Ancona, 18th September 2012 – This year CRN, a brand of the Ferretti Group, participated again in the 2012 edition of Festival de la Plaisance (Cannes, 11-16th September), exhibiting one of its jewels – the 43 metre M/Y CRN Navetta 43 “Sofico”. The prestigious “Best Interior Award”, received for the interior design of the 43 metre megayacht CRN Navetta 43 “Lady Trudy”, confirms the high quality of the boats produced at the Ancona shipyard. This prize was awarded to CRN as part of World Yacht Trophy 2012, organized by the French editorial group LuxmediaGroup, at the end of the boat show. With its harmonious fusion of Made in Italy elegance and touches of the American colonial atmosphere, “Lady Trudy” is a composite displacement yacht with four decks that can comfortably host 10 passengers - in four Vip cabins and a master suite – and 9 crew members. The boat was designed by the CRN Technical Office, while the external profile and the internal layout was produced by the experts at Studio Zuccon International Project, who worked in synergy with the Centro Stile CRN. An elegant grey pearl hull with all the typical distinctive features of the CRN yachts: a large sun deck, a fitness area on the lower deck overlooking the sea and a terrace in the master suite, furnished as a “balcony” with a coffee table and armchairs which can be used at breakfast as well as during sailing. Among the other features of Lady Trudy, it is worth noting the elegantly furnished interiors which have given the ship its name: a plunge into the American atmosphere, with "Hampton style" romantic touches. Additionally, each one of the four guest cabins features a dominant colour linked to an American part of the North Atlantic coast: “Newport”, the starboard aft Vip cabin predominantly yellow; “Cape Cod” aft on the right where the predominant colour is green; “Mystic” at the bow on the left, with twin beds and a pull out bed, where red predominates and “Nantucket” aft on the left, where the main colour is blue. According to Lamberto Tacoli, Chairman of CRN, "The new-found financial serenity of the Ferretti Group through the new property and the important autumn boat shows that open the nautical year, encourage us to look at the next months with optimism, besides the usual passion. Economically wise, we are aware to operate in an international scenario which is actually going through a rough patch, especially at a European level. This award represents a much appreciated reward for our commitment to design research, which is a field CRN has invested a lot in: our efforts have been praised and we’re very glad for this. Yet there is still a lot to do. Anyway having an order book full until 2015 will allow us to keep improving. Our goal is to have CRN placed among the top mega yacht-builders worldwide" .
