Insight: Design details of CRN’s new 138 superyacht

Written by

For the past year, the 62-metre CRN 138 megayacht, developed by CRN Technical Office alongside Omega Architects and interior designers Pulina Exclusive Interiors, has been a mastermind work-in-progress at the Italian shipyard’s Ancona facility. After catching the first glimpse of her elegant yet sporty lines last summer, it was clear hull number 138 would cement CRN’s reputation as a strong and ever-evolving builder. 

Now on the home run to a highly-anticipated 2021 launch, CRN has shared fresh insight into the work on board. CRN 138 yacht exterior renderingPhoto: CRN YachtsThe owner’s deck

Created for an owner who has a vocation for onboard living among family and friends, well-appointed social spaces allow up to 14 guests to mingle comfortably while also being able to savour some alone time on their own private deck. Spread across 140-square-metres, the layout includes a sky lounge that can be used as a cinema, theatre, or private study. 

At the bow, the master suite boasts 180-degree windows and a double bathroom with a grand tub with an outdoor view. With the owner’s privacy assured at all times, the nearby outdoor lounge area can accommodate a spa-pool zone or a dining environment with tatami table - all secluded from view.

On the main deck, the comfort and grandeur of the lounge are suited to both dining and relaxing. Surrounded by full-height windows and with a mirrored surface at the bow, the interior space is both illuminated and amplified – an attribute that adds to the yacht’s sophisticated design. Further down, the lower deck is dedicated to wellbeing as guests are invited into the living area that is integrated with the beach club. It is a true oasis of regeneration complete with hammam, massage room, chromotherapy shower and gym. 

In terms of accommodation, two guests can be treated to the 70-square-metre main-deck VIP cabin, while remaining guests will enjoy another VIP room on the lower-deck and an additional four staterooms on the lower deck.

Said to be an advanced concept in contemporary living, the interior layout is focused on combining comfort and elegance. Exquisite woods, such as white lacquered and brushed pine and oak, are complemented by Crema d’Orcia and Sahara Noir marbles to give a sophisticated juxtaposition throughout. 

Thanks to the yacht’s wide windows, the colour palette of white tones, warm natural hues and dark accents shimmer in the light. CRN 138 yacht exterior renderingCRN 138 yacht interior renderingPhoto: CRN YachtsCRN 138 yacht interior renderingPhoto: CRN YachtsSporty personality

The sportiness expressed in the flowing lines of the hull and the near-vertical bow is what Stefano de Vivo, Chief Commercial Officer Ferretti Group and CRN Executive Board member, describes as “giving new life to the CRN design”. The custom design process at the yard works in a way that ensures “there is not one yacht that looks the same as the other”. “We start with a blank sheet and make sure the client’s talent, vision and inspiration are transformed into an initial design. Then, over time, it evolves as it is reworked and refined by our in-house teams,” he adds.CRN 138 yacht exterior renderingPhoto: CRN YachtsCRN 138 yacht exterior renderingPhoto: CRN YachtsCRN 138 yacht exterior renderingPhoto: CRN YachtsTo find out more about the expertise behind CRN custom design, contact the yard directly via the information below.
