These four will be part of an impressive display of 19 yachts:
- Ferretti Yachts 550, Ferretti Yachts 650, Ferretti Yachts 700, Ferretti Yachts 750;
(Custom Line Navetta 28)
- Pershing 62, Pershing 70, Pershing 74, Pershing 92;
- Riva Iseo, Aquariva Super, Rivarama Super, Riva 63 Virtus, Riva 76 Perseo, Riva 88 Florida;
- Custom Line 108.
The Pershing 5X is the result of a collaboration between Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department, Product Strategy Committee, and Fulvio De Simoni Design Studio, founded by the architect of the eponymous studio. The coupé represents a new, astonishing chapter in the 30-year history of Pershing.
With a length of 54,2ft (16,51 metres) and a maximum beam of 14.4ft (4.38 metres), the Pershing 5X is a yacht with super sporty lines. The aerodynamic design of the superstructure is further enhanced by distinct stylistic features, like the side wings protecting the cockpit, that have become a signature element of the brand. Four windows on each side of the hull, each with elliptical portholes, complete the design of this “fighter jet” on the water.
CRN, part of Ferretti Group, will be present at the Boat Show with a stand in the SYBAss area, which gathers all the leading superyacht builders in the world.
CRN will attend the 57th edition of the US boat show to reiterate the strategic importance of the American market, for both the brand’s already satisfactory – and yet potentially growing – business volume and thanks to the presence of Owners increasingly interested in purchasing custom-made superyachts.
“CRN exports 95% of its production, and the Americas are a strategic market, holding a huge potential," states Ferretti Group CEO and CRN President Alberto Galassi. “Overseas, Italian yachts are considered as the most prestigious and desirable ones, as is the case with leading haute couture and car brands. CRN is an ambassador of Italy’s excellence in the construction of bespoke pleasure vessels. Indeed, thanks to its expertise, CRN meets wishes and needs of a cosmopolitan clientele like the one of the United States and Central and South America, by conceiving and building unique, truly tailor-made yachts for extremely selective and demanding Owners”.
Confirming the Company’s great visibility and popularity in this geographic area, three yachts from the CRN Atelier will be among the finalists of the International Superyacht Society Design Awards, whose award ceremony will be held during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show: 46m M/Y Eight in the “Best Refit” category, 73m M/Y Yalla in the “Best Power” 65m plus category, and 55m M/Y Atlante – CRN’s latest jewel – in the “Best Power” 40m to 65m category.

CRN’s stand will have on display the Bespoke artwork presented at the Monaco Boat Show Sept 28-Oct 1. This stunning piece of art, the outcome of CRN Atelier’s creativity and craftsmanship, skillfully blends together the materials, finishes and processes that the Ancona-based shipyard exclusively offers its Owners, and has been conceived to pay tribute to CRN’s art of yacht building in the world.
