Workers at the CRN shipyard in Italy have moved Hull No. 1 of the builder’s 60-meter series into the slipway, with launch scheduled for March 1 and delivery to the owners soon thereafter.

The 196-foot superyacht is the 133rd launch from the yard in Ancona, which specializes in custom builds from 160 to 295 feet LOA. The boat is now positioned on the inclined slipway, where pre-launch and interior work can continue.

Francesco Paszkowski handled exterior shapes and interior layout in collaboration with CRN’s in-house team for naval architecture. The owner’s designer, working with CRN’s team, did the interior décor.

Other yachts now under construction at CRN include a Ferretti Custom Line 124, a Riva 122 Mythos, a CRN 180, a CRN 239 and a CRN 242. More details are at www.crn-yacht.com.
