CRN Shipyard - a Ferretti Group brand - will be attending the 2012 Cannes Boat Show exhibiting one of its masterpieces: 43 metres M/Y CRN Navetta 43 “SOFICO”.
Belonging to the 43 metre Navetta 43 composite, this yacht has been created by CRN Shipyard in partnership with Zuccon International Project that took care of the external profile and is strongly characterized by her elegant art deco areas, accentuated by the dark and warm tones of Canaletto Walnut and the geometries along the furniture and the flooring.
The sign style is definitely masculine. It is the softly whispered idea of the colonial clubs, permeating a sophisticated atmosphere and lighting up the fantasy and the nostalgia of distant and enchanting places. The choice of materials goes back to the explorers of exotic seas: the skilful cabinetry is complemented with pieces of rare wood, woven leather coatings, cast bronze and precious fabrics. Unique handmade items with detailed fittings which have been patiently polished and coated by skilled craftsmen when they were being processed.
“Sofico” presents all the CRN signature features: a Technogym and a sauna on the lower deck stern, an area dedicated to fitness which is directly linked to the sea through the hatch aft opening that can be transformed into a beach touching the sea. Not to miss, the owner’s suite terrace, furnished with comfortable armchairs and a coffee table, ideal for an exclusive breakfast overlooking the sea.
The areas are sub-divided in a classic manner: the external area on the main deck leads to a wide open space main saloon with its conversation area and freestanding Fendi sofas and Giorgetti armchairs as well as a dining table for 12 guests. The warm colours of the wood panelling and the parquet floors are softened by the gold chrome adorning the central coffee tables and the light shades of the fabrics and the geometrical patterned carpet in the middle. The painting in gold that dominates the walls of this area also evokes geometries and modern signs. Crocodile leather, and soft leather are used for the owner’s suite which, besides a cabin and a full-beam honey-coloured onyx bath, includes a study all furnished with Fendi furniture, Loro Piana fabrics and Tai Ping carpet. This deck is also equipped with an haute cuisine galley.
On the lower deck, the guest area has two double and two twin bed cabins for a total of 10 guests on board. At the bow, on the same deck, there are 4 crew cabins, while the captain’s accommodation is on the upper deck behind the modern wheelhouse.
The natural elements, the crocodile leather and the sculptures with horns decorating the upper deck, like hunting trophies, are resolved with elegant and refined volute and strongly emphasize the masculine traits of the boat. On this boat, the sky lounge is an original place, a meeting place par excellence. In this area there is a black grand piano which blends in with the dark tones of the armchairs and the ebony game table. The inlay of the Tai Ping carpet is also black contrasting the comfortable white L-shaped sofa in the middle. Outside on the sundeck there is a shady dining area.
Relaxation and facilities can be found on the sun deck on the bow which is equipped with a Jacuzzi and 2 round coffee tables for leisure moments on the boat. On the stern there are elegant sunbeds, a barbecue and a bar covered by a rollbar.
The boat has 2 CATERPILLAR C32-C engines with a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a sailing speed of 13 knots for a vessel that offers the pleasure of sailing and all the comfort of cruising.
SOFICO is classified within the maximum RINA class and complies with the applicable MCA.
