“We have previously designed a 60-metre motor yacht for these clients with whom I have a very close friendship, which makes this project particularly enjoyable. It is a pleasure to work with them again and I am appreciative of their trust and confidence. It has also been a great pleasure to work with Zuccon. I have always admired his exterior designs and to partner with him and CRN for this project has been very exciting,” says Andrew Winch of Winch Designs.

“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,” says Alberto Galassi, CRN’s chairman and CEO of the Ferretti Group.
