Zuccon International Project has worked in conjunction with the CRN Engineering Department and the company’s Interiors & Design Department.

A steel and aluminium displacement yacht, M/Y SUPERCONERO has a beam of 8.6m/28ft and falls under 500 GRT. Among the design features is a side balcony that can be used while cruising, a sea terrace, a semi-submerged ‘float-in’ tender garage and a beach club to the aft.

A pool is located on the main deck aft and a Jacuzzi is placed forward of the sundeck. In addition, the bow features a Portuguese deck and a a generous area for sunpads.

Following the sophisticated Art Noveau style chosen for the interiors, the furnishings use curving lines that complement the bespoke handmade detailing to be found in each room. The strong lines of the hull blend seamlessly with the floor-to-ceiling windows to be found across each deck, designed for an owner looking for a sleek superyacht with generous outdoor spaces to experience the most of every visited destination.

Designed as a rare and opulent experience for charter guests, she is the perfect choice for celebrating special events and for impressing on corporate event charters.

The elegant main salon takes full advantage of the 11m/36ft beam to create a grand space for guests to gather at the start and end of busy days. The varied sofas and armchairs form focal points throughout the room, allowing guests to take part in smaller, more intimate conversations close to the grand piano or beside the expansive windows.

Enjoy the invigorating fresh air of the Cote d’Azur or Italian Riviera on the main deck aft as you cruise along to your next destination: The circular seating creates a space where everyone will feel welcome for morning coffee or simply chatting out in the warm weather.
