CRN, which is part of the Ferretti Group, is the first Italian shipyard to receive International Maritime Organization Tier III certification for the builder’s CRN M/Y 137, a custom steel and aluminum 203-foot megayacht.

IMO Tier III is a standard that certifies a reduction of 70 percent of emissions of nitrous oxides in engine exhaust gases and is guaranteed for all CRN motor yachts, according to a statement. The reduction is mandatory for any pleasure yacht with a gross tonnage of more than 500 that are permitted to cruise in all geographic areas and whose keel was laid after January 2016.

The project was coordinated by the CRN Technical Office and the compliance was achieved by fitting the exhaust with a selective catalytic reduction system that uses a chemical process to reduce emissions.

The CRN 137 was launched last November and is the first IMO Tier III-compliant megayacht built in Italy, according to the statement. It will be followed by three other vessels currently under construction, the CRN M/Y 138, the CRN M/Y 139 and the CRN M/Y 141.
