Italian shipyard CRN has teamed up with British studio Harrison Eidsgaard to reveal a new 86-metre concept. Conceived for an experienced owner with a passion for travelling the world on extensive voyages with family, several features including a forward davit capable of launching a multitude of tenders and toys up to 50 tons ensure that owners and guests can truly explore some of the world’s most secluded destinations in both comfort and style.
Explaining the design, CRN’s Chief Commercial Officer Stefano De Vivo says: “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 Eidsgaard, 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.”
Inside, generous interior spaces combined with extensive glass surfaces offer panoramic views and a connection with the outdoors regardless of the weather. One of her stand out features includes a large terrace running along the owner’s deck.
“We 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, so as to meet the future owners’ passion and love. Unprecedented, state-of-the-art solutions like the ones found onboard this yacht are the result of the long-standing experience and expertise of a historical shipyard like CRN”, added the Eidsgaard team.
