The morning of September 17 saw the launch of J’Ade, the 125th megayacht overall made by CRN. At 190’9” (58.2 meters), J’Ade is also the seventh of her size launched since 2005. It’s reflective of an increasing desire overall in the megayacht marketplace for boats in the upper size ranges.
The steel-hulled J’Ade, with a beam just over 33 feet (10.2 meters), rises four decks high. CRN’s in-house team took care of naval architecture, with CRN’s frequent collaborator Studio Zuccon International Project responsible for styling and general arrangement. That arrangement includes a floodable tender garage, for a 26-foot (8-meter) Riva Iseo. J’Ade is the first CRN megayacht with this feature.
Other features aboard J’Ade are as you would expect of something her size, including a transom beach club and a balcony off the owner’s suite. There are a further four guest staterooms and accommodations for 13 crew. No details have been released on the interior decor, other than that the owners worked with Studio Zuccon and CRN’s staff to execute it.
J’Ade should top out at 16 knots, given MTU power, and will be delivered in the spring.
Meanwhile, CRN is preparing for yet another launch in about six weeks’ time, that of a 262-foot (80-meter) megayacht. She’ll be CRN’s largest megayacht to hit the water. The shipyard has a handful of other projects being readied for next year as well, a year that marks its 150th anniversary.
