In a showcase of innovation and leadership CRN Shipyard, a brand of the Ferretti Group, presents the two highlights at the Monaco Yacht Show (Monte Carlo, 25-28 September), the most prestigious international boating event; 80 metre megayacht CRN 129 Chopi Chopi and the 60 metre megayacht CRN 125 J’ade.
The company which specialises in the construction and sale of fully customised displacement mega yachts made of steel and aluminium, ranging from 40 to 90 metres, marks 2013 as a milestone year. Not only is CRN celebrating its 50th anniversary, but it has also shown a strong commitment to production; CRN has demonstrated resilience and success despite the complex market Lamberto Tacoli, CRN Shipyard Chairman and CEO, commented:
“The Monaco Yacht Show is a key event to showcase CRN’s development strategies. This will be the second most important occasion of the year, following the launch of Chopi Chopi in January 2013. We are incredibly proud to participate in Monaco this year on our 50th anniversary and premiere our mega yachts Chopi Chopi and J’ade. CRN is navigating steadily as a leader in innovation and the strength of the shipyard is evident in the number of yachts currently under construction. While we push the boundaries of innovation, we remain committed to our investment in our core assets; design, technology, and ‘Made in Italy’ craftsmanship as we continue to conquer new clients and markets”
Looking forward, the company will focus on the expansion of business in key emerging markets and further cement their position as a leader of innovation. The company will increase visibility in the Americas and Asia and internally, through collaboration partners, CRN will focus on research in innovative technological solutions through new product designs to reflect the tastes and personalities of their valued owners.
The Shipyard will continue to focus on their client and products giving its maximum consideration to the values of the brand: personal and high quality attention to the Owner and 360° service offering of flexibility, tradition, reliability, ‘tailor-made’ designs, and ‘Made in Italy’ craftsmanship.

CRN Chopi Chopi
CRN “Chopi Chopi” is the 129th pleasure vessel built by the shipyard, which, 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, designers of the exterior line and interior layout together with CRN Engineering, and architect Laura Sessa, who was responsible for the style concept and interior design. The completed vessel presents Italy’s outstanding shipbuilding industry to the world. Chopi Chopi is a steel and aluminium displacement hull yacht with 5 decks and a sub-lower deck that can host up to 12 guests across six guest suites and 30 crew members
Conceived as a family house, Chopi Chopi represents a synthesis and at the same time an evolution of CRN ships’ peculiar trademarks, and it stands out for its stunning volumes, wide spaces, sinuous shape and yet soft lines, care for the detail and wellness onboard, and – very important indeed – for a more direct contact with the sea. As every ship produced by the yard, 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 that turns into a 100sq metres beach overlooking the water and the wide windows, which allow light to flood into the interiors, thus granting a constant eye-contact with the sea.
Moreover, Chopi Chopi features some particular innovative solutions, such as the pilot house – sporting a peculiar round shape – and an exclusive space for the Owner, with a deck entirely devoted to him, located between upper and sun deck, where he can enjoy cruising in maximum privacy and that can be reached also thanks to an helipad located at the stern.
Hull number 125 of the Shipyard, J’ade made of steel and aluminium, has an overall length of 60 metres and a maximum beam of 10,2 metres. With four decks and a sub deck, the megayacht can comfortably host ten people – distributed in four guest cabins and a master suite – and thirteen crew members. It has been designed to feel at one with the sea, featuring special full height windows providing exceptionally wide panoramic views on the upper deck salon. The eye-contact with the sea can be enjoyed also from the Owner’s suite, thanks to a balcony that can be left opened even while sailing, a feature that has quicly become a “must-have” for every CRN owner.
Moreover the latest innovation featured onboard this stunning ship is the beach club, which turns into a wide beach overlooking the sea and forms an integrated area together with the new Tender Bay. The internal layout was designed by Studio Zuccon International Project, in close collaboration with CRN Engineering. The interior design was overseen by Studio Zuccon and CRN Interior & Décor department, who worked closely with the Owner.
