CRN has unveiled details of the 229-foot Project Thunderball, a fully custom yacht with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure that was sold in August 2022.

Vripack drew the external lines and handled naval architecture on this yacht, while Nauta Design did the interior design and outdoor furniture. Y.CO handled the sale and is acting as owner’s representative and project manager.

According to CRN, Project Thunderball has lines similar to a sailboat’s, with an elongated bow, a low profile and curved bilges. The owner is a passionate sailor, so a smaller sailboat will also be delivered to accompany the mothership.

Expectations are for the owner to cruise in the Mediterranean, Florida and the Bahamas, with a focus on scuba diving, sailing and underwater fishing.

Gross tonnage will be 1,100, with accommodations for 12 guests and quarters for 15 crew.

What else is in build at CRN? The yard is also working on three other fully custom yachts ranging from 220 to nearly 280 feet length overall.
