CRN signs letter of intent for the construction of a new 77m superyacht
by Tom Isitt
Italian shipyard CRN, part of the Ferretti Group, has signed a letter of intent for the construction of a 77 metre superyacht, destined for the Middle-Eastern market.
The 77m superyacht, designed by Studio Zuccon International Project in collaboration with CRN Engineering, has interior design by the architect Laura Sessa. The yacht will be exclusively for private use, and will become the second-longest vessel built by the Ancona shipyard (the 80m Chopi Chopi is currently the largest yacht they have built to date).
The letter of intent marks the continuation of a busy period at the Ancona yard, where there are currently six CRNs in build: a CRN 131 designed by Zuccon International Project, CRN 132 designed by Omega Architects, CRN 133 designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, and a CRN 134 designed by Nuvolari & Lenard. And it was just in February of this year that CRN signed a letter of intent for two 44m new build superyachts.
Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman and CEO of CRN, says, 'I am very proud of the signing of this last letter of intent for a new 77 metre megayacht, another ambitious project for CRN, which allows us to continue to grow. With this in mind, the the 77m project is a new challenge in such a strategic market as that of the Middle East.'
