CRN, Italian shipbuilder and brand of Ferretti Group specialising in the construction of fully custom steel and aluminium pleasure vessels between 40 and 100 metres, is excited to share the first details of the shipyard’s hull number 137. The new yacht has been engineered by CRN’s Ancona-based technical department, complemented by Italian firm Nuvolari Lenard, who took care of the exterior concept and interior design. At 62m and with a beam of 11.5m, this yacht embodies CRN’s modern approach to displacement motoryachts. Classical lines have been replaced by the unmistakable all-Italian style of Nuvolari Lenard, revealing rakish and yet harmonious lines that seem to be shaped by the wind. The bow is vertical, not to follow the current trend, but to ensure maximum length in the water, thereby increasing speed and maximising the forward volumes, where the garage is located.
CRN’s technical department turned Nuvolari Lenard’s concept into reality by optimising technical spaces with no detriment to the interior layout. The aft owner’s stateroom opens up to the al fresco dining area, and - he upper deck, which has now become the owner’s deck, includes a forward panoramic lounge that can remain, at the discretion of the owner, private or open. The new vessel features five decks and includes the owner’s stateroom and five VIP cabins, hosting up to 12 guests. It will be equipped with two MTU 12V4000 M63 1,500kW @ 1,800rpm engines that will push it to a maximum speed of 16 knots. Two more vessels are currently under construction at CRN: 79m M/Y CRN 135 and 50m M/Y CRN 136 Superconero. The latest-born at CRN, 74M Cloud 9 – a skilful combination of functional exterior and interior spaces and sophisticated interiors – was presented as a world première at the Monaco Yacht Show 2017.
