These awards reconfirmed the Ferretti Group as one of the greatest examples of Made in Italy in the world.
Mochi Craft Long Range 23
Mochi Craft Long Range 23 hits another important goal at the Festival International de la Plaisance, first appointment of the nautical season 2009-2010. The revolutionary yacht which made it possible to cruise in “Zero Emission Mode” was the only boat winning two prizes: the “Trophée de l’Innovation 2009“and “Best Layout 2009” in the yachts below 24 meters category.
The prizes conferred by the experienced and international jury in the prestigious “World Yachts Trophies 2009” location – organized by LuxMedia Group and come to its seventh edition – reaffirmed Long Range 23 as the most innovative large pleasure boat equipped with hybrid propulsion system. It is in fact the only boat in the world to obtain the RINA “Green Star Clean Energy and Clean Propulsion” certification, the most rigorous certification standard that can be applied to a pleasure craft.
The “Best Layout” award for the yachts over 24 metres category also went to the Ferretti Group with Altura 840 winning gold! Altura 840 represents the perfect synthesis between the aft cabin motor yacht projects, with the master cabin aft, conceived for medium and long range cruising, and the flying bridge – based on a design solution that allows no compromises on the high quality, technology, comfort and design typical of Ferretti.
Altura 840 is a model especially addressed to “mature” owners with a nautical experience, looking for a very unique yacht to live the sea together with family and friends”, said Marco Segato, Vice President of Sale of Ferretti Yachts.
