The Custom Line 120’ is the first Custom Line planing yacht designed by the Milanese architect and renowned luxury yacht designer Francesco Paszkowski. Presented at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the yacht is a collaboration between the architect’s studio, the Ferretti Group Strategic Product Committee and Engineering Department. The Custom Line 120’ will be constructed in the Group’s plants in La Spezia and will be launched next summer.
To reflect the lifestyle of her owner, the Custom Line 120’ combines stylistic elements from automotive design and residential architecture. She boasts a sleek and powerful profile which is defined by strong lines running from bow to stern. The cockpit cover and the hardtop, both in metallic gray, give a more aggressive and dynamic look even while in port or at anchor. The cockpit boasts the innovative large window that is divided in two sections and can be opened separately. Developed in collaboration with a company active in the aviation industry, it has an inclination that draws inspiration from the screen of a tablet.
Another prominent innovation is the elevation of the superstructure. This height difference, compared to the bridge, allows for an unparalleled view from the raised salon. The side windows, which are slightly curved, enhance the feeling of living close to the sea.
The wide body Master suite, with large windows, has a double bed on the left and a seating area on the starboard side. The bathroom has two sinks, double toilets and a central shower. There are 4 guest cabins: 2 aft doubles feature a spectacular arrangement of beds, aimed at the side to enhance the view through the large hull windows. The 2 forward cabins have single beds to which you can add a pullman bed. All are equipped with an en-suite bathroom with separate shower.
The panoramic bridge on the upper deck is protected by the side windows. The relaxation area, with hot tub and freestanding furniture, can be sheltered from the sun by a retractable bimini hard top supported by two poles integrated in the superstructure.
Custom Line 120′ is powered with a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines with 2638 mhp, reaching up to 22 knots cruising speed and 25 knots at top speed (preliminary data). Interesting is the speed of the economic cruising at 11 knots, which will provide a range exceeding 1,050 nautical miles (preliminary data). The highest level comfort at anchor is possible thanks to the standard installation of stabilizer fins with electro underway functionality and zero speed, and propeller in the bow thrusters. On request a second propeller at the stern and gyrostabilizers can be installed. Maximum attention is also given to sound proofing and reducing the impact of power units and generators during the stop at anchor: Custom Line 120 ‘has a floating floor and an additional insulation between bulkheads and ceilings. The integrated bridge was built along with Axon Marine by NAVIOP.
