CRN presents new 50m superyacht design projects


Italian shipyard CRN has revealed three new superyacht projects, all measuring 50 metres in length; Teseo, SuperConero and Dislopen Special Edition. All of the projects have been developed in cooperation with Zuccon International Project.

Teseo is a steel and aluminium, bulb keel displacement yacht falling within the 500 GRT class. She accommodates guests over five cabin layout, including one master stateroom and four VIP cabins. A crew of seven are also accommodated for. Her most distinctive feature is her flexibility in terms of the guest areas, which can be modified and customised as her owner and guests desire.

A total of three different layout configurations are possible. In the first layout the beach club is aft, and is connected to an open living area with collapsible terraces in the two bulwarks. The lower deck includes four guest cabins located amidships, besides the separate crew quarters. On the main deck, the aft area is used to store the water toys and the tender and can then be turned into a comfortable day area when the toys and tender are at sea. The full-beam master stateroom can be found forward. The upper deck includes wide sunbathing areas towards the bow and a panoramic living area, also leaving room for a large aft outdoor terrace.

The second configuration has been conceived to ensure a large storage and diving area aft, with water toys and the tender stored aft on the main deck: once they have been launched, this area can be fitted and enjoyed as a day area. The indoor living area has been conceived to be a true ‘open air’ terrace overlooking the sea, creating one single space with the cockpit. This deck also hosts two guest cabins, while the master stateroom and the other two guest cabins can be found on the lower deck.

The third possible layout features a large storage and diving area aft on the lower deck, which also includes two guest cabins and the galley. On the main deck, water toys and the tender are stored aft: once they have been launched, this area can be fitted and enjoyed as a day area. In this case too, the indoor living area has been designed to be an ‘open air’ terrace overlooking the sea, creating one single space with the cockpit. On this deck are also the dining room and two guest cabins. The upper deck features a panoramic al fresco dining area, a large aft outdoor terrace, and the master stateroom towards the bow.

In all three layouts, the pilot house and the captain’s cabin are located on the sundeck. The crew quarters are on the lower deck, separate from the guest area.

The Dislopen Special Edition accommodates up to ten guests in total who are hosted over a master stateroom and four VIP cabins. A crew of 9 are also accommodated for on board, and she features a balcony, beach club and float-in garage.

SuperConero is a steel and aluminium, bulb keel displacement vessel which also falls within the 500 GRT class. She features a special balcony that can be enjoyed even when cruising; a terrace on the sea, aft beach club; and a float-in garage for the tender, which results in one single, open area connected to the beach club, creating a wide lounge area by the sea.

All three new projects come with two C32 Caterpillar engines allowing them to reach a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots, ensuring a maximum range of 3800 nautical miles at 11 knots.

Giovanni Zucco states, “The Dislopen, the Expedition and the SuperConero epitomise CRN’s ability to offer very diverse products. These are indeed three very distinctive yachts, each with her personal history and identity, that prove how great flexibility can be obtained in terms of style, shapes, and functions while maintaining unchanged a yacht’s main technical and structural features. This type of research deepens its roots in the design languages that have made the history of vessels and, at the same time, leads to the creation of stylistic features that are bound to remain timeless.”

CRN's Chairman and CEO, Lamberto Tacoli also comments on the new projects, stating, “We have been cooperating with Paola and Gianni Zuccon and Zuccon International Project for approximately 20 years. These new projects once more bear witness to our shared focus on research and innovation, our objective being to propose ever-innovative products capable of meeting the needs of increasingly global markets and the requirements of every single Owner. The SuperConero, the Expedition, and the Dislopen have a similar DNA, but also very different features and peculiarities. Indeed, they are the result of a long and painstaking market analysis. We are deeply convinced that these new projects will confirm CRN's great versatility.”
