Project: Ferretti Custom Line 26 Navetta Crescendo

Ferretti Custom Line will present a world premiere at the Cannes show: the 26 Navetta Crescendo, the very first model to be produced in a new semi-displacement line. Crescendo in facts represents a further evolution in Ferretti Custom Line’s semi-displacement line, evoking the universe of classical music within the sphere of Italian made style culture. The new 26 Navetta Crescendo, is a natural development of the previous 26 Navetta in the semi displacement line, and is the result of the close working relationship between Studio Zuccon International Project, the Ferretti Group’s Advanced Yacht Technology naval research and design centre, and the team of architects and designers at the Centro Stile of Ferretti Group. This team has revamped the model most notably in the windows now bigger in all areas, in the sky lounge or raised pilot house which is now extended, and a sun deck which is connected with a stairway up top. This is a first model in the revamped semi-displacement line, specially designed for the owners who prefer slow motion, a cruise in complete silence and comfort. The new model continues with the evolution of the compact semi displacement Super Yacht concept and measures 26 metres in length and almost seven in beam, with classical lines in which innovative solutions of both a formal and functional nature have been developed. In order to increase on-board space, put it to even better use, and make it even more comfortable. Moreover, the new pocket sized super yacht once again confirms the attention that Ferretti pays to the environment, guaranteeing great consumption efficiency and a considerable sailing range. The classical external lines take up the well-known shape of the Navetta line, fully complementing the interior design, and producing a harmonious set of solutions which use space to the advantage of more comfortable living. The light coloured elm wood chosen for this first yacht, and the sand and dove grey colours used for the on-board details create a warm, welcoming environment. Furnishings, fabrics and decor can be personalised according to owners’ preferences who, with the aid of the Centro Stile architects and designers, can choose from the furnishing proposals offered by top Italian and international companies. Ferretti Custom Line 26 Navetta Crescendo can accommodate ten or twelve guests in a five or six cabin layout choice. In both cases, the master suite has been located on the main deck, and a crew area accommodating four is found aft. The 26 Navetta Crescendo is powered with standard twin MAN 900hp which give a top speed of 14 knots, or optional 1100hp delivering plus two knots in wide open throttle.
