13 May 2015 – CRN, the ship builder specialising in the construction of 50 to 90 metre steel and aluminium pleasure vessels, received another international recognition, for one of its latest megayachts, at the World Superyacht Awards in Amsterdam, the prestigious event organised by the editorial group Boat International Media.
During the exclusive gala evening, held at the iconic Renaissance-style Westergasfbariek industrial complex, situated in an impressive park near Amsterdam, M/Y CRN Saramour 61m was assigned the highly sought-after ‘Judges Commendation’, reserved for displacement motor yachts having a gross tonnage between 500 and 1,300 GT. The award was collected by Luca Boldrini, CRN’s Sales & Marketing Director, together with Roberta Sabatini, CRN’s Image & Communication Manager, and Architect Francesco Paszkowski,who designed the exteriors and the internal fit-out, in front of an audience of ship owners and first-class representatives of the world’s megayacht industry.
After their victory last year with 80m flagship ‘Chopi Chopi’, the Ancona shipyard is for the second year running the winners of the special award assigned to megayachts that have stood out at an international level for their interior and exterior designs. Saramour conquered the votes of the expert panel thanks to an aesthetical language focused on achieving an overall unity of shapes, as conceived by Francesco Paszkowski Design in cooperation with CRN - a design solution chosen to set off the precious art collection that adorns the yacht, transforming her into a true and proper floating ‘art gallery’.
Lamberto Tacoli, CRN’s Chairman and CEO, commented: “Winning another award at such an important and exclusive event fills us with pride for the work that is done with so much passion and unique competencies by the entire Company. It is therefore an honour for us to receive this recognition, which pays tribute to the Italian making and design of this timeless craft, and we wish to share it with the Owner Company, with Architect Francesco Paszkowski - with whom, starting with Saramour, we have now begun a successful cooperation - and with all the craftsmen that have contributed to the creation of this vessel”.
