The eagerly awaited Custom Line Navetta 30 is the first yacht with an interior design scheme by the prestigious Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel architecture firm and exterior design by Filippo Salvetti.
With a length of 28.4 metres and a beam of 7.3 metres, this new project is a product of the partnership between the Ferretti Group’s Strategic Product Committee, headed by engineer Piero Ferrari, and its engineering department.
“The Navetta 30 takes us into a new dimension in design,” explains Stefano de Vivo, the Ferretti Group’s Chief Commercial Officer.
He continues, “Due to the success enjoyed by the new Navetta generation, we want every new project to have the verve of a masterpiece. The Navetta 30 meets this requirement and takes a step forward in the quest to offer owners and their guests incomparable wellbeing.”
The classically poised profile of the yacht places the emphasis on the way the lines stretch out horizontally. Highlighting this aspect of the design means the vertical connections between the decks go almost unnoticed.
For the first time, the drop from the superstructure on the upper deck has been shortened near the glazed window of the owner’s cabin, giving the yacht a more streamlined shape that is even racier.
And that’s not all: one of the most striking aspects of the new yacht is the gap between the hull and the superstructure, which has been created by raising the joints with the upper deck to form two clearly separate parts.
“The Custom Line displacement range has been expanded by the addition of the new Navetta 30, which blends generous volumes with an attractive, graceful design whose classic charms never grow old. It might have the capabilities of a ship, but it is full of harmoniously balanced visual appeal,” states architect Filippo Salvetti.
Salvetti continues, “It was essential to find the right balance between the hull and the superstructure and emphasise the way the external lines stretch out horizontally in order to add a little vivacious verve to this distinctive, complex creation.”
The exterior design features large glazed windows in the hull and superstructure, with deck heights of more than two metres and very spacious areas forward and aft. With finishes and furniture that match those inside, the outdoor spaces can be used not only for dining but also for relaxing and reflecting.
The wider configuration means that owners and their guests have a full-beam owner’s suite and lounge on the main deck at their disposal, in addition to four VIP cabins and a crew area on the lower deck. There is a dining area and lounge on the upper deck, which provides access to the integrated bridge that is located further forward.
To lay the foundations for it all, a brand-new hull has been created, with lines on the bottom that extend it forward. It is designed to not only host very large spaces, but also provide superb performance while minimising consumption.
The innovative interior design scheme was developed in partnership with Citterio Viel. The project has a traditional maritime style with a contemporary twist – from the concept to the colour palette.
“The interior design was developed in partnership with the engineers and architects who designed the hull of the yacht,” states Patricia Viel, co-founder of the Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel architecture firm.
“BIM enables us to control every single volume perfectly, thus ensuring that the lighting and interior design schemes fit in flawlessly around the shape of the hull.”
The Custom Line Navetta 30 is built for travelling long distances with low fuel consumption and performance at the top of its class. It comes with twin MAN I6 800 mhp engines as standard, giving it a top speed of 14 knots and a transatlantic range of approximately 1,000 nautical miles at a fuel-efficient cruising speed of 10 knots.
