CRN’s latest full-custom 67-metre yacht, which shares its project name with the hometown of Ferrari, is taking shape.

18 May 2023


The CRN shipyard in Ancona, Italy – part of the Ferretti Group – is renowned for its Made-In-Italy craftsmanship on the superyachts it delivers, and a new 67-metre steel and aluminium project currently under construction at the yard is sure to reinforce that reputation.

Being built under the name M/Y 143 Project Maranello – the famous Italian town that is home to Ferrari and the Formula 1 team Scuderia Ferrari – the new yacht offers what the yard calls taut, fluid, aerodynamic lines and a potent sense of style that reflects her owner’s vision and specification.

Indeed, the styling is sure to be a little bit special, coming as it does from the boards of Venetian studio Nuvolari Lenard, which has built a reputation over three decades for producing some of the most iconic superyachts of recent times.

The hull has now been transported to the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona, where the artisans’ expert hands are taking care of the carpentry, the fitting-out, the machinery and the on-board systems and equipment, prior to the installation of the furniture. The hull exterior will also be meticulously primed and painted.


The numerous production stages, CRN explains, proceed in parallel and in staggered fashion in the various sections of the hull through a process of perfect symbiosis, like instruments in a symphony orchestra building to a crescendo – the completion of the piece.

Project Maranello is being built with five stunning decks, which alongside the usual saloons and entertaining spaces will also offer luxurious accommodation for up to 14 guests in exceptional comfort. There will also be crew quarters with accommodation for up to 17 crew to ensure the smooth operation of the yacht and perfect service for the guests.

With CRN M/Y 143, the shipyard’s keen commitment to sustainability has resonated strongly with an owner who is especially concerned about safeguarding the environment.

The result is an innovative, eco-friendly custom pleasure vessel with a state-of-the-art hybrid-propulsion system for enhanced energy efficiency and significantly improved fuel economy.

Moran Yacht & Ship have played a key role as owner’s representatives for the project and will continue to assist the client through the build process until the technical review, inspection and acceptance, from project management to on-site supervision and coordination of external suppliers.

Besides CRN M/Y 143, Ferretti Group’s multi-brand Superyacht Yard in Ancona – an almost 80,000-square-metre facility – is constructing two more full-custom CRN yachts: CRN M/Y 144 (85 metres) and CRN M/Y 145 (70 metres).

It is also building a Custom Line Navetta 50, Pershing 140 #03 and Pershing 140 #04, all in aluminium; plus steel and aluminium Riva 50Metri #03 and Riva 54Metri. In addition, there is the rest of the Custom Line output, with a total of 27 yachts under construction simultaneously in the sheds and at the quays for finishing, testing and delivery to their owners.
