In the title compound, C32H30F2O4, the benzene rings of the benzoyl groups make dihedral angles of 74.55 (6) and 74.39 (7)° with the naphthalene ring system. In the crystal, intra- and intermolecular C-H interactions are observed between the butoxy group and the aromatic rings. There are also C-HF hydrogen bonds present that link the molecules into chains propagating along .
