Project: Ferretti Custom Line 28 Navetta

Ferretti presents the project for a new Custom Line 28 Navetta, a model which will replace the 26 as entry level of the semi displacement line. Designed as all Ferretti Custom Line by the usual Zuccon and the Group's Advanced Yacht Technology department cooperation the 28 Navetta will make its debut in the coming Cannes 2014 boat show.  For this model Giovanni Zuccon gave the 28 Navetta a more explorer yacht look, thanks to the higher bow, mid-ship reverse sheer line, a triple-deck design which makes fuller use of the upper floor, and the sun bridge up top.  The 28 Navetta also comes with two important innovations; patented dual mode transom, and the innovative RINA Italian registry certified 1.4 square meters view windows in the lower deck for the cabins produced with Amaregroup. The patented dual mode transom made in collaboration with Besenzoni makes the 28 Navetta stand out for two important items; largest bathing platform beach space of nine square meters in its size and tender garage for up to 4.45 meters.  Goes without saying that easy hauling is the word for the tender launch and recovery and there is no need for any davit in doing this operation thanks to the mechanism of the flood-able garage.  Accommodation wise the 28 Navetta will offer five guest cabins with an owners room on the main deck. Three similar sized VIP rooms; two at midships and one to port side characterize the standard layout. The 28 Navetta also has two options for the main deck; with the main difference of the plans being the astern bar to starboard in plan B. Engine wise the Ferretti Custom Line 28 Navetta will be powered by twin MAN 1200hp engines, which give a top speed of 16 knots, 13 of cruise and long range of 1250 nautical miles at an economic 10 knots.  The 28 Navetta is also a step ahead in the construction and will be fully infusion built, use special sun resistant materials for the final paint finish, and has a high attention for the sound proofing of the vessel to guarantee maximum silence during navigation.
