Custom Line evolved as part of a Ferretti project designed to broaden the company’s range of 30 meter boats. The boat’s design was assigned to Studio Zuccon International Project, which had been working with the Ferretti group for some years.
The Anti Rolling Gyro (ARG) system, patented by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, was tested for the first time on a Custom Line yacht, the Navetta 30. The exclusive rights for this system, which reduces wave-induced rolling by 50%, have been granted to the Ferretti group until 2011.
Custom Line produces two planing yachts, the Custom Line 97' and the Custom Line 112' Next (which evolved from the Custom Line 112'), and two semi-displacement crafts, the Navetta 26 and the Navetta 33.
Custom Line 97'
This maxi yacht, which is built at the Fano site, is produced by Ferretti AYT in conjunction with Zuccon International Project. The Custom Line 97’ is a planing yacht built from composite material; 29.70 meters long (roughly 97 feet, hence the name) and 7.08 meters wide, this yacht can carry up to 20 people including crew and has two different versions with either 4 or 5 passenger cabins (not including crew accommodation).
The Custom Line 97' made its first appearance at the Genoa International Boat Show in 2006.
The Custom Line 97' was certified by RINA to RINA 100-A-1.1 "Y" standards.
Approximately 26 meters long (hence the name), this semi-displacement yacht is built in composite material and can carry up to 20 people; the Navetta 26 has two alternative internal layouts with either 4 or 5 passenger cabins (crew accommodation excluded). The boat also has two different motor capacities with either 900 or 1100 hp, offering a top speed of 14 and 16 knots (30 km/h) respectively.
The Navetta 26 was awarded the 2008 MYDA (Millennium Yacht Design Award) in the class for motor boats over 24 meters, an award presented by Seatec (the International Exhibition for technology, subcontracting and design for boats, yachts and ships, which is held annually at the Carrara Boat fair) «for the designs and designers of pleasure craft of particular interest as regards innovation, external layout, internal architecture, and innovation in building technologies».
The Custom Line Navetta 26 was classified by the RINA, at B + F + Aa standard.
Custom Line 112' Next
The Custom Line 112’ Next, which was first launched at Cannes in September 2008, is the direct successor to the Ferretti Custom Line 112’. This 34 meters (roughly 112 feet, hence the name) planing yacht, which is produced at the Ancona shipyard, is over 7 meters wide. The hull and superstructure are built in multi-axis fibreglass, a composite material that offers advantages at equal weight, both as regards resistance and rigidity.
The Navetta 33, which had its world premiere at the Festival International de la Plaisance in Cannes in September 2008, is the top model in the line of semi-displacement yachts of composite material produced by Custom Line. Approximately 33 meters long and 7 wide, this yacht has been designed with two alternative versions for the main deck and can carry 20 people, crew included. The top speed of 18 knots (33 km/h) and cruising speed of about 16 knots (30 km/h) are achieved thanks to two V12 1000 kW motors at 2300 revs per minute; the 15 thousand [litre] tank gives an estimated range of 850 nautical miles at a speed of 13 knots (24 km/h).
