Ferretti Group opens boat show season with exclusive event in Monaco

17 September 2023 •

Running between 7 - 10 September, Ferretti Group’s Private Preview returned to Monaco’s Port Hercule with a fleet of 20 yachts from across several of the Group’s seven shipyards. The event premiered five long-awaited debuts, including the Riva 82 Diva, the Pershing GTX 116 and the Ferretti Yachts InFYnito 90.

Hosted annually in partnership with the Yacht Club de Monaco, the Private Preview aims to offer an exclusive setting for clients and dealers to view new models ahead of the Cannes, Genoa and Monaco boat shows. Alongside tours, meetings and sea trials, the event also hosted an on-the-water concert by VMA-winning rock band Måneskin and a dining experience by two-Michelin star chef Antonio Mellino. More than 600 guests were in attendance and most of the Yacht Club and Port Hercules were at the private disposal of Ferretti Group and clients. 

Guests included Formula 1 superstar Charles Leclerc and Italian actor-producer Pierfrancesco Favino. The pair are long-time Ferretti Group supporters, having starred in Riva’s “The Persuaders!” film alongside David Beckham.

Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi took to the stage to share a few words alongside Yacht Club de Monaco general secretary Bernard d'Alessandri. Leclerc described the event as a “huge honour to be a part of the family of Ferretti Group”.
