Two brothers, Alessandro and Norberto Ferretti, founded this shipbuilder in 1968. Ferretti was soon afterwards listed among the most prestigious shipyards in the world. In 1982, Ferretti presented its first motor yacht to the world. Those yachts featured revolutionary innovations which are still applied throughout the nautical industry, such as a stern helm position, swinging windows in the salon that open out onto the cockpit and an internal passage from the salon to the flying bridge. Today the brand builds flybridge planing yachts in GRP measuring 45 to 96 feet (14-29 meters) in length.
