Ferretti Group’s Prestigious Annual ‘Private Preview’ with Rock Legend, Sting Leads to the Winning of 6 World Yacht Trophies.

An annual event in collaboration with Yacht Club de Monaco 4 years running, this is the ultimate VVIP night held for the ultra elites – yacht owners, clienteles and guests of Ferretti Group and Yacht Club de Monaco – dedicated to the private presentation in absolute preview of the entire fleet of Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, Riva, Itama, CRN and Custom Line – just a few days before the world premiere at Cannes Yachting Festival 2018.

Titled Fields of Gold, special guests of Ferretti Group were treated to an exclusive concert by British singer-songwriter and rock legend, Sting in the extraordinary settings of Monte-Carlo and surrounded by a fleet of over 30 vessels representing the Group’s brands.

Mesmerised by the classic and timeless “Every Breath You Take”, the seductive “Roxanne”, the soothing “Fields of Gold” and more, the audiences were indeed enchanted into the unforgettable night.

“Eclectic and refined musician, Sting has been collecting hits for over 40 years reinterpreting his unique musical style” – said the CEO of Ferretti Group, Alberto Galassi. “Pushed by my personal friendship and admiration for this incredible artist, I am proud to have made Sting protagonist of our unmissable annual event in Monte-Carlo. The Star honoured us with a very exciting concert, intimate and amusing at the same time; an unrepeatable performance reserved for our shipowners and the members of the Yacht Club de Monaco, inaugurating the Private Preview, two days of onboard visits and sea trials on the Group’s fleet, including 6 world premiere”. 

“Consistent with our project “Monaco, Capital of Yachting”, we are happy, just a few days from the Cannes Yachting Festival and the Monaco Yacht Show, to give the start of the autumn season of the “Grande Plaisance” on the Cote d’Azur. Thanks to the collaboration of Ferretti Group, it was a great pleasure for us to welcome an artist like Sting, both for his musical talent and for his commitment to preservation and protection of the environment, a value dear to the Yacht Club de Monaco and the Principality. His outstanding performance was the further proof, we are all “mad about… him” declared Benard d’Allesandri, General Secretary of the Yacht Club of Monaco. 

These world premieres were made available for exclusive visits and sea trials, before they made way to Cannes for the 41st edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival: The mighty Navetta 42, the magnificent Custom Line 120′, the elegant Riva 66′ Ribelle, the Riva 110′ Dolcevita flybridge, the new Ferretti Yachts 670, the model of the 50th Anniversary of the brand, and M/Y CRN 50 Metri Latona.

Somewhat an Italian affair, alongside Ferretti Group in this special occasion was also Maserati – the automotive partner for the Private Preview as well as UnoPiù, a prestigious company for elegant outdoor furnishings of Made In Italy excellence. 

From Monaco to Cannes, where at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2018 closing ceremony, Ferretti Group was conferred a record of 6 World Yacht Trophies 2018 Awards for the wonderful Cannes premieres. From Fields of Gold to 6 World Yacht Trophies 2018 Awards – somewhat of a double celebration.

Mr. Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group further commented – “Winning is good for morals and for the method, because it repays the whole Group for the work done and tells us that we are doing things in the right way. When our boats are rewarded also by a great commercial success, as it is happening, our satisfaction is double. The challenge continues: with these awards we raise more and more the bar of beauty, style and performance that ourselves will be called to overcome with the next models. But this is the beauty of the challenge and of being Ferretti Group”
