The Ancona-based shipyard CRN has launched its new 50-metre superyacht Latona, built under the codename Project Superconero, in a private ceremony.
Inspired by the historic Superconero of the Sixties, the 50-metre yacht Latona marks the success of a new collaboration between CRN’s Engineering and Interiors & Design departments with Zuccon International Project.
The result is a five-deck displacement yacht built in steel and aluminium with an 8.6-metre beam and a total interior volume of just under 500 gross tonnes. She features a classic style and refined details, each personally chosen by her Owner.
The balance between the interior volumes and the desire to make the vessel as lean as possible have led to the creation of a yacht with sleek lines and a slender bow. Latona is characterized by the large interior spaces and extensive windows that offer the owner and his guests’ constant contact with the sea.
The design solutions implemented by CRN make it possible to fully experience the navigation experience, thanks to the balcony used for cruising and the terrace overlooking the sea, the area is open and enjoyable when the yacht is moored.
The garage is floodable, allowing the tender to enter the water without using a davit, and transforming a purely technical environment into an open-air living area perfectly integrated into the beach club.
As for her propulsion and performance, Latona has been fitted with a pair of 1,600hp Caterpillar C32 diesel engines allowing for a top speed of 15 knots and she will boast a transatlantic range when trimmed back to 11 knots.
“Every launch is a reason for great pride for the shipyard”, stated CRN’s and Ferretti Group’s CEO Alberto Galassi. “This complex, magnificent, 50-metres construction, realizes the desire of a selective and resolute Owner, who has turned to the expertise and the ability of CRN to build his personal project, turning his vision into a magnificent vessel.”
Latona, the latest addition to CRN’s fleet will be officially debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018.
