CUSTOM LINE NAVETTA 42
By Shereen Shabnam
Custom Line has reached a major landmark revealing a new model of boundless beauty in the form of the magnificent Custom Line Navetta 42, the shipyard’s biggest yacht ever that has maximized the liveability of the fully-customisable interiors and features a spacious beach club of nearly 30m2 at water level and an innovative semi-floodable side garage.
The fruit of a two-year collaborative effort by the Product Strategy Committee headed by Engineer Piero Ferrari, the Group’s Engineering Department and Studio Zuccon International Project, the new super-yacht epitomizes a sailing philosophy based on superior design, sophisticated elegance and extraordinary performance.
The new flagship, the brand’s first above 300 GT, combines the qualities of seaworthiness, comfort, safety and customisation – all part of Custom Line’s DNA since the beginning – into a product that is truly revolutionary in terms of style, design and spaces, and whose range places it at the top of its class.
The yacht’s colours, finishes and materials, as well as its many free-standing solutions and interior furnishings, were chosen in collaboration with Studio Luca Bombassei, a renowned Italian architecture and design firm, and are yet another testament to the endless possibilities for personalisation offered by Custom Line. The result is a true floating work of art, featuring furnishings designed by Minotti and Roda.
Throughout the four spacious decks of Navetta 37, the flagship presents a fully customisable internal layout conceived to exploit the ship’s generous volumes to the fullest and to offer maximum liveability in all areas, with impressive lengths and heights above 2m in the interior spaces.
The result is better organisation of on-board flows, total privacy for the owner and his guests, and great freedom of movement for the captain and crew. The central lobby on the main deck leads to the stairs descending to the lower deck and those leading to the upper deck, and to the lift that connects the three main decks. A spacious terrace gives the owner a perfect relaxation space overlooking the sea.
The solid profile of Custom Line Navetta 42 exudes the unmistakable elegance which characterises all Navetta models: an impeccable blend of linear and essential architectural solutions that conveys a sense of strength and character on the water.
Inside, Custom Line Navetta 42 blends exquisite chromatic harmonies with a selection of refined materials and surfaces. Walnut and dark oak are the dominant essences of the interiors, and combine seamlessly with the lacquered surfaces of the ceilings, the bronze-coloured brushed steel of the handles and handrails, and the mirror-finish steel used for the doors.
Custom Line Navetta 42 features a system of automated waterproof doors that close upon specific commands by the captain, in order to isolate the forward compartment from the aft one, thus ensuring safe navigation.
Navetta Custom Line 42 is a striking example of that “family feeling” which made the brand famous worldwide: it welcomes guests into a modern and stylishly eclectic ambiance, enriched by a contemporary vibe that reverberates in the elegant yet functional furnishings, with their inn ovative and essential design.
