The third hull of the new CRN 43 composite line, Rubeccan, is a displacement-design maxi-yacht that can easily accommodate 10 passengers and 9 crewmembers. Built as a joint effort involving the CRN technical staff and the Zuccon International Project Firm, which handled the external layout, the interior furnishings and decorative scheme of this 43-metre vessel. Rubeccan features a distinctive personality, having been masterfully studied by the design office to meet the needs of the yacht’s owner, who already has another vessel, a 35-metre yacht, built by the shipyard.
Discrete, natural colours characterise the stylistic choices, together with the use of exquisite materials, including the textiles, all manufactured by the renowned Italian label Loro Piana. The curtains, the carpeting, the upholstery are all crafted from noble fibres to ensure maximum resistance, as well as the utmost in comfort, lightness and softness. As is true with all the CRN 43 hulls, light is the key element in the ship’s architecture, thanks not only to the abundance of generously sized windows, but also the two types of fine woods used. The warm hues of walnut, in a typically naval style, adorn the furniture and panelling in the lower portion of the vessel, while lighter-hued, more luminous stripped oak was chosen for the upper portion of the structural facings in the two lounges.
Rubeccan reprises a number of the features favoured by owners of other CRN ships. The Technogym workout room and sauna in the forward portion of the lower deck combine to form a fitness and wellness area tied directly to the sea, thanks to a beach platform created by lowering the aft hatch nearly flush with the water. The balcony of the owner’s suite, another must feature, is furnished with comfortable armchairs and a coffee table, making it an ideal site for exclusive breakfasts by the sea.
The interior furnishings, a combination of high-fashion designer materials and artfully crafted decors, make for an ambience of refined, modern taste.
Designed by the CRN staff and built by mater artisans as a single piece, the relaxation area on the main deck features a sofa with a uniquely original form. The traditional “L” module is wed to a chaise lounge that offers seating space to the rear, taking advantage of the area found in front of the bookshelf of the central wall. A single decorative arrangement offers various points of view for taking in the same setting, guaranteeing the best possible use of the space.
The refined fabrics of Loro Piana, in shades of sand and amber, line the leather base of this multifaceted sofa. In addition to a beautiful dining room, the main deck holds a professionally outfitted kitchen and the owner’s suite, as well as a roomy study.
Guests are housed in four cabins with double beds on the lower deck, whose forward portion holds the crew’s quarters.
The engine room is found in the aft portion of the lower deck, where its two Caterpillar C32-C engines power the ship at a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and at a cruising speed of 13 knots. The navigating comfort and pleasure offered by these performance levels is further enhanced by the installation of 7 Mitsubishi ARG MSM-5000 stabilisers. The captain’s cabin, located on the upper deck, behind the wheelhouse, is equipped with the most advanced onboard instrumentation available.
The upper deck is reached by taking the indoor stairway from the lobby or the outdoor stairs that connect the two well areas. The panoramic lounge on the upper deck has a comfortable relaxation zone furnished with sofas designed in a modern style featuring elegant right angles. The entire setting is bounded by elegant Venetian blinds made of wood and able to filter the intensity of the light, creating intimately charming effects in combination with pleasurable shadows. This conversation zone also comes with a mobile bar topped off by a glass sculpture created by a master craftsman on the Island of Murano.
The desire for relaxation and comfort is also met on the sundeck, equipped in its forward portion with a Jacuzzi tub surrounded by luxurious cushions and semicircular sofas, while the aft portion features lounge chairs for taking the sun, a dining table, a barbecue and a bar covered by an awning.
Rubeccan's main aft deck features a beautiful lounging area, with a deep built-in sofa set into the aft bulwark, surrounded by comfortable free standing deck furniture. With the third hull of the new CRN 43 composite line, CRN created once again a masterpiece.
