The main venue of the second China International Import Expo (CIIE) welcomed its first resident: the first exhibit of this year.

The giant piece named FSD 195, is a fast patrol vessel with a 20-metre displacement. Weighing 37 tons with a length of 20 meters, it was shipped from the Genova port of Italy to Shanghai via Qingdao. The whole journey took over a month. On the evening of October 22, it finally arrived at the square of the CIIE exhibition center. However, as the height of the ship is 7.8 meters, taller than the gate of the exhibition venue, the ship had to be disassembled in advance.

This year, Ferretti’s booth covers around 200 square meters, the same as last year, said Luca Pelosio, chief engineer of the FSD Public Service Ship Division of Ferretti. “Last year, we brought two leisure yachts here to the CIIE. Though we only have one physical exhibit here for this year, it is bigger and contains more technologies,” added Luca.

He continued to introduce the features of FSD 195. According to him, the fast patrol vessel can be widely applied in fields such as coast guard rescue and border defense. Though it has been on the market for less than 3 years, it has sold well in Europe. “We really hope that FSD 195 can open the public service ship market in China for us.”
