The Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28 has a 28.31-meter (92.11-foot) length overall (LOA) and a hull length (HL) just below 24 meters (78.8 feet), allowing it to be classified as a Category A EC pleasure boat. Its full beam is 7 meters (23 feet).
The Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28 inherits various innovative solutions already in place on its ‘sister’ and flagship Navetta 33 Crescendo, but also includes several innovations, starting from an unmistakable outer profile, whose elegant and sinuous lines add a touch of sophistication to this yacht built with unrivalled craftsmanship, to the point of making it a true sculpture on the sea whose rounded shapes seem to have been moulded by the sea breeze itself.
Among the many details combining aesthetic features and functional solutions is, for instance, the circular sliding glazed door system in the panoramic dining area, located on the upper deck, which ensures a very flexible use of this area, allowing it to be closed towards the stern and connected to the salon, or, conversely, opened towards the outdoor areas. The wide sun-deck is a comfortable private deck for the owner and his guests, which upon request can be fitted with a Jacuzzi and an awning.
Natural light is the dominating element of the interiors: on the main deck, a continuous glazing stretches from bow to stern, widening amidships, while a series of innovative, extraordinarily large (1.4 sq. m each), stanchion-free hull windows have been installed for the first time on this model, at the height of the four guest cabins, and feature a very original design thanks to two ‘invisible’ portholes that are glued on the glass itself instead of being anchored to a fibreglass frame. Designed by Engineering department in cooperation with the Italian company Amaregroup, these special windows have passed a series of tests performed by RINA (Italian Naval Registry) to obtain the Type Approval certificate - a hydrostatic test at a pressure of 0.85 bars aimed at verifying any possible deformations and leaks -, as well as additional crash and breaking tests carried out voluntarily by the Ferretti Group.
The Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28 immediately strikes for its absolutely innovative aft outer area, which is bound to become a trend-setter in the maxi yacht sector thanks to the Dual Mode Transom (DMT), the result of the cooperation between the Engineering department and the Group’s technical partners, Centro Stile srl and Besenzoni SpA. The DMT is an exclusive patent by Ferretti Group which provides huge advantages in terms of convenience, safety, and comfort, perfectly blending into one single system a floodable garage, a bathing platform, and a beach club of unparalleled dimensions on any other models of similar size.
This revolutionary electro-hydraulic system allows to open the hatch both upwards and downwards, thanks to one single pair of pistons, combining together three different functions and maximising the use of this area. When the hatch is opened upwards, access is gained to the wide floodable garage, which can store a jet tender up to 4.45 meters long; the latter can be easily launched or hauled by means of a few safe procedures without using a davit, but simply lowering the central part of the platform into the water, so that the tender can float inside the garage. The central submersible platform can also become a comfortable surface from which to dive into the sea or get back on board, but it can also be used as a lift for water toys and other equipment. The garage, indeed, can also be used to store, for instance, diving equipment.
When the hatch is opened downwards - even with the tender inside the garage - an approximately 9 sq. m beach area is obtained, since the hatch, completely open, turns into a horizontal platform flush with the two side areas of the aft bathing platform. To this purpose, the inside wall of the hatch has been lined in teak. A second teak sliding platform fitted on the ceiling of the garage may also be lowered to the level of the door to cover a large part of the garage, thereby further extending the beach area by an additional 6 meters, reaching a total area of almost 15 sq. m.
