsaro Super and Riva 76' Bahamas Super.
Inaugurated the new look of Ferretti Group American Showroom.
Forlì, October 26th 2022 – Ferretti Group’s magnificent 2022 takes in the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 26 to 30, with three spectacular debuts on the American market.
The U.S. boat show staged at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center is a cornerstone of the international yachting scene, presenting a huge range of boats and yachts from all over the world.
It is also the perfect setting to announce the success of Ferretti Yachts 860, Riva 130’ Bellissima and Custom Line 140’, with multiple units sold. Also warmly received by enthusiastic owners in the Americas, Pershing GTX116 is the innovative and eagerly awaited model with a cutting-edge design that will have its official launch in 2023.
Then there is the inauguration of the new refurbished Ferretti Group showroom in Fort Lauderdale, the largest covered in-water showroom in the Americas, resulting from a modernization plan that involved the creation of 12 covered boat moorings, offices and a welcome area for customers, as well as the exclusive Riva corner (Riva privé), which reprises the sophisticated stylistic hallmarks of Riva Lounges around the world. The showroom’s activities will join those offered by the existing Service Yard, with a focus on support and refit services.
Ferretti Group’s American fleet will be made up of 9 models representing the Custom Line, Riva, Wally, Ferretti Yachts and Pershing brands, with three premieres for the American market.
Two are Riva models: Riva 102’ Corsaro Super, a masterpiece of marine design that takes flybridge yachts into a new dimension, offering the ultimate in living comfort with almost 100 square metres of outdoor space and over 140 square metres of glazed surfaces, and Riva 76’ Bahamas Super, the convertible yacht that combines innovation and style as characterised by the C-Top, the aerodynamic carbon top that converts it from an open into a coupe and vice versa.
Completing the premieres is Custom Line 106’, which epitomises the brand’s ‘Made in Italy’ ethos with an elegant, modern design that seamlessly embraces both interiors and exteriors. While the stern is characterised by clean lines and a style pared down to its essentials, the forward area is for creative expression, with various complementary elements that bring a sense of calm and relaxation. All enhanced by an intense and harmonious natural light that amplifies the space and therefore the pleasure of cruising.
The premieres for the American market will be joined by a selection of the most representative models in the Ferretti Group fleet:
The prestigious U.S. event showcases Ferretti Group’s partnerships with exclusive Italian and international brands: Dolce&Gabbana designs the Group’s uniforms, while partner Cipriani Food provides fresh and tasty cuisine. Guests can enjoy sparkling toasts with Pommery and the finest wines from La Scolca, with Cincoro and E11even Vodka presenting their exclusive propositions for delicious after-dinner drinks. And after their meal or for a quick break, guests can take advantage of the service offered by Lavazza, while Fiji Water is the partner providing free water during the show.

The Group’s trusted automotive partner is Range Rover, which offers a car service to customers and owners in the new Range Rover line, with air transport available thanks to the collaboration with Flexjet. The selection also includes long-standing partner Seabob, which showcases its magnificent, limited editions with custom livery created specifically for the Group’s brands. The parterre of sponsors is crowned by Sotheby’s, with which the Group has formed a prestigious international partnership, and Poltrona Frau, which designs the elegant outdoor furniture.
RIVA 102’ CORSARO SUPER – PREMIERE
A new dimension for a dazzlingly beautiful flybridge yacht. In 102 feet of majesty, 102’ Corsaro Super features unprecedented style accents that characterise a true masterpiece of yacht design, ready to leave a glorious mark on the history of the flybridge range. With three decks and five cabins for 10 guests, the promise of the new Corsaro Super is to dominate the sea, not only from almost 100 square metres of liveable open-air spaces, but also from the interiors, thanks to over 140 square metres of magnificent glazing and glass surfaces that reduce the barriers to visual contact with the natural world around the yacht. One of the highlights of the new superyacht is the complete redesign of the stern area on the main deck, with the creation of a beach club extended by over 35 square metres for outstanding conviviality and comfort.

RIVA 76’ BAHAMAS SUPER – PREMIERE
A perfect balance of style and innovative technology, the second convertible yacht ever built offers new space and comfort without sacrificing the original spirit embodied by the model. Riva 76’ Bahamas Super stands out for the C-Top, the aerodynamic carbon top that converts it from an open into a coupe and vice versa, for twice as much comfort and fun on board. Outside, the aerodynamic profile of the Shark Grey hull with Bright Black accents features a huge, glazed surface punctuated by the chromed steel Riva logo. Inside, the refined Mediterranean style features magnificent pairings of materials and dark/light colour contrasts emblematic of Riva style.

CUSTOM LINE 106’ – PREMIERE
The incredible new Custom Line 106’ planing yacht makes a virtuoso statement for a different vision of timeless cruising. The design of the hull lines replicates and re-engineers the brilliant hydrodynamic performance of the brand’s updated planing line. The sleek, powerful contours feature taught lines that sweep from bow to stern, in an exciting alternation of materials and colours represented by light-coloured structural surfaces and dark plate glass. The interior styling developed by Francesco Paszkowski in partnership with Margherita Casprini taps into the philosophy behind the new Custom line planing yachts, exploring a more formal balance and featuring sharp colour contrasts in the furnishings and upholstery.

Combining style and performance, this is the ideal choice for lovers of innovative, high-performance boats. After evaluating various propulsion systems, Wally opted for latest generation 450 HP Mercury Verado R engines produced in the USA, which have a name for their reliability and high performance. They are the lightest and most efficient outboards on the market, as well as having the best power-to-weight ratio. This propulsion system, combined with the light weight and stability of the composite material and carbon fibre hull developed by Wally and Ferretti Group designers, has produced excellent results: high top speed, low fuel consumption and long range.
