Custom Line developing flagship Navetta 50
The Ferretti Group superyacht builder is set to begin construction on a new aluminium flagship designed by Filippo Salvetti and ACPV.
Custom Line will begin construction of the first Navetta 50 at the end of the year, with the sub-500GT aluminium yacht joining the Ferretti Group brand’s displacement line and expected to be presented in 2024.
The design is a collaboration between Filippo Salvetti for exterior styling, Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel for interior architecture and decoration, Ferretti Group’s Strategic Product Department led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard Engineering Unit.
The yacht has a length of 49.9m and a beam of 9.6m. The beach club is in direct contact with the aft outdoor area on the main deck, which is fitted out as a private lounge. These two exterior spaces are integrated by a rectangular pool in the stern.
On the sun deck, the outdoor area in the bow can be used as a lounge and for refreshments, and can be customised with a Jacuzzi and solarium, while there’s over 70sqm of interior space reserved for the dining area and American bar.
The master suite is in the bow on the upper deck, has floor-to-ceiling windows offering a 180-degree view and has access to a large private terrace in the bow, complete with sunset solarium. There are four guest cabins on the lower deck, so there’s accommodation for 10 guests and nine crew including the captain.
Custom Line says the use of aluminium rather than steel reduces consumption by about 10-15 per cent compared to a 50m boat of the same size and volume. Hull one will also be SCR ready (Selective Catalytic Reduction).
In Ancona, the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard itself has a trigeneration plant producing electric, heat and cooling power, which reduces the consumption of electricity by up to 79 per cent and heat energy by 32 per cent, with annual primary energy savings of 20 per cent.
