The biggest Navetta megayacht to date from Custom Line is floating on her lines today. The 138-foot (42-meter) Navetta 42 extends the Italian yard’s series of semi-displacement, long-range motoryachts. She also extends its yacht volumes into the 300-gross-ton realm.
As with the smaller sisters, ranging from the Navetta 28 to the Navetta 37, all design comes from two teams. The first is Zuccon International Project, which has designed dozens of yachts for Custom Line’s parent company, the Ferretti Group. The second is the Ferretti Group’s own engineering department and Product Strategy Committee. Piero Ferrari, part owner of the famed Ferrari car company, heads the Product Strategy Committee.
The owner of this first Navetta 42, from Italy, calls her “a maxi yacht built with the care of a tailor-made suit.” He definitely tailored the interior. Custom Line is not yet disclosing the decor materials found throughout. However, the owner had four decks to design as he chose.
Those decks include a main-deck master suite, of course. Family and friends get four staterooms below, all VIP suites. (On a related side note, the standard Navetta 42 layout puts five guest cabins below decks.) Wisely, this Navetta 42 situates the captain’s cabin on the same deck as the wheelhouse. In fact, it has direct access to the wheelhouse. As you would expect, the megayacht has a beach club, as well as a tender garage. The tender garage features the proprietary launch and retrieval system that the Ferretti Group’s engineering department developed a few years ago.
You’ll get a chance to see this Navetta 42 at the fall boat shows. She will appear at both the Cannes Yachting Festival as well as the Monaco Yacht Show.
While finishing work continues on her, Custom Line is also completing three more Navetta 42s. Furthermore, it’s close to delivering the fifth Navetta 37, plus the fourth Navetta 33.
