Ferretti Group are delighted to announce the breaking news of the CRN 86-meter Explorer Yacht. Designed by Harrison Eidsgaard, this new, innovative and dynamic 86-meter Explorer Yacht embodies the historical Italian shipbuilder CRN’s DNA. As part of the Ferretti Group, CRN specializes in the construction of fully customised steel and aluminum pleasure vessels between 40 and 100 meters in length.
The renowned London based designers Harrison Eidsgaard have created a cutting-edge design together with CRN for the delivery of Explorer. Experts have harmonized a fresh style with historical heritage, finesse and detailed craftsmanship.
Specifically designed and conceived for the owner to enjoy long voyages around the world with his family, the project included exciting water toys and tenders. This will allow the owner, family, and friends to be able to discover even more exotic coastlines, remote locations, secluded bays and sea depths. All guest areas have been purposely designed to ensure constant, visual contact with the sea.
Explorer’s dedicated design firm created the new 86-meter yacht with this in mind throughout the building project. Specialists included specific areas for water toys and tenders as part of a refined design, quite a challenge. One example of this is the installation of a forward davit capable of easy lifting, hauling as well as launching tenders and toys up to 50 tons. The idea was to create a truly functional yacht while ensuring easy operations for the crew. This conception strategically drove the design of the yacht’s outer lines. The aim of the layout was to keep the guest living spaces separate from the vessel’s service areas, where the crew will be performing their onboard duties.
It was important for designers to embody the character of the yacht during the construction project. The result was impressive, airy, interior spaces with extensive glazed feature surfaces in all guest areas. This is paramount in the delightful salons that allow passengers to enjoy voyages to the fullest, regardless of the weather outside. Likewise, the lavish interior layout and décor maximise the onboard comfort and complete relaxation even more so with stunning panoramic views. One of the key features of Explorer is the eye-catching terrace running along the entire owner’s deck. This helps to recreate the atmosphere similar to an exclusive loft in New York, therefore, providing the entire family with the utmost in privacy and intimacy, perfect for long-range cruising.
Elegance, functionality, and versatility are the main core features of our timeless yachts. The close cooperation with our leading international designs like Harrison Eidsgaard helps us create and design prestigious Explorer yachts; they have always been part of our DNA. In fact, as early as in the 1980’s CRN was recognized as a pioneer in the design and construction of an explorer yacht. The first being an international pleasure boating vessel, the F100 was designed by Gerhard Gilgenast in 1982. In conjunction with Harrison Eisdgaard, we now want to return to those creative ideals which have led us to be where we are today. Rest assured, we are very excited about this new cooperation resulting in original concepts, declared CRN’s Chief Commercial Officer Stefano De Vivo.
We are delighted to have developed an explorer yacht capable of unprecedented functionality and ease of use. The vessel boasts stylish exterior lines and spacious areas in direct contact with the sea. We are more than happy that the owner’s passion and love for cruising have been met. Harrison Eidsgaard designers declared state-of-the-art solutions like the ones found onboard this yacht is the direct result of the long-standing expertise and experience of a historical shipyard like CRN.
Among its main strengths, the new 86-meter Explorer yacht boasts innovation, dynamism, and functionality. These features go hand in glove with the sumptuous comfort of the interiors providing unmatched pleasure as well as a luxury during navigation. Guests can expect and enjoy a constant relationship with the sea.
