16 May 2022• Written by Holly Overton

The 62 metre CRN motor yacht Rio, formerly known as Project C138, has been delivered to her new owner following successful sea trials in the Adriatic Sea. 

According to CRN, the sea trials confirmed the yacht's "standards of excellence, design, build quality and elevated levels of performance and comfort."

The sale of Rio was completed by Alex Heyes and David Westwood at TWW Yachts

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. The yacht is a fully-custom build with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, a "supremely sporty" exterior and 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. For propulsion, Rio is fitted with twin Caterpillar 3512C engines delivering a top speed of 15 knots with a cruising speed of 12 knots.

The sale of Rio was completed by Alex Heyes and David Westwood at TWW Yachts and announced on the same day as her launch in January 2022. She will spend the summer in the Mediterranean where she will be available for charter with TWW Yachts before making her grand debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

Four more fully custom yachts are currently under construction at the CRN shipyard: the 72 metre CRN 139, 60 metre CRN 141, 52 metre CRN 142 and the 67 metre CRN 143.
