CRN shipyard, a brand of the Italian Ferretti Group, has signed two Letter of Intent (LOI) for the construction of two 44-metre (144ft) superyachts destined for the Middle-Eastern and European markets, respectively. These agreements come just weeks after the yard signed an LOI for a 68–metre (223ft) for a Chinese client.
These two vessels are based on the project SuperConero, the historic line of the seventies, which CNR presented for the first time at the Monaco Yacht Show 2013.
Lamberto Tacoli, chairman and CEO of CRN, comments: “I am happy about the signing of these two Letters of Intent for the 44 metres SuperConero Line; this confirms that we have made the right choices in a very important segment of market for CRN. The shipyard is working hard to plan and produce ‘unique products’ which will make these jewels loved and utilized by their owners. The European and Middle-Eastern Nationality of Prospects means continuity in historically strategic markets for CRN. For this reason we will be at the Dubai International Boat Show again in March.”
SuperConero is a 44 metre displacement superyacht with bulbous steel made from steel and aluminium, and 8.60 wide within 500 GT. The project design has been developed by CRN Engineering and designed by Zuccon International Project.
These yachts feature CRN’s unique design solution for the layout and interiors, including a balcony that can be enjoyed while sailing, an open terrace overlooking the sea than can be enjoyed when moored offshore, and a floodable garage for the tender, to name a few. The latest innovation from CRN is the garage introduced for the first time on board the 60 metres megayacht M/Y J’Ade. The garage transforms a technical space into a living area for the first time, integrated with a beach, which creates an space at the waterline. The garage can also hold a tender with a capacity of 10 people.
SuperConero 44 also feature large internal volumes and a predominant use of glass for the large floor-to-ceiling windows giving a constant view of the sea.
The Ancona shipyard is currently building six vessels of the CRN brand, including four steel and aluminium vessels – CRN 131 74 m (designed by Zuccon International Project), CRN 132 73 m (designed by Omega Architects), CRN 133 60 m (designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design) and CRN 134 55 m (designed by Nuvolari & Lenard) – together with another maxiyacht of the Ferretti Custom Line, the CL 124’, and a Riva 122’ Mythos made of aluminium.
