New Model: Ferretti Custom Line 100

Ferretti Custom Line launched the new 100 model the past Spring, one of the most modern and revolutionary designs coming from the Italian builder in recent times.  Designed as since twenty years any Ferretti who come with this name by Zuccon, the Custom Line 100 is very different to the smaller and bigger sister.  Showing all this the Custom Line 97 which is very similar in size but more classic Ferretti in looks will be so far kept in production, and this as stated by the company brand manager.  The main difference in the Ferretti Custom Line 100 is surely the wide body fore peak, but also the design of the coach roof and the shape of the large windows points towards revolution in looks which I think we will be seeing more in the newer planning series in future times.  The plan of the Ferretti Custom Line 100 is for two and half deck with the helm located in a raised pilot house being the half deck which transits between the flybridge and lower living area.  Down in the main deck which takes the living area from midships to aft with the seperate galley included, and to fore being dedicated to the owners stateroom.  This being a spacious affair having a beauty study, dining breakfast table for two, walk in wardrobe, and spacious bathroom.  Below is an area reserved for guests with four double cabins with two VIP suites located to midships.  To fore peak is the crew quarters with three double cabins, three shower heads, and an L-shaped sofa for relaxation.  The aft area has been left to be used as a beach with the crew cabins located back to fore calling a bit for a return to the past here.  Power is from twin MTU latest 2639hp engines which should give a max speed of about 26 knots.
