The gallery of nautical works of art by Custom Line is enriched with another masterpiece, a new planing yacht designed to intensively enjoy the experience and wonder of the sea. It boasts many factors of excellence and distinction, first and foremost its unmistakable design and expert organization of the large volumes and spaces, all for the benefit of yachting comfort and life onboard. With its 32.82 meters (107’ 8”) in length and 7.30 meters (23’ 11”) in width, the Custom Line 106’ is a product of the partnership between the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio, the Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department, and the Product Strategy Committee led by the engineer Piero Ferrari. The design of the lines on the bottom and the hull helps it to replicate and build on the outstanding hydrodynamic performance of the brand’s updated planing range. The profile is sleek and powerful: taut lines run from the stern to the forward area, generating a spectacular alternation of materials and colors in the light structural surfaces and dark tinted windows. As found in a sculpture, the surfaces are interconnected and create fluid volumes in every area of the yacht. The light multiplies the space and magnifies yachting pleasure. The hull windows are broad and ample, while a sense of direct contact with the sea is offered by the full-length deck windows.

The use of space and incredible volumes are two of the yacht’s major strengths. The style of the interiors, developed by Francesco Paszkowski in collaboration with Margherita Casprini, continues in the same vein as the Custom Line’s new planing vessels: it explores greater formal balance and there are distinctive, strong color contrasts in the furnishings and coverings. The result is a work of art on water, enriched with custom furnishings by Minotti and Royal Botania.

The new yacht is distinguished by 220 square meters of exterior floor surfaces connected to each other. Making a comeback is the revolutionary concept of the flybridge being directly connected to the bow by the spacious port walkway, while the starboard walkway leads to the cockpit, from which the flybridge is reached using the port stairway. To the stern is an advanced version of the patented DMT – Dual Mode Transom system. It features two sliding doors that cover the stairs when the vessel is in motion, thus providing an unbeatably clean-cut appearance. When the ship stops, they slide inside the hatch so that guests can climb up. From the garage, a Williams DieselJet505 tender and a three-person jet ski can be lowered into the water.

Another distinctive element of this yacht is the forward area, further expanded and divided into three separate and independent areas. The raised central island is like a private sunset lounge, consisting of a large C-shaped sofa with reclining backrests and two coffee tables in the center facing two separate sun pads. The bow area is enriched with another two large sun pads and offers an unprecedented view of the sea, spanning a total of 36 square meters of usable surface area. The cockpit boasts an extra-large convertible sofa with an adjustable backrest facing a bar unit with a fridge and an ice maker on the starboard side. The interiors of the main deck bask in the natural light provided by large floor-to-ceiling windows that increase the sense of continuity with the sea, creating a single lounge area with the cockpit when the large floor-toceiling French door is totally folded and closed. An open space of 40 square meters with heights exceeding 2 meters comprises a living area with L -shaped sofa, armchairs, and low furnishings situated before the dining area with table and chairs, designed to accommodate ten people.

Going starboard and after passing the day head, stairs lead down to the guest area of the lower deck, whereas moving forward, after the stunning Eros pietrificato con mano by the Polish artist Igor Mitoraj, you come first to the owner’s study before reaching the full-beam master cabin in the foredeck measuring 6.50 meters in width and providing the owner with spacious storage room, two dressing rooms, and a large bathroom with dual facilities and a central shower. In the first unit, an optional panoramic terrace has been added. It swings open and provides the owner with a private area directly in contact with the sea.

In the center of an artistic wall of the formal dining area designed to accommodate ten people is a polished ebony niche containing a piece titled The Dancers by the Colombian artist Fernando Botero. It is a song of sensuality, life, and freedom of forms. A large lobby separates the four large standard cabins on the lower deck: two VIP cabins amidships and two twin ones forward, all with separate bathrooms. The beds in the VIP cabins face the bulwark to make the most of the views straight out over the water at sea level, while an additional Pullman bed can be fitted in each of the two twin cabins.
