5 Things To Know About The New Custom Line Navetta 30 By Italian Shipbuilder Ferretti Group
1/5 A sportier exterior designed by Filippo Salvetti
The Navetta 30 showcases a new realm of possibilities of how yachts are designed today, marking many firsts in the Navetta line. Its exterior design and concept was helmed by Italian architect Filippo Salvetti, which resulted in a sporty vessel that measures 93ft in length and 24ft in beam. Salvetti notes that "it was essential to find the right balance between the hull and the superstructure, and emphasise the way the external lines stretch out horizontally to add a vivacious verve to this distinctive, complex creation".
The Navetta 30's race-ready impression is largely attributed to two key design features. Firstly, the drop from the superstructure on the upper deck has been shortened to meet with the glazed window on the owner's cabin. This is followed by a distinct gap to separate the hull and superstructure by raising the joints with the upper deck. Both features render a more streamlined shape on the exterior and give it a sportier outlook.
2/5 Incredible capacity that spreads across three decks
The sheer volume provided onboard is considered unprecedented for a yacht considering its length; there are also three decks with full beam configuration for guests to luxuriate in.
For a start, guests can enjoy a full-beam lounge on the main deck, while owners can retreat back to their suite and experience the same spatial offerings. Four VIP cabins and a crew area are available on the lower deck, while a dining and separate lounge area are located on the upper deck.
In the summer, guests can also head up to the expansive sun deck to soak up the rays or bask in the warm hues as they cruise into the sunset.
3/5 Stunning interior design
Purposefully designed with a residential feel in mind, the Navetta 30 feels like home the minute guests come on board, thanks to the collaboration with the prestigious Milan-based design practice, Citterio Viel, which was involved in the construction process from the very beginning. "The interior design was developed in partnership with the engineers and architects who designed the hull of the yacht," shared Patricia Viel, co-founder of the Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel architecture firm. As designers made use of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, they were able to ensure that both "lighting and interior design schemes fit in flawlessly around the shape of the hull".
The result is two main interior design concepts anchored in traditional maritime styles. Owners can choose between a textured finish that features a youthful and less elaborate aesthetic, or a sophisticated approach that features wood as the main material and theme throughout all spaces. Built-in furniture pieces were also specially designed using natural leather, solid wood and plywood, peppered with one-of-a-kind decorative pieces that showcase exquisite Italian craftsmanship that complements the interiors.

4/5 Ideal for long distance travel
As the smallest displacement yacht in the Custom Line range, the Navetta 30 is equipped with Twin MAN 16 800 mhp engines which enables the vessel to cruise at a top speed of 14 knots. It also consumes fuel at a minimal amount, with an available fuel-efficient speed of 10 knots.

5/5 Customisable to your preference
Apart from choosing between two interior designs to fit your cruising lifestyle, owners are able to choose between two more engines—namely the Twin MAN V8 1000 mhp or Twin MAN V8 1200 mhp engines. Stabilising fins and a Seakeeper system are also available on request for great stability and maximum comfort as the yacht is anchored.
