CRN, which is part of the Ferretti Group in Italy, has inked a deal to build a fully custom 220-foot superyacht with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.

Moran Yacht & Ship will serve as the owner’s representative and project manager on the yacht, and CRN’s New Construction Team is supervising the build.

Italian architects Nuvolari Lenard developed the exterior styling and interiors for the 220-foot yacht, which has been dubbed Project 146. According to CRN, plans call for spacious outdoor entertainment spaces, a dive center and “an extensive beach club with plenty of water toys for guests.” The upper deck will include a touch-and-go helipad.

Propulsion systems aboard the 220-footer will be hybrid for reduced fuel consumption, and the yacht will be fitted with a heat-recovery system that uses the thermal energy from the generators to heat the water in the pools, the water boilers and the deck-washing system, helping to reduce fuel consumption.

Project 146 marks CRN’s 10th collaboration with Nuvolari Lenard, a design firm that is a perennial award-winner on the world superyacht stage. Completed yachts that the two companies have collaborated on include the 141-foot Magnifica, launched in 2001; the 151-foot Kooilust Mare, launched in 2003; the 151-foot Saramour, launched in 2005; the 236-foot Azteca, launched in 2009; the 180-foot Atlante, launched in 2015; the 203-foot Voice, launched in 2020; the 197-foot Comfortably Numb, launched in 2022; and the 236-foot Njoy, launched in 2023.

CRN is also collaborating with Nuvolari Lenard on the 220-foot Project Maranello, which is another fully custom superyacht that is currently under construction. Moran Yacht & Ship is also the owner’s representative on that build, which will have five decks and accommodations for 14 guests. There will be additional quarters for 17 crew.

What other custom yachts are in build at CRN? Two more fully custom superyachts: the 279-footer known as M/Y 144 and the 230-foot Project Thunderball.

What additional yachts are in build at CRN? Hulls No. 1 and 2 of the 50m Custom Line (a 164-foot model); Hulls No. 4 and 5 of the 43M Pershing (a 141-foot model); and Hulls No. 1 and 2 of Riva’s 54Metri (a 177-foot model). The Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard is also where the Custom Line composite range from 98 to 147 feet length overall is built, with 26 of those yachts now under construction.
