Some interiors struggle to create a sense of spaciousness and efficiency without appearing austere, but this is not the case aboard this superyacht. The natural light streams in from the vast windows and glass screen doors, creating a clean, bright and uplifting atmosphere in conjunction with the pale oak flooring and furnishings. Artwork along the walls cheerfully breaks the unostentatious furnishings of burnished metal and light-coloured leather, turning the main salon and open dining area into the heart of the social scene.

Accommodation on board will be provided for 12 guests and a crew of 28. Six luxurious and comfortable cabins will include a master suite and 5 double cabins. Some of Cloud 9’s stunning features include a beach club, a helipad, a wine-tasting area and a very special facility for the owner, the tree-room to maintain the owners Bonsai collection.

Powered by twin CAT 3516 engines she will be able to reach a top speed of 16.5 kn and a crossing speed of 15 kn.

Many details of the yachts still remain disclosed. However, the name give to this 74-metre superyacht implies that she is expected to be not less successful than the previous yacht by CRN named Cloud 9, which was sold and renamed Ice Angel (currently available for charters).

CRN Yachts certainly have a busy schedule ahead, as they are also working on the construction of the 79m CRN 135, the 62m CRN 137 and the 50m Superconero.

An official launch of Could 9 is expected in late January 2017. This stunning superyacht is likely to become a charter yacht, and surely, she would make one of the best charter yachts.
