Ferretti Group once again rewarded
Custom Line 120 honoured at the 2018 Boat Builder Awards
The choice to invest in Research & Development has once again rewarded Ferretti Group and its commitment to innovation. Further evidence came when Ferretti Group received a major recognition from the jury of the Boat Builder Awards, a prestigious event organised by MetsTrade and IBI magazine. Specifically, the Boat Builder Award in the category ‘Collaborative Solution Between A Superyacht Builder and Its Supply Chain Partner’ went to the innovative lounge door on Custom Line 120, designed by the Ferretti Group Engineering Department in collaboration with Francesco Paszkowski Design studio and developed in conjunction with Mecaer Aviation Group, an important player in the aerospace industry. The door, installed at a 45° angle, can either open traditionally with the two panels sliding sideways, or exploit a tilting mechanism to rotate upwards and disappear into the ceiling. Both operations are performed by electric motors, with the tilting rotation made possible by twin worm gears. The system also includes a non-reversible gear motor that ensures safe operation in the event of electrical failures. Through this high-tech mechanism, the tilting door creates a continuity between the cockpit and lounge areas, forming a single environment of over 80 square meters.
