A Navetta is the dream yacht for many owners because it fully expresses the unique features of a cruising yacht that is unrivalled for style, comfort and wellbeing on board. The new Navetta 50 joins the brand’s displacement line and becomes its stunning flagship.
Designed entirely in aluminium with a displacement hull under 500 gross tonnage, a length of 49.9 metres and a beam of 9.6 metres, Custom Line Navetta 50 extends across four decks.
The layout revolves around the positioning of the master suite in the bow on the upper deck, from which all the onboard spaces develop.
The master suite is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a 180-degree view and provides direct access to a large private terrace in the bow, complete with sunset solarium.
The interconnection between interiors and exteriors is another distinctive feature of Custom Line Navetta 50.
Replicated in all guest areas and particularly the lounges on the main and upper decks, it’s obtained by using large floor-to-ceiling windows and reflective surfaces that give the sensation of being on an island surrounded by water.
The Custom Line Navetta 50 project is the result of collaboration between the Strategic Product Department led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard Engineering Unit. Exterior styling is once again by Filippo Salvetti.
Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel from ACPV ARCHITECTS designed the interior architecture and decoration, permeating it with a sense of refinement and sophistication that points at the personality, values and heritage of the brand, including the reinterpretation of yacht building tradition from a contemporary perspective.
Interior design is based on a concept focused on sophisticated detailing and the use of fine, sustainable materials, including natural leathers, used both in finishes and detailing of the custom-designed furnishings from the great skill of the yard’s craftsmen.
An in-depth study of the yacht’s volumes was used to fine tune liveability and deliver maximum comfort on board, providing the owner with generous spaces normally found on larger yachts.
Turning to the exterior design, the outdoor spaces running from bow to stern give each deck its own individual personality, creating what are best described as terraces overlooking the water.
The magnificent beach club at the water’s edge is in direct contact with the aft outdoor area on the main deck, which is fitted out as a private lounge. These two exterior spaces are integrated to perfection by the rectangular pool in the stern.
The open-air spaces continue with the large bow area, which can be customised according to the owner’s wishes, and a spectacular sun deck.
The outdoor area in the bow can be used as a lounge, joined by over 70 square metres of interior space reserved for the dining area and American bar. The bow area on the sun deck can also be customised with a jacuzzi and solarium.
As well as the master suite, Navetta 50 offers four guest cabins on the lower deck, accommodating a total of ten people and nine crew, including the captain.
On the sustainability front, the use of aluminium rather than steel, which weighs three times as much, cuts consumption by about ten to 15 percent on a 50-metre boat of the same size and volume (gt).
The best efficiency is obtained at low rpm and the cruising speed for which the vessel is designed, with an increase in range measured in nautical miles estimated at ten to 15 percent.
The first hull of the Custom Line Navetta 33 will also be SCR ready (Selective Catalytic Reduction).
At shipyard level, the Superyacht Yard in Ancona has a trigeneration plant producing electric, heat and cooling power, which reduces the consumption of electricity by up to 79 percent and heat energy by 32 percent, with annual primary energy savings of 20 percent.
The available finishes include Alpi Lignum walnut panelling, a living, certified and eco-sustainable material that complies with the strictest international standards as the ZeroF version is produced with zero added formaldehyde.
Another option is mixers from the Hansgrohe Axor Citterio line designed by Antonio Citterio, with a flow rate of five litres per minute instead of 12, which provides the same comfort thanks to the Airpower Technology.
Foglizzo is also an option, with natural hides and leathers and 100 percent recycled materials in which the entire production is based on reused leather.
Construction work on Custom Line Navetta 50 will start at the end of 2022 and the yacht will be ready for presentation in 2024.
