Artisan expression

A new 62-metre vessel named M/Y Rio has been christened in a private ceremony at the CRN Ancona shipyard.

20 January 2022


The Ferretti Group brand CRN has launched a new bespoke steel and aluminium yacht, Project C138, to be delivered as M/Y Rio.

This 62-metre creation entered the water for the first time, to the great satisfaction and pride of all the expert professionals, technicians and craftspeople who have contributed to the project.

M/Y Rio is an expression of CRN’s expertise and its design and build quality, another unique work of art by the Ancona yard that reflects and celebrates her owner’s personality and vision to the full.

Sold by Alex Heyes and David Westwood of TWW Yachts, the yacht was designed and built by CRN in close collaboration with design and architecture studio Omega Architects, who created the exterior concept, and designers Pulina Exclusive Interiors for the interior styling.

M/Y Rio is an entirely bespoke vessel with a strong artisanal stamp, an elegant yet supremely sporty vessel with flowing hull lines and a near-vertical bow.


At 62 metres long and 11.2 metres beam, the four-deck superyacht can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests in the owner’s suite and the five guest suites, comprised of two full-beam VIPs – one on the main deck forward, the other on the lower deck – and three suites on the lower deck – two doubles and a twin, served by an elevator to all decks.

Numerous aspects have been carefully conceived to offer the owner family a cruising experience together like no other, in a world of freedom and privacy.

There’s the discerning distribution and quality of the spaces, with generous indoor and outdoor living areas; a superb wellness lounge and fitness area in the beach club; and the exclusive owner’s deck, a great oasis of intimacy that can also be enjoyed as a social zone.

Like all CRN pleasure yachts, the new 62-metre M/Y Rio was constructed in Ancona, Italy, at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard. Its core values include a deep commitment to sustainability, geared to reducing the environmental impact of the production processes.

Important examples of this approach in action are the trigeneration and solar-power systems which have helped to cut the yard’s heat and power consumption, by 32 percent and 79 percent respectively.
