Cannes - Festival International de la Plaisance
Wednesday, September 12, 2007
FERRETTI CUSTOM LINE, the Italian yard that forms part of the Ferretti Group and produces maxi yachts in composite materials with planing or semi-displacement hulls, presents a world preview at Cannes of its Navetta 26, the new front-runner of the fleet’s semi-displacement series.
The design has been personally monitored by Norberto Ferretti and developed by a well- established collaboration between the Ferretti Group’s Engineering division and the Studio Zuccon International Project, with the aim of transforming a new dimension of on board well- being into reality. From the wide sweep of the windows to the to the choice between two lower deck layouts, every detail has been designed in response to new preferences expressed by the most expert owners in search of silence, light and comfort.
Navetta 26 is conceived to reposition the concept of the compact semi-displacement yacht, to become the new reference point a field enjoying a period of growth on international markets.
With the opportunity to personalise interiors, FERRETTI CUSTOM LINE allows owners to transform their desires into reality alongside one of the yard’s architects during the construction phase. The extensive personalisation options offered for this dream yacht allows modification of all elements and components that are not strictly structural, from the décor and furnishings, creating a semi-custom product that is unique in its class.
FERRETTI CUSTOM LINE excellence is also reflected by the on board technology. The entire fleet is equipped with Mitsubishi ARG (Anti Rolling Gyro) stabilisers, and accessories that conform to the MCA Short Range category, the latest safety regulations laid down by the Maritime Costguard Agency and expressly intended for maxiyachts of 24 to 38 metres in length, with the aim of raising safety standards and enabling their use for charter.
A second model from the fleet will be presented at Cannes, the Ferretti Custom Line 97’, which belongs to the yard’s planing yacht series. With innovative design solutions intended to increase the amount of space available for the owner and guests, the Ferretti Custom Line 97’ offers highly prestigious equipment and accessories. The layout means the crew will not disturb on board life. Access to their quarters is amidships, in fact, while the owner’s suite is in the bows.
With wide windows on both sides and a chaise-longue to starboard, the owner’s cabin offers a relaxed sea view. The solutions chosen also make it an ideal yacht for charter cruises.
