Custom Line Navetta 33 “Telli” wins international yacht world ‘Oscar’
Monday, May 21, 2018
The new Custom Line yacht, already a multiple-award winner, has triumphed in the “Best Three-Deck Semi-Displacement Yacht” category at the prestigious World Superyacht Awards 2018.
The list of awards won by Custom Line Navetta 33 is now as infinitely long as the yacht is beautiful. After receiving the accolade as “Best Interior Design: Motor Yachts below 399GT” at the Boat International Design & Innovation Awards in January, it has now won a new international award as “Best Three-Deck Semi-Displacement Yacht”.
This is a cause of great satisfaction, because the World Superyacht Awards are some of the most highly coveted in the international yacht world, celebrating a creative and innovative approach to both technology and design. The prestigious award, assigned by a panel of experts made up mostly of owners of important yachts and leading yacht world personalities, confirms that Custom Line Navetta 33 is a product of unparalleled excellence.
The award ceremony, held last May 19 against the fabulous backdrop of the fifteenth century Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, assigned the prize to “Telli”, voted winner not only for its superstar appeal, but also for its peerless harmony of styles, shapes and sources of inspiration. A joint effort by the Product Strategy Committee led by Group Engineering Director Piero Ferrari, whose naval architects and designers created the interiors, and Studio Zuccon International Project, which designed the exteriors, this consummate work of yacht building artistry introduces some important technical novelties that join the innovative features already appreciated on previous Custom Line models.
“I have to confess that despite being an owner for many years, I fell in love with Navetta 33 at first sight. It’s by far the most chic yacht I’ve ever sailed on, as well as the most enjoyable. It is therefore with great pleasure that I pay tribute not only to the yacht’s remarkable commercial success, with no less than nine units sold in only ten months since the launch, but also the huge appreciation shown by the most highly-regarded and best-qualified judging panels in the business. This success springs from the excellence brought to bear across the board, from the design team to the shipyard, which worked without respite to build this masterpiece.” said Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “To paraphrase Agatha Christie, one award is an award, two awards are a coincidence, but three awards are proof, they are history. The secret of Navetta 33 is as simple as it is inscrutable: this is a boat that doesn’t flaunt its luxury, but chooses instead to express true refinement.”
