CRN Shipyard to attend the 2012 Cannes Boat Show with the 43m charter yacht SOFICO on display

August 29, 2012

CRN Shipyard, a brand of Ferretti Group, will be present at this year’s Cannes International Boat Show showcasing one of its masterpieces: the 43-metre charter yacht SOFICO. Belonging to the 43 metre Navetta 43 composite, motor yacht Sofico has been developed by CRN Shipyard in collaboration with Zuccon International Project, responsible for her external profile.

Motor yacht SOFICO - Main

The external profile of the Sofico superyacht is strongly characterized by her elegant art deco areas, accentuated by the dark and warm tones of Canaletto Walnut and the geometries along the furniture and the flooring.

The sign style is definitely masculine. It is the softly whispered idea of the colonial clubs, permeating a sophisticated atmosphere and lighting up the fantasy and the nostalgia of distant and enchanting places. The choice of materials goes back to the explorers of exotic seas: the skilful cabinetry is complemented with pieces of rare wood, woven leather coatings, cast bronze and precious fabrics. Unique handmade items with detailed fittings which have been patiently polished and coated by skilled craftsmen when they were being processed.

Luxury yacht Sofico presents all the CRN signature features: a Technogym and a sauna on the lower deck stern, an area dedicated to fitness which is directly linked to the sea through the hatch aft opening that can be transformed into a beach touching the sea. Not to miss, the owner’s suite terrace, furnished with comfortable armchairs and a coffee table, ideal for an exclusive breakfast overlooking the sea.

The areas are sub-divided in a classic manner: the external area on the main deck leads to a wide open space main saloon with its conversation area and freestanding Fendi sofas and Giorgetti armchairs as well as a dining table for 12 guests. The warm colours of the wood panelling and the parquet floors are softened by the gold chrome adorning the central coffee tables and the light shades of the fabrics and the geometrical patterned carpet in the middle.

The painting in gold that dominates the walls of this area also evokes geometries and modern signs. Crocodile leather, and soft leather are used for the owner’s suite which, besides a cabin and a full-beam honey-coloured onyx bath, includes a study all furnished with Fendi furniture, Loro Piana fabrics and Tai Ping carpet. This deck is also equipped with an haute cuisine galley.

On the lower deck, the guest area has two double and two twin bed cabins for a total of 10 guests on board. At the bow, on the same deck, there are 4 crew cabins, while the captain’s accommodation is on the upper deck behind the modern wheelhouse.

The natural elements, the crocodile leather and the sculptures with horns decorating the upper deck, like hunting trophies, are resolved with elegant and refined volute and strongly emphasize the masculine traits of the Sofico yacht. On this boat, the sky lounge is an original place, a meeting place par excellence. In this area there is a black grand piano which blends in with the dark tones of the armchairs and the ebony game table. The inlay of the Tai Ping carpet is also black contrasting the comfortable white L-shaped sofa in the middle. Outside on the sundeck there is a shady dining area.

Relaxation and facilities can be found on the sun deck on the bow which is equipped with a Spa Pool and 2 round coffee tables for leisure moments on the boat. On the stern there are elegant sunbeds, a barbecue and a bar covered by a rollbar.

Luxury charter yacht Sofico has 2 CATERPILLAR C32-C engines with a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a sailing speed of 13 knots for a vessel that offers the pleasure of sailing and all the comfort of cruising.

The newly launched Pershing 82 superyacht

August 28, 2012

Following the launch of hull number 2 of Pershing 108′ superyacht, the flagship of the fleet as well as the first three-engine model constructed by Pershing, the Mondolfo shipyard, historical seat of the brand, has strenghtened its fleet with another prominent vessel, motor yacht Pershing 82. Launched at Marina dei Cesari in Fano on 13th August, Pershing 82 superyacht is the first Pershing 82′ hull.

Motor yacht Pershing 82

Motor yacht Pershing 82

With her 82 feet of cutting-edge design, the Pershing 82 superyacht, which is the contemporary restyling of Pershing 80’, will be the protagonist for Pershing, a brand of the Ferretti Group which is amongst the leading world manufacturers of high performance open motor yachts from 15 to 35 metres, at the Cannes International Boat Show and the Genoa International Boat Show, where this model will be premiered.

23.99 metres long and 5.50 metres wide, the new luxury yacht Pershing 82 is once again a creation of the yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni, in collaboration with AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology – the naval research and design center of the Ferretti Group) and the team of architects and designers of the Centro Stile Ferrettigroup.

Designed to enhance the pleasure of yachting and to ensure maximum performance at sea, Pershing 82’ yacht has two powerful MTU 16 V M93 of 2435 mhp (1792 kW) with Searex SR140S propulsion system together with Rolla surface piercing propellers, capable of reaching a top speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots, with a range of 300 nautical miles. The propulsion system is run by AUTOTRIM, an exclusive functionality that opimizes the performance and the consumption of the boat at any speed and with any load, in a completely automatic manner.

Featuring a streamlined and aggressive external profile, Pershing 82’ yacht immediately shows the strong sporting spirit that distinguishes it, given its elongated lines that permit the enlargement of the internal volumes, providing wide spaces which guests can enjoy, offering greater comfort and liveability.

The liveability of external spaces has increased with the sun deck, a distinctive feature of the latest Pershing models where, next to the retractable helm, at the bow, there are two comfortable lateral chaises longues next to the pilot’s seat, in which a practical minibar has been placed.

The sun deck is easily accessible by means of an innovative carbon steel staircase, created by AYT in close collaboration with Besenzoni, which drops automatically into the cockpit by electro-hydraulic control and automatically disappears upwards when closed, freeing the space in the cockpit. For further comfort, at the stern there is a sun bed area with separate backs that can be electrically lower.

On the main-deck, the large cockpit and the main saloon, divided by an electro-hydraulically controlled retractable door, offer maximum comfort.

Customizable to the Owner’s needs, Pershing 82’ yacht has a standard layout with 4 guest cabins: the master suite amidships, a VIP cabin forward and two cabins with twin beds at the bow of the master suite. It has 3 bathrooms: an en suite in the master suite and in the VIP cabin, and a guest bathroom that can be used as a restroom during the day.

Additionally, there are two crew cabins (one for the captain and one for the sailors) which can be reached through the saloon, with laundry room and bathroom. The optional layout has 3 guest cabins with a lounge cinema room starboard.

Nada Serafini, Brand Manager of Pershing, expresses her satisfaction by saying: “By launching Pershing 82’, the brand confirms its commitment to yacht designing meeting the market demands without betraying the Pershing spirit: yachts with big volumes that combine sportsmanship, performance and style. In addition, this new launching highlights once again the strategic importance of the brand for the nautical pole of Fano.”

Outstanding performance, comfort and design: these are the keywords that make Pershing 82’ an ideal yacht with which to experience life at sea and which meets the requests of the most demanding ship owners.
