Our latest luxury yachts article looks at a brand-new romantic vessel.
The eagerly awaited project designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Filippo Salvetti unites the architectural language of the maritime tradition, living materials, fine craftsmanship and the power of light, encompassing them in a perfect circle.
Launched this year, Custom Line Navetta 30 marks a new chapter in the brand’s evolution. This romantic yacht is full of charm and makes an extremely elegant and contemporary style statement.
At 28.43 m (93 ft) in length and with a beam of 7.3 m (24 ft), Navetta 30 is a product of collaboration between the Product Strategy Department led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department. The yacht is the first project with exteriors designed by Filippo Salvetti and interiors by architecture and design firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. The influence of these top professionals can be seen in every stylistic choice, across a construction process in which the details are enhanced by being set against a clean and linear design.
An in-depth approach to the design process, referencing stylistic features in the finest tradition, has generated the many unusual elements that make Navetta 30 a new icon of the sea. They range from the choice of natural, living materials like leather, wood and rope, to an unprecedented celebration of light, not to mention reiterated references to the circle as the perfect sign, one that has also inspired a return to the rounded lines typical of boats from the past, as well as the custom design of the resin film wall coating consisting of quartz powder on glass fibre. The sea metaphor is also clear to see in the colourways, and particularly in the choice of blue, as well as in the care over detail and in manufacturing processes that draw on the noble art of cabinetmaking.
The constant reference to seafaring tradition can also be seen in the rounded lines and curves of the interior spaces, furniture and window frames, combined with the use of natural materials like solid wood, leather and teak, which are free to continue their natural cycle and live a new life at every stage in their story.
