79m superyacht Project 135 moves sheds at CRN
by Chris Jefferies
Ferretti Group has given an update on the construction of CRN Project 135. The 79 metre yacht was recently moved between sheds at the Italian yard, with the team shifting its 1,000 ton hull over a distance of 800 metres in two hours.
Designed in-house by the CRN Engineering team with exteriors by Studio Zuccon International and interior design by Studio Laura Sessa, CRN Project 135 will be the second-largest yacht built to date at the Ancona yard when launched next year.
As this image shows, the hull and superstructure are now largely complete, with the cut-out section in the aft of the yacht hinting at a side-loading superyacht garage.
The completed layout of the CRN 135 will accommodate 12 guests across six cabins, as well as up to 39 crew members. Ferretti Group is billing this as one of the most important and innovative launches in the 54-year history of CRN Yachts.
Precise details are few and far between at this stage, but the Italian company promises that the CRN 135 will feature “spectacular volumes, airy spaces, sleek design, soft lines, attention to detail and on board lighting design, all intentionally aiming to emphasise the visual contact with the sea.”
First announced in March 2014, the CRN 135 was originally conceived as a 77 metre yacht before being extended to its current length, making it the second-largest CRN yacht to date, behind the 80 metre Chopi Chopi. Power will come from a pair of Caterpillar diesel engines for a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.
