Cannes, September 8th, 2023 – Ferretti Group gears up to set sail for the Cannes Yachting Festival with a fleet of 20 magnificent yachts, including five world premieres for the Riva, Ferretti Yachts, Pershing and Wally brands.
A whole host of new products will be presented at the 46th Cannes Yachting Festival from September 12 to 17 starting from the world premieres: Riva 82’ Diva, the flybridge with endless outdoor space; Pershing GTX116 for a new dimension of sporty elegance; Ferretti Yachts 1000 Skydeck, newly styled for quintessential wellbeing; Ferretti Yachts INFYNITO 90, the new INFYNITO range model that heralds in a thrilling yachting experience, and wallywhy150, the latest crossover spaceship in the wallywhy range which was presented at the Venice Boat Show and will make its international debut in Cannes.
The Cannes event comes at a memorable time for Ferretti Group, which a few months ago completed the dual listing of its ordinary shares on Euronext Milan, after making their debut last year on the Hong Kong stock exchange. While Asia remains a key strategic market, the debut in Milan is enabling the Group to extend its shareholder base in regions including Europe, the Middle East and the Americas, which are the main markets.
As usual, the Group is joined at the event by luxury industry partners offering guests and visitors a packed programme of events. Range Rover is confirmed as official automotive partner and Flexjet as private aviation provider, followed by Frette, Fornasetti, Roda, Culti, Venini and Perennials. The elegant outdoor decor and furnishings are by Ethimo and Roda. The numerous Italian partners include Dolce & Gabbana for tailor-made staff uniforms, Lavazza with the brand’s latest selection of coffee blends, and La Scolca and Veuve Clicquot offering quality wines and champagnes.

The first yacht in the new GTX line, Pershing GTX116 is the ideal combination of elegance, volume and the signature Pershing thrill. She confirms the brand’s sporty DNA, while enhancing the concept of comfort by providing plenty of open-air space, areas designed to be in direct contact with the water, and outstanding liveability guaranteed by the new five-cabin layout. With her streamlined profile, she is emblematic of the brand’s sporty personality, which is pointed up in the bow area by a signature style feature referencing luxury SUV automotive imagery and identifying the new Pershing GTX116 as an SUY or Sport Utility Yacht. Pershing GTX116, in this new range, is painted a new shade of grey, with a special blue hue used for the deckhouse, while the generous glazed surfaces flood the interiors with natural light.
This truly unique yacht, which has a hull over 35 meters in length and 7.70 meters in the beam, has a remarkable 150 square meters of outdoor areas seamlessly connected to the water, taking liveability to the next level.
