  • Industrial: economy of scale in procurement and more efficient absorption of fixed costs.

Net Profit of Euro 60.5 million in 2022, increasing compared to 2021 (Euro 37.4 million), with a margin of 6.1% in 2022, increasing 170 basis points compared to 2021 (4.4%).

Outlook
The global boating market, with a size of approximately EUR 24 billion in 2022, is a sector that is growing significantly and is expected to reach a value of more than EUR 29 billion by 2025. Therefore, given the constantly changing context mentioned above, between 2022 and 2025 the number of potential end customers (i.e. VHNWI and UHNWI) will greatly increase with, in particular, a compound annual growth rate of 7.7% and 7.8% respectively; moreover, the penetration of luxury boating among potential final customers is still less than 1%, a figure that reveals a huge potential for growth.
In the future, leveraging its unique business model, the strong heritage of iconic brands, the unparalleled attention to product excellence and innovation, the tailored approach and its sales model, the Group will focus on:

  • the adaptation and improvement of the offer and the mix of products based on the evolution of market trends and customer expectations, with the aim of consolidating the market leadership in both large Composite and Made-to measure segments, focusing on those with the greatest potential for growth and margins
  • the expansion of the Made-to-measure portfolio in larger alloy yachts, thanks to our iconic brands such as Riva, Wally, Pershing and Custom Line, with the aim of satisfying as many potential customers as possible, maintaining the distinctive exclusivity and satisfying the need of greater customization. So doing, we will be able to meet the market demand for yachts with greater dimensions leveraging on the know-how and the acquired experience with CRN and the recent successes of Pershing 140 and Riva 50 Meters.
  • the vertical integration of strategic and high value-added activities, to ensure excellence in the luxury design, performance, quality and reliability of our yachts and to support our future growth and the expansion of the product portfolio.
  • the improvement of the overall offer, with the aim of strengthening the resilience and profitability of the business, by, also, the consolidation of some vertical activities like the yacht brokerage service, the refitting service, the brand extension activities and the Ferretti Security Division operations.

On March 8, 2023, the board of directors of the Company proposed dividend of €19,903 thousand (equal to €5.88 cents per share), which is subject to the approval of the Company’s shareholders at the forthcoming annual general meeting.
