Custom Line launches first all-aluminium yacht

Custom Line 50 M/Y Asante

The first all-aluminium yacht by Custom Line has hit the water at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona, Italy.

The launch was celebrated with a private ceremony attended by shipyard representatives and the owner’s family.

Custom Line 50 M/Y Asante is a new entry in the metal yacht segment under 500 GT and is the brand’s new 50-metre made-to-measure alloy line flagship.

Designed and built entirely from aluminium, with a displacement hull under 499 GT, a length of 49.94m and a beam of 9.6m, the new Custom Line 50 is the result of collaboration between the Product Strategy Department led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Superyachts Division Engineering team.

The yacht extends across four decks, with a layout design centred around the master suite forward on the upper deck. The exterior styling is by Filippo Salvetti, while ACPV Architects’ Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel designed the interiors.

“A 50-metre dream. This is the new Custom Line 50, confirming the brand’s state of grace at both design and production level,” says Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi.

“Cutting-edge research and innovation, in terms of both style and materials, come together in the use of aluminium, which also offers significant performance and fuel consumption benefits.

“The new flagship, which opens up a new market segment for Custom Line, is a vessel bathed in light and water born out of extraordinarily in-depth and effective studies into the yacht’s volumes and spaces.”

The guest areas and lounges on the main and upper decks feature large floor-to-ceiling windows and reflective surfaces to enhance the sense of direct contact with the water.

The water’s-edge beach club, which has direct access to the aft outdoor area on the main deck, is fitted out as a private lounge. These two exterior spaces are integrated by the rectangular pool in the stern.

The owner’s stateroom, surrounded by windows offering a panoramic view, provides direct access to a large private terrace in the bow. This terrace features a spacious and private lounge area with sunpad.

The superyacht has four more VIP cabins on the lower deck, accommodating a total of 12 guests on board and nine crew, including the captain whose cabin is located next to the wheelhouse.

Brokerage house Performance Boats USA acted as the owner’s representative.

The Custom Line 50 M/Y Asante will make its world debut at the 2024 Monaco Yacht Show in September.
