Ferretti launches latest Custom Line 112 superyacht for Chinese owners
by Raphael Montigneaux
The first day of spring was marked by the launch of hull 28 of the Custom Line 112 Next series at Ferretti's Ancona yard.
During a private ceremony the 34 metre planing motor yacht was christened by her Chinese owners from the real estate company Xanadu South China Sea, which is building a luxury resort and residential complex on the island of Hainan. The yacht, which will be berthed at the resort's private yacht marina, will be at the disposal of guests, and will enhance the luxury offering of the resort which includes a five star hotel, villas, a spa, conference centre and helicopter landing pad. She will be one of the largest motor yachts manufactured in Europe to sail in Chinese waters.
The Custom Line 112 Next is designed by Advanced Yacht Technology and Zuccon International Project in collaboration with the Centro Stile Ferrettigroup. Her interior layout accommodates 10 guests in a master suite on the main deck and four spacious guest cabins with large open view windows on the lower deck. Powered by twin 2,775hp MTU engines, this motor yacht can reach a top speed of 26 knots.
'Today's launching of the Custom Line 112’ Next makes us particularly proud,' said Lamberto Tacoli, chief sales and marketing officer of the Ferretti Group, 'Landing in China, a strategic market of great opportunities, with such an important boat is indeed a very positive threshold for all of us.'
