Ferretti Group's Mediterranean Retreats
Ferretti Group is the group of Italian shipyards taking the yachting world by storm. Proving it is much more than a collection of yacht builders, the group has released a review of its exclusive destinations in the Med, providing the ultimate choice of getaways this summer and bringing with it unmistakable Italian style and elegance.
Counted under the umbrella of Ferretti Group are the thriving superyacht builders CRN, Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, Custom Line and Wally. Each brand retains its own distinct appeal, from larger custom builds to sailing yachts or tenders. From acquisitions to public offerings, Ferretti Group’s prosperous agenda is not confined to the traditional realms of superyacht build.
In Porto Cervo, Italy, glamorous marina Waterfront Costa Smerelda is host to an intimate seafront VIP Lounge for the group. Here, shipowners and visitors can relax and soak up the stunning setting of the Sardinian coast, which is truly unlike any other in the world. The Riva temporary store is also ideally situated to while away an afternoon of boutique shopping. Ferretti Group’s luxury brand partners, including You Marina gourmet sushi and Phi Beach Club are also close at hand, while Jaguar Land Rover offers a test drive and courtesy car service as well as a refined gourmet experience at its Defender Privée.
The doors of the VIP Lounge and Riva temporary store will be open every day from 6:00pm to 1:00am for the duration of the summer, until 6 September.
Journey eastwards across the Mediterranean sea and you will find the Ibiza Pershing Yacht Terrace. This exclusive cocktail bar opened its doors last year at the world-class 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza to much acclaim. Created by Pershing architects and designers in the unique style of the Pershing range, this is the ultimate spot to unwind and enjoy a cocktail, as well as the unmissable views of Es Vedrà island.
And for those looking to escape the excitement of Ibiza island for more tranquil beaches, Ferretti Group’s Riva Privée at the “Molo 47” restaurant awaits visitors at the nearby beach of Formentera. Here, a uniquely Riva interior design has been created with aquamarine shades, chrome, steel and lacquered mahogany to evoke a sense of the iconic yacht and 1950s style.
The Croatian coastline along the Adriatic sea is one of the most stunning in the world, and Opatija one of the most picturesque towns along it. This makes for the ideal location of the Riva Lounge and Privée, while the nearby Ikador Hotel offers a private boat service on an Aquariva model.
The true heart and home of the Riva brand, and the final spot on Ferretti Group’s Mediterranean tour, is the historic city of Venice, of which the Gritti Palace takes pride of place at the heart of the city’s collection of beautiful hotels and sights. Here, the Riva Lounge on the terrace is esteemed for its breathtaking beauty and premier service. Riva furniture completes the romantic atmosphere, while unencumbered views of the Grand Canal and the Santa Maria della Salute Cathedral make for an unforgettable experience. Guests can be transported to and from the Lounge with access to an Aquariva model, ‘Il Doge’, creating a sense of ultimate exclusivity and luxury.
Stefano de Vivo, CCO of Ferretti Group, commented on the brand's various destinations across the med:
"The Ferretti Group Destinations are able to give everyone the opportunity to live an authentic experience beyond cruising on the magnificent boats of the Ferretti Group brands, to breathe the magic and get the values of each brand in these unique spaces spending great time and accessing exclusive benefits and bespoke experiences. Thanks to Riva Destinations and Pershing Terrace, the Group wants to enhance its brands and reflect the style and values that make them all unique, continuing to convey them in the luxury and lifestyle field, other than yachting."
