Burgess Yachts has been hired for project management on the new build.
Burgess Yachts, which recently made news after managing the build of the world’s largest private yacht, Azzam, has just signed a deal to manage a 242-foot project at the CRN shipyard in Italy.
The CRN superyacht, whose name has not been revealed, is scheduled to launch in 2016.
Studio Zuccon will handle exterior design, and Andrew Winch Designs has been tapped for the interior — marking the first time Winch will work with CRN Ancona.
Design features are expected to include a panoramic owner’s salon with full-length picture windows, an open-plan sundeck and a large water-level beach club.
