Superyacht 70-Summer 2021
The new Navetta from the Custom Line underscores the beginning of a new era revealing what we’ll be looking at in the future.
Custom Line’s new chapter kicks off with this new model which has sealed the beginning of a new collaboration between Gruppo Ferretti’s shipyard and architect Filippo Salvetti who designed the exterior lines re-interpreting in a contemporary and romantic spirit the rounded lines typical of yachts belonging to times gone. Rotundity is also very visible throughout the interiors where the architecture and design studio Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel developed custom decor inspired by yachting tradition, to some extent but underscored with much navy blue in terms of colour.
Ample use of block wood, leather and teak blended with customized fine upholstery increase the feeling of more available space thanks to daylight pouring in thanks to large window like ports and panelling. By night artificial lighting design takes the stage and projects its beams to highlight works of art and enriches contemporary objects and trendy accessories. In this case artificial lighting has become an integral part of the entire interior decor where warm dimming technology has become the norm to obtain the scenario according to the owner’s mood and more.
Custom line Navetta 30 develops over three decks, with approximately 320 square metres of available surface area, and offers five cabins for a total of ten berths.
The layout along the main bridge starting from the aft section closer to the stern with a 34 square metre cockpit furnished with a multi- purpose sofa designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and a coffee table as well as two armchairs. Access to the main living room area underscored by headroom exceeding two metres and by two ample cut glass full beam sliding doors also open outwards along the topsides enhancing contact with the external surroundings.
Proceeding toward the bow there’s a lobby with peculiar set of steps which wants to be, thanks to shape and lit up by artificial lighting an object worth but it merely recalls the yacht’s logo which is visible all over the yacht. The bow area is dedicated to the owner’s suite measuring 35 square metres. It contains a small private study dressing room and bathroom decorated with Microfarma mosaic work by Micromosaic. From the Ernestomeda galley along the same deck which there’s access to the lower deck there’s a row of four guest cabins, each one with dedicated bathroom, the crew’s quarters and beyond the engine room there’s a garage built to host a Williams SportJet 435 and a Ferretti Group DMT (Dual Mode Transom) jet ski. When closed the garage is waterproof while when it opens up it facilitates launch and recovery of tender and toys.
The upper 37 square metre deck hosts an external lounge with an “al fresco” arrangement from which to wine and dine and another Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel custom built sofa. The section is interconnected with a 23 square metre internal sky lounge offering a panoramic view. A grand Sun Set Lounge measuring all of 32 square metres is furnished with free standing furniture and accessories by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. A spiral shaped staircase leads up to the 35 square metre Sundeck which has been divided in two separate lounges. one faces the sea and comprises a bar and the other is also customized by the Milan based studio. Furthermore a Bimini top or sun awning as well can be installed in a matter of minutes when needed.
The hull by Ferretti Engineering Group made full use of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to pin point best solutions. When driven by two MAN i6 engines with an output of 800 HP each it is already a good performer but these can be substituted to have MAN and CAT 1,000 Hp engines on request as well two 1,150 1,200 HP engines, also for a homogeneous plug in hybrid system and the possibility of deploying Seakeeper stabilizer “Zero Speed” fins.
The bridge deck with the helm controls station is equipped with LOOP Naviop-Simrod system equipped with six monitor touch screens measuring 24” or 16”on each side of the winglets in proximity of the helm controls station.
