Custom Line’s new Navetta 50 delivers a soothing design persona that blurs the lines between interiors and exteriors like never before.
Designed for owners looking for the functionality and elegance of a cruising yacht, in part thanks to exterior styling by Filippo Salvetti and interiors by Milan’s ACPV Architects’ Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel, the new Custom Line Navetta 50 is a significant addition to the brand’s displacement line.
Designed entirely in weight-saving aluminium, with a length of 49.90 metres and a beam of 9.60 metres, the Navetta 50 extends across four decks in a layout that revolves around the positioning of the master suite in the bow on the upper deck, from which all the onboard spaces develop.
That magnificent master suite is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a 180-degree view and provides direct access to a large private terrace in the bow.
This interconnection between interiors and exteriors – a distinctive feature of the new model – continues in all guest areas, particularly the lounges on the main and upper decks, where large floor-to-ceiling windows and reflective surfaces give the sensation of being on an island surrounded by water.
The master suite joins four guest cabins on the lower deck, allowing for 10 guests on board and nine members of crew, including the captain. Developed through a collaboration between the Strategic Product Department led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard Engineering Unit, which undertook an in-depth study of the yacht’s volumes to fine tune liveability and deliver maximum comfort, the yacht boasts a sense of contemporary refinement.
The interior design features sophisticated detailing and the use of fine, sustainable materials, including natural leathers, that are complemented by custom designed furnishings. Available finishes include Alpi Lignum walnut panelling, a living, certified and eco-sustainable material that complies with the strictest international standards; and Foglizzo natural hides and leathers.
Externally, each deck has been given its own individual personality, creating a series of undulating terraces overlooking the water that in turn lead to a magnificent beach club at the water’s edge that’s in direct contact with the aft outdoor area on the main deck, which is fitted out as a private lounge.
These two exterior spaces are integrated to perfection by the rectangular pool in the stern. The employment of open-air spaces continues with the large bow area, which can be customised with a jacuzzi and solarium, and a spectacular sun deck.
The Navetta 50, which will be ready for presentation in 2024, offers a consumption reduction of approximately 10-15% on a 50-metre boat of the same size and volume, with the best efficiency obtained at the low rpm cruising speed for which the vessel has been designed.
