Yesterday was a busy day at CRN. The project known as CRN 134, a 180-foot (55-meter) megayacht, was rolled out of her build shed. She was taken to CRN’s slipway, for final launch preparations to occur over the next few weeks, as is customary.
CRN 134 bears exterior design by Nuvolari-Lenard, which has previously worked with the builder, notably on Azteca. The shipyard likens the strong styling to that of military ships. Indeed, the yacht is more angular in appearance overall than many of CRN’s previous projects. The look is enhanced by the hull color. Note, too, what appears to be a pronounced wing station.
The builder is keeping full details about CRN 134 close to the vest for now. Thus far it has revealed that interior design is by its in-house department and Gilles & Boissier, a French firm. The latter has put its mark on a number of luxury hotels and residences globally. It also gives an artist free reign to create a mural or drawing to figure prominently in all of its designs, so it will be interesting to see what CRN 134 holds in store.
CRN 134 isn’t the first yacht project for Gilles & Boissier. The team was responsible for styling and interior design on two sailing superyachts. They are the 82-foot (25-meter) Blackwood, built in 2005, and the 128-foot (39-meter) Blackwood of London, from 2008. Each was built at the Turkish yard Bod-Yat.
We’ll have more about CRN 134 following her official launch in about a month.
