CRN, an Italian shipbuilder that is part of the Ferretti Group, started construction on the new 164-foot MY Superconero, which will be launched next winter.

The CRN yard specializes in the construction of custom steel and aluminum boats between 131 and 328 feet. The new model has been designed and engineered by CRN’s engineering department with input from Zuccon International Project, who handled the exterior profile and the interiors, working alongside CRN’s interiors and design department.

The vessel is a steel and aluminum displacement yacht that measures 164 feet overall with a beam of 28.2 feet. The balcony can be used while the boat is underway and, when at rest, the opening sea terrace and aft beach club let passengers enjoy the great outdoors. When opened, the tender garage links with the beach club to create a large water-level area. In the interior, full-height windows provide panoramic views.
