CRN Yachts in Italy has delivered the 203-foot Rio, a custom yacht with a steel hull, aluminum superstructure and near-vertical bow.

Design is by CRN in collaboration with Omega Architects for the exterior and with Pulina Exclusive Interiors for interior styling. TWW Yachts represented the owner, including providing technical consulting and project management.

Accommodations are for 12 guests in six staterooms, including an owner’s deck as well as two full-beam VIPs: one on the main deck forward and the other on the lower deck. There are also quarters for 15 crew.

Features include an elevator that services all decks, a spa pool on the owner’s deck, a beach club and a “cinema zone” aft on the wheelhouse deck.

What materials are used in the interior? American walnut, white lacquered oak, multiple types of marble, and what CRN calls “jungle-style decorations” that include hand-painted panels in the owner’s lobby.
