CRN's custom "sweet spot"

Stefano de Vivo, CCO of Ferretti Group, outlines CRN's approach to the custom conundrum…

Jack Hogan from SuperyachtNews speaks to Stefano de Vivo, Chief Commercial Officer of Ferretti Group, aboard the M/Y Rio at MYS2022. Touching on CRN's size "sweet spot", De Vivo speaks about incorporating concepts from larger yachts in the build of 62m Rio

The pair discuss the threat of a shortage of supplies and an increase in the pricing of materials moving forward. De Vivo gives insight into how Ferretti Group was able to pull off the delivery of 52m Ciao in 26 months in the middle of the pandemic. He discusses the economically powerful position that he believes gives Ferretti Group the upper hand and a vantage point to observe the issues yacht manufacturers deal with. 

De Vivo speaks about the greenwashing effect equating hybrid propulsion systems to lowered emissions generates. He describes Ferretti Group’s smaller but important measures to implement sustainable solutions. De Vivo points out the need to provide infrastructure to allow for the use of hydrogen as a propulsion system. Please see the full interview below, or click here for the link.
