About the Customer

Ferretti is an Italian multinational shipbuilding company headquartered in Forlì which specializes in the design, construction, and sale of luxury motor yachts. Its products are sold under the brands Ferretti Yachts, Custom Line, Pershing, Itama, Riva, Mochi Craft, and CRN.

Scope and Challenges

In 2016, in line with the new business strategy of the Italian Group has undertaken a series of investments aimed at the production of new boats. 

“We have traditionally relied on our deep knowledge of yacht design coupled with the finest expertise in hand-crafted production,” said Giuliano Capizzi, Ferretti Group chief information officer.

“We now need to digitally capture that knowledge and automate production to enhance global efficiency and data security."

Outcome and Implications

With Siemens’ PLM solution for ship design, we can reduce time and costs by digitalizing their entire process, making product data instantly available through Teamcenter, not only within the production process but also to the entire company.

And using NX, we expect to significantly accelerate product design and construction for new ships and boats.

To maintain its completive edge, Ferretti Group replaced its legacy CAD software with NX in order to establish a fully integrated 3D product development process for Ferretti Yachts.


“The boats created by Ferretti Group are characterized by high quality, high security and excellent performance at sea, as well as the exclusivity of the design and the timeless charm that make them highly recognizable in the nautical world,” said Franco Megali, managing director Italy and MEA, Siemens PLM Software, Italy.​​​​​​​
