After the signing of a letter of intent for the construction of a 68-meter yacht — which the company says is the biggest megayacht ever sold on the Chinese market — CRN contracted for the construction of a 77-meter (252-foot) megayacht destined for the Middle Eastern market.

After the launch of the flagship CRN M/Y 80-meter Chopi Chopi during the last edition of the Monaco Yacht Show, CRN, part of the Ferretti Group, is ready to produce a new superyacht designed by Studio Zuccon International Project, whose project design was developed by CRN Engineering and the interior design by the architect Laura Sessa.

Designed in close collaboration with the owner, the privately owned superyacht will become the second-longest vessel of the shipyard of Ancona.

“I am very proud of the signing of this last letter of intent for a new 77-meter megayacht, another ambitious project for CRN, which allows us to continue to grow,” CRN chairman and CEO Lamberto Tacoli said in a statement.

“I believe that CRN’s challenge involves keeping the tension high while aiming at continuous improvement. With this in mind, the project of the 77-meter is a new challenge in such a strategic market as that of the Middle East.”
