Joining the planing lineup, the Custom Line 108 (33m) is the heir of her 100-foot predecessor and will make her debut next summer. Ferretti says the team involved in the development of this new project were able to conceive an even sportier and stylish yacht, characterized by large volumes, sophisticated and fully-customizable interiors, and state-of-the-art technological solutions.
Stefano De Vivo, Ferretti Group’s chief commercial officer, comments on the new project: “We have perfected an already winning product, implementing on this new 108- footer – among other things – the extraordinary innovations that were presented during the autumn boat shows, such as the patented Dual Mode Transom system and the VOTIS infotainment system. And our choice has been immediately endorsed by the market: two hulls have already been sold (in Europe, by the way). Over the next few months we intend to widen our new-customer base as much as possible and we hope reap the benefits of our work next summer, when the 108′ will officially make its debut.”
The new model is the outcome of the cooperation between the research and development AYT&D Department and design firm Zuccon International Project. It features much larger volumes than the model it draws inspiration from. The overall length has been increased to 32.95 metres (108 ft./1 in.) and the beam is 7.25 metres (23 ft./9 in.), resulting in over one square metre more on the main deck and the flybridge.
The aft area has been enlarged thanks to the installation of the Dual Mode Transom (DMT), Ferretti Group’s patented electrical-hydraulic system, which allows to open the aft door both upwards and downwards. In this way, a float-in garage fitting an over-5 metre tender and a PWC, and a submersible transom. A beach club reaching almost 15 sq. metres can be integrated into one single system, a solution presented for the first time last September on the Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28.
