It will become the flagship yacht of the brand when it debuts in the aluminum yacht segment under the 500 GT …
The new Navetta 50 joins custom line The line offsets brands and becomes the new flagship. The vessel is built entirely of aluminum, with a hull displacement of less than 500 tons, a LOA of 49.90 meters and a beam of 9.60 meters.
The ship offers some attractive features: a master suite on the upper deck, the interconnection of interiors and exteriors, glass surfaces, and a refined architectural interior by ACPV Architects Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel.
The Custom Line Navetta 50 spans over four decks in a layout that revolves around the position of the master wing in the arch on the upper deck, where all on-board spaces evolve.
The master suite is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a 180-degree view and provide direct access to a large private balcony at the bow of the ship, complete with a solarium at sunset.
The connection between the exterior and the interior is replicated in all guest areas and especially the lounges on the main and upper floors, and is achieved by using large floor-to-ceiling windows and reflective surfaces.
The Custom Line Navetta 50 project is the result of a collaboration between the Strategic Products Division led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard Engineering unit.
The exterior design was designed by Filippo Salvetti, while the architecture and interiors were designed by ACPV Architects Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel, which aims to reinterpret the idea of traditional yacht building from a contemporary perspective.
The interior design is based on a concept focused on detail and the use of subtle and sustainable materials, including natural leather, used in both the finishes and in the details of the bespoke furnishings, resulting from the skill of the artisans in the courtyard.
An in-depth study of the yacht’s volumes has been used to fine-tune the standard of living and provide maximum comfort on board, providing the owner with ample spaces normally found on larger yachts. Turning to the exterior, the exterior spaces extending from bow to stern give each deck its individual character, creating what are best described as ‘balconies’ overlooking the water.
The beach club at the water’s edge is in direct contact with the rear outdoor area on the main deck, which is equipped as a private lounge. These two external spaces are integrated by the rectangular pool at the rear.
Open spaces continue with the large arch area, which can be customized according to the wishes of the owner. There is also a sun deck that can be used as a salon with over 70 square meters of interior space dedicated to the dining area and the American bar.
The arch area on the sun deck can also be allocated with a Jacuzzi and a solarium. In addition to 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 members, including the captain.
On the sustainability front, using aluminum instead of steel, which weighs three times more, reduces consumption by about 10-15% on a 50-meter boat of the same size and girth (GT). Builders argue that improved design and manufacturing are two more efficient ways to achieve sustainability than to implement a hybrid propulsion system.
The best efficiency is obtained at low rpm and the cruising speed for which the vessel is designed, with the measured range in nautical miles increased by 10-15%. The Custom Line Navetta 33 Hull #1 will also be ready for SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction).
From a shipyard perspective, the Ancona superyacht yard contains a triple-generation plant that produces electrical, thermal and cooling energy, reducing electricity consumption by up to 79% and thermal energy by 32%, with an annual primary energy saving of 20%.
Available finishes include Alpi Lignum walnut boards, a living, certified and environmentally sustainable material that complies with the most stringent international standards – the ZeroF version is produced without the addition of formaldehyde.
Construction will begin on the Custom Line Navetta 50 at the end of the year and the yacht will be ready for show in 2024.
