Ferretti Group is set to release its Custom Line 140’ planing superyacht in 2022, which will replace the Navetta 42 displacement model as its flagship superyacht.

The upcoming Custom Line 140’ has an overall length of 42.15m and a beam measuring 8.57m, in comparison to the Navetta 42’s dimensions at 41.8m and 8.1m.

Created in partnership with Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and its Engineering Department, the superyacht is the third Custom Line Yacht to feature interior and exterior designs by Francesco Paszkowski, with interiors in collaboration with Margherita Casprini and Custom Line Atelier.

The Custom Line 140’ has an estimated volume of just under 400GT — double that of the 199GT Navetta 30, the range’s current entry-level model. It’s also expected to reach up to a top speed of 21.5 knots based on preliminary data, thanks to its high-speed displacement. 

The hull has floor-to-ceiling glazing on deck, offering spectacular views, and its windows are also generously sized. A notable highlight of the deck is a painted aluminium handrail with Y-shaped uprights — elegant and functional design by Paszkowski.

The main deck features a 320sqft saloon and the owner’s suite, which also offers over 320 sqft of space as well. The bedroom features double everything — walk-in wardrobes, sinks, showers, and baths. You even get the option of a panoramic drop-down terrace.

The lower deck offers three VIP cabins, twin guest cabins, and a crew area that accommodates up to seven in three en-suite cabins. The captain’s cabin is on the upper deck.

The yacht makes full use of its space by having the upper deck connected to the forward area by side corridors, which can also be accessed by the bridge. 

The upper deck has a sky lounge and a 190sqft bridge. The sky lounge has a relaxation area with a hydromassage tub and free-standing furniture. The bow area features an outdoor lounge and a garage and can be used to stow a jet ski or tender.

The design of the yacht takes great care to separate the guest areas from the crew and technical areas using sealed passageways. Floating systems, special materials, and additional insulation between bulkheads and ceilings will also ensure guests have the most comfortable stay onboard.

Like all new-generation Custom Line yachts, the 140’ will be certified according to IMO Tier III standards to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides in exhaust fumes. 

Also in superyacht news, the Monaco Yacht Show had recently wrapped up on September 25. Benetti showcased the longest superyacht in the world, called the IJE. It was built for Australian billionaire James Packer and was named after his children, Indigo, Jackson, and Emanuelle (IJE). Benetti also debuted the 65m Zazou and the first Diamond 44M, a 145ft fibreglass yacht.

Options for Replacing Your Sterndrive

Options for Replacing Your Sterndrive

It’s not uncommon, but it sure is a downer. You’ve detonated your MerCruiser or Volvo Penta sterndrive, and now you’re faced with the question of rebuilding or replacing. If it’s not repairable, not all is lost.

Thanks to the sterndrive’s popularity over the decades, there are thousands of replacement drives—new, aftermarket, rebuilt and used—readily available. Depending on your brand and drive model, the price tag might be less than you think.

Mercury MerCruiser

Factory-new is a great option if cost is not a concern. You get a brand-new drive with a warranty. Mercury MerCruiser offers its Quicksilver line of replacement drive units, which are factory-built and offer a three-year warranty. A new replacement Alpha One Gen II drive retails for $5,825, while a Bravo Three retails for $9,114. These prices are for complete (upper and lower) drive assemblies, but do not include shipping or installation costs.

The Quicksilver line of Mercury drives is a complete business unit dedicated to repowering boats previously propelled by any engine and drive, not just MerCruiser. The Quicksilver drives are factory-new, not rebuilt or remanufactured. Dealers sell Quicksilver Alpha One Gen II drives for $3,264—just a bit more than half the cost of a new replacement. This is an attractive option to get back on the water with a factory-quality drive while saving substantially over the cost of a new one. Most dealers choose this route rather than to rebuild drives because the retail pricing is very competitive.

Sterndrive Engineering Inc. (SEI, sterndrive.cc) offers its own designed and manufactured replacement sterndrives and outboard gear cases. The company has earned an excellent reputation, with a three-year, no-fault warranty. Over the years, many have tested this warranty (including this writer), and it’s real: SEI will replace any of its units that fail, at no cost to the consumer. Of course, the consumer must pay to have the unit removed, boxed and shipped both ways, then reinstalled and checked—but these costs are minor relative to the cost of replacing a drive.

A SEI replacement for a MerCruiser Alpha One Gen II (complete drive unit, upper and lower combined) costs $1,595. For the Bravo One, SEI offers only the lower unit, not the upper drive. This lower unit sells for $995. SEI does not currently offer a replacement for the Bravo Three drive.

For high-performance and racing applications, the Bravo Shop (bravoshop.net) sells and provides remanufactured complete (upper and lower) Bravo drives, as well as its own Bmax high-strength drive unit for higher-horsepower and performance engines.

Single or twins; cruiser, racer or fish boat; fresh or salt water—there is a solution to worn-out sterndrives for all.

Volvo Penta

For Volvo Penta drives, replacement choices include a new factory drive or a rebuilt unit. Factory remanufactured drives are not available. New Volvo Penta drives come with a two-year warranty—extendable to three—if installed by a certified dealer. Boatwrench (boatwrench.com), a rebuilder, typically stocks over 70 rebuilt drives. As with MerCruiser, the replacement cost for a new Volvo drive is quite high. For Volvo’s most popular DPSM dual-prop drive, for example, the retail price is $9,800. Boatwrench’s price for a reman is $6,500. For the Volvo DPE (diesel engine) drive, Volvo’s price for a new replacement is $16,110, while a Boatwrench reman unit costs $7,500. Boatwrench prices include the exchange of your old drive; otherwise, it assesses a $1,000 core charge. Comparing warranties, Volvo Penta offers one year on drives, increasing to three years if installed as part of a full repower. Boatwrench drives come with a two-year warranty.

In Boatwrench’s case, its remanufacturing regimen for any drive is rigorous and exacting. The company completely disassembles a used drive, inspects and measures all components, then reassembles with new gears, bearings and seals. Most are assembled with a used (but inspected and checked) drive shaft and propeller shaft. The exterior of the drive gets body-worked and repainted with zinc chromate primer, sealer primer and enamel finish.

Older and Obsolete Drives

You might recall that OMC (Johnson/Evinrude) offered sterndrives for many years, as did Yamaha and others. Though it’s tough to find a dealer or technician today that will service one of these, both Mercury (through its Quicksilver line) and SEI offer conversion transom plates, assemblies and drives that will update and modernize the propulsion-system package for those with obsolete sterndrives.
