AMSTERDAM ― The Ferretti Group achieved the Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement in the Innovative On Board Design Solution category. The Submersible Hatch system, designed by the Ferretti Group, was recognized as best in category.
The Submersicle Hatch system is included in the new Ferretti Yachts 850. The system allows the stern garage door to open and tilt down. Once the door is over the platform, it automatically aligns and then lowers diagonally under the water together with the central part of the platform. In this way, the garage is flooded to launch the tender and jet-ski. The platform can then be submerged to various depths, allowing guests to prepare for sea activities or simply relax in the water.
This successful solution not only enhances the owners’ enjoyment of their boats but presents outstanding engineering and design elements. It has been registered as a patent of the Ferretti Group and will be featured on future models, starting with the new Riva 100’ Corsaro.
The ceremony took place in Amsterdam during the Marine Equipment Trade Show. This event is organized by METSTRADE and International Boating Industry magazine.
