The Ferretti group has announced the launch of their latest addition to the Custom Line series, the very first 108. The yacht was launched at the group’s facility in La Spezia a few days ago. The yard reports that construction of three more hulls of the model is currently under construction.
The yard will spend the next few days completing the interior outfitting of the yacht, and engineering systems will also be tested during her first few days in the water. Following these tests, the yacht will be delivered to her owner during a private ceremony, after which she will head to the French Riviera to enjoy the summer cruising season. “The creation of the first Custom Line 108’ has spread great enthusiasm across the shipyard, which has worked very hard over the last few months to successfully get to the launch of this new maxi yacht,” commented Ferretti Group’s Chief Commercial Officer, Stefano de Vivo.
The new Custom Line 108 is a combination of sporty performance with spacious guest areas and ultra modern onboard technology systems. Great attention to detail was paid to create the ultimate custom interior, tailor-made to the owner’s requirements. Soft leathers, fine woods and precious materials like marble have been used to decorate the interior in true Italian style.
Hull number one has been fitted with two MTU 16V 2000 engines, delivering a top speed of 26 knots and allowing her to cruise at 23 knots. At 12 knots she will reach 1000nm.
The yacht will head to Cannes where she will just be in time for the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
