Power on the water

Italian yard CRN unveils the AlfaRosso concept, an explorer yacht designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design.

13 November 2018


The AlfaRosso will be available in three lengths – 45, 50 and 55 metres – with a gross tonnage from 499GT for the 45-metre model. Designed for long voyages of discovery to remote places, AlfaRosso aims to be a yacht of unmistakable style.

The rigour of her architectural geometries, her crisply defined hull profile, and sharp, clean lines are all striking. The stern, lower-deck, and main- deck areas also boast a singular design. Unlike typical explorer yachts, where these are normally technical areas, on AlfaRosso they are designed for guests.

The pool, the extensive terraces, and the windows, some from floor to ceiling, offer panoramic views. The design also features the extensive use of teak, and uses steel handrails in place of the classic gunwales. Open-step stairs link the various decks, and the flush-deck pool on the main deck aims to create a communal space.

The tender and all the toys are stowed in the bow area to keep the surface area clear and clean.


“We are excited to continue our collaboration with a dynamic industry leader like Francesco Paszkowski Design. CRN has been a pioneer in the explorer vessel sector, adding an important new chapter to yachting history”, commented Stefano De Vivo, CRN Chief Commercial Officer.

“Power on the water and a sensation of merging with the surrounding space are the keys to this design.

“AlfaRosso’s sharply defined architectural geometries embrace large indoor guest areas with generous windows that give a strong sense of continuity between inside and outside”, said Francesco Paszkowski.

“Remarkable open-air spaces, conceived as grand terraces gazing on to the sea linked by open-step stairs, lend the entire design a sense of gossamer lightness, where the use of teak provides the link between tradition and innovation. Working with a historic yard like CRN has always been a great source of pride for our studio. Being able to create a new project backed by their proven expertise and solid know-how once again has been an inspiring experience.”
