CRN: 86 Metres of innovation and dynamism for the new explorer yacht designed by Harrison Eidsgaard

86 Metres of innovation and dynamism for the new explorer yacht designed by Harrison Eidsgaard

CRN, the historical Italian shipbuilder and brand, part of the Ferretti Group, specialising in the construction of fully-custom steel and aluminium pleasure vessels between 40 and 100 metres in length, presents its new project, an 86-metre Explorer Yacht designed by Harrison Eidsgaard.

This new innovative and dynamic 86-metre Explorer Yacht embodies CRN’s DNA while also epitomising the cutting-edge style of Harrison Eidsgaard, one of the leading international yachting design firms. The London-based designers have indeed cooperated with CRN to create this vessel, harmonising the fresh style of their brand with the historical heritage, know-how, and craftsmanship of one of the most important shipyards creating iconic fully-custom yachts in Europe.

Conceived for an Owner used to enjoying long voyages with his family all over the world, including in remote locations, this project empowers the concept of ‘exploration’ through areas specifically designed to house water toys and tenders that will allow to discover the most exciting and scenic corners, from the coastline to the most secluded bays, all the way to the sea depths. All guest areas, in turn, have been designed to ensure a constant, direct visual contact with the sea. This was the starting point for the design firm, which is vital to understand the various aesthetic and functional solutions that have taken shape during the long, painstaking creation of this new 86-metre Explorer yacht. Conceiving dedicated areas for a large number of specific tenders and water toys as part of a refined exterior design was a real challenge. An example of this is the installation of a forward davit capable of easily lifting, launching and hauling tenders and toys up to 50 tons. The wish to create a functional yacht and to ensure easy operations for the crew strategically drove the design of the yacht’s outer lines too, with an eye to obtaining a layout that would keep the guest living areas separate from the service areas where the crew will be operating.

Considering the ‘Explorer’ character of the yacht, the project features airy interior spaces with extensive glazed surfaces in the guest areas, first and foremost in the salons, allowing to enjoy navigation to the fullest regardless of outside weather conditions. Similarly, the interior layout and décor have been conceived to maximise onboard comfort and relaxation, thanks to magnificent panoramic views. It is not by chance that one of the key areas onboard is a spectacular terrace running along the entire Owner’s deck, recreating the atmosphere of an exclusive loft in New York and letting the family enjoy the utmost privacy and intimacy, especially during long-range cruising.

“Versatility, functionality, and elegance are the core features of our shipyard’s timeless yachts. Our close cooperation with leading international designers like Harrison Eidsgaard allows us to propose explorer yachts that have always been part of our DNA. Indeed, as early as in the 1980s CRN was a pioneer in the design and construction of an explorer yacht, the first one in international pleasure boating - the F100, designed by Gerhard Gilgenast in 1982. With Harrison Eisdgaard, we now want to go back to those values that have led us to be what we are today. We are really excited about this new cooperation, which has resulted in a very original concept”, declared CRN’s Chief Commercial Officer Stefano De Vivo.

“We have developed an explorer yacht capable of ensuring great functionality and ease of use while also boasting stylish exterior lines and spacious areas in direct contact with the sea, so as to meet the future Owners’ passion and love. Unprecedented, state-of-the-art solutions like the ones found onboard this yacht are the result of the long-standing experience and expertise of a historical shipyard like CRN”, declared Harrison Eidsgaard designers.

The new 86-metre Explorer Yacht can boast functionality, innovation and dynamism among its main strengths, which go hand in hand with the great comfort of interiors, resulting in unmatched pleasure during navigation and a constant relationship with the sea.
