In true CRN style, the new 74-metre superyacht Cloud 9 was launched over the past weekend as the Italian shipyard welcomed family and friends of the project along with international press to celebrate the birth of one of their largest yachts to date. Cloud 9 was commissioned by an experienced yacht owner and is expected to be ready for delivery in April this year.
Exterior designers Zuccon International Project and Winch Design collaborated on the design of Cloud 9, who designed the exterior guest areas and interior of the yacht. “It has been a great pleasure to work with Zuccon,” commented Andrew Winch of Winch Design. “I have always admired Mr Zuccon’s exterior designs and to partner with him and CRN for this project has been very exciting.”
For CRN, the project was just as special:“We are really thrilled to have been involved in the construction of this extraordinary yacht which was a new and exciting challenge for CRN,” commented Alberto Galassi, CRN’s Chairman and CEO of the Ferretti Group. “This incredible 74 metre vessel will reinforce CRN’s expertise and varied range in working with a completely new concept to fulfil an owner’s vision."
Burgess Technical Services served as owner’s representatives during the project and was responsible for developing the general arrangement with the owner and shipyard during the initial stage of the project.With a beam of 13.5 metres and five expansive decks including a sub deck, the yacht comfortably accommodates up to 16 guests (12 when chartering) in a master suite, VIP suite and six guest cabins, in addition to 22 crew members in 13 cabins plus berths for four staff in two cabins.
CRN is currently working on another three vessels that are under construction in Ancona: the 79-metreCRN 135, 50-metre CRNSuperconero, and the 62-metreCRN 137.
