Custom Line has announced the expansion of its planing range with the Custom Line 106′, which was originally presented as a concept at the Miami Yacht Show 2018 and will make her debut near the end of 2018.
Developed in partnership with the Ferretti Group‘s Engineering Department, the Product Strategy Committee led by the engineer Piero Ferrari and internationally acclaimed designer Francesco Paszkowski, the Custom Line 106′ will be built from fibreglass and is expected to be a perfect combination of performance and modern comfort.
The extensive deck area covers 220m²/2,370ft² and all areas are interconnected: The stern has a more advanced version of the patented DMT -Dual Mode Transomsystem, where two hatches cover the stairs while in transit, and once motionless the hatches disappear into the central door section so that they can be used by guests.
The tender garage allows for the storage of a 505 Williams Jettender and a three-person jet ski, which can be lowered into the water. In comparison to other planing models built recently by Custom Line, the forward section offers even greater room: The foredeck is fitted with raised seating and the sofas have reclining backrests. In addition, the bow has a broad sunpad of 36m²/387ft².
There is an additional garage for a Williams 2.80 Jet or a three-person jet ski, and the forward section provides a walkway for guests to access the 53m²/174ft² flybridge. To protect against wind, each side is protected by a large window and shade and sunlight can be controlled through the use of two skylights in the hardtop and bimini tops and canopies.
“In the design of the new 106’, a number of the brand’s distinctive features have been emphasized and new stylistic traits have been introduced,” Francesco Paszkowski commented. “As is plain to see in various places, efforts have been made to break down the boundaries between the exterior and the interior. The new technical solutions and all of the aspects of the exterior and interior lines are closely interlinked, as they are all parts of a single architectural arrangement with perfect balance between the forms and functions.”
Floor-to-ceiling windows ensure that the main deck interior receives plenty of natural light and if future owners desire, the starboard central window can be fitted with an electronic opening mechanism. The audio air conditioning and lighting systems are integrated into the support columns, as used in the successful Custom Line 120′. The innovative software also allows guests to use their personal devices to control audio and visual entertainment.
Strong contrasts in the furnishings add to the modern appeal of the interior and this is applied to shared and private guest spaces. A full-beam Master suite in the foredeck contains two walk-in wardrobes and a large bathroom offering dual facilities and a central shower. Owners have an additional personalisation option here as well, and a private terrace can be added.
The galley leads to the crew quarters, which contain two crew cabins and a Captain’s cabin. The lower deck forward contains two VIP staterooms and two twin cabins for guests and all have en-suite facilities. there is the option of having a Pullman berth installed in each of the twin cabins.
A pair of MTU 16V engines rated at 2217 mhp provide a top speed of 23 knots, or owners can request twin MTU 16V engines rated at 2638 mhp to reach 26 knots.
