CRN 50m Superconero yacht in-build at Ancona yard
by Chris Jefferies
The Ancona yard, which is part of the Ferretti Group, is working on the luxury yacht with previous collaborators, Rome-based design studio Zuccon International Project. The naval engineering was developed by CRN Engineering in partnership with Zuccon and will result in a steel and aluminium displacement yacht with a nine metre beam that will allow for a total interior volume of just under 500 gross tonnes.
The 50m Superconero will include all the premium features CRN is famed for, such as a fold-out balcony, opening terrace and aft beach club. However, the highlight of the 50m Superconero and a true indicator of its naval engineering expertise, said CRN, will be the tender garage. For the first time this will turn a technical room into one single area to host guests, with a spacious, airy natural pool.
The Superconero belongs to a line of 50 metre semi-custom yachts developed by CRN and first announced in April 2015.
The full displacement, three-deck 50m Superconero is due to be delivered in 2017. It will have two Caterpillar C-32 diesel engines that generate a total output of 3,200hp. It will be able to accommodate 10 guests and have a range of 3,800nm at 11 knots, a cruising speed of 14 knots and top speed of 15 knots.
