The 86m new yacht embodies CRN’s DNA while also epitomising the style of London-based designers Harrison Eidsgaard.

Conceived for an owner used to enjoying long voyages with his family all over the world including in remote locations, this project empowers the concept of exploration through areas specifically designed to house water toys and tenders.

She also features the installation of a forward davit capable of easily lifting, launching and hauling tenders and toys up to 50 tons.

The wish to create a functional yacht and to ensure easy operations for the crew drove the design of the yacht’s outer lines, with an eye to obtaining a layout that would keep the guest living areas separate from the service areas where the crew will be operating. 

Harrison Eidsgaard designers said: “We have developed an explorer yacht capable of ensuring great functionality and ease of use while also boasting stylish exterior lines and spacious areas in direct contact with the sea, so as to meet the future Owners’ passion and love.

“State-of-the-art solutions like the ones found onboard this yacht is the result of the long-standing experience and expertise of a historical shipyard like CRN.”

Considering the ‘Explorer’ character, the project features airy interior spaces with wide glazed surfaces in the guest areas, first and foremost in the saloons, allowing guests to enjoy navigation regardless of outside weather conditions.

One of the key areas onboard is a terrace running along the owner’s deck, recreating the atmosphere of a loft in New York and letting the family enjoy privacy and intimacy.

“Versatility, functionality, and elegance are the core features of our shipyard’s timeless yachts. Our close cooperation with leading international designers like Harrison Eidsgaard allows us to propose explorer yachts that have always been part of our DNA,” said CRN’s Chief Commercial Officer Stefano De Vivo.

“We are really excited about this new cooperation, which has resulted in a very original concept.”
