CRN 62 M

by CRN with Nuvolari Lenard

Activity continues at an unrelenting pace at the

CRN shipyard, the historic Italian brand part of

the Ferretti Group, specialising in fully custom steel

and aluminium leisure vessels builds in an extensive range of sizes from 40 to over 100 metres. For example, in addition to the 74-metre CRN hull number 131, recently completed and about to be launched, which will be presented at the next Monaco Yacht Show in September after delivery and her maiden voyage, another three vessels are currently under construction

at the shipyard’s production facility in Ancona. In more detail, these are the 79-metre CRN hull number 135,

the 50-metre CRN Superconero hull number 136 and finally the 62-metre CRN hull number 137.

For the latter vessel, CRN recently unveiled a preview of some preliminary information and the first CGI images of the exteriors. With a length overall of 62 metres / 203 feet and a maximum beam of 11.5 metres / 38 feet, the Italian shipyard’s new motor yacht is being built in high-strength steel for the hull and light aluminium

alloy for the superstructure. The vessel also has a displacement hull with a high-efficiency keel. Together with the pair of MTU 12V 4000 series M63 powerplants due to be installed in the engine room, each with maximum power of 1,500 kW supplied at 1,800 rpm, these will give the yacht a top speed of over 16 knots. Based on an optimised, modern naval platform developed entirely in-house by the CRN Technical

Office, which handled both the naval architecture and the marine engineering, the design for the new

62-metre motor yacht is the work of Nuvolari Lenard who, in addition to devising the overall concept design for the vessel, also created both the exterior and the interior design. The resulting exclusive, elegant style makes this prestigious motor yacht the latest example of CRN’s longstanding innovative approach to the complex subject of the contemporary motor yacht and, from a first look at the yacht’s visual appearance alone, it is certainly also the latest in a long line of successful responses to the demands of the global market. However, in the historic tradition of CRN, aesthetics are never purely an end in themselves, and again in the case of the CRN 62 metres, the beauty of the yacht’s lines and her harmony of form are accompanied by intelligent choices based on functional foundations. One example is the design of the bow, which is vertical – not in some simplistic obeisance to current trends but rather to fulfil specific technical requirements – because a vertical bow means a greater hull length at the water line, immediately leading to an increase in speed and greater course stability.

Moreover, with this bow shape, the available volume

in the forward sections of the hull also increases, and thanks to this abundant extra space, a tender garage can be obtained that is considerably larger than those present on board vessels in the same size class but with a raked bow.

In more general terms, the CRN Technical Office has carefully studied all the technical areas on the motor yacht, arranging them to avoid any sacrifices as far as concerns the layout of the living spaces across the five decks, both inside and out – a layout skilfully designed to accommodate 12 passengers in one master stateroom and five guest staterooms. The Owner’s accommodation occupies the entire upper deck of the motor yacht, forming a real private owner’s deck with the master stateroom to aft and a day area and living area forward, both located in ideal positions for enjoying a panoramic view in complete privacy.

One further area offers a similarly panoramic view of the surrounding environment: to aft on the bridge deck of the new CRN 62 metres a comfortable wheelhouse opens onto the gym, but most importantly – above all, you might say, since it is at the highest point on the motor yacht – the sun deck offers a proper sunbathing terrace with sun pads, as well as a custom swimming pool with hydromassage function.
