F100, a project that changed everything.

In perfect CRN style, the vision of a forward-thinking owner, the flair of a master of yacht design and the time-honoured virtuosity of CRN’s expert artisans combined to create a whole new breed of yacht: the F100.

A landmark innovation that defined our future.

In 1983, CRN delivered the F100, a 32.8-metre yacht designed by Gerhard Gilgenast for Gianni Agnelli, head of the famous Italian car-making dynasty. It was an adventure the defined CRN's future and gave the company huge impetus. The F100 was the most advanced superyacht the yard had yet built; she foreshadowed a type of yacht that would be all the rage twenty years later.

Exploring
new frontiers.

Her unmistakable svelte lines by Gilgenast helped to launch the "minimalist" movement in contemparary yacht design. She was an extremely robust, comfortable craft well-suited to long cruises in all weathers, the first yacht with floating rubber supports for an exceptionally quiet ride - in short, the first explorer yacht. The F100's groundbreaking design would prove inspirational, paving the way for many others to follow.
