It has been a year of successes for the Custom Line brand, which builds its entire range at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona and has scored another important win with Custom Line 106' "IV Dreams." This superyacht in the Custom Line planing line was awarded the top prize in the category “Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts Below 500GT 30m to 34.9m" at the World Superyacht Awards 2020. The event is organised by international publishing group Boat International and the prizes are awarded to recently designed yachts that stand out for their technical features, style and functional innovative technology and design solutions. The award ceremony took place online November 13, 2020.
A product of collaboration between Francesco Paszkowski Design and Ferretti Group's Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, the yacht won over the panel of judges with the contemporary design of her sleek hull lines, giving the yacht a streamlined and powerful look. The wide open exterior spaces were greatly admired, featuring pared-down sophistication and the utmost in comfort for the owner and his family, with 220 square meters of interconnected walkable surfaces, from the flybridge to the bow. The interiors tailormade to reflect the owner's tastes were also a big hit with the jury of superyacht and megayacht owners and are flooded with natural light through the extensive full-height glazing on the main deck, amplifying the feeling of seamless continuity with the water.
Other winning features in the jury's opinion are the beach club, which also acts as the garage for the tender thanks to a unique system patented by the Shipyard, and the high-quality interior design of both the four guest cabins and the crew quarters.
The yacht's performance was also judged to be outstanding, as were the excellent standards of safety and comfort on board. The two MTY diesel engines, each rated 1,939 kW, drive the superyacht to a top speed of 26 knots, while at the cruising speed of 22 knots her range is 400 nautical miles and fuel consumption 780 litres per hour.
The prize awarded to Custom Line 106' "IV Dreams" demonstrates the brand's excellence in design innovation and construction quality of the entire fleet from 30 to 42 meters. This important acknowledgement achieved with the precious contribution of Francesco Paszkowski Design and the staff of the shipyard adds to the satisfaction of15 launches in 2020, made possible with production continuing seamlessly throughout the year and the constant dedication of the entire Custom Line team.
