Launched in Ancona last week was Custom Line’s first ever superyacht over 300 GT, making the new Navetta 42, named Varo, the largest yacht ever to be completed by the Ferretti Group’s semi-production ocean going superyacht division.Photo: Custom Line SpA
Building on the success of the five Navetta 37 and four Navetta 33 units that have been launched before her, Varo will soon be joined by at least another three of her kind; all of which are in various stages of construction in Ancona.
On launch day last week, her Italian owner commented: “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.”
The Navetta 42 is the result of Piero Ferrari’s Product Strategy Committee and Group Engineering Department working successfully together with Zuccon International Project for over two years on the project to achieve a sophisticated and highly seaworthy product that can be customised by clients inside and out for a true superyacht experience at sea.
Expect to see the Navetta 42 on display during this year’s Cannes and Monaco boat shows in September.
