The Custom Line Super-Sized

    The sleeker, more contemporary Custom Line 112 NEXT is a significant departure from the Italian shipyard’s previous-generation 112. Launched at the Monaco yacht show in September, the stylish new design, with its banks of curved windows that bathe the interior with natural light, has been super-sized both externally and internally.

    The 112 NEXT was codesigned by Studio Zuccon International and Ferretti’s Advanced Yacht Technology division. They employed a super-sizing effect with a spacious 237-square-foot cockpit, an expansive 485-square-foot salon, and a 110-square-foot gourmet galley. At the same time, Zuccon also infused the interior with tremendous warmth, keeping the floor plans as open as possible and blending American walnut paneling and off-white fabrics with contemporary furnishings. The full-beam master suite has a private bathroom, Jacuzzi, and open-view windows.

    Custom Line also designed a feeling of openness into the yacht’s flybridge with an enormous sunning area featuring oversize sun beds, barbecue, and Jacuzzi, and the extra-large hardtop gives provides added shade. With its twin 2,775-hp MTU engines, the 112 NEXT cruises at 23 knots and reaches an impressive 26 knots. It is also built to MCA standards for chartering. Custom Line incorporates a high-tech gyro-stabilization system that reduces roll by up to 50 percent, making life on board significantly more comfortable. (www.customline-yacht.com)
