Custom Line's 37-metre flagship has been one of the stars of the September boat shows
As the yard celebrates its 20th birthday, it’s the brand-new Custom Line Navetta 37 that has been taking all the plaudits, after the semi-displacement composite 37-metre made her debut at the Cannes and Monaco shows. Exterior styling is by Studio Zuccon International Project, while the hull and superstructure have plenty of windows that serve to open up the interior spaces. Guests also benefit from some extensive relaxing areas on deck.
The sundeck is a wonderfully private space, with the striking hardtop offering some shade, though the key to the deck is the number of choices that guests have: there are sociable seating areas, sunpads, a Jacuzzi and a cocktail area.
On the upper deck, the lounge is separated from the exterior by a three-piece glass door; with this open, guests benefit from a wonderful indoor/outdoor space. Outside, there’s a dining area for ten.
Perhaps the best spot for guests is the private lounge forward, with a big sofa, two tables, and a large sunpad with a raised section over the tables that can be used as a headrest or chair. A carbon-fibre structure can be erected to shade and shelter the area. The sunpad hides a tender garage.
The yacht’s interior is also by Zuccon, in collaboration with the craftsmen at the Ferretti Group. Key material thoughout are dark brushed matt walnut furniture, oak parquet flooring, and contrasting leather and lacquer sections. The furnishings in the lounges are made by Molteni and Poltrona Frau. A series of recessed LED lights illuminate the main guest areas in an arrangement created by Viabizzuno. Forward on the main deck, the master boasts a bed on the centreline and a dedicated office. There are four guest suites below – three with doubles and one with a twin.
There a five engine options, with twin 1.050kW (1,400hp) MAN V12s as the standard configuration. This offers a top speed of 15 knots and a comfortable cruise at 12. The Ferretti Group put a lot of work into noise suppression and stability aboard the yacht.
