CRN 79m superyacht Project 135 delivered
by Miranda Blazeby
CRN has delivered the fully custom steel and aluminium 79 metre superyacht known as 135 to its owner.
The yacht has now left the superyacht yard and is preparing for her maiden voyage. The yacht will then premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
It comes after the yard launched the five-decked yacht at a ceremony attended by more than 1,000 people in March.
Speaking at the ceremony, Ferretti Group chief executive Alberto Galassi said: "Both the exterior and the interiors – and in general the impeccable design of the whole ship – are a glowing testament to the supreme skill and construction excellence that are the hallmark of our historic yard in Ancona."
Designed in-house by the CRN Engineering team with exteriors by Studio Zuccon International and interior design by Studio Laura Sessa, Project 135 is the second-largest yacht built by CRN to date, behind the 80 metre Chopi Chopi.
Accommodation is for a total of 12 guests in five VIP cabins and a master suite. The yacht also has enough crew accommodation for 39 staff.
CRN 135 features “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", according to the yard.
First announced in March 2014, the CRN 135 was originally conceived as a 77 metre yacht before being extended to its current length. Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar diesel engines for a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.
As well as CRN Project 135, the Ancona shipyard has three fully custom yachts under construction. These are the 62 metre CRN 137, due for delivery this summer, the 62 metre CRN 138 and the 70 metre CRN 139.
