More than yachts, when we talk about CRN, we speak of masterpieces. It's easy to call them villas on the water because the content is much more.
In fact, CRN, Ancona shipyard founded in 1963 designs and builds steel and aluminum ships starting from 50 and up to 90 meters, unique 'pieces' made to measure for the owner and characterized by cutting-edge technical and technological solutions.
RIO, the last 62 meters recently launched, and which will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show (28 September-1 October), does not deny expectations. Indeed, it is even more surprising.
The project was developed by CRN with the collaboration of the Dutch design and architecture studio Omega Architects, which took care of the concept of the exteriors, and of design Pulina Exclusive Interiors, who have been entrusted with the interiors.
From the very first glance, the RIO project expresses its marine vocation but above all today's trends: large windows full height join together and underline the elegant exterior architecture of the yacht, allowing constant and direct contact with the sea and flooding the rooms with light also with internal reflections.
Outside, large convivial spaces all in connection with the interior.
And the external profile of the yacht, despite its 62 meters in length, 11 in beam (the width of the yacht) and four decks, is slender giving the whole a connotation sporty and dynamic, also thanks to the two aft arches, signed by Frank Laupman, harmonized in the lines that make up the design and which also have the dual function of protecting the bridge and ensuring privacy.
The interior layout is designed in a fluid way, above all to ensure an efficient distribution and enhancement of the spaces. A feature not always taken for granted even on board gigayachts.
All the numerous and vast internal living areas are connected with the outside and always under the banner of natural brightness.
Everywhere the space is designed to offer freedom but also privacy even in the open air: the splendid lounge and wellness area in the beach club, the vast spa-pool area and cinema of the Wheelhouse Deck, the different wells and also the spa-pool sunbathing area , also dedicated to fitness and any parties, at the bow of the owner's suite are an example.
RIO reflects an evolved and contemporary concept of living. Comfort is ennobled by carefully selected details, precious materials and chromatic combinations alternate in harmonious sequences.
Iconic design pieces meet with contemporary accents. The rooms, as requested by the owner, are bright and joyful; white tones predominate but there is no lack of color strokes that evoke the tones of the sea, such as pastel turquoise and the different shades of blue that are found in the finishes, in the furnishings and in textiles in customized textures that are skilfully mixed with lively and exotic decorations for a concept with a tropical flavor.
The main essences, American walnut and white lacquered oak worked with slats, chosen respectively for the floors and walls of the entire boat, harmonize perfectly with the colorful and intense notes of the Azul Makauba marble, used in the lounges, and those in the shades of green of the Irish Green marble, for the bars in the outdoor areas, light up the rooms with marine-inspired color combinations.
In the bathrooms, on the other hand, the tones are attenuated with the Crema d’Orcia and Calacatta Vagli Gold marbles. For the ultimate in luxury, but not ostentation.
