Five boats will be on display around the floating stand for Ferretti: 88’ Domino Super, Ferretti Yachts 550 and the three local premieres, Riva 100’ Corsaro, Ferretti Yachts 780 and Pershing 70.
The wide-bodied Corsaro is the first model of the new flybridge generation. Its sharp profile evokes the shape of an arrow with metallic colours in dark tones and large glass surfaces.

The Ferretti 780 is a 24m boasting an aerodynamic design with sleek lines and clean shapes, while the Pershing 70 is a ‘fighter aircraft’ with two large side wings.
Also bringing five models to the show, Azimut is debuting its Grande 27 Metri, Verve 40 and the 60 model in the Middle East.

The 27 Metri is the winner of the ‘Most Achieved Trophy’ in the 80-125ft category at the World Yacht Trophies, and a collaboration by Stefano Righini and Achilie Salvagni.
The Verve 40 is the first all-Italian Weekender, which combines typical features of the traditional American walk-around and day cruiser. Its main features include the steering console with styling inspired by automotive design and the spacious under-deck area.

Designed again by Righini, the Azimut 60 is an 18m yacht with exterior characterised by the vertical bow and big pilothouse windows, which are full-height on the starboard.
Among the fleet, the Italian shipyard is also showcasing the Magellano 76 and the 77S.
