The new flagship yacht from Custom Line, the Navetta 50, has set sail as the latest introduction to the brand’s lineup of displacement yachts.
The 50-metre aluminium wonder is the perfect embodiment of the elegance, comfort and well-being that yacht enthusiasts crave.
In this article, we’ll provide you with a detailed overview of the Custom Line Navetta 50, along with some of the appealing features that make it stand out from other yachts.
From its interior and exterior design to its sustainability initiatives, you’ll learn everything there is to know about this stunning flagship.
Stylish Design and Layout
The Custom Line Navetta 50 stretches across four decks and is designed entirely in aluminium. With a displacement hull under 500 GT, it measures 49.90 metres in length and 9.60 metres in beam. The yacht’s interior layout centres around the positioning of the master suite in the bow on the upper deck, from which all the onboard spaces are developed. The suite features floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a 180-degree view, and provides direct access to a large private terrace in the bow, complete with a sunset solarium.
This interconnection between interiors and exteriors is a distinctive feature of the Custom Line Navetta 50, which is replicated in all guest areas and particularly the lounges on the main and upper decks. Large floor-to-ceiling windows and reflective surfaces create the sensation of being on an island surrounded by water as far as the eye can see.
Collaboration With Leading Experts
The Custom Line Navetta 50 project is the result of collaboration between the Strategic Product Department led by Mr Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard Engineering Unit.
The exterior styling is once again by Filippo Salvetti, while ACPV ARCHITECTS Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel designed the interior architecture and decoration, permeating it with a sense of refinement and sophistication that points up the personality, values and heritage of the brand, including the reinterpretation of yacht building tradition from a contemporary perspective.
Luxurious Interiors And Exterior Spaces
The yacht’s interior design is focused on sophisticated detailing and the use of fine, sustainable materials, including natural leather.
An in-depth study of the yacht’s volumes was used to fine-tune liveability and deliver maximum comfort on board, providing the owner with very generous spaces normally found on much larger yachts.
The outdoor spaces running from bow to stern give each deck its own individual personality, creating what is best described as terraces overlooking the water to enjoy at any time of day.
The magnificent beach club at the water’s edge is 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 and the result is an incredibly atmospheric effect.
Incredible Sustainability Initiatives
The Custom Line Navetta 50 is built entirely in aluminium, which cuts consumption by about 10-15% on a 50-metre boat of the same size and volume (GT) compared to steel, which weighs three times as much.
The best efficiency is obtained at low rpm and the cruising speed for which the vessel is designed, with an increase in the range measured in nautical miles estimated at 10-15%. Custom Line Navetta 50 Hull#01 will also be SCR-ready (Selective Catalytic Reduction).
At the shipyard level, the Superyacht Yard in Ancona has a trigeneration plant producing electricity, heat and cooling power, which reduces the consumption of electricity by up to 79% and heat energy by 32%, with annual primary energy savings of
approximately 3,750 tons of CO2. This demonstrates how sustainable practices can be integrated into the manufacturing process of superyachts.
Moreover, superyacht manufacturers are also exploring the use of alternative and eco-friendly materials in yacht construction. For example, recycled materials such as recycled steel, aluminium, and composite fibres are being used in the production of superyachts.
Additionally, some manufacturers are exploring the use of natural materials like bamboo, flax, and hemp to reduce the carbon footprint of yacht manufacturing.
In terms of onboard sustainability, superyachts are increasingly being designed to operate using clean energy sources.
For instance, solar panels can be installed on the yacht’s deck to harness solar energy, and wind turbines can be installed to generate wind energy.
Lithium-ion batteries are used to store energy generated by these clean energy sources, which can then be used to power the yacht’s systems and equipment, reducing the need for fossil fuel-powered generators.
Other sustainable features of superyachts include water-saving technologies, such as advanced water filtration systems, to recycle and reuse greywater and blackwater, reducing the amount of wastewater discharged into the ocean. Advanced waste management systems are also being implemented to reduce the environmental impact of yacht operations.
Furthermore, superyacht manufacturers are also collaborating with marine conservation organizations to support ocean conservation efforts.
Many superyacht owners are passionate about ocean conservation and are using their yachts as a platform to support various marine conservation initiatives.
In conclusion, the superyacht industry is embracing sustainability and adopting various practices to reduce its impact on the environment.
From the use of eco-friendly materials in yacht manufacturing to clean energy and water-saving technologies onboard, the industry is taking significant steps towards reducing its environmental footprint.
