Stars Rise in the East
Six Award-Winning New Yachts For Sale
A collection of new Ferretti Yachts, Riva, and CRN yachts – brands of the Ferretti Group – has won the experts’ hearts in the most discerning and fastest-growing luxury market in the world, Asia. The prestigious accolades re-confirm the Group’s leadership in the yachting space in this strategic territory.
Ferretti Group triumphed at the Oceanway China Yacht Annual Awards, held in Zhuhai China on 11 December 2020, in the presence of well-respected pundits in the sector. Four yachts received major awards for outstanding design, technological solutions, and style.
The new Ferretti Yachts 500, which has already sold 9 units since its launch last summer, won the highly competitive “Best Exterior Design (50ft-80ft)” category, thanks to its sleek aerodynamic lines that make this 50-footer flybridge truly special.
Among the big winners was our favorite Riva 48 Dolceriva, the innovative and most versatile open yacht from the historic Sarnico shipyard, that was crowned “Best Yacht of the Year (30ft-50ft)”.
Riva 50 Metri Superyacht topped the “Best Yacht of the Year (40-70m)” category, recognized as a masterpiece of marine engineering in steel and aluminium.
CRN Mimtee, a 79 m full-custom Megayacht, took home the “Best Exterior Design (over 70m)” award for the softly sleek and well-defined lines of the hull.
Additional recognition came from the trend-setting Robb Report China which, on 25 December 2020 in Beijing, named the Riva 88’ Folgore the “Best of the Best” in the “Yacht of the Year 2020 (below 100ft)” category. The new Riva sport-fly was admired as an exciting synthesis of an innovative vision and the stylistic traits of the Riva legend; an exceptional yacht that has conquered the hearts of owners all over the world. Promoted by the Chinese edition of the exclusive lifestyle magazine and arbiter of excellence in the international luxury market, each year the Robb Report awards select the best products across 12 different categories in the luxury sector.
Lastly, for the eighth year in a row, Ferretti Yachts was acclaimed “Best Luxury Yacht Brand 2021” during the award ceremony at the 17th Hurun Best of the Best Awards, held in Shanghai on 28 January 2021. The awards were determined based on the results of the Hurun China Luxury Consumer Survey 2021 conducted by Hurun Research Institute, the authoritative organization run by the famous business and lifestyle magazine that’s been ranking China’s richest since 1999.
In a particularly challenging year, Ferretti Group continued to stand out with exclusive craft that has significantly influenced the yachting world. Its successes have augmented the Group’s already dominant status in an increasingly competitive and strategic market like Asia, right on time to welcome the year of the Ox stronger than ever before.
