Preview of the new CRN Classic 52m superyacht
by Raphael Montigneaux
With echoes from the past and future, the new CRN Classic 52m series has a foot in the best of different design generations.
Inspired by the period dating back to the Seventies through to the mid-Eighties, we can recall the 47m Azzura or the 61m Il Vagabondo, the CRN Classic 52m proposes a squarish line designed by Studio Zuccon International Project and the in-house designers.
Today's solutions and technologies make her a fully contemporary yacht with the presence of a stern beach club, a master suite terrace, side tender garages, etc... An innovative multi-purpose side area hosts the main 8-metre tender and can be transformed into a lounge/dining area with a terrace on the sea.
Her interior layout accommodates 12 guests in five staterooms: a large master suite on the main deck, two double and two twin cabins plus two Pullmans on the lower deck.
On the technical side, the CRN Classic 52m is powered by twin Caterpillar C-32C engines giving a top speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14.5 knots.
