Custom Line launches third Navetta 37 yacht
by Chris Jefferies
Stefano de Vivo, chief commercial officer of parent company Ferretti Group, said: “We are extremely proud of the launch of this third Navetta 37 because it is the first one fully built at the group’s renovated nautical hub in Ancona.”
He added that the fourth and fifth Navetta 37 yachts have already been sold, less than 12 months after the new model was introduced at the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival. Meanwhile, the second Custom Line Navetta 37 was launched in La Spezia last month and will be delivered this summer.
Exterior design by Zuccon International Project provides this all-GRP cruiser features an eight-metre beam and a 2.7 metre draught.
Accommodation is for ten guests split between five cabins, including a main deck owner’s cabin, two doubles and two twin rooms. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to seven people.
Key features include the Ferretti Group’s patented dual-mode transom system, which allows the transom to either pivot upwards on hydraulic struts to create a float-in tender garage, or be completely inverted to lie flush with the teak bathing platform.
Power comes from a pair of MTU 10V2000M94 diesel engines for a top speed of 16.5 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of ten knots, the Navetta 37 boasts a maximum cruising range of 3,000 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 35,000 litres.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the Navetta 33, which will get its debut at this year’s Cannes show, and the Navetta 42 — a planned 2018 launch.
