On 9th April another new vessel was launched by the CRN shipyard, which baptised the fourth maxi-yacht of the CRN 43 composite line during a private ceremony for the owner and his guests. Sofico is a caramel-coloured yacht with a length of 43 metres and a beam of 8.6, capable of navigating the oceans in complete comfort and safety, at a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots. Sofico accommodates 10 passengers and 9 crewmembers.
The launching ceremony, an intimate but exciting affair, featured the traditional breaking of the bottle, moments before the ship slid into the water. The thrill was heightened by the notes of the celebrated aria from “Turandot”, as well as the hearty applause of those present.
Designed in a joint effort by the technical staff of CRN and the Zuccon International Project Firm, the vessel comes with four decks and a bulbous hull, having been built entirely at the Ancona shipyard: from the creation of the moulds and the subsequent lamination of the hull, all the way to the decorative work and the finishing touches on the décor. The entire production process took place under the direct control of CRN, guaranteeing the quality and reliability for which the shipyard is famous.
Sofico has an elegant, linear Art Déco interior design, that features parquet flooring with ample inlays of silk carpeting. Throughout the vessel, two varieties of precious woods, both with a polished finish, are mixed and matched: canaletto walnut is used in all the day area’s, while light-hued natural cherry wood was chosen for the cabins.
The functional and elegant lounge on the main deck features a conversation zone with refined furniture upholstered in striped silk velvet by Fendi, as well as comfortable armchairs. The dining room holds a large ebony table finished in gold leaf, where guests to dine in full comfort and relaxation. Completing the setting is a large bookcase lined with crocodile skin and a decorative panel done in the tradition of the finest Futurist art.
Sofico reprises some of the features most admired by CRN shipowners everywhere, such as the Technogym workout room and the sauna in the stern portion of the lower deck, plus a fitness and wellness area connected directly to the sea which, thanks to a stern hatch, can be transformed into a beach platform which lowers itself practically flush with the water. The classic balcony of the owner’s suite is outfitted with comfortable armchairs and a coffee table, making it an ideal site for an exclusive breakfast at sea, even when the ship is underway.
