Last year Ferretti, along with Francesco Paszkowski Design Studio and Mecaer Aviation Group picked up the inaugural award for ’Collaborative Solution between a Superyacht Builder and its Supply Chain partner’ in the 2018 Boat Builder Awards in association with Raymarine. The countdown’s now on to find the standout projects for 2019
The large sliding and tilting aft door of Ferretti’s Custom Line 120, developed in collaboration with Francesco Paszkowski Design Studio and Mecaer Aviation Group, was the inaugural winner of the Collaborative Solution between a Superyacht Builder and its Supply Chain Partner award, sponsored by Lumishore, at the 2018 Boat Builder Awards, held in association with Raymarine. Now the design ethos behind the 120 has been carried through into the new Custom Line 106, which heralds the second collaboration between the Francesco Paszkowski Design Studio and the Italian boatbuilder.
The new yacht, launched officially in June at the 2019 Venice Boat Show, has some 220m² of exterior interconnected floor surfaces and features a novel concept whereby the flybridge directly connects to the bow through a generous port walkway, while the starboard walkway leads to the cockpit. The flybridge is reached using the port stairway. Notably to the stern is an advanced version of the patented DMT - Dual Mode Transom system. It features two sliding doors that cover the stairs when the vessel is in motion, thus providing a sleek, clean-cut appearance. When the vessel stops, the doors slide inside the hatch so that guests can climb up. From the garage, a Williams DieselJet505 tender and a three-person PWC can be lowered into the water.
