CRN Constance wins top award

Italian shipbuilder CRN has won the prestigious World Superyacht Awards 2018 with its M/Y Constance 60m receiving the Voyager’s Award for the most spectacular cruising itinerary created in 2017.

Organised by Boat International Media in the elegant Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, the awards celebrate the excellence of the nautical world, involving owners and personalities of international yachting.

This important acknowledgement once again pays tributes to CRN’s long-standing experience in the construction of state-of-the-art megayachts, characterised by innovative design and engineering solutions that make cruising a truly unforgettable and unparalleled experience, a statement said.

In early 2017, Constance’s owner and his family cruised over 20,000 miles during a long and exciting cruise in the Caribbean Sea and the South Pacific. After sailing off Florida, Constance reached the Bahamas and Cuba, then continued towards the Cayman Islands, crossed the Panama Canal and finally reached Costa Rica. After cruising the pristine natural paradises of the Coco Islands and the Galapagos, the yacht headed towards French Polynesia, Cook Island and Tonga, Fiji, and then started its way back to Florida.

Born from the successful collaboration between CRN and design firm Zuccon International Project, M/Y Constance 60m is a megayacht designed and conceived to maximise the pleasure of sailing and the constant contact with the sea, even during long-range cruising.

M/Y Constance has proven to be capable of outstanding cruising performance, boasting a range exceeding 10,000 miles at 11 knots, which allows it to easily cross the ocean and return.

The Italian shipbuilder CRN is a company of the Ferretti Group. It was established in 1963 in Ancona (Italy), the seat of CRN's headquarters. CRN specialises in the design and construction of fully-custom, steel and aluminium yachts up to 100 m in length. The shipyard in Ancona extends over an almost 80,000 sq m area and includes a large, historical private marina. It is here that all megayachts of the CRN fleet - which currently boasts more than 180 vessels in the water - are built, in addition aluminium and light alloy models for other Ferretti Group brands.

CRN develops unparalleled projects characterised by state-of-art solutions which are real trend-setters in the yachting world. The company can rely on a team of engineers, architects and technicians that conceive the best-performing bottoms, naval platforms, as well as outstanding architectural and design solutions created by internationally-renowned designers in charge of the yachts’ functional and aesthetic design.
