A heavenly collaboration between CRN Shipyard, Zuccon International, and Winch Designs, the 74-meter superyacht Cloud 9 cast her chic shadow onto the water for the first time in preparation for her April, 2017 delivery to a seasoned owner. The Ancona launch took place Jan. 21, showing off elegant lines embellished with superstructure detailed in a graceful stack of four decks.

CRN gets credit for the engineering, while Zuccon International crafted the exterior design. Winch Design addressed the interiors, livery, and owner’s supply, providing posh accommodations for 12 guests in 5 double cabins and one master suite, attended by 28 crew. Interior and guest area details have been protected, but doors visible on the hull to aft suggest a large, open area near the beach club and an expansive, port-to-starboard oriented rectangular pool aft on the main deck.

Addressing international press and distinguished guests attending the launch, Alberto Galassi, CRN’s Chairman and CEO of the Ferretti Group, commented “We are really thrilled to have been involved in the construction of this extraordinary yacht which was a new and exciting challenge for CRN. This incredible 74-metre vessel will reinforce CRN’s expertise and varied range in working with a completely new concept to fulfil an owner’s vision. The result is a cutting-edge yacht that perfectly combines state-of-the-art technology, astonishing design and the best CRN features.”
