CRN goes semi-custom with three 50m yachts
by Risa Merl
The new concepts are all 50 metre LOA and include the expedition-style yacht Teseo, Superconero and Dislopen Special Edition.
With its move into the semi-custom market, the fully custom yacht builder aims to meet, “the needs of an ever-evolving and increasingly diversified market.” CRN joins the growing flock of builders branching out to gain a greater share of the market or meet the needs of its current clientele. Renown custom builder Blohm+Voss introduced its first semi-custom BV80 last year, while on the other end of the spectrum, semi-custom builder Amels is now planning to build fully custom yachts, and Benetti is building a custom 63 metre on spec.
“These new projects once more bear witness to our focus on research and innovation, our objective being to propose ever-innovative products capable of meeting the needs of increasingly global markets and the requirements of every single owner,” says CRN’s Chairman and CEO, Mr Lamberto Tacoli. “The SuperConero, the Expedition Teseo and the Dislopen have a similar DNA, but also very different features. Indeed, they are the result of a long and painstaking market analysis. We are deeply convinced that these new projects will confirm CRN’s great versatility”.
The 50 metre Expedition Teseo is an explorer style yacht designed for go-anywhere navigation and ideal for the owner seeking low fuel burn and economical cruising. To be built in steel and aluminium, she’s a displacement yacht with a bulb keel and falls within 500 GRT.
Beyond her explorer yacht lines, the defining feature of the Teseo is flexibility. There are three different layout options, and multiple area of the yachts can be modified depending on an owner’s needs.
CRN also introduces it new 50 metre Superconero, inspired by the historic Super Conero yacht of the 1960s. This full-displacement motor yacht will have many design features familiar to CRNs, such as balconies that the builder says can be enjoyed while underway, a float-in tender garage and an ample beach club.
CRN currently has a 46-metre SuperConero on its order books.
The third new superyacht concept from CRN is the 50 metre Dislopen, which puts a premium on outdoor spaces. Like the SuperConero, she will have balcony, beach club and float-in tender garage. The Dislopen will also boast luxe accommodations, welcoming up to 10 on board overnight in an owner’s stateroom and four VIP cabins, and she’ll host nine crew members.
Each of the new concepts will built to RINA and MCA standards and will be offered with twin Caterpillar C32 engines, with a top speed of 15 knots, a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum range of 3,8000 nautical miles at 11 knots.
