It may not be apparent at first blush, but every yacht has a personality. Born of dreams and designed into existence by visionaries, yachts take form through the experienced hands of master craftsmen and shipbuilders. They becomes the literal interpretation of ideals, made whole through hard work and intense communication. CRN Yachts recently performed such a transformation at the Ancona, Italy shipyard, delivering 80 metres of the most magnificent vessel to date.
CRN, Costruzioni e Riparazioni Navali. Is a brand of the Feretti Group that specializes in custom yacht builds between 40 and 90 metres. Chopi Chopi, the 129th hull built by the 50-year-old firm, is the largest ever launched by CRN, and one of the most refreshingly outfitted as well.
This distinctive and luxurious yacht balances form and function in exquisite style, embellishing interiors and details with wood, marble, leather, and metals. The interiors exude a richly refined space that also imparts a light, spacious retreat designed to enhance wellbeing.
