Ferretti Yachts began as two brothers selling other yacht lines and then choosing to begin construction of their own line of yachts. Norberto and Alessandro Ferretti started the company in 1968. Today, Ferretti encompasses a number of companies and yacht brands. Ferretti constructs yachts at three different shipyards in Italy: the original shipyard S. Giovanni in Marignano, the headquarters in Forli, and Cattolica, the most advanced facility where up to 16 yachts can be built at one time. Ferretti also has a research and design center in Forli, where ideas are originated with the latest computer technologies.
Quality and technological innovation have been the two forces driving Ferretti’s production. The company has consolidated skills in combining high performance with design, ergonomics, form and function. A team of over 60 specialists supervises the progress of a Ferretti yacht, from design to construction. Even though manufacturing techniques are continuously updated, the traditional craftsmanship remains unchanged. The design process is entrusted to the Company’s research office, Ferretti Engineering, where all stages of planning are performed. Ferretti yachts are three-dimensionally modeled and tested long before the vessel actually floats.
