Ferretti Group Open Days 2016 Hong Kong

Ferretti Group Open Days 2016

  • Ferretti Group Asia Pacific announces the 2nd of its 'Open Days', to take place at the Group's Service Centre in Hong Kong, 10 to 12 June 2016.
  • On display: three Ferretti Yachts in the 'Tai He Ban' special edition: Ferretti Yachts 960, Ferretti Yachts 870 and the brand new Ferretti Yachts 700, Asia Pacific première.

Following on from the open day in March, Ferretti Group Asia Pacific is ready to welcome guests to another 'Ferretti Group Open Days' weekend at its Hong Kong Service Centre, in Aberdeen, Hong Kong.

On display will be three amazing Ferretti Yachts maxi flybridge yachts, all in the 'Tai He Ban' special edition: the brand's flagship Ferretti Yachts 960, the Ferretti Yachts 870 and the Ferretti Yachts 700 - showing in the Asia Pacific region for the first time.

The three motor yachts are the outcome of the long-standing cooperation between Zuccon International Project and Ferretti Group's Engineering Department, representing the epitome of style, elegance and performance; the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship driven by even finer Italian design, and backed by the ultimate in Italian engineering. With the 'Tai He Ban' special edition, Ferretti Yachts has fine-tuned their already-perfect yachts to a new level of excellence aimed specifically at the Asian market. Through unique and particular surface finishes, trims and upholsteries, Ferretti Yachts have delivered something new and exclusive.

"We are looking forward to hosting our customers and friends 'at home', to show three magnificent examples of the latest Ferretti Yachts production," said Stefano de Vivo, Ferretti Group Chief Commercial Officer. "We will present once again the brand's flagship FY960, in addition to the FY870 that has become one of the brand's best sellers in this region. Last but not least, we're proud to introduce the Ferretti Yachts 700, one the six brand new models launched just last autumn. After the worldwide debut in Europe and the American première, the yacht has now arrived in Asia, in the exclusive 'Tai He Ban' edition."

Ferretti Yachts 700 Tai He Ban
NEW: Ferretti Yachts 700
The Ferretti Yachts 700 'Tai He Ban' on display is an absolute first for both Hong Kong and in the Asia Pacific region. It has an aggressive, streamlined profile which is one of the most sporty in the brand's history.

The aerodynamic design is particularly evident in the lengthened flybridge, with satellite systems and antennas housed in the Vulcan Grey roll bar above. The long glazed surface on deck runs from stem to stern, cuttingĀ through the profile of the yacht. This flybridge yacht can accommodate up to six guests: just perfect for a long weekend with friends. The breathtaking one-level walk-through saloon stretches all the way from the aft cockpit to the helm station, and the windows let in so much light they may as well not be there at all.

The brand's largest-ever planing yacht can be used as a pleasure vessel even without a professional captain. This flagship yacht offers three engine options, all from MTU. The Ferretti Yachts 960 'Tai He Ban' on display in Hong Kong is equipped with a pair of 2,638hp 16V M94 engines. It can reach a maximum speed of 30 knots and cruise at 26 knots: amazing performance from a vessel that boasts a sumptuous interior decor features such as marble surfaces and back-lit onyx panelling in the saloon.

The Ferretti Yachts 870 'Tai He Ban' that saw her sister launched and sold during the Hong Kong Gold Coast Boat Show 2015, is now displayed and ready for sea trials. The interior layout, on both the main and lower decks, has been entirely redesigned and customised, with the bar unit to starboard featuring a high-gloss wooden top and a semi-precious onyx panel front.

The lower deck layout stands out for the flawless arrangement of the areas devoted to entertainment and the guest accommodation. Moreover, this edition's interiors have been specifically designed to host business meetings and official receptions as well as informal events, and its décor solutions have been carefully developed to suit this purpose.
