CRN is a bespoke shipbuilder that specialises in designing and building fully custom aluminium or steel/aluminium yachts of up to 95 metres.
Founded in 1963 in Ancona, Italy, the yard has always created yachts of peerless beauty featuring cutting-edge solutions that set the standard for functional innovation, representing Italian manufacturing at its very best. With well over half a century of success behind it, CRN’s is a compelling story of remarkable ideas, inspiring challenges and iconic achievements that have made it the outstanding brand it remains today. Every yacht is unique – an individual work of art first and foremost, before being part of the CRN fleet.
CRN proudly creates megayachts conceived by the owner’s talent and imagination to realise exclusive works of unmistakable style. It is the idea behind each yacht that makes her as special and unique as her owner. From a blank sheet, listening to and shaping the client’s desires, CRN develops innovative concept designs that transform the owner’s vision into a breathtaking custom yacht through a winning blend of passion and expertise, flexibility and creativity, dependability and total commitment.
The bespoke megayacht concept is infused with new meaning, embracing and reflecting the client’s wishes and designs in a genuinely creative process. Every aspect of every yacht is crafted inch by inch, with an immaculate eye for beauty and the sublime, taking care of the subtlest details. The whole CRN team collaborates closely with a select band of world-class architects and designers together with the client’s personal team. Styles, colours, materials – in short, everything – can be personalised and made to measure. CRN assures the owner this freedom of expression, empowering them to become the true author of their own masterpiece.
Each CRN yacht is the fruit of elite R&D, leading-edge technology and masterly construction skill. And the results are there for all to see, in the fine quality and excellent amenity, the optimum efficiency and supreme stylistic effect, all engineered to perfection. Each new yacht is a challenge to dream up fresh solutions, to anticipate trends, to devise new designs. CRN is a pioneer of a panoply of functional solutions and aesthetic innovations – instant classics that continue to raise the bar throughout the yachting world.
CRN’s many assets include an impressive production yard in Ancona spanning 80,000+ sqm, one of the largest in Europe. The multipurpose private marina vaunts 14 moorings for 24- to 100-metre yachts and dedicated state-of-the-art sheds with the latest-generation equipment for construction and refit projects alike. Having the right tools is a key driver in a relentless pursuit of excellence.
But the heartbeat of the yard is its people. A team of specialist engineers, architects and technicians conceives top-performing hulls and naval platforms with superlative design solutions. Our project architect group works with the world-class architects and designers who helm the yachts’ functional and aesthetic design.
With their combined insight and problem-solving flair, these technical experts and specialist craftspeople are always primed to rise to the challenges laid down by exacting clients. It is this know-how, this professionalism, this passion to excel, harnessed to profound design experience, advanced shipbuilding techniques and a constant quest for the most ingenious materials, that really makes the difference for an end build of exquisite quality.
The CRN fleet currently boasts more than 200 vessels in the water, including military and commercial ships as well as luxury yachts. A global beacon of excellence in Italian shipbuilding, CRN proudly creates yachts conceived by the owner’s vision through the expertise of its own hands.
