Custom Line's new 36.6-metre 120 features exterior styling by Francesco Paszkowski Design.
The Custom Line 120, unveiled at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last month, is in build at the company’s yard in La Spezia and will debut next summer. She is the first planing yacht designed for Custom Line by Paszkowski, in collaboration with the Ferretti Group strategic product committee and engineering department. “The whole design was focused on enhancing the contact with the sea and attempting to overthrow boundaries between exterior and interior,” says Francesco Paszkowski.
Sporting strong and aggressive lines, the yacht’s profile is dominated by the streaks of dark-tinted windows, while the hardtop in metallic dark grey adds to the dynamic vibe. “The hull features one long window on the main and lower decks, resulting in a sleeker line, while the choice of no gunwales, wider windows and the full-beam master increases comfort on board through a closer contact with the sea,” says Francesco Paszkowski.
A key guest space outside is the upper deck, with a panoramic bridge protected by side windows and a hardtop with skylight above the cocktail area. There’s also a retractable bimini and a hot-tub. At the stern, the Ferretti Group’s dual-mode transom makes for a flexible space with a big aft terrace on the main deck, while there is a further area on the foredeck with sunpads and a dinette.
There’s room for ten guests in a main-deck master and four lower-deck suites (two doubles and two twins with pullmans). Interior styling is by Margherita Casprini. Twin MTU 16V 2000 M94s deliver a 25-knot top speed at a comfortable cruise of 22. At 11 knots, projections suggest the 120 will have a range of 1,050 nautical miles.
