386m of Custom Line Superyachts Launched in 2020
Despite what has no doubt been a tumultuous year so far, Custom Line has still managed to launch 11 superyachts with a total LOA of 386 metres. The Italian shipyard is not stopping there, with a further 8 launches planned to take place at the Ancona facility before the end of the year.
Custom Line, a brand of the esteemed Ferretti Group, works on these masterpieces from five dedicated work sheds in Ancona, spanning 80,000m2 in what is a world-class naval hub. This is where all work including the final fitting-out and completion work is undertaken, with dedicated Custom Line docks.
So far this year, the launches have included hull number 5 of the Custom Line 120, a fifth Navetta 42 and the 11th and 12th, 13th and 14th hulls of the successful Navetta 33. Custom Line’s commitment to delivering bespoke projects to their owners on time cannot be overstated, and its ability to continue to do so in face of the disruptions of this year is remarkable.
Stefano de Vivo, CCO of Ferretti Group, commenting on the success of the brand this year, told Superyachts.com:
"Over the past few years, Custom Line has been enjoying an organic growth and great success among owners all around the world also thanks to its tailor-made nautical art. This success is confirmed by the 11 new launches that have taken place in the first half of 2020 and by other 8 launches planned by the end of the year.
Despite the general lockdown we managed to meet the production deadlines and guarantee deliveries to shipowners on time. These latest débuts and the upcoming ones show once again the tremendous commercial success of the 28-42 metre Custom Line vessels, which are leaders in terms of comfort, technology and design."
The future looks equally as bright for Custom Line as the shipyard currently has 21 yachts in construction. Of those superyachts, 13 are in the sheds and eight are at the completion and dock testing stage before their scheduled deliveries later this year.
