CCN 50 M

by CCN – Cerri Cantieri Navali with Studio Bacigalupo and Studio Vafiadis

At the end of last year, CCN Cerri Cantieri Navali, part of the Gavio Group for some time now, decided to launch its latest market offering – one that represents an ambitious strategic operation. Appropriately named “Fuoriserie” (custom built), this is a new product line for the creation of fully custom yachts, designed and built exclusively for the most demanding clientele. At the beginning of this year, the Italian shipyard announced that the first two orders had been received in quick succession for two motor yachts, both from the Fuoriserie line but with marked differences between the two. In early January, the contract was signed for the construction of a 40 m- Floating Life design for an expedition yacht with a length of 40 metres / 131 feet, a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. This was quickly followed in February by the signature of the second contract for the construction of a new fully custom sport yacht with a length of 50 metres / 164 feet and an aluminium alloy hull and superstructure. Diego Michele Deprati, CEO of CCN – Cerri Cantieri Navali, enthusiastically commented on these two events which bear witness to the shipyard’s positive commercial direction: “It really is a great moment for CCN. We began 2016 with the announcement of a major order, and so soon afterwards this additional new achievement in the area of high-performance custom vessels confirms that we are on the right path. Fuoriserie, the fully custom line, really highlights the characteristics and the value of our shipyard, which makes flexibility, uniqueness and build quality its real strengths.” With the benefit of a strong managerial group and a wealth of experience acquired in leading Italian shipyards, as well as a highly specialised workforce and carefully selected technical personnel, the dynamic Italian shipyard is taking on the demanding construction of a sizeable mega yacht for the first time with this new line.

Entirely based on naval architecture devised and developed by the well-established Studio Bacigalupo, the CCN Fuoriserie 50 M has a semi-planing hull to afford both reliable seakeeping and high performance with the power contributed by three 16V engines and utilised by the three corresponding hydrojet units. The dynamic, sporty lines sketched out in a decisive, modern style enclose extremely generous volumes, making it possible to arrange both the huge outdoor spaces and the expansive interiors in a rational, functional way. The luxurious interiors on the new CCN Fuoriserie 50 M will have an exclusive interior design by the famous Studio Vafiadis, featuring elegant fittings in a contemporary style with a simple, clean flavour to create a setting with a timeless, elegant, refined atmosphere. In terms of materials and colours, light-coloured woods predominate throughout, occasionally paired with wood features in a contrasting dark shade or combined with selected fabrics and leather in calm colour tones, frequently intercut with thin metal trim that gleams with light to create a very refined effect. The private accommodation on the 50 M has been designed to accommodate up to 12 passengers in one master stateroom, two VIP staterooms and two guest staterooms, as well as up to 12 crew in one captain’s cabin, one engineer’s cabin and four crew cabins. The new vessel has a layout across three decks, the upper deck, the main deck and the lower deck. Outside on the upper deck, there will be two areas for relaxation and open air living: a forward area featuring a sunbathing section laid out with sun pads and a lounge section with a table and chairs, and an aft area featuring a sunbathing section with sun pads and a swimming pool, and a lounge section protected by a hard top, with chairs, small tables and a bar.

Inside on the upper deck, there will be both a panoramic salon with sofas and a view on three sides, which is also intended for use as a home cinema, and the wheelhouse with the instrument panel and three pilot’s chairs. Outside on the main deck there will be an area for relaxation and open air living, featuring a sunbathing space with sun pads and an al fresco dining section protected by the overhanging deck above, with chairs, small tables and a bar. Inside, the main deck will feature a light-filled salon with a living area laid out with sofas and armchairs and a dining area with a table and chairs. The pantry and the lobby with a day head will be located amidships, while the full-beam owner’s suite will occupy a forward position, comprising the master stateroom, his and hers walk-in wardrobes and his and hers bathrooms. The guest area will be positioned on the lower deck, and, in addition to a fully equipped gym with a shower and hammam, it will feature one full-beam VIP stateroom and another VIP stateroom, one guest stateroom with a double bed plus a foldout berth, and one guest stateroom with twin beds plus a foldout berth. The crew quarters will be located amidships including the galley, the crew lounge, two officer’s cabins and four crew cabins, while the tender garage and the engine room will occupy an aft position. A beach house with sun beds, a bar and a day head will be located in the stern.
