The Navetta 42 is Custom Line’s largest – and most feature-packed – motor yacht yet.

Bigger doesn’t always mean better. This is something that the Italian builder Custom Line understood well as it set out to create its new flagship, the 41.8-metre (137 feet) Navetta 42, named Four Flowers III. When crafting its largest yacht yet – its first with a volume above 300 gross tonnage (GT) – the goal wasn’t merely to grow in size, but to offer more comfort and amenities than ever seen before. An elevator, balconies and floodable tender garage, to name a few, along with enhanced sound insulation and ultra-comfortable seakeeping define the new yacht.

Custom Line, a brand of the Ferretti Group, began working on the prototype of what would be its new flagship. The project was dreamed up by the Product Strategy Committee – headed by Piero Ferrari, himself a Custom Line owner – along with Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department and Zuccon International Project, who created the sleek yet timeless exteriors.
