The Ferretti Group is kno­wn for its com­mit­ment to in­no­va­tion and qua­li­ty, and its Cu­stom Li­ne has been on the cut­ting ed­ge sin­ce 1996. The la­te­st in the pla­ning se­ries, the Cu­stom Li­ne 120’ pro­ject, dra­ws in­spi­ra­tion from the tech­no­lo­gi­cal and sty­li­stic con­nec­tion bet­ween Off­sho­re craft, car de­si­gn, ele­gant re­si­den­tial ar­chi­tec­tu­re and the ae­ro­nau­ti­cal in­du­stry.

The fir­st Cu­stom Li­ne crea­ted by the Fran­ce­sco Pasz­ko­w­ski De­si­gn stu­dio, it fea­tu­res a sleek, stream­li­ned pro­fi­le wi­th a stri­king com­bi­na­tion of co­lours and ma­te­rials in the light sur­fa­ces of the struc­tu­re and the dark win­do­ws. The taut li­nes run from bow to stern. The hull bot­tom is de­fi­ned by a bow ex­ten­sion to re­du­ce drag and cut fuel con­sump­tion. The hull de­si­gn drew in­spi­ra­tion from ra­cing ya­ch­ts to com­bi­ne light­ness and ro­bust­ness. The full-leng­th win­do­ws on the main deck re­sult in bright in­te­riors and a clo­se con­tact wi­th the sea, whi­le the si­de win­do­ws on the fly­brid­ge shel­ter the sun deck.

The in­te­riors are in­fluen­ced by the ow­ner’s sty­li­stic choi­ces, and the so­lu­tions of­fe­red by the Pasz­ko­w­ski stu­dio crea­ting the ef­fect of a re­gal con­tem­po­ra­ry vil­la. The glass door pro­vi­ding ac­cess to the loun­ge is in­cli­ned at 45° and the clas­sic sli­ding me­cha­ni­sm is com­ple­men­ted by a til­ting sy­stem that ena­bles the door to be in­te­gra­ted in­to the cei­ling, crea­ting an 80 squa­re me­tre ope­ning bet­ween coc­k­pit and loun­ge. Lar­ge cur­tains can be used as par­ti­tions and teak floors pro­vi­de a stri­king bac­k­drop to the ove­rall sche­me. The loun­ge floor is rai­sed wi­th float-

ing sec­tions to en­han­ce the view of the sea, the si­de win­do­ws crea­te the at­mo­sphe­re whi­le the sup­port co­lumns in­cor­po­ra­te lighting, au­dio and air con­di­tio­ning sy­stems. The lob­by pro­vi­des ac­cess to the ex­te­rior wal­k­way lea­ding to the ow­ner’s sui­te or be­low decks, whi­le the­re is ac­cess on the op­po­si­te si­de to the pan­try and from the­re to the gal­ley and the crew quar­ters for­ward wi­th di­net­te, cap­tain’s ca­bin wi­th pri­va­te ba­th­room, ho­stess ca­bin and two twin ca­bins wi­th pri­va­te ba­th. The ow­ner’s sui­te oc­cu­pies 35 squa­re me­tres and fea­tu­res a dressing room and full­beam ba­th­room wi­th twin fa­ci­li­ties, vanity and cen­tral sho­wer. A pa­no­ra­mic ter­ra­ce can be in­clu­ded on re­que­st.

The two VIP ca­bins are on the lo­wer deck aft. He­re, the beds fa­ce the bul­warks, an ar­ran­ge­ment that, thanks to the hull win­do­ws, crea­tes a spec­ta­cu­lar view. The other two gue­st ca­bins are lo­ca­ted for­ward and ea­ch fea­tu­res a ba­th­room wi­th all com­forts. The­re are al­so con­nec­tions in the ex­te­rior areas, ju­st as an­cient hou­ses of­ten had se­cret pas­sa­ges. The­se al­low the spa­ces to en­joy a usea­ble area of 100 squa­re me­tres. The fly­brid­ge is lin­ked to the bow area by si­de cor­ri­dors, and the­re is al­so ac­cess from the fly­brid­ge.

The di­net­te, si­tua­ted in the ex­tre­me bow, pro­vi­des ac­cess to two sun­pads flan­king the wal­k­way. The pa­no­ra­mic deck is de­si­gned to pro­vi­de to­tal pri­va­cy. The re­la­xa­tion area has a hy­dro­mas­sa­ge pool, and when ne­ces­sa­ry a re-

trac­ta­ble bi­mi­ni in the hard top wi­th sky­light will pro­vi­de sha­de for tho­se en­joy­ing this part of the ya­cht. Clean li­nes un­der way are crea­ted by a pa­ten­ted Dual Mo­de Tran­som sy­stem, wi­th two hat­ches hi­ding the stairs to the coc­k­pit when the ya­cht is crui­sing. When the craft is at re­st the stairs run th­rou­gh the ga­ra­ge door, whe­re a 5.65 ten­der and th­ree-sea­ter jet ski are sto­wed.

In li­ne wi­th the Cu­stom Li­ne 120’s pre­sti­gious na­tu­re, its pro­pul­sion and acou­stic com­fort are of an ex­tre­me­ly hi­gh stan­dard – the twin 2638 Mhp 16 V MTU 2000 M96L en­gi­nes pro­vi­de a nor­mal crui­sing speed of 21 kno­ts and an eco­no­mi­cal crui­sing speed of 11 kno­ts, wi­th a ran­ge of 1,100 nau­ti­cal mi­les.
