The Ancona-based shipyard is ready to build a new

Made-in-Italy yacht

Ancona, 13 July 2015CRN, Shipyard specialized in steel and aluminum Superyacht construction measuring between 50 and 90 metres in length, has signed a new contract for the construction of a 50 m Superconero.

The new mega yacht, whose naval engineering project has been developed by CRN Engineering in cooperation with design firm Zuccon International Project, is a steel and aluminium 50-metre-long and 9-metre-wide displacement yacht falling within the 500 GRT class.

The 50 m Superconero will include all the main systems and solutions developed by CRN over the years, such as the balcony that can be enjoyed even while cruising, the opening terrace on the sea to relax when at anchor, the aft beach club and - a true feather in the cap of CRN’s naval engineering expertise - the Tender Bay, which for the first time ever turns a technical room into one single magnificent area to host guests: a spacious, airy natural pool that allows you to enjoy life onboard in total freedom.

The signature of this new contract, once more bears witness to CRN’s relentless search for important challenges and constant focus on its customers and products: indeed, the Superconero, together with the Expedition and the Dislopen Special Edition, belongs to a line of 50-metre semi-custom yachts developed by CRN in cooperation with Zuccon International Project in order to meet the needs of an ever-evolving and increasingly diversified market. These are three completely different projects which, however, share CRN’s DNA and reinterpret the Shipyard’s must-haves through constantly innovative solutions.

Lamberto Tacoli, CRN’s Chairman and CEO, declared: “It is difficult to understand how the sale of a 50-metre yacht can mean more than that of larger vessels, but this is exactly what we are currently feeling at CRN. The Superconero line and the 50 m projects we have conceived over the last few years with Zuccon International Project will enable CRN to offer world-class and high-quality, flawlessly-finished yachts, also thanks to the experience the Shipyard has gained on previously built 70 and 80-metre vessels. I am sure our Customers will appreciate these new lines and everything they hold within".

The 50 m Superconero will be built in parallel with other yachts currently under construction: the 55 m CRN M/Y Atlante, which was recently launched, the 46 m CRN M/Y Eight, the first refit in CRN’s history, the 74 m CRN 131, and the 77 m CRN 135.


The Italian shipbuilder CRN was established in 1963 in Ancona (Italy). Since then, the town has always been the seat of CRN's headquarters, offices, design and construction departments. CRN specialises in the design and construction of fully-custom, steel and aluminium megayachts up to 90 metres in length. Led by Chairman and CEO Lamberto Tacoli, CRN’s shipyard extends over an almost 80,000 sq m area which also includes a large, historical private marina. It is here that all megayachts of the CRN fleet – which can currently boast more than 180 yachts in the water - are built, besides some aluminium models for other brands of the Ferretti Group, which CRN belongs to.

CRN develops fully-custom yachts characterised by state-of-art solutions which are real trend-setters in the yachting world. The Company can rely on a team of professionals that conceive the best-performing bottoms and outstanding naval and design solutions, and of internationally-renowned architects and designers in charge of the yachts’ functional and aesthetic design. CRN also includes an Engineering Department consisting of highly qualified engineers and technicians, and an Interior Design Department, that, together the various project managers, the production team, and all workers, are the very heart of the Company. Moreover, thanks to its Sales and After-Sales Division, CRN takes care of each and every pleasure vessel it creates even after it has been delivered, ensuring technical support to its Owner and its crew.

CRN is a member of Sybass (Superyacht Builder Association). For more information:
