CRN, the shipyard based in Ancona specialising in the construction of steel and aluminium pleasure vessels between 50 and 90 metres in length, has held a private ceremony to launch its hull No 134 – a 55-metre megayacht named Atlante that stands out for her very strong, unmistakable personality.
This yacht is the outcome of the outstanding job performed by design firm Nuvolari Lenard, that pencilled her outer lines, and CRN’s Engineering Department, which was in charge of naval engineering.
“Launching a new yacht is always a moment of great pride for the entire Shipyard” – says CRN’s Chairman and CEO Lamberto Tacoli – “as emotions go hand in hand with the satisfaction of knowing that each and every one of our products is going to represent our brand and Made-in-Italy yachting across the world’s seas. The Atlante is an extraordinary jewel – a very innovative one – we can truly be proud of. We are deeply grateful to the Owner Company for choosing us to build such an extraordinary yacht; to the design firm Nuvolari Lenard, that through the Atlante have once more confirmed their incredible creativity; and to all CRN’s workers and subcontractors who were involved in this project from its very beginning to its final completion”.
Entirely built in Ancona, this yacht can boast a purposely strong stylistic identity, which draws inspiration from some elements typical of military crafts: square shapes, sharp lines, and innovative, sophisticated design solutions – these are the distinguishing features of the Ancona-based shipyard’s brand-new yacht.
The Atlante, 55 metres long and having a 10.20-metre beam, develops over 5 decks featuring strikingly original solutions.
Architect Dan Lenard commented: “We conceived and created this new yacht together with CRN following the requirements of the Owner Company. The outer lines have been developed having in mind a specific final look – aggressive, but at the same time very proportionate. Seen in her entirety, this is a high-impact yacht, whose determined military look becomes soft on the sea. This is why we found some original solutions, such as a non-traditional bow and areas entirely devoted to guests, like the side doors of the main deck that, once the tenders have been launched, can be exploited to the fullest”.
The Atlante is equipped with two 1230 kw @ 1800 rpm Caterpillar engines that push her to a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
