Italian superyacht builder CRN has delivered a striking 60-metre yacht, which is now cruising the Caribbean, to her new owners. 

15 February 2023


With an audacious scoop in her profile, vertical stem and reverse-rake styling features, CRN’s new 60-metre yacht – which was delivered to her owners in December 2022 – is hard to miss. Her dynamic lines, which were drawn by Italian studio Nuvolari Lenard, are also reflected in dynamic performance – the yacht is capable of hitting a top speed of over 25 knots, and cruises at 22.5 knots.

The yacht is a complete custom build, and features naval architecture by CRN’s in-house team.

The whole project was built to a demanding brief from knowledgeable owners, who stipulated she should have performance coupled with a modest draft to enable cruising in the West Indies, and for the interior to feature airy, generous-height spaces and large areas both for guests and for crew.

The result is a 60.33-metre overall length on a beam of 10.55 metres, with interior volume coming in at a comfortable 1,114 gt. The five-deck yacht can accommodate up to 12 guests alongside 13 crew.


Her design is not just a triumph of styling – those impressive numbers for full throttle and cruise speeds are unusual for a displacement vessel and speak to CRN’s capability in research and development as a custom superyacht division at the top end of the Ferretti Group’s chain of brands.

Moreover, her engineering features an exhaust treatment system that ensures she complies with IMO Tier III emissions regulations.

This means not only the reduction of harmful gases such as NOx by up to 70 percent, it also means her owners can cruise her unrestricted in all geographic locations, even those that have been designated as emission control areas (ECA).

This is becoming increasingly important, with the North American coastlines and the North and Baltic Seas already designated ECAs and discussions ongoing for ECAs in the whole of the Med, and around the coasts of Australia, among others.

Launched from CRN’s shipyard in Ancona on Italy’s Adriatic coast, the yacht underwent extensive sea trials before delivery to her owners, and subsequently crossed the Atlantic to enjoy her maiden cruise season in the Caribbean.
