The Group continues to expand into Asia, the Shanghai office complementing the already up and running Hong Kong and Qingdao locations.
The showroom in Shanghai sits on the bank of Huangpu River. It exudes elegance, Italian style and Made in Italy quality, which are the key values of the Ferretti Group.
The showroom design is by Officina Italiana Design – the studio that designed the whole Riva fleet and also the previous showroom in Qingdao.
The opening demonstrates yet again Ferretti Group’s determination to expand its Mainland China business as well as the brand awareness and reputation in the most important market of Asia Pacific. 10 years ago, Ferretti Group pioneered the global luxury yacht industry by opening an office in Shanghai. Today, after years of effort and investment, Ferretti Group is leading the industry in a fast growing market. The celebration is for those past years; it also marks the beginning of an exciting era.
“We are honoured to announce the opening of Ferretti Group’s Shanghai showroom, an important event that marks the next step of our growth and development in Asia Pacific," says Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO. “With this opening, which is part of the series of global activities pursued over recent years, Ferretti Group has reinforced its international presence further, while paying increasing attention to local needs. China is becoming a strategic centre in the high-end leisure industry and aims to become a key market in Asia Pacific in the coming years. Therefore I would like to thank the Weichai Group for its constant backing and support that it continues to guarantee for us and am confident that the opening of this first flagship showroom in Shanghai will contribute to promoting Ferretti Group’s operations in the country.”
