It’s always exciting to take delivery of a new megayacht. When owners do that around the end of the year, of course, it makes for very merry holidays. The owners of the CRN yacht Comfortably Numb had her in their hands prior to Christmas. They are now enjoying their first cruising season in the Caribbean.
The yacht went by her hull number during build, CRN 141, plus celebrated her christening last September. She’s entirely aluminum, standing five decks high. Right from the start, the owners wanted a project capable of doing things differently. In fact, they wanted a high-performance vessel with a West Indies island-friendly draft. Considering that Comfortably Numb is nearly 198 feet (60.33 meters) in length, high performance is quite atypical. According to CRN, the yacht can exceed 25 knots as well as cruise at 22½ knots under MTU power and in-line propellers. She therefore doesn’t employ waterjet boosters.
Just as the owners were firm on the performance requirements, so too, were they firm in other matters. In fact, they wanted both their guests and their 13-person crew to have high-ceilinged and voluminous-feeling areas. A total of 12 passengers can stay aboard, enjoying airy staterooms and lounges. Overall volume aboard is 1,114 gross tons. Although no images or further details are available on the ambience, the owners worked with the Nuvolari Lenard design studio. The same studio gave Comfortably Numb a lively, vibrant profile.
Even before heading to the Caribbean, where she spent time in St. Thomas, the yacht Comfortably Numb made stops in a few places. These include Montenegro.
