V Yachts Asia has unveiled Ferretti Group’s Ferretti 500 and Riva 76’ Perseo in Thailand for the first time. The double debut took place at the recent Thailand Yacht Show (Pattaya) 2022, which ran June 9-12.
“When you experience the enthusiasm displayed by visitors at the recent Thailand Yacht Show 2022 in Pattaya, it is clear that the luxury yachting segment continues to gain popularity across the region,” says Khun Chanyo Manakulsawasd, country manager for V Yachts Asia.
“Industry sources believe strongly that future global superyacht market growth is going to come from Asia, especially the northeast Asian countries neighbouring Pattaya and the Gulf of Thailand. Making their Thailand debut at the show were two yachts in our collection – the beautiful, ultra-luxurious sport-fly, Riva 76 Perseo Super alongside the new-style Ferretti 500. We were thrilled, but not surprised, that both yachts drew great interest from show visitors, leading finally to the successful conclusion of both sales,” he adds.
The brand new Ferretti 500, priced at 54 million baht, (US$1.5m) is a planing flybridge yacht, just over 15 metres long with three generous guest cabins and a top speed of 30 knots. The Riva 76’ Perseo Super is a popular Riva sport-fly with an elegant design and high-performance specs. Priced at 180 million baht (US$5.1m), it has an overall length of 23.25 metres and a beam of 5.75 metres. Fitted with two MAN V12 V-engines rated 1,800 HP each, it achieves an impressive top speed of 37 knots.
“Our company’s motto is to offer the ultimate yachting experience to customers who wish to have their own private place on the water and experience the sea in ways they never imagined,” says Manakulsawasd. “With V Yachts’ collection of some of the world’s most outstanding superyachts and our reputation as a high profile company managed by a capable, well-respected team – as well as representing Ferretti Group, an icon of the nautical industry – our customers are assured of safety, trustworthiness and reliability as they venture into the fascinating world of yachting with us.”
