CRN’s secret superyacht

CRN has launched the secretive 72-metre Project 139 in a private ceremony at its shipyard in Ancona, Italy.

16 March 2023


Last year proved a successful one for multi-brand Italian yacht builder Ferretti Group, which posted revenues for 2022 topping €1 billion.

It looks like 2023 will continue in a similar vein with a number of projects in build across the group’s various divisions, including several at CRN – the shipyard that builds the group’s largest and most bespoke yacht projects.

On 10 March, the CRN yard manoeuvred the 72-metre project MY 139 to launch using motorised hydraulic lift trucks to transport the 1,270-ton dry weight of the steel and aluminium yacht from her construction shed to the slipway. The yacht was then launched in a private ceremony.

The project, which was sold in November 2018, has been kept largely under wraps but her dynamic lines come from the boards of Vallicelli Design with naval architecture undertaken by CRN.


Her interior has been drawn by Nuvolari Lenard in collaboration with the builder and is said to accommodate up to 12 guests and 19 crew.

The shipyard in Ancona, Italy, also has three other full custom CRN projects in build – the 67-metre project MY 143, the 85-metre project MY 144, and the 70-metre project MY 145.

The Ancona site is also home to other Ferretti Group brands and there are currently two large Rivas in build there – the 54 Metri and the third 50 Metri – alongside two Pershing 140s, a Custom Line Navetta 50 and 27 Custom Line yachts.
