The new planing yacht, the first designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, is a masterpiece of nautical art with excellent standards in design, comfort , and performance.
A feast for the eyes and a pleasure for those who will be onboard at sea, Custom Line 120’ bursts onto  the  nautical  scene  with  the  explosive force  of  new  innovations  that are  sure  to leave  their mark.

The newest member of the brand’s planing line reimagines and combines stylistic elements from automotive design  and  residential architecture, with  the  addition  of in- depth research  aimed  at enhancing the shapes and volumes.
Produced in collaboration with  the Ferretti  Group Strategic  Product Committee, headed by engineer Piero Ferrari, and the Engineering Department, it is the first Custom Line yacht to bear the signature of Francesco Paszkowski Design.
An array of new key features were included, starting with the design of the hull, with its bottom lines characterized by the extension of the quickwork towards the bow.
This choice is the result of careful analyses aimed at reducing  resistance to guarantee  exceptional performance  and  consumption, all considering the volumes and the displacement of the vessel.
The  hull  design  is  inspired  by  technologies used  for racing power yachts,  with  particular  attention and care given to the production of the structures to ensure the maximum
strength and lightness.
In addition, expert use of carbon in the superstructure made it possible to achieve an elegant design of the part of the fly bridge  that extends toward the  bow without the need  for  supporting props in the cockpit.

EXTERIOR DESIGN
The  design  proposes  an  aesthetic standard based  on perfectly clean  lines  and  forms , which created a coherent unity between the exterior and interior design.
The profile is sleek and powerful: taut lines run from  stern to bow, creating a spectacular alternation of materials and colours in the light structural surfaces and darktinted windows.
The  hull  windows  are  large  and generous, and floor - to - ceiling windows on the  main  deck offer direct  contact with the sea,  thanks  to pulpits that take  the  place  of  the
traditional gunwales.
The side windows on the flybridge make it possible to have a well - sheltered panoramic sun deck.

COCKPIT AND INTERIORS OF THE MAIN DECK
The cockpit features an innovative glass door that gives access to the lounge. It is inclined at a 45° angle and, in addition to the usual slide opening of the two glass panels, it
has a tilting mechanism so  that  it can  be raised completely  up  to  insert  into  the ceiling.
Developed  in  conjunction  with Mecaer  Aviation  Group, a  company that  works  in the  aeronautical  industry,  the  door  makes  it possible to join the cockpit area to the lounge
to create a single environment of more than 80 sq m (861  sq  ft) covered  in  teak,  with  curtains  that  can  be utilized  for  separation.
Another  outstanding innovation is   the elevation of   the
lounge   floor,   which   uses   a   floating   floor   to   provide   an unparalleled view of the sea.
The design is inspired by the tenets of luxury residential interior design and proposes, among other elements: - support columns that incorporate lighting, audio, and air -
conditioning systems - the large central lounge, fitted with wide, tall side windows that create an effect of greater continuity with the sea.
Beyond  the  formal  dining zone, the lobby gives  access onto  the walkway  through  a  large  glass door, as well as belowdecks and to the master suite.
From the opposite wall, there is access to the pantry – also  reachab le  from  the  outside – and  then  the  galley, from  which the crew  quarters
below can be reached.
The  pantry also gives  access  to the navigation bridge.  Here, the  captain  can  use the LOOP integrated  bridge system  created  in  conjunction  with Naviop - Simrad,  which has
touchscreens installed  seamlessly  into  the  dashboard,  creating a single direct interface with  the  ship  functions and enabling total control.
The wide  body owner’s suite of  over 35sqm is  outfitted  with  a  separate dressing  room and full beam bathroom with dual facilities, vanity, and a central shower.
On request, the owner can also have a panoramic terrace installed.

LOWER DECK
There are 4 guest cabins on the lower deck. The 2 VIP cabins astern feature a special arrangement of the beds, which facet he bulwark to make the most of the view from the large hull windows. The two forward cabins have single beds, to which a pullman bed can be added.
All the cabins have an en-suite bathroom  with  separate  shower.
The crew  quarters forward include a  large dinette, captain’s cabin with desk and  private  bathroom,  a hostess cabin, and two double cabins for  the sailors, all with private bathroom and separate shower.

EXTERNAL AREAS
The comfort of a flybridge and the sportiness of a coupé alsoblend wonderfully on the sun deck, a panoramic space to enjoy in complete privacy.
It features a relaxation area with whirlpool tub and free - standing furniture, and can beprotected from the sun thanks to a retractable bimini top in the hard  top equipped  with  a skylight.
An  innovative concept enables  a direct  connection  from the flybridge to the forward zone by means of lateral corridors with additional access from the monkey bridge.
This feature makes it possible to have a single large deck of 100 sqm.
Two sun pads at the sides of the walkway lead to the foredeck, furnished with a large dinette.
At the stern,the patented DMT-Dual Mode Transom system is implemented with the installation of two  hatches  that conceal  the  stairs  to  the  cockpit when the  ship  is cruising,  providing  an exceptionally clean aesthetic.
When the  ship is  stopped, the stairs pass through the  garage  door, allowing guests to climb aboard.
From the garage, a tender of up to 5.
65 meters and a three-person jet ski can be lowered into thewater.
Consistent  with  the Custom  Line tradition, there  is  another garage forward, which can  be used to store a 3. 25m tender or a jet ski.

TECHNOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE
Custom Line 120’ installs a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines that generate 2, 638Mhp, allowing a cruising speed of 21 knotsand top speed of 25knots (preliminary data).
An interesting option is the economical cruising speed of 11knots, with a range of up to 1100 nautical miles (preliminary data).
Comfort  is  also  guaranteed  when  the  ship  is  at  anchor, thanks  to  the standard installation dielectro-hydraulic stabilizing fins, offering both underway and zero speed modes.
The  utmost attention has  also  been  given  to  acoustic comfort in  order  to  reduce  the  impact  of engines and generators during navigation and at roadstead:
Custom Line 120’features a floating floor and supplementary thermal insulation between the bulkheads and in the ceilings.
