Custom Line Launches 11 Superyachts in First Half of 2020
Custom Line has completed 11 hulls from 33m upwards this year, with a total LOA of 386m, and plans to launch another eight by year end.
Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, Custom Line has launched a remarkable 11 yachts with a combined length of 1,266ft (386m) in the first six months of this year.
The launches included four units of the new Custom Line 106’ (hulls three to six) and two of the 120’ (hulls four and five), both from the brand’s planing line.
Five semi-displacement Navettas were also launched, comprise three units of the Navetta 33 (hulls 11, 12 and 14), one 37 (hull nine) and a 42 (hull four), the current 137ft flagship.
Custom Line is scheduled to launch another eight hulls by the end of 2020 at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard shipyard in Ancona, a world-class naval hub spanning over 80,000sqm with a private marina covering more than 23,000sqm of water.
Along with eight hulls at the completion and dock-testing stage prior to delivery, Custom Line has a further 13 yachts under construction in its five dedicated work sheds at the Ancona site. The yachts undergo their final fitting-out and completion work at the docks, followed by testing and sea trials.
Each customer and their team receive personal attention throughout all phases of the project, from production and launch to delivery and beyond, with ongoing after-sales support. The yard also provides dedicated offices and facilities at the disposal of captains and crew.
As well as all Custom Line models, the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard also builds all of the CRN megayachts, and the largest Riva and Pershing yachts made of steel and aluminium.
A wise shipyard knows that it's not always about re-inventing the wheel. When a design is proven to work well, a smart approach is to recreate the yacht's best attributes in a different size, attracting a different client base.
