CRN, the Italian shipbuilder and brand of the Ferretti Group specialising in the construction of fully-custom steel and light aluminium alloy pleasure vessels between 40 and 100 m in length, has chosen the Monaco Yacht Show to present some of its new design projects, conceived to turn even the most challenging requirements of particularly demanding owners into reality.
CRN is constantly developing new concepts, also thanks to the cooperation with international designers, including Zuccon International Project, Omega Architects, Francesco Paszkowski Design, and Nuvolari Lenard, who have pencilled some of the most iconic yachts in CRN’s fleet.
55-metre M/Y CRN Superconero – Zuccon International Project
The name of this yacht draws inspiration from the historic ‘SuperConero’, dating from the 1960s. This vessel, designed by Zuccon International Project and engineered by CRN Engineering, is 55 metres long and 9 metres wide, and falls within the 500 GRT class.
This magnificent vessel features all the main solutions conceived by CRN, such as the balcony that can be enjoyed even when cruising; the terrace opening up onto the sea, perfect when the yacht is at anchor; the aft beach club; and the float-in garage for the tender, which results in one single, open area connected to the beach club, creating a wide lounge area at the sea level.
With her huge internal volumes and the extensive use of glass for the large full-height windows ensuring a constant visual contact with nature, the 55 m M/Y Superconero is a truly unique vessel and a real dream for those owners wishing to experience total freedom at sea.
61-metre M/Y CRN Oceansport and 75-metre M/Y Oceansport – Omega Architects
Pencilled by Omega Architects, these two 61-metre and 75-metre megayachts, having a beam of 11 and 13 metres respectively, draw inspiration from the same concept, which perfectly matches CRN’s DNA. Indeed, the Oceansport line combines the outstanding seaworthiness ensured by CRN naval platforms, the sporty, streamlined profile characterizing all Omega Architects’ creations, and harmonious, slender lines, further enhanced by the dark side windows that are joined together to create a long, uninterrupted dark glazing cutting across both the main and upper decks.
Both Oceansport models are designed and engineered with a painstaking care for proportion, optimizing the areas devoted to guests, the spaciousness and airiness of those conceived for conviviality, and the beach club with a wellness and fitness area, featuring a sauna, a gym, and a pool. Both yachts can boast full-height windows on both sides in the aft area of the main deck, ensuring a breathtaking view on the sea while preserving the guests’ privacy.
72-metre M/Y CRN – Francesco Paszkowski Design
While drawing inspiration from and maintaining the family feeling with 61 m M/Y Saramour (the first superyacht built by CRN in cooperation with Architect Paszkowski), this new 72m project can rely on much larger volumes and introduce innovative architectural solutions.
The philosophy behind this project revolves around three basic principles: increasingly slender lines that result in a very light silhouette; rounded shapes making the yacht generally more compact; and an extensive use of linear glazed surfaces as well as see-through balconies, which stylishly eliminate any barriers between the yacht and the water, air, nature.
72 metres long and 13 metres wide, this vessel shows great care for onboard conviviality and relaxation, as proven by several dining areas, an entertainment area on the upper deck, as well as the gym, sauna, and massage room for guests. The relationship with the surrounding elements – mainly air and water – is a key feature in this yacht’s concept, which has been realised by creating terraces overlooking the sea, outdoor swimming pools, wide glazed surfaces and, obviously, a spacious beach club – all aiming at ensuring direct visual contact with the sea.
62-metre M/Y CRN – Nuvolari Lenard
62 metres long and with a beam of 12 metres, CRN’s hull number 137 is a new captivating naval project developed by CRN’s engineering department in close cooperation with the Italian design firm Nuvolari Lenard, who has handled the concept and the exterior & interior design.
Between the hull and the superstructure, the yacht’s profile develops almost creating a wave-like movement, and making the vessel’s soft, sinuous lines even more charming, while the superstructure ends in a clear-cut vertical line onto the inverted bow – these were the guiding principles during the design and development of CRN’s new pleasure vessel, which will feature a master deck with the owner’s suite located aft and enjoying a magnificent sea view.
Following the signature of the contract in the summer, the construction of this yacht will start at the end of 2016, with the launch scheduled in 2019.
Three new megayachts are currently under construction at CRN’s shipyard, Ferretti Group’s building facility for large crafts, as well as one of the leading pleasure boating hubs in Europe: 79-metre M/Y CRN 135, bound to become the second largest vessel ever built by CRN, with exteriors designed by Zuccon International Project and interiors by Laura Sessa; 74 m M/Y CRN 131, whose exteriors were developed in
cooperation with Zuccon International Project and interiors with Andrew Winch Interior Designer, expected to be launched over the next few months; and a 50 m M/Y Superconero boasting exteriors by Zuccon International Project, who also cooperated with CRN Interior Design for the interiors.
