Custom Line held the technical launch of its second Navetta 28, the sister of the Navetta 33.

The maxi yacht, built at the Ferretti Group’s shipyard in Mondolfo, Italy, is the second in Custom Line’s semidisplacement series, which made its debut last fall at the Cannes, Monaco and Genoa boat shows.

The owner has chosen a warm metal gray named Terra di Capri for the exterior. The interior decor is by Dutch designer Eric Kuster, who worked in close cooperation with Centro Stile Ferretti Group and the Studio Zuccon International Project.

The layout has been modified for the 28. The bar area, which was on the main deck, is in the upper-deck living room on the 28. A circular sliding glazing system turns the upper deck into a huge open space overlooking the sea, which from the panoramic cockpit reaches the living area, located amidships.

The sun deck — a private area exclusively reserved for the owner and his guests — has been customized, too, installing the controlled-temperature jacuzzi aft, rather than forward.

In a few weeks, the maxi yacht will be officially delivered to its owner, who is from a northern European country, and then taken to south France, where it will cruise next summer.
