Last Saturday in Ancona, Italy, yachtbuilder CRN (part of Ferretti Group) launched the yet-to-be-named “motor yacht 135,” a bespoke steel-and-aluminium superyacht. The 79-metre, five-deck 1400-gross-ton yacht features a smooth profile and svelte lines designed via another collaboration between the shipyard and naval architects Zuccon International Project. Rome-based studio Laura Sessa took care of the interior decor, the details of which are still top secret. “Motor yacht 135 is a wandering work of nautical art that will be a worldwide flagship for the dazzling mastery that only Italy at its best can create,” says Alberto Galassi, chairman and CEO of CRN and CEO of Ferretti Group. This new megayacht from CRN—the builder’s second largest to date, behind the 80-metre 2014-launched and Best of the Best winner Chopi Chopi—offers up a 13.5-metre beam that houses five VIP staterooms and a large owner’s suite, to accommodate 12 passengers, which will be tended to by 29 crew members.

The yacht will achieve a top speed of 16 knots, thanks to twin Caterpillar diesel engines, and will be cruising the Mediterranean this summer.
