ITALIAN LARGEST MEGAYACHT

ITALIAN SHIPYARD CRN’S LARGEST MEGAYACHT CROWNED WINNER AT THE WORLD SUPERYACHTS AWARDS

Italian shipyard CRN has been honoured with the prestigious award “Judges Commendation” for its M/Y Chopi Chopi 80m superyacht at this year’s “The World Superyachts Awards” on 3 May 2014. CRN, part of the Ferretti Group, specialises in the construction of fully-customised megayachts, made of steel and aluminium, ranging from 40 and 90 metres.

Organised by editorial group Boat International Media, “The World Superyachts Awards” is dedicated to the largest displacement motoryacht of 2,000 GT and above. Hosted at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam, the event was attended by an elite guest list of superyacht Owners from around the globe and the most influential players in the industry.

The award was received by Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman and CEO of CRN, together with the team at CRN and architectural firm Zuccon International Project, which created the exterior profile and interior layout as well as Laura Sessa, who was responsible for the stylistic concepts and interior design.

Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman and CEO of CRN, comments on the news: “This new, unexpected and prestigious award for Chopi Chopi, our flagship, is the reward for the work undertaken by all the CRN shipyard, in close collaboration with the Owner and the architects Laura Sessa, Giovanni and Paola Zuccon, not forgetting our shareholder Weichai Group and our friend Alain Maaraui of SeaPros; my personal thank you goes to all of them, once again. In addition to perfectly representing the commitment and the passion that have characterised the shipyard of Ancona for 50 years, Chopi Chopi brings prestige to our Italian Nautical Scene and will be a great stimulus for continuing our fascinating and demanding work.”

In February 2014 Chopi Chopi won the “Interior Design Award” for megayachts over 60 metres at the “Showboats Design Awards”. Chopi Chopi was also presented the special prize at “The World Superyachts Awards” for its innovation, design and onboard technology, which also captivated the Owner’s family

CRN 129 80M CHOPI CHOPI FEATURES

Hull number 129 built by the shipyard, at a staggering 80 metres, is the largest megayacht ever built by CRN and one of the biggest ever produced in Italy. Chopi Chopi is a grand showcase of Italian quality, having been fully constructed in Ancona and designed by two Italian architectural firms: Studio Zuccon International Project, which created the exterior profile and interior layout together with CRN Engineering, and architect Laura Sessa, who was responsible for the stylistic concepts and interior design. Chopi Chopi is a steel and aluminium displacement hull megayacht with six decks that can host up to 12 guests in six suites, 30 crew members and nine staff.

Conceived as a family house, Chopi Chopi represents a synthesis and at the same time an evolution with characteristic features, with the soul and the innovation of a CRN megayacht. Chopi Chopi stands out for its spectacular volumes, the airiness of its spaces, its slender structures and soft lines, attention given to detail and well-being onboard, the play of lights and, above all, the more direct contact with the sea.

As with every vessel produced by the shipyard, the new flagship fully embodies CRN’s strengths: the balconies and open terraces in the VIP cabins on the main deck, the beach club on the lower deck with the stern hatch that turns into a 100sq metre beach overlooking the water and the wide windows, which allow light to flood into the interiors, thus granting constant eye-contact with the sea. Moreover, the Chopi Chopi yacht features some particular innovative solutions, such as the avant-garde pilot house – sporting the characteristic round shape – and an exclusive space for the owner, with a deck entirely devoted to him, located between the upper and sun deck, where he can enjoy cruising in maximum privacy and which can also be reached thanks to an helipad located at the stern.
