Double-digit growth for Ferretti Group and new investments plan for Italy

• Consolidated production value reached 623 million euros: +10.8% compared to 2016.
• The EBITDA, of 59 million euros, is up more than 11% compared to 2016.
• Net profit of 2017 reached 24 million euros: +71% compared to 2016.
• Total assets stand at 971 million euros, of which 46 million composed by liquid assets.
• The outlook for 2018 foresees a production value of 704 million euros.

Ferretti Group presented today in Milan at Garage Italia, in the superb setting of Riva Privée, inaugurated today on this occasion, the financial results of 2017, the outlook and the investments plan for 2018. The Group 2017 financial cycle registered a consolidated production value equal to 623 million euros, demonstrating 10.8% growth compared to 562 million euros in 2016. EBITDA grows by 11,3% compared to 2016 reaching 59 million euros.

If 2016 marked the first year of net profit since 2008, passing from -29 million euros to +14.1 million euros, 2017 reconfirms the solidity of the Group, with the PAT (Profit After Taxes) equal to 24 million euros euro and a growth of 71%. Moreover, the Group’s total assets reached 971 million euros, of which 46 million composed by liquidity assets.

Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group, commented: "The fantastic results of 2017 satisfy us but do not surprise us, because they are the mathematical and natural product of the extraordinary commitment that the whole Group has expressed over the last years. We know very well the formula for double-digit growth, in a single-digit growing market, and we have been testing it for a long time: making boats more and more beautiful, unique and inimitable, investing in Research and Development to combine the excellence of the Made in Italy style with technological avant-garde, that only a Group with our history can boast.

The numbers prove it: thanks to the decisive support of the Weichai Group and Mr. Piero Ferrari, the company has achieved a record profit this year, rose to 24 million euros. By decision of the shareholders, the cycle profit will be entirely reinvested in Research and Development on new models, which will be added to the 30 developed in recent years. The production capacity of the Group's 6 shipyards and the workforce also grew, demonstrating that yachting, if managed at best, creates important job opportunities in Italy as well.

The brilliant results we have presented today are largely generated by the success of the new serial models, presented in the four-year period 2015-2018, products of great success on the international markets which accounted for about 68% of the total sales value last year.

Thanks to the investments allocated, to those planned for the year and an ever-expanding and varied fleet, we are aiming to grow even more, with increasingly surprising percentages, thus creating a solid basis for the development of the next industrial plan, which will be presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival, next September."

After completing the three-year plan with optimal performance and having fully regained the leadership of the sector, Ferretti Group confirms the strategic direction already outlined and successfully pursued during the last four years: from 2015 to the end of 2018, 90.8 million euros have been invested and allocated to new investments in R&D and in new products development, for a total of 30 new models, of which 8 only in 2018.

The outlook for 2018 foresees a production value of 704 million euros.

The 2018 project also includes a recruitment plan of 80 people in all the shipyards, located in Lombardy, Liguria, Emilia Romagna and Marche. The recruitment will focus in particular on the Ancona shipyard, dedicated to the construction of the large steel and aluminum boats CRN, Riva, Pershing, and the Custom Line fibreglass boats.

Ferretti Yachts 670: room for beauty

Ferretti Yachts 670: room for beauty

The design of the new Ferretti Yachts flybridge was presented at Boot Düsseldorf. Its many strong points include innovative space planning, which guarantees an exceptional sailing experience. Debut: summer 2018.

The Ferretti Yachts 670 is the first gift from the shipyard to itself and the whole nautical world as part of the spectacular celebrations of its 50th anniversary in 2018. Officially presented at boot Düsseldorf, the fantastic flybridge has taken the style, comfort and performance that have always been part of the brand’s DNA to an even higher level.

A product of the partnership between the Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department and its Product Strategy Committee, it is the first Ferretti Yachts creation with an exterior to be jointly designed by the Ferretti Group and the architect Filippo Salvetti. The interiors are by the Group’s architects and designers.

The Ferretti Yachts 670 is the natural heir to the shipyard’s popular 65-footer and manufacturing work will start on the first unit in January 2018. As part of a smart evolution process, it will combine some of the characteristics of the models launched in 2016 and 2017 (Ferretti Yachts 450, 780, 850 and 920) with some significant new features. They include exceptional space optimization in both the interior and the exterior, which instantly catches the eye and offers owners and their guests the perfect blend of socializing and independence. The Ferretti Yachts 670 measures 67 feet (20.24 metres) but it boasts a number of solutions that tend to be associated with larger vessels. The approach taken is plain to see from the layout: the standard version has 3 very sizeable cabins on the lower deck.

The sleek lines and clean-cut shapes of the aerodynamic exterior design follow in the wake of the success enjoyed by the last Ferretti Yachts creations to be presented in 2017: the 780 and the 920.

EXTERIORS
To the stern there is a large swimming platform with a vertical tender lift that can accommodate a 3.5 m jet tender. Among the distinctive features in this area are two storage compartments: one in the upper part and one in the lower part of the stern sofa. A Seabob can be kept in the latter.

A truly innovative space optimization solution can be found in the outside forward area: three substantial sofas face each other and dominate the large living area, making the most of the potential for relaxation. On request, it is possible to put two dining tables facing each other alongside the side sofas. They can also be converted into relaxation surfaces, making the whole area into one big sun pad.

With approximately 25 m² of surfaces, the large flybridge is the most competitive in its class. Free-standing furniture can be chosen in the stern and there will be a fully equipped bar on the left of the central zone, facing an entertainment area with a C-shaped sofa and a dining table. Heading forward, you come to a second control station on the left and then a very large sun pad. Ferretti Yachts proposes 3 different layouts for the flybridge: a standard open version, a version with a roll bar for the satellite systems that can also accommodate a bimini top, and a hard top version.

INTERIORS
A glass door in the cockpit opens up onto the main deck lounge, where there are two big sofas either side of a central coffee table. Further along is a dining area with an open galley and a dining table opposite it. Past the galley is the helm station: a cutting-edge technical area with integrated instrumentation for monitoring the main functions, as inspired by the innovative solution found on the Ferretti Yachts 780 and 920.

Another noteworthy feature is the new electro-hydraulic steering system that has already been seen on other recent creations by Ferretti Yachts. Among its many benefits are greater steering comfort thanks to the extremely easy handling of the helm and maximum efficiency when turning, even at high speeds.

Moving along, to starboard there is a door that provides direct access to the helm station from outside. Hidden under the steps to the lower deck is a space that can be used as an additional stowage compartment.

Below decks, even in the standard version there are 3 cabins, thus underlining that the goal of optimizing space has been achieved. The owner’s suite is located in the centre of the yacht. It has a large study that acts as an antechamber. The bed is in the centre of the room, and towards the stern behind it are a walk-in wardrobe on the port side and a large bathroom to starboard. This layout offers better soundproofing against the noise from the engine room, which is another significant benefit of the design.

There is the option of replacing the study next to the owner’s cabin with a fourth, smaller cabin or a laundry room. On the starboard side there is a double cabin, while the foredeck is home to the VIP cabin. Both have a bathroom and separate shower.

On the lower deck there is also a crew cabin with a bathroom. It is at the far end of the stern and it has easy access to the cockpit thanks to built-in steps.

The interior design is inspired by Oriental trends and a big part is played by linear units and strips of wood, with contrasting light and dark hues. Wood, leather and lacquered surfaces are the materials of choice.
A number of metal items in the lounge and bronze glass pieces in the owner’s cabin have a big visual impact.

A special Tai He Ban version of the Ferretti Yachts 670 will be available especially for the Asia Pacific market, with the galley below decks and an “entertainment room” on the main deck.

ENGINES
The Ferretti Yachts 670 will be fitted with twin MAN engines rated at 1000 mhp, giving it a cruising speed of 25 knots and a top speed of 28 knots (preliminary data). Alternatively, customers can order twin MAN engines providing 1200 mhp, for a cruising speed of 28 knots and a top speed of 32 knots (preliminary data). On request, the yacht can be fitted with a joystick for manoeuvring and no fewer than two Seakeeper systems for maximum stability at anchor.

Ferretti Yachts celebrates its 50th anniversary with Andrea Dovizioso as a special gift

Thanks to the sponsorship agreement announced during the press conference at BOOT Düsseldorf, Ferretti Yachts will be featured on the race suit of the champion from Forlì in all the 19 rounds of MotoGP 2018.

Ferretti Yachts crosses the landmark finish line of fifty years in business, with its string of stunning yachts and successes, and signs a prestigious sponsorship agreement with a champion who has crossed many finish lines and will cross many more.

The Forlì shipyard – which has strong links with the city, where the Headquarters of the whole Ferretti Group are and will continue to be located, right next to one of the Ferretti Yachts production facilities – has decided to sponsor the motorcycle racer Andrea Dovizioso from Forlì, one of the stars of last year's championship season with 6 successes and an amazing 2nd place in the final standings. The Ferretti Yachts brand will feature on the sleeve of the motorcycle racer's suit during the 19 rounds of GP 2018, from its début in Qatar (18 March) through to the final race in Valencia (18 November).

The sponsorship was announced during the Group's press conference at Boot Düsseldorf, Germany's leading boat show, where Ferretti Yachts is showcasing the Ferretti Yachts 920 in world première and the Ferretti Yachts 450. On the evening of the same day, a cocktail party by invitation hosted in the Group's stand launched the official opening of the 50th anniversary celebrations.

Andrea Dovizioso, who is currently engaged on the training rounds, sent a video with his greetings to the Düsseldorf conference, welcoming the news of the sponsorship with the following enthusiastic words: “Ferretti Yachts is the dream boatyard. Ever since I was a little boy, I was fascinated by the magnificent yachts I saw being transported along the road, bound for the sea. Now, having this world-renowned winner brand on my racing suit gives me a special boost and makes me very proud. After a fantastic 2017, 2018 is a crucial year for me, and this sponsorship will stimulate me into performing even better.”

Alberto Galassi, CEO of the Ferretti Group, warmly welcomed the agreement between Ferretti Yachts and Andrea Dovizioso, and had this to say: “Seeing these two champions of Italian excellence coming together makes me extremely proud. We wondered for a long time what would be the most appropriate way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ferretti Yachts, and the sponsorship of Andrea seemed like the most natural and most rewarding choice for one of our best-known brands. Andrea is a 'product of excellence', if I may put it that way, of our local area, a huge champion and a longstanding friend of our boatyard. His courage, his personality, and his talent are the same qualities that have led Ferretti Yachts to produce world-class boats. 2018 is going to be a great year for this outstanding motorcycle racer and for our extraordinary yachts.”
