A Fully Bespoke Nautical Work of Art

The New 62m Superyacht RIO by CRN

During a recent visit to Ancona, we learnt about the magnificent CRN M/Y RIO is the latest true-custom steel and aluminium superyacht by CRN, an entirely bespoke nautical work of art with an unmistakable pursuit which is to make on-board life uniquely pleasurable.

The taut, flowing hull lines and near-vertical bow bear striking testament to her remarkable elegance and dynamic, sporty personality. The new 62-metre beauty is the fullest expression of the Ancona yard’s artisanal skill, design expertise and fine construction quality.  

RIO was designed and built by CRN in close collaboration with design and architecture studio Omega Architects, who created the exterior concept, and designers Pulina did the styling inside.

TWW Yacht Management, representing the owner, has provided integral technical consultancy with survey and project management oversight throughout the final stages of construction and onward through the operational management.

Created to her owner’s vision, CRN M/Y RIO exudes a supreme harmony between the ample interior and exterior spaces, evoking a strong   sense of  fluidity, an  impression of  even  greater  volume  and a perceptual and functional unity between inside and out.

The generous full-height windows form a visual continuum in sync with the elegant exterior architecture. They offer a delightful play of reflected shimmer, bathing the spaces in light and enabling constant direct contact with the sea. The main aft deck profile revels in the harmony of designer Frank Laupman’s signature arches, which protect the deck and assure guests’ privacy while framing superb views from the side and stern.

At 62 metres long and 11.2 metres in the beam, this 4-deck yacht comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in the owner’s suite and 5 guest cabins.  These are comprised of 2 full-beam VIPs – one on the main deck forward, the other on the lower deck and 3 suites on the lower deck, namely 2 doubles and a twin, served by a lift to all decks. There are also 9 cabins for the 15 crew.

This true-custom yacht has an unmistakable pursuit: to make on-board life uniquely pleasurable. The owner can enjoy the harmonious distribution and quality  of the spaces, with a smooth,  fluid  layout  designed specially to unite the many large indoor and outdoor living areas seamlessly in masterly style, where natural light reigns supreme.

Like all yachts built by CRN, this one is yet another masterpiece with its own unique look and features that are designed to impress.
