Italian shipyard CRN has launched its 73m superyacht M/Y CRN 132 Yalla. VIP guests, representatives from local institutions, employees, the Ferretti Group, CRN Management and citizens of Ancona attended the public ceremony, which was held on May 31, in Ancona, Italy.
CRN has been part of the Ferretti Group for over 50 years. It specialises in constructing fully-customised megayachts in steel and aluminium of up to 90 metres.
The exterior of the new vessel has been designed by Omega Architects in collaboration with the CRN engineering department. Droulers Architecture, who worked alongside the shipyard’s interiors and design office, created the interior.
The vessel is the first to be built by CRN using the new naval platform of 12.5 metres in width, and is characterised by its sleek and sporty lines. With five decks, Yalla can host up to 12 guests in six cabins including the owner’s suite, VIP cabins and 22 crew members.
The launch ceremony opened with greetings and speeches from Alberto Galassi, the new CEO of the Ferretti Group, Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman and CEO of CRN, Xinyu Xu, Vice-chairman of Weichai Group, and the Mayor of Ancona, Valeria Mancinelli.
“Following the launch of M/Y CRN 133 61m in March, we are proud to celebrate the launch of the new M/Y YALLA," says Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman and CEO of CRN, "At 73m YALLA represents a challenge and objective for the whole CRN shipyard and marks an important global development for CRN. We would like to sincerely thank the owner for his trust in CRN, all our employees and subcontractors who have worked on the project, Franck Laupman of Omega Architects and Droulers Architecture. I also thank our shareholder Weichai Group and the new CEO of the Group Alberto Galassi for their participation in this important event for CRN and for the whole Ferretti Group.”
