World Superyacht Awards 2020
Custom Line 106’ wins in the category “Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts Below 500GT 30m to 34.9m”.
This class presented the judges with an impressive line-up of equally sized yachts, all of which showed an abundance of admirable qualities. Assessing the combination of features, such as exterior styling, the layout of decks and interior, technical innovation and build quality that come together to create the most well-rounded vessel is never an easy task, but after thorough discussion the secret ballot revealed the winner as IV Dreams.
The first of a new series from Custom Line, a member of the Ferretti Group, impressed the judges with its modern exterior styling, whose flowing lines incorporated large outdoor areas on the sundeck and foredeck. They also noted a spacious, well-lit interior that offers good connectivity with the outside surroundings through three wide, sliding doors in the saloon and a balcony opening from the master cabin. Four further en-suite cabins – two doubles, and two twins each equipped with a Pullman berth – provide high-quality accommodation for guests.
Additionally, the judges were impressed by the beach club that doubles as a tender garage – a unique system patented by the yard – and the well-designed crew quarters. Mechanically, the Custom Line 106 was found to be very well equipped. A pair of MTU diesels, each developing 1,939kW, drive it to a top speed of 26 knots, while at her 22-knot continuous cruising speed she delivers a 400-nautical-mile range – a fuel burn of 780 litres per hour. Range is increased to 1,050 nautical miles when cruising in displacement mode at 12 knots. This winning yacht, the judges concluded, provides a well-balanced blend of good design, quality build and desirable facilities.
