Following her successful debut at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, the new 60-metre CRN 130 motor yacht Darlings Danama was honoured with the prestigious Nautical Design Award in the category ‘Interior Design – Motor Yachts’ on November 8. The third edition of this important event was hosted by the magazine Yacht & Sail (RCS) as well as the Industrial Design Association (ADI).
The CRN Shipyard – a Ferretti Group brand, specializes in the construction and marketing as well as sale of fully customized steel and aluminum displacement mega yachts, ranging from 46 to 90 metres and a displacement line represented by a 43 metres long CRN Navetta 43 (an example can be charter yacht Sofico).
The jury, having seen Darlings Danama superyacht exhibited at the Monaco Yacht Show, “appreciated the great balance between the interiors, whose structural aspects were chosen by Gianni Zuccon’s Studio, and the open spaces designed by architects Alexandre and Cristina Negoescu who followed the owners’ requests. The boat was liked for the innovative spatial solutions of its internal layout, where materials were used consistently, exceeding the usual characteristics of saloons. Despite its 60 metres the spaces are well-balanced and consistent with the externals”.
The award, which is in its third edition and which was held in Milan on November 8, is particularly important especially for the high profile of its jury, made up of an ADI designer as well as an influential jury of owners led by Walter de’ Silva of Volkswagen. Among the owners, judging the candidate yachts at the NDA 2012, were: Giorgio Armani, Vittorio Missoni, Lamberto Vallarino Gancia and the major of Venice Giorgio Orsoni.
The models of the yachts, winners of the third Nautical Design Award, obviously including that of Darlings Danama, will be exhibited from 9th to 18th November at an exhibition which will be open to the public in Milan and set up in the renovated Piazza XXV Aprile.
M/Y Darlings Danama
Luxury yacht Darlings Danama, hull number 130 of the shipyard, made of steel and aluminium and commissioned to CRN by a European ship Owner, is the sixth 60 metre ship built from 2005 till today, a particularly significant result within this market segment. Darlings Danama was built on a 10.20 metres naval platform, the same one used for other important 60m mega yachts manufactured by the shipyard of Ancona, such as the CRN 126 superyacht “Blue Eyes” and CRN 128 yacht “Mimtee”.
Megayacht Darlings Danama can comfortably host 12 people, in 5 guest cabins and the master suite, plus 14 crew members. The boat is equipped with two Caterpillar 3512 B-Chp 1’455 kW@1835 rpm engines, which allow it to navigate at a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
The slim and sleek bow and the imposing volumes, with wide spaces overlooking the sea, characterize the cream superyacht Darlings Danama, whose external lines and internal subdivisions bear the distinguishing mark of Studio Zuccon International Project, that worked in association with CRN technical office, which designed the ship.
Luxury yacht Darlings Danama has been designed focusing the attention on space and details, making it discreet, with elegant lines and timeless shapes, which add value both to the ship owner and the shipyard.
As regards to the interior design, which was taken care of by the Darlings Danama yacht’s Owner’s architects, Cristina and Alexandre Negoescu together with the CRN Centro Stile, there is a dominance of circular lines which represent the new image of onboard comfort, with fluid spaces that ‘expand’ and extend to all the areas. The minimal style and the art deco spirit blend together with elegance and sophistication and are represented in a modern style.
The interiors, which feature lots of open spaces, are mainly monochromatic and dominated by white sheer oak creating a new, extremely enjoyable, contemporary habitat which enhances the volumes.
In the Owner’s apartment, it is worth noting the new exclusive system that was especially designed by CRN in collaboration with Videoworks and the Polytechnic University of the Marche, to remove all sounds in the bed area. This system makes it possible to cancel the “active noise”. Sound is totally annulled through a series of microphones that register environmental background noise and generate noise with opposing frequency to kill the sound waves.
