62m CRN Project C138 launched and named Rio

16 January 2022

The 62 metre CRN motor yacht Rio, formerly known as Project C138, has been launched in a private ceremony held at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona, Italy.

The launch follows an announcement on Friday that the yacht had been sold by Alex Heyes and David Westwood at TWW Yachts and officially named Rio.

Rio was designed by CRN in partnership with Omega Architects and is the first collaboration between the pair since the 73 metre Yalla in 2014. Her exterior has been described as "supremely sporty" and features a near-vertical bow.

With four decks and an 11.2 metre beam, Rio can accommodate up to 12 guests across six cabins, including an owner's suite which resides on the owner's deck that also doubles as a 'social zone'. The generous living and dining areas, together with the owner's suite and cabins, will reflect an "enlightened contemporary living concept," the yard said.

The standout interior feature however is the "palatial" main saloon, which the yard described as a "single eye-catching space encapsulating all the elements of style that define the yacht's design."

Meanwhile, the lower deck is set up as a wellness retreat, housing a beach club complete with a Hammam, massage room, chromotherapy shower and fitness area.

In a statement, the shipyard said that the new custom yacht “skilfully combines the infinitely large — huge size and impressive performances — and the infinitely small, in the form of precious, functional details.”

CRN has another two fully custom yachts under construction; the 72 metre CRN 139 and 60 metre CRN 141.
