CRN Yachts have developed an explorer yacht capable of ensuring great functionality and ease of use while also boasting stylish exterior lines and spacious areas in direct contact with the sea. The historical Italian shipbuilder and brand, part of the Ferretti Group, specialising in the construction of fully-custom steel and aluminium pleasure vessels between 40 and 100 metres in length, unveiled it new project, an 86-metre Explorer Yacht designed by Harrison Eidsgaard, an international team of yacht designers and architects.
Conceived for an Owner used to enjoying long voyages with his family all over the world, including in remote locations, this project empowers the concept of ‘exploration’ through areas specifically designed to house water toys and tenders that will allow to discover the most exciting and scenic corners.
The interior layout and décor have been conceived to maximise onboard comfort and relaxation, thanks to magnificent panoramic views. It is not by chance that one of the key areas onboard is a spectacular terrace running along the entire Owner’s deck, recreating the atmosphere of an exclusive loft in New York and letting the family enjoy the utmost privacy and intimacy, especially during long-range cruising.
“Versatility, functionality, and elegance are the core features of our shipyard’s timeless yachts. Our close cooperation with leading international designers like Harrison Eidsgaard allows us to propose explorer yachts that have always been part of our DNA. Indeed, as early as in the 1980s CRN was a pioneer in the design and construction of an explorer yacht, the first one in international pleasure boating – the F100, designed by Gerhard Gilgenast in 1982. With Harrison Eisdgaard, we now want to go back to those values that have led us to be what we are today. We are really excited about this new cooperation, which has resulted in a very original concept”, said CRN’s Chief Commercial Officer, Stefano De Vivo.
CRN Yachts at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
The Ferretti Group’s historical shipyard – a finalist, with Cloud 9, at the prestigious International Superyacht Society Design Awards – took part in the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show to strengthen its presence on the American market. The ‘art yachting’ formula, which has already created very successful yachts boasting an original and strong personality, is now ready to conquer leading positions on the important American market.
Cloud 9 – a flawless combination of functional exterior and interior spaces, huge volumes and sophisticated design – is one of the finalists of the prestigious International Superyacht Society Design Awards in the ‘Best Power’ over 65 m category. The awarding ceremony will be held just during the International Boat Show.
CRN’s second-largest build, the 74m Cloud 9 is now living her new life as a charter yacht, having been home to her owner and his family until this year’s Monaco Yacht Show.
