Custom Line 140 Review: Glamorous Cruising

6 minutes

As the largest yacht ever built by the brand, Custom Line 140 marries timeless elegance with sophisticated design and many new features inspired by residential architecture, topped by technical perfection and high performances

In September last year we witnessed the presenting of Custom Line 140 superyacht. With a length overall of 42.61 meters, she is the new flagship of Custom Line as a work of naval art that brings together innovative engineering and refined Italian savoir-faire.

Essentially created by Ferretti Group, Custom Line 140 is the third yacht with exterior styling and interior decoration by Francesco Paszkowski Design, working in partnership with Margherita Casprini and the Custom Line Atelier on the interiors. She is also the biggest of the three models, thus being the crown jewel of this successful cooperation.

Custom Line 140, with her sleek, powerful contours and contemporary style, has the distinctly sporty character that is a defining feature of the brand’s planing line, set off by unparalleled elegance and refinement: taught lines sweep from bow to stern in an exciting alternation of materials and colors represented by dark plate glass and light-colored structural surfaces. The most recognized stylish detail is the painted aluminum handrail with Y-shaped stanchions.

The interiors are defined by neutral, natural tones and richly textured materials

The brand’s new flagship presents spaces never seen before, with interiors extending across over 300 square meters, more than 200 square meters of outdoor areas that reflects the yacht’s superior size. The layout is spread over four decks, with the settings designed for socializing, flowing seamlessly across both exterior and interior spaces.

On each deck, the areas devoted to the owner and guests are kept completely separate from those used by the crew thanks to the naval architecture developed specifically for this superyacht, featuring external walkways and interior staircases that connect the lower deck with the sun deck and are designed exclusively for use by the crew.

Custom Line 140 interior

The best recognized interior characteristic is presence of natural light, which floods into every setting on the yacht through expansive floor-to-ceiling glazed surfaces. The interiors are defined by neutral, natural tones and richly textured materials that gratify the senses on both a tactile and visual level, coupled with ‘personality’ of the sofas and chairs featuring light, sophisticated colors alternating with bolder colors and refined materials.

The integration of the interior and exterior spaces begins on the main deck, our tour started passing through full-height glass door which unites the living area with the exterior lounge: a convivial area stylishly decorated for maximum comfort. The main saloon with dining and living areas is a formal setting defined by flowing lines that perfectly express Custom Line’s signature elegance and sophistication, with a palette of materials and decorations ranging from ivory-hued natural leather to dark oak parquet floor.

Particularly worthy of note is the refined craftsmanship embodied by the diamond-cut leather used as finishing for the ceiling and to upholster the furniture.

Huge spaces, 2.10-meter ceiling heights and four giant windows in the hull sides – the first of which on the starboard side can be opened – convey a feeling of fluidity and amplify the volumes, establishing intense, direct contact with the sea. Continuing along the deck, the central lobby has a minimalist staircase – dominated by the iconic design pendant lights made of warm and sensual Murano blown glass – connecting the main deck to the lower and upper decks. This generously sized setting usually found on yachts over 50 meters opens out aft onto the dining room with its table seating 10 guests.

Full-beam owner’s apartment

Forward, the exclusive full-beam owner’s apartment is a huge yet intimate living space with an ever-present view of the water. The entrance has a double walk-in wardrobe and leads to the cabin dominated by the central bed, characterized by a sophisticated, modern design, marked by the light-colored, ribbed wood panelling on a mirrored backing.

The lateral windows on the starboard side also make it possible to offer the version featuring a terrace suspended over the water.

The lower deck offers three VIP cabins and a guest cabin with twin beds, all with en-suite bathrooms. The colors, materials and decorations reprise the approach used in the settings on the main deck, featuring predominantly natural grey and taupe colorways to convey the exquisitely warm and welcoming feeling experienced in your own home.

The ceilings and made-to-measure furniture are upholstered in suede, while the walls are clad in sand flamed oak. A distinctive detail of the furnishings, the storage cabinets are made of glass lined with an inner metal mesh, creating a play of transparencies.

Forward in the bow, the comfortable crew area contains three double cabins with en-suite bathrooms, accommodating six members of staff, while the large captain’s cabin with en-suite bathroom is next to the bridge on the upper deck. Located aft are the large engine room and, on the port side, the garage for a Williams SportJet 525 tender and a jet ski.

The beach area is a huge platform in the stern of the yacht, with latest generation electro-hydraulic system that transforms the aft deck into a water’s edge terrace. This spacious private beach features a solarium, with the option of converting it into a fully multifunctional open-air lounge space.

The upper deck is divided into two distinct, multifunctional outdoor areas. Forward there is a spacious living area with comfortable seating, tables and sunbathing areas, connected directly to the alfresco dining area aft through two side walkways.

More than 200 square meters of outdoor areas that reflects the yacht’s superior size

This huge cockpit has a lounge area in the stern and a comfortable dining area accommodating up to 10 people around the impressive dining table, as well as over 42 square meters to enjoy at any time of day, in direct communication with the panoramic indoor skylounge that extends across more than 25 square meters.

The sundeck is a uniquely special area that stands out for its sheer space, with over 70 square meters split into three virtual outdoor areas, the relaxation area further aft, with a hydromassage tub and sunbeds, and the American bar area forward, with its impressive structural counter, are united amidships with the extended lounge area, which is furnished with wide sofas designed to adapt to different convivial situations and sheltered by the carbon fiber hard top.

The Custom Line 140 superyacht is fitted with a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines rated 2,638 mhp each. On this superyacht, like all latest generation Custom Line yachts, is available, at the request of the owner, the IMO TIER III certification. The fast displacement hull gives the yacht a top speed of 21.5 knots and a cruising speed of 18 knots, an undeniable plus point considering the yacht’s volume and displacement.
