First Ferretti Custom Line 108 superyacht is launched

First Ferretti Custom Line 108 superyacht is launched

Ferretti Group has launched its first Custom Line 108 superyacht. The new planing maxi yacht was announced by the Italian builder in December 2014 with two hulls already sold to European clients.

The Custom Line 108 inherits much of the DNA of the popular Custom Line 100, which is no longer in production but sold 14 models in three years. The Custom Line Planing range comprises a 97 and 124 – and now includes the 108 – while the Custom Line Navetta range comprises 28 and 33 metre models.

The newly launched Custom Line 108 is the product of a collaboration between Ferretti’s research and development department and design firm Zuccon International Project. With an LOA of 32.95 metres and a beam of 7.25 metre, it is characterised by larger interior volumes than her predecessor, gaining one square metre more on the main deck and the flybridge than the Custom Line 100.

The aft area also features more space thanks to Ferretti’s patented electrical-hydraulic system, Dual Mode Transom (DMT). This enables the aft transom doors to be opened upwards and downwards and creates a float-in garage fitting a five metre tender and jet ski, with a 15 square metre beach club. Elsewhere, the new 108 is marked by large amounts of glazing, notably in the master suite, giving panoramic views and increasing natural light. The hull windows of the four guest cabins have also been widened and are now rectangular. The main deck has been extended and boasts a new layout that sees the cockpit dominated by a large sunbathing area with a sofa and chaise longue which can face forwards or back. The central table seats eight people.

Up top, the customisable flybridge covers 36 square metres. There is an outdoor dining area, sheltered by a hardtop cover that can be fitted with a sliding Bimini top. Here guests can also enjoy a cocktail bar with a sink, bottle cooler and an ice maker.

Each Custom Line 108 yacht owner can work with an interior design according to their personal tastes. Hull No 1 features a mix of dark oak wood, leather, marble and a light-colour flooring. Ferretti’s interior design team have put a lot into the lighting, with LED spotlights specially designed for this model built into all ceiling panels and backlit edges to all the furniture in the main rooms. Meanwhile, the Custom Line 108 will be equipped with Ferretti’s VOTIS – Videoworks One Touch Infotainment System. This is a fully integrated entertainment system which can be managed from an iPad.

The new Custom Line 108 is powered by twin 2,638hp MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines, giving a predicted maximum speed of 26 knots and a cruising speed of 23 knots, with a range of 350 and 430 miles respectively. At 12 knots she should have a range of around 1,000 miles.

Now that the Custom Line 108 is launched, fitting out of the interior will be completed. She will then be delivered to her owner and enjoy time cruising in the South of France before making her public debut at the Cannes and Monaco boat shows this autumn.
