Ferretti adds Navetta 42 to Custom Line series
by Simon Hardie
The Custom Line Navetta 42 will be the biggest Custom Line Navetta ever built. The addition of the new model marks the 20th anniversary of Ferretti Custom Line’s yacht building operations. Celebrations will also include the launch of the first Navetta 37.
Design for the 42 metre yacht comes from Zuccon International Project, which has worked in collaboration with the Ferretti Group’s strategic committee and engineering department. The launch of the first Navetta 42 is scheduled for 2018.
The semi-custom Navetta 42 has four fully customisable decks, which offer huge spaces for the owner and guests.
According to the yard, the well-designed layout of the new Navetta 42 “will ensure the most efficient organisation of on board flows, offering total privacy for the owner and the guests, and great freedom of movement for the captain and the crew.”
A spacious owner’s suite is situated on the main deck and the lower deck can be delivered with either four VIP suites or five guest suites. The separate crew area can accommodate six crew, with a private captain’s cabin located next to the bridge on the upper deck.
At the stern of the yacht a beach club opens up at sea level. This aft space is devoted to guest entertainment as a side opening tender garage keeps the launching and recovering of the tender and toys separate from the guest area.
The design comes with five different engine options to suit any buyer. Preliminary data suggests that the standard option will offer a transatlantic range of more than 3,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 10 knots.
The Navetta 37 and the Navetta 42 are added to Custom Line’s successful Navetta series. The Italian builder has already delivered more than ten Navetta 33 Crescendo’s and last year delivered the second Custom Line Navetta 28.
