The 94' "VANILLA" is the first motor yacht in the Ferretti Custom Line range and also represents the first of the three models of the series, which will also include the 104' and 112' versions. A result of the collaboration between the Ferretti Engineering Division and the Zuccon International Project Office, the 94' has been built with the most up-to-date construction techniques. The preliminary phases of construction of the 94' were characterised by the design and production of modular dies and hulls in composite material. The division of the below deck spaces has been obtained by means of structural bulkheads in Aramat and the interior environments are divided in a rational manner, in order to make the time spent on board always enjoyable. Despite the large volumes of the hull and the upper works, what immediately impresses most about this motor yacht is the harmony of the forms, which the design work has managed to obtain with modern stylistic solutions studied right down to the minimum details. The spaces on board are everywhere very welcoming, made through the handcrafted processing of prestigious woods based on a rational internal design. The boat owner's stateroom has been placed on the main deck, a solution that has made it possible to obtain a particularly spacious environment in which there is also a private bathroom with changing room. On the lower deck are the guest staterooms, of which one is a double room, and two are twin rooms with parallel beds, all with their private bathroom and changing room. For the crew, there are two cabins with respective bathrooms and a large dinette. Here are the figures for the Custom Line 94: overall length m. 28,80; maximum width m. 7,08; immersion under the propellers m. 1,75; displacement at full load Kg 95.000; maximum speed 26,5 knots, cruising speed 25,5 knots; range at cruising speed 465 miles; fuel tank capacity 11.800 litres; water tank capacity 3.000 litres; available motorization 2x2.000 HP or 2x1.800 HP MTU.
