THE 2000s: A NEW ERA
In 1999 CRN joined the Ferretti Group, a world leader in the design, construction and sale of motoryachts, with a unique portfolio of prestigious and exclusive brands at world level.
The first step in this new phase was the project Magnifica, a 43-metre megayacht designed by Nuvolari & Lenard and launched in 2001, the first craft in a very successful range. In the same year CRN and Custom Line merged to form the Ferretti Group’s Ancona-based megayacht operation.
In 2002 CRN reached a new goal which further strengthened its know-how and production capacity, by purchasing the adjacent shipyard Mario Morini, a historical brand in ship building. The union between the two shipyards created new imposing premises with a surface of 80 thousand square metres.
The launching of vessels followed immediately, just as the concept of “fully customized” megayachts in steel and light aluminium alloy was being introduced.
