Ferretti Group has announced the hotly-anticipated launch of Custom Line’s brand new 42.61 metre flagship at its Ancona facilities.
Named Custom Line 140, the yacht aims to balance generous onboard spaces with optimal performance to create a leader in this size segment. As well as a fast-displacement hull that allows top speeds estimated at 21.5 knots, the yacht also has a roomy tri-deck design and a gross tonnage of almost 400GT.
The yacht’s impressive performance is matched by its sporty exterior aesthetic. Exterior and interior styling is by Florence-based studio Francesco Paszkowski Design. Her interior comes from a collaboration between Margherita Casprini and the Custom Line Atelier.
The yacht has been created in partnership with the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
Inspired by residential architecture and backed by in-depth research into shapes and volume, the yacht features a number of key design elements. These include painted aluminium handrail with Y-shaped uprights, ample hull windows and floor-to-ceiling glazing on deck that offers direct contact with the water, emphasised by the open stern rails.
Other key features include a 30-square metre owner’s cabin fitted with a double walk-in wardrobe and full-beam en suite, which can be fitted with a panoramic terrace if the owner so chooses. Buyers will also find a beach club that makes full use of the yacht’s 8.54 metre beam and a spacious sundeck with hydro massage tub and freestanding furniture.
The yacht’s interiors have been designed and built according to the highest standards of quality, in line with the expertise of the yacht project team, Custom Line Atelier, the production team and all the highly specialised craftsmen involved in the design and production process.
Accommodation is for 12 guests in five cabins, with further accommodation for a crew of seven.
Propulsion comes from a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines rated 2,638 mhp.
The Custom Line 140 is expected to begin sea trials soon, following which it will be delivered and will go on to make its debut at the September boat shows.
