Ferretti Group has launched Club B, the 36th hull of the Ferretti Yachts 780 model and the first new build to be launched at the Cattolica shipyard since a yacht under construction caught fire on January 11. Club B features a Classic-themed interior by IdeaeItalia, using walnut, brushed oak and Carrara marble, while outdoor sofas are from Roda’s custom collection designed exclusively for Ferretti Yachts.
Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group, said the shipyard would also be launching a new hull of its flagship Ferretti Yachts 1000, “making it clear that the Cattolica Shipyard is more active and stronger than ever, ready to mark 2022 with many more magnificent projects”.
With the production site back to full capacity, the launch of the Ferretti Yachts 780, for a Maltese owner, gave cause for celebration at the shipyard, which is on the north of Italy’s east coast, facing the Adriatic Sea.

“The launch of this Ferretti Yachts 780 Club B marks the return to our extraordinary normality. At Cattolica, speed and quality go hand in hand. It is fantastic to see the shipyard get back to full operational capacity in such a short time,” Galassi said.
“I will never be able to adequately praise or thank all the people in the area and at Ferretti Yachts who have worked tirelessly to get us back to doing what we are famous for around the world: building and delivering dream yachts to our customers. Our thanks once again to the Municipal Administration and all the local authorities in this fantastic area.”
The newly updated Ferretti Yachts 780 features the option of Classic or Contemporary mood themes by IdeaeItalia, which designed the interiors for the Ferretti Yachts 500 launched in 2020 and the flagship 1000 released last year. Two units of the newly styled Ferretti Yachts 780 arrived in Singapore late last year through dealer Hong Seh Marine after being sold in the second quarter of 2020.
