50m CRN superyacht Latona delivered
by Chris Jefferies
Italian yacht builder CRN has delivered the 50 metre Latona. The private yacht was built under the codename Project Superconero and launched in February 2018. The motor yacht Latona has now left the shipyard and is cruising the Mediterranean. She will make her world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show.
The naval engineering, design and interiors were developed by the CRN Engineering team working in partnership with Zuccon International Project. This steel and aluminium displacement yacht features an 8.6 metre beam and a total interior volume of just under 500 gross tonnes.
“Every launch is a reason for great pride for the shipyard,” said CEO Alberto Galassi. “This complex, magnificent, 50 metre construction realises the desire of a selective and resolute owner, who has turned to the expertise and the ability of CRN to build his personal project, turning his vision into a magnificent vessel.”
Latona will include all the premium features CRN is famed for, such as a fold-out balcony and a superyacht beach club. The latter can be flooded and turned into a tender garage when needed.
Further details are being kept under wraps for now, with the total guest capacity undisclosed, but it is understood that Latona has been fitted with a pair of 1,600hp Caterpillar C32 diesel engines for a top speed of 15 knots and will boast a transatlantic range when trimmed back to 11 knots.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 79 metre Project 135, another planned 2018 launch.
