Industry News

The Ferretti Group has signed an agreement with Brazilian boatbuilder and broker Spirit for the sale and after-sales assistance of all Ferretti Group brand yachts on the South American market.

APRIL 2010

A new brand name, Ferrettigroup Brasil, has been created for the purpose; it will be managed by Marcio Latorre Christiansen, founder and CEO of Spirit. Ferretti Yachts first started working with Spirit in ’89 and has never stopped. Early on the company began building Ferretti models under licence as a means of avoiding punitive taxes on imports and the association has expanded thereafter.
This most recent agreement will be announced officially during the Rio Boat Show 2010 (April 10-16).
By the end of June 2010 Ferrettigroup Brasil will open a 1,000m2 (10,800ft2) showroom at the Cidade Jardim luxury mall in Sao Paolo. The retail facility will display yachts alongside luxury cars and helicopters.
The Ferretti Group is a portfolio of yacht brands including Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, Itama, Riva, Mochi Craft, Custom Line, CRN and Bertram.
Spirit was founded in ‘92 and is a builder and distributor of new and pre-owned yachts in Brazil and other countries in Central and South America.
The Sao Paolo-based company employs over 400 people.
