Erick van Egeraat comments:We are very proud of this result. Specifically because this award underlines the fact that we continue to explore new territory and that we lead the way in terms of innovation, craftsmanship and creating quality and value. Each of my projects displays my personal vision, and especially the design of MySky took this to a whole new level. The more someone is aiming for a result which is not particularly standard, the more I get excited. This ship’s design not an ultra-avant-garde design, but it is definitely not conventional. It has been a clear case of how distinct you can be without being, let’s say, in your face, or obnoxious and at all times remaining fully focused on creating maximum satisfaction for our clients.

About NAVETTA 28

A sister ship to superyacht Navetta 33 Crescendo, luxury yacht Navetta 28 made her world premiere at the last year’s Cannes Yachting Festival. Entirely constructed in the production facility in Italy’s Mondolfo, the vessel boasts a wide range of new elements, including the panoramic dining area, with a circular sliding glazed door system that enables a very flexible use of the upper deck.

The highly innovative Navetta 28 superyacht also boasts the Dual Mode Transom (DMT), a Ferretti Group patent, in the aft area. This enables to combine into one single system a floodable garage, a bathing platform, as well as a beach club of dimensions unprecedented on any other models of this size.

Further innovation aboard super yacht Navetta 28 represents the audio/video equipment, thanks to the “VOTIS” system (Videoworks One Touch Infotainment System). This enables to use an iPad to control the on-board entertainment system, thereby replacing all the remote controls of the various A/V equipment in the main deck salon with one single device. The control system can also be extended to the other areas of the yacht.

Navetta 28 superyacht is run by twin MAN V8 1200 mhp diesels, achieving a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 13,5 knots. The vessel is also fitted as a standard with electro-hydraulic stabilizing fins with “underway” function and gyroscopic stabilizers.
