– Two units already sold in a few months in Thailand and Australia
– Asia Pacific Premiere on the occasion of Ferretti Group Open Days in Hong Kong
– Important recognitions at the Asia Pacific Boating Awards 2017
27 April 2017 – The appeal of the new Ferretti Yachts 850 is growing by leaps and bounds. The maxi flybridge, outfitted in the renowned Tai He Ban version, with decor and furnishings designed ad hoc to respond to the tastes and uses of Asian owners, also enchanted viewers in Hong Kong.
The occasion was the fourth edition of Ferretti Group Open Days, the event that Ferretti Group Asia Pacific has organised for two years in its own private marina in Aberdeen as a premiere showing of the latest models launched in Asia to owners, guests and journalists.
Following its huge international success – 10 units sold, 2 of which in Asia Pacific – Ferretti Yachts 850 will soon land in Australia and Thailand, the destination countries for the units sold in the region.
The special preview in Hong Kong and the upcoming arrival in these two strategic markets of the Asia Pacific region follow just a few weeks after the honours received at the Asia Pacific Boating Awards 2017, held in Singapore at the beginning of April, where Ferretti Yachts 850 triumphed in the category “Best Flybridge Yacht (above 80 feet)”.
This triumph was ensured by the yacht’s refined design and stylistic features that provide an unparalleled navigation experience.
Ferretti Yachts also won in the category “Best Brand Presence in China”, further underscoring its role as the absolute leader of the nautical sector in China and in the Asian markets in general.
The Awards are given annually by Blu Inc Media Ltd., a luxury publishing house that publishes the most important magazines.
