The new flagship for Custom Line lowered into the water at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard yesterday. She’s the sporty-looking, trideck Custom Line 140.
Like previous builds from Custom Line, the 140-foot (42.61-meter) megayacht began as an internal project, between the Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and its Engineering Department. Styling, meanwhile, is from Francesco Paszkowski Design, the third time the studio is collaborating with Custom Line. Cutouts in the bulwarks on the main and upper decks accentuate the view from leisure areas inside. They also draw more attention to the large swaths of glass along her profile. Overall, the Paszkowski design studio took inspiration from residential architecture and added design elements all her own. In fact, if you look closely at the aluminum handrail within one of the bulwark cutouts, you’ll see Y-shape supports.
With a gross tonnage just shy of 400, the Custom Line 140 further has a beam of 28 feet (8.54 meters). The combination of the two lends itself well to semi-custom interiors that create a home on the water. Francesco Paszkowski Design and Margherita Casprini, along with the Custom Line Atelier, fashioned the various rooms. The master suite, for instance, is a serene oasis on the main deck, while four guest staterooms sit below decks. During the daytime, guests can gather in the dedicated beach club. Alternatively, they can board the PWCs and tenders that stow in their own dedicated garages, too.
Although the shipyard isn’t disclosing full details about the interior design, you can see for yourself when the Custom Line 140 premieres at the fall yacht shows. In the meantime, the yard anticipates sea trials confirming a sporty top speed complementary of her overall looks. Specifically, the megayacht should max out at 21½ knots
