Ancona, 16th September 2014 - CRN, a Ferretti Group Company specializes in the construction of mega yacht completely custom-made in steel and aluminum, opens the new season with a major award won by M/Y Chopi Chopi 80 meters at the 2014 World Yacht Trophy.

The event, organized as usual by the international group Lux Media Group, rewards the best megayacht built by shipyards in the world; the flagship of Ancona shipyard was awarded the prestigious award of "Most Achieved Trophy" in the category of mega yachts from 54 to 82 meters.

The experts of the jury agreed that in the international yachting industry Chopi Chopi stands out for quality, the craftsmen’s commitment to work on the finish and interiors, for its spectacular volumes and open spaces, and its constant and direct contact with the sea. Not forgetting art, design and attention to the wellness onboard.

This new award enriches the numerous prizes that CRN’s flagship has reached throughout 2014, like: ‘Best Interior Design Award’ at the Showboats Design Awards 2014 category, among megayachts above 60 metres in length, the Judges Commendation at The World Superyachts Awards 2014, and the ‘Boat of the Year 2013’.

CRN Motor Yacht 80 m CHOPI CHOPI

Chopi Chopi, 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 6 decks that can host up to 12 guests in six suites.

Conceived as a family house, Chopi Chopi represents a synthesis and, at the same time, an evolution with the characteristic features, the soul and the innovations of a vessel branded CRN, which stands out for its spectacular volumes, the airiness of its spaces, its slender structures and its soft lines, the 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 megayacht 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 a helipad located at the stern.
