CRN-133-MY-61m-LAUNCH-03_03_14CRN has launched a 61 metre (200ft) yacht, named CRN, in a private ceremony in Ancona. The naval architecture has been designed by Francesco Paszkowski in close collaboration with the CRN technical department and the CRN Design Department.

After the launch, the yacht will remain in the shipyard until the end of April. In the coming months, technical tests will be carried out and the final details of the interior fittings will be put in place, before the yacht is delivered to the owner.

Lamberto Tacoli, chairman and CEO of CRN, comments: “The ‘christening’ of a new yacht is always an exciting milestone for the owner and the entire company. Particularly, we take pride in this launch because it is the eighth megayacht in the 60 metre segment of in the last ten years. Each launch reflects the work done over many years and the beginning of new prospects for the future. CRN, now more than ever, has confirmed itself amongst the leading companies that build pleasure ships, taking pride in representing Made in Italy in the world”.

CRN is enjoying a prosperous period and at the moment another five vessels of the CRN brand are being built; three steel and aluminium superyachts – CRN 131 74 m (designed by Zuccon International Project), CRN 132 73 m (designed by Omega Architects) 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’ superyacht Mythos made of aluminium.

Additionally, two letters of intent have been recently signed for the construction of two 44 metre “SuperConero” superyachts, inspired by the historic line of the seventies, and another letter of intent for a 68 metre superyacht –  the biggest ever realised for the Asian market.
