Ferretti Yachts 960 receives the 'Most Innovative' Award at the 'World Yacht Trophies' in Cannes
Wed 17 September 2014
Forlì, 17th September 2014 - Ferretti Yachts, the iconic brand of the Ferretti Group representing the excellence of the Made in Italy boating industry, has been awarded with an important international prize. The flagship Ferretti Yachts 960 has been recognised as the “Most Innovative” yacht during the “World Yacht Trophies” Awards Gala at the 2014 Cannes Yachting Festival 2014.
At the ceremony, which took place on 13th September at the enchanting plage of the Intercontinental Carlton hotel in Cannes, the Ferretti Yachts 960 was awarded with the Innovation prize in the category for the best models between 80 and 120 feet.
The panel assigned this important award to Ferretti Yachts 960 specifically for the introduction of the aft floodable garage, which allows launching the tender in an extremely easy and safe way. Thanks to this system, which does not require the use of a davit, guests are able to enjoy wider spaces and the operations of the crew are made easier.
This much-appreciated innovation has contributed to the positive sales trend of this model, which was the result of a collaboration between Studio Zuccon International Project, AYT&D - Advanced Yacht Technology, the R&D department of the Group, and Centro Stile. Eight hulls have been sold in just one year, leading the Group to install this solution on all of the latest models presented in Cannes. For example, the brand new Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28 has been enhanced by the Dual Mode Transom (the double movement door) which is an exclusive Ferretti Group patent.
This latest award complements the Ferretti Group's win in the 2014 Motor Boat Awards in the “Custom Yachts” category, which was received in January at the London Boat Show.
