The CRN shipyard takes on a brand-new, extra-large challenge: vessel number 129, built of aluminium and steel, and measuring 80 metres - making it the largest yacht ever built in Ancona. The CRN 129 represents another example of the successful working relationship between the CRN technical staff, who handled the naval architecture, and the firm Studio Zuccon International Project, who designed the external layout. At the request of the owner, the interior will be designed by Laura Sessa Romboli.
“This project represents both an amalgamation and a further development of the distinctive characteristics and the innovative soul of the most recent superyacht to be turned out under the CRN name,” declares Lamberto Tacoli, President of the shipyard in the Marches Region. “Large dimensions, roomy spaces, sinuous forms and soft design lines, plus painstaking attention to detail and onboard wellbeing, along with an artful interplay of lights and, last but not least, a direct connection to the sea.”
This 80 metre CRN megayacht has been custom designed to meet the precise requests of her owner. On the main deck, the yacht features 6 guest suites with balconies and terraces over the water, while the owner has a completely private deck.
The owner and his family can enter this private deck by using the elevator or by landing with a helicopter, which can land on the aft section of the owner’s deck. Forward on the owner’s deck is a bedroom, a large bathroom, a beauty shop and two large walk-in closets. After crossing the lobby and continuing in the direction of the stern, we come across a TV room and a cabin for the staff. Outside, towards the bow, is a whirlpool, while the aft deck is designed for rest and relaxation, furnished with comfortable sofas and armchairs.
The crew of this superyacht totals 30, including the Captain, while 7 members of the owner’s personal staff are housed in 4 cabins found on the main deck.
The owner’s passion for wine has transformed the below-decks area, reached from the lower deck, into a fully fledged wine-tasting and cellar facility, holding up top 1200 bottles, while the rest of the space below-decks is taken up by a storage facility, the laundry and a number of utility spaces.
Aft on the lower deck is a beach club, measuring over 100 m2, formed by a hatch which folds out to become a spacious beach platform. The relaxation area continues inside, with a gym and a spa that includes a sauna, a fully-fledged Hammam and a massage area.
Superyacht no. 129 is powered by two Caterpillar 3516B-C engines that push the vessel at a cruising speed of 15 knots and a top speed of 16.
