Ferretti Group has announced development of its new Custom Line flagship, the Navetta 50. The new model will make its debut in the aluminum yacht segment under 500 gross tons and introduces some highly appealing features: an upper deck master suite, interconnection between interiors and exteriors, glazed surfaces, and a refined and sophisticated interior design by ACPV Architects’ Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. The new Navetta 50 joins the brand’s displacement line.
Many owners seek the Navetta style because it expresses the unique features of a cruising yacht with an emphasis on style, comfort and wellbeing on board. With a length overall of 49.9 meters (164 feet) and a beam of 9.6 meters (31 ½ feet), the Custom Line 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. The 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, complete with sunset solarium.
This interconnection between interiors and exteriors is the other distinctive feature of the Custom Line Navetta 50. Replicated in all the guest areas and particularly the lounges on the main and upper decks, it is obtained by using large floor-to-ceiling windows and reflective surfaces that give the sensation of being on an island surrounded by water.
The Custom Line Navetta 50 project is the result of collaboration between the Strategic Product Department led by 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. He imbued 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.
The interior design is based on a concept focused on sophisticated detailing and the use of fine, sustainable materials, including natural leathers, used both in the finishes and in the sophisticated detailing of the custom designed furnishings activated by the yard’s skilled craftsmen.
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 are best described as terraces overlooking the water to enjoy at any time of day. The beach club 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 by the rectangular pool in the stern and the result is an incredibly atmospheric effect.
The open-air spaces continue with the large bow area, which can be customized according to the owner’s wishes A spectacular sun deck, on which the outdoor area in the bow can be used as a lounge and for refreshments, is joined by over 70 square meters (754 square feet) of interior space reserved for the dining area and American bar. The bow area on the sun deck can also be customized with a Jacuzzi and solarium from which to enjoy a sweeping view.
As well as the master suite, the Navetta 50 offers the owner and guests four guest cabins on the lower deck, accommodating a total of 10 people on board and nine crew, including the captain.
On the sustainability front, the use of aluminum rather than steel, which weighs three times as much, cuts consumption by about 10 to 15 percent on a 50-metre boat of the same size and volume. The best efficiency is obtained at low rpm and the cruising speed for which the vessel is designed, with an increase in range measured in nautical miles estimated at 10 to 15 percent.
Custom Line Navetta 33 Hull No. 1 will also be SCR ready (Selective Catalytic Reduction). At shipyard level, the Superyacht Yard in Ancona has a trigeneration plant producing electric, heat and cooling power, which reduces the consumption of electricity by up to 79 percent and heat energy by 32 percent, with annual primary energy savings of 20 percent, the company says.
Available finishes include Alpi Lignum walnut paneling, a living, certified and eco-sustainable material that complies with the strictest international standards because the ZeroF version is produced with no added formaldehyde; mixers from the Hansgrohe Axor Citterio line designed by Antonio Citterio, with a flow rate of 5 liters per minute instead of 12, which provides the same comfort thanks to the Airpower Technology; Foglizzo natural hides and leathers, which employ 100 percent recycled materials.
Construction on the Custom Line Navetta 50 will start at the end of the year and the yacht will be ready for presentation in 2024.
