CRN Yachts

CRN are  well known for the building/design of some large steel super yachts over 50m, such as GIVI & ABILITY, as well as composite planning custom line luxury yachts like ANNE MARIE and LAVINA. The launch of their first 43m composite displacement yacht EMERALD STAR, has enhanced their position as one of the industries leading superyacht designers and innovators.  

CRN Yachts is based in Ancona, Italy, and is the super yacht side of the Ferretti Group, becoming part of the Ferretti group in 1999. CRN is the acronym of  “Costruzioni e Riparazioni Navali".  Sanzio Nicolini founded CRN in 1963 and began at first building small craft and then continued to start production of large yachts. Since the beginning, the company has been manufacturing luxury yachts with a mix of steel hulls and aluminum superstructures. The CRN yacht bow structure is one unmistakably trademark as well as their idiosyncratic stern designs.

Some of CRN's important projects include mega yachts up to 70 meters in length. The company’s philosophy is to blend luxury, comfort, and high performance into state of the art yachts. CRN strives to deliver a unique product.

Now with a fleet of over 116 mega yachts launched, the CRN shipyard in Ancona can now be seen as one of the principal builders of luxury yachts. Today the shipyard builds fully customized mega yachts in steel and aluminum from 30 to 70 meters under the CRN name and also semi custom vessels in composite material from 29 to 43 meters under the Custom Line name.

The first yacht in the agreement between these two giants was MAGNIFICA a luxury motor yacht of 43 meters launched as in 2001. She was the first hull of a very successful line of yachts. The shipyard in Ancona continued its expansion by joining forces with Custom Line in 2002 - another company bought by the Ferretti Group in 1998. Custom Line specializes in the production of maxi yachts in composite material.

CRN Yachts expanded at the beginning of 2003 by buying Mario Morini shipyard which neighbors CRN and was one of the few Italian shipyards to specialize in steel constructions. This expansion means the Italian shipyard is becoming one of the most important producers of luxury yachts in Europe, and the world.

Today in Ancona CRN Shipyard covers an area of approximately 80,000 sq. meters, of which 35,000 are covered. This size allows the simultaneous construction of more than 15 yachts at one time. It also allows for the creation of yachts over 70 meters in length. CRN has a workforce of around 380 employees, which does not include out sourced subcontractors which swells the ranks further.
