The New Custom Line Flagship, the first Navetta 42 has been launched.

12 June 2018


The Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona celebrated the launch of the brand’s first super yacht over 300 GT.

The design was done Product Strategy Committee led by Piero Ferrari, the Group Engineering Department and Studio Zuccon International. Navetta 42 was result of a design process that has kept them busy for more than two years.

Both the interiors and exteriors of the new Navetta 42 can be extensively customised. The layout optimises the way the generous spaces are used, adopting an innovative and attentive approach to the organisation of the interiors and particularly the outdoor settings, which exploit the four decks to the full to offer the utmost privacy and comfort at sea. A huge suite on the main deck is reserved for the owner, while the layout on the lower deck features four VIP suites. The captain has a spacious living area forward on the upper deck, with a private cabin and direct access to the main helm station.


All the interiors of the first Navetta 42 unit have been customised according to both the owner’s desires and the perfectly tailor-made style embodied by Custom Line, which is expressed at its very highest bespoke level in the Navetta line.

“Navetta 42 is a wonderful dream come true: a maxi yacht built with the care of a tailor-made suit. It wasn’t easy in a boat this size to combine function with aesthetic form, using every possible space available, but the end result is fantastic. I want to thank the architect and the whole Custom Line team for having successfully translated my desires into style and beauty.

Navetta 42 is a unique work of yacht building artistry, one that I feel is truly my own”, commented the ship’s Italian owner.

Navetta 42 confirms once again that the launch of a Custom Line unit is a magical moment, one that in this particular case follows closely on the heels of the fifth Navetta 37 unit and the fourth Navetta 33. Three more Navetta 42 units are already under construction.

The backdrop for all these recent success stories is the Superyacht Yard in Ancona, the Ferretti Group shipyard that is now rightfully held up as a centre of European excellence.

Navetta 42 will be given its official debut in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival and the Monaco Yacht Show.
