Based in Ancona, Italy, CRN are becoming increasingly well known for their building and design of large steel super yachts over 50m. They are also known for composite planning custom line yachts, and composite displacement yachts, providing CRN with status as one of the industry’s leading superyacht designers and innovators.
Merging as part of the Ferretti Group in 1999, CRN is the acronym of ‘Costruzioni e Riparazioni Navali’. Sanzio Nicolini founded CRN in 1963 and started building small craft before moving onto producing larger luxury yachts. CRN manufacture luxury yachts with a blend of steel hulls and aluminium superstructures. The CRN yacht bow structure is an unmistakable trademark of their stern designs.
Currently, CRN’s building projects include mega yachts of up to 70 meters in length, blending luxury, comfort and high performance into their state of the art yachts. Having launched over 115 yachts, CRN’s shipyards build tailor-made mega yachts in steel and aluminium from 30 to 70 meters. The CRN semi-custom range of yachts build using composite materials are from 29 to 43 meters in length.
