Ferretti Custom Line 108
Ferretti Custom Line is building on the success of its 100-foot model (14 hulls sold in three years) with a 108-foot maxi yacht that will debut in summer 2015.
The builder says two of the 108s already have been ordered solely from the plans, which were based on research by AYT&D Department with design by Zuccon International Project.
The 108 increases interior volume when compared with the 100, and Ferretti Group’s Dual Mode Transom electrical-hydraulic system gives guests a larger aft space as well, all the while allowing for a float-in garage that houses a tender and personal watercraft with an integrated beach club.
Her profile shows rectangular hull windows on the four belowdecks guest staterooms — a first for Ferretti — and the windows are wider than those on the 100, allowing for more natural light. Main deck spaces include a salon and dining area, a cocktail space with refrigerator and ice maker, and a forward master stateroom with lounge and walk-in closet.
Outdoor dining is on the flybridge deck along with seating, a cocktail bar and space for either freestanding furniture or a davit and water toy.
Ferretti Group’s Centro Stile handled interior décor. Hull No. 1 will be built with dark oak woodwork, leather and nubuck furniture and linings, marble bathrooms and light-shaded parquet floors. Ceiling panels will include LED spotlights, and much of the furniture will have backlighted edges. The builder’s newly introduced VOTIS (Videoworks One Touch Infotainment System) will be standard, replacing all remote controls with an iPad.
Twin 2,638-mhp MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines will be standard, producing a top speed of 26 knots and a cruising speed of 23 knots. At a more economical cruising speed of 12 knots, the 108’s range will be 1,000 nautical miles, based on Ferretti’s preliminary data.
