“Singapore is home to Asia’s 1st 2 units of the restyled Ferretti Yachts 780, which features a refined exterior and exciting new interior options by IdeaeItalia that match the ‘Just Like Home’ concept introduced on the brand’s 500 and flagship 1000“– Paul Ebeling
When Ferretti Group’s Cattolica shipyard on Italy’s Adriatic coast launched its 1st yacht of Y 2022, it was notable that it was a Ferretti Yachts 780. Sales of the 24m model are already in the mid-40s, marking impressively consistent demand for a model that originally premiered at the Cannes Yachting Festival in Y 2017.
The demand is because the 780’s newly restyled version launched last yr features the same ‘Just Like Home’ concept introduced on the 500 and 1000, the brand’s 1st 2 models with interiors by IdeaeItalia.
The 2 owners from Singapore were the 1st in Asia and among the 1st around the world to benefit from the 780 restyle, which is built in Cattolica along with other 20-30m Ferretti Yachts models including the flagship 1000.
Both clients ordered their yachts though Singapore dealer Hong Seh Yachting in April 2020, when the VirusCasedemic looked like it was here to stay, and people quickly realized that weekends and holidays would be spent in their home nations for the foreseeable future.
The Director of Hong Seh Yachting, said: “It allowed the client to see first-hand how the 780 could be configured either with three or four cabins, and galley on the main or lower deck. These multiple configurations are unique for this category and stem from Ferretti Group’s experience of building larger yachts.
“The 780 appealed to our clients because of the yard’s flexibility to accommodate their customisations. It also helped that the model is RINA Category A, which allows her unrestricted navigation in open sea.”
Both the new 780s in Singapore feature the standard 4-cabin layout and IdeaeItalia’s Contemporary mood interior, an upgrade option as opposed to the more colorful Classic, which is offered as standard.
Have a healthy, prosperous week. Keep the Faith!
