Created in collaboration with the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, Custom Line 140′ is the third Custom Line yacht with exterior styling and interior design by Francesco Paszkowski Design, working in partnership with Margherita Casprini and l Custom Line workshop on interiors.

The brand’s new flagship features never-before-seen spaces, with interiors spanning over 300m², over 200m² of exterior space and a layout that reflects the yacht’s superior size.
The layout is spread over four decks, with settings designed for socializing flowing seamlessly into outdoor and indoor spaces. On each deck, the spaces dedicated to the owner and guests are completely separated from those used by the crew thanks to the naval architecture developed specifically for this superyacht, with exterior gangways and interior stairs that connect the lower deck to the sun and are designed exclusively for use by the crew.

Interiors are defined by neutral, natural tones and richly textured materials that satisfy the senses both tactilely and visually. The beauty and colors defined for the exteriors and interior living areas of the main and upper decks are distinguished in the choice of furnishings, where the larger-than-life personality of the sofas and chairs features light and sophisticated colors alternating with bolder. and refined materials.
The main deck is characterized by a total integration of interior and exterior spaces, as well as a clear separation between guest areas and crew work areas to ensure complete privacy for the owner. The 45m² main salon with dining and sitting area is a formal setting designed with a palette of materials and decorations ranging from ivory colored natural leather to dark oak flooring. Of particular note is the fine craftsmanship embodied in the diamond cut leather used as a finish for the ceiling and to upholster the furniture.
Immense spaces, ceiling heights of 2.10 meters and four giant portholes in the hull sides – the first to starboard of which can be opened – give a feeling of fluidity and amplify the volumes, establishing an intense and direct contact with the sea.
Continuing along the deck, the central hall features a minimalist staircase – dominated by the iconic designer pendant lights in warm and sensuous Murano blown glass – connecting the main deck to the lower and upper decks. This generously sized frame, usually found on yachts over 50 meters, opens aft to the dining room with its table that can accommodate 10 guests.

The beach is a huge platform at the rear of the yacht, with a state-of-the-art electro-hydraulic system that transforms the aft deck into a waterside terrace. This spacious private beach has a solarium, with the possibility of converting it into a fully multifunctional outdoor lounge area, and a perfect continuity between the interiors and exteriors of the yacht and the sea.
The upper deck is divided into two distinct and multifunctional outdoor spaces. Forward there is a spacious living area with comfortable seats, tables and sunbeds in which to fully experience the emotion of being in direct contact with the water, directly connected to the dining area in the open air aft by two side gangways, one on the starboard side for the exclusive use of the owner and guests, and the other on the port side for the crew. A garage located at the front can accommodate a dinghy or a rescue boat.
