Ferretti Group reveals new Custom Line Navetta 38
Italy’s Ferretti Group has revealed its new Custom Line Navetta 38, the latest yacht in the brand’s displacement line.
The first unit is under construction at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona, with delivery planned for 2024.
With a new exterior and interior design and new standards of cruising pleasure, this yacht — 38.76m long with an 8m beam and a displacement hull under 300 GT – is a collaboration between the Strategic Product Department led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
Custom Line Atelier played a strategic role in the design process, working in close contact with the customer to understand and interpret the owner’s desired style.
The new Custom Line Navetta 38 has exterior styling by the brand’s long-time collaborator architect Filippo Salvetti and interior design by ACPV Architects’ Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel.
“The birth of a new Navetta always exceeds expectations,” says Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “We achieve this goal by drawing on talented designers who create magnificent new balances between form and function. The result is unprecedented elegance, spatial fluidity and absolute comfort.
“In the case of Custom Line Navetta 38, this added value comes from architect Filippo Salvetti and ACPV Architects’ Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. Their ideas and diligent work make it possible to experience the sea with absolute intensity, surrounded by style and beauty. Time spent on board the Custom Line Navetta 38, when cruising or at anchor, is a harmonious and pleasurable experience without equal.”
This superyacht was designed to maximise the usage of all available space on the four decks, with a large master suite of over 40 sq m and completely separated crew and guest flows to ensure maximum privacy.
The stern area onboard the Custom Line Navetta 38 offers a new take on the full-beam beach deck concept. The beach club and main deck cockpit, together covering over 70 sq m, are totally open and furnished with a system of freestanding modular units, creating a more extensive, generous and multi-functional area at the water’s edge that embodies the flush deck concept.
With a total surface area of 70 square metres and 15 metres in length, the extended sun deck comes with a sea-view jacuzzi aft with sun cushions, a sun lounge area forward and an open-air dining area under the shelter of a painted hard top.
The interior design process focused on the maximum use of space through the entire available surface area. Another strong focus is on natural light, with extensive full-height windows creating a feeling of harmony with the marine environment.
The interior design is developed around fine materials with natural textures, including various types of leather, linen and parchment, chosen both for the finishings and the upholstery and coverings.
The furnishings are custom-designed and made to measure from natural leather and wood using sophisticated handcrafting techniques.
The firm of architects has created exclusive decor solutions based on two different moods: the more contemporary “cold mood” that plays with the cool hues of sky and navy blue, and the more classic and timeless “warm mood”, which features a warmer and cosier palette.
Underscoring the possibility for owners to customise the yacht’s interiors, one of the brand’s signature features, the first Custom Line Navetta 38 will have a more neutral mood with natural, muted and neutral colours such as beige and ivory.
In addition to the master suite, Custom Line Navetta 38 has four guest cabins on the lower deck, accommodating a total of 10 people on board and 7 crew members, including the captain.
The standard engines are 2 MAN units rated 1,400 hp. They drive the yacht to a top speed of 15 knots, with a range of about 2,800 nautical miles at an economy cruising speed of 10 knots (courtesy of preliminary data). The design is also SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) ready, and installing the system brings a 70 per cent reduction in NOx emissions (IMO3 compatible).
Custom Line Navetta 38 features mega yacht technology of the very highest quality, involving integrating new components and systems on board, including Fratelli Canalicchio standard hydraulics, Najad stabilizer fins and Heinen & Hopman air conditioning systems.
“Custom Line Navetta 38’s design revolves around timeless classicism, a hallmark of the Custom Line range, shaped by a balanced and harmonious language of style,” says architect Filippo Salvetti. “This yacht is the perfect blend of yachting prowess and elegance.”
Architect Patricia Viel adds: “Custom Line Navetta 38 is part of the new Custom Line displacement family and, together with the Custom Line Navetta 30 and the Custom Line Navetta 50, is designed as one of a collection of products that grow in perfection apace with their constituent parts.”
