While CRN’s history dates back 50 years, it wasn’t until the 1970s that the shipyard really began focusing exclusively on large yachts and megayachts. Toward the end of that decade, CRN introduced its first large-yacht series, called Super Conero. (On a related side note, Conero is a tourist area in the Marche region of Italy, which is where CRN’s home base of Ancona is situated.) CRN is paying homage to those early efforts with two new designs termed Conero (above) and Super Conero (below, both the flared-bow and vertical-bow images).
While the original Super Conero yachts were “just” 75’5” (23 meters), the two new designs are larger. Conero’s LOA is 131 feet (40 meters), while Super Conero comes in at 144 feet (44 meters). Each of the two steel-hulled megayacht models was developed by CRN’s in-house team, with design by Studio Zuccon International Project, and are quite traditional in appearance. They’re being positioned as entry-level models in the builder’s lineup, though they incorporate at least some features found on the larger deliveries. To that latter point, Super Conero has a float-in tender bay that’s part of the overall permanent beach club, akin to the arrangement found on J’ade.
Otherwise both Conero and Super Conero have several similarities. Both hulls are fitted with bulbous bows and are intended for transatlantic range. (No data on nautical miles nor engine packages have been released, however.) The two yachts will be built to RINA classification and meet MCA requirements, with displacement coming beneath the 500-gross-ton threshold. Super Conero and Conero further employ large panes of glass along the main and upper decks to maximize the views and natural light. They each also have a balcony off the master suite that can be used to enjoy the sights equally while cruising or at anchor. Their beams are complementary, too: 27’6” (8.4 meters) for Conero and 28’2” (8.6 meters) for Super Conero.
Interior arrangements are being left up to buyers to decide.
