Ferretti Group Brazil open showroom in São Paulo
By Rebecca Dark
Ferretti Group’s Brazil division has opened a new showroom in a prestigious shopping mall in São Paulo, expanding their presence in the Brazilian superyacht market.
Tools and Toys is set out over 1000 sqm of space and offers an array of commodities such as the Sikorsky S-76D, yachts, trikes, jet skis, and luxury watch brand Parmigiani Fleurier. The showroom is set in the exclusive shopping centre Cidade Jardim.
Commercial success swiftly followed after the showroom's opening, which was attended by over 500 people, with four Ferretti yacht models being sold within three days.
The opening follows Ferrettigroup Brazil’s recently established assistance with sales and after-sales services for Ferretti Group yachts on the Brazilian market and a collaboration set up in April with São Paulo based yacht production and sales company, Spirit.
The Spirit manufacturing facility is due to open at the end of the year to further the company’s production capacity with the Ferretti Group. The 32,000 sqm factory, located near São Paulo, will be capable of producing 130 yachts annually with a maximum length of 80m when fully operational.
“The inauguration of Tools &Toys, along with the forthcoming opening of the new Spirit factory in São Paulo clearly demonstrates the dynamism with which Ferrettigroup Brazil aims to seize the challenges of this important market and best satisfy the demands of clients in this country,” said Lamerto Tacoli, chief sales and marketing officer for the Ferretti Group.
