Our philosophy and values
Or, if you will, body and soul, a total commitment to each individual project. That’s the spirit in which every CRN voyage begins. And that’s how we have always made our yachts: by putting all our passion and experience into making an idea – your idea. To create a true one-off opus.
Any dream, idea or desire must be given substance before it can take shape and become an experience. More than technical skill and expertise, what makes a yacht a CRN yacht is the culture of a pursuit of perfection and an insistent attention to detail that our project managers, engineers, project architects, interior designers and sales team embrace. This is the beating heart of our idea of uniqueness, a marriage of total technical mastery with a passion for craftsmanship, forged and modelled around your concept of cruising. That’s why, as she gradually comes to life, a CRN yacht becomes the embodiment and exclusive fusion of your ideas and vision.
For us, every word you utter, every gesture you make, every feeling or desire you express – even your doubts or concerns – are the start of a journey where our talent for listening is the anchor for the whole creative project. This is the moment when it all begins to take shape; if you can dream it, we can make it.
For listening is about sensibility, careful attention and interpreting your desires. It’s the first step towards a unique experience that will have you sailing the seas in brilliant style.
Each new yacht is a challenge to raise the bar, to dream up new solutions that push the limits imposed by the materials and the available space. We are pioneers of a whole host of functional and aesthetic innovations: CRN has always devised unique designs vaunting state-of-the-art amenities that over time have become true trendsetters in the yachting world. Take the beach club, for example, or the multipurpose area aft on the main deck, or the terraces and balconies offering panoramic views and total privacy in close contact with the sea.
This continual quest for excellence in materials and technologies, in shapes and design, defies convention and propels us into the future. It all springs from the yachting culture that’s in our blood – and always has been. Since 1963.
Ancona, 1963. CRN – Costruzioni e Riparazioni Navali – was founded in this city that has been a strategic maritime hub on the Mediterranean for 2400 years. Ancona, from the Greek Ἀγκών (Ankòn), means “elbow”, after the unusually shaped promontory where it grew, creating a sheltered natural haven. A crossroads of cultures and peoples, mariners and travellers, Ancona is a distinctly unique place. Here, land embraces sea, nature meets industry, history entwines with technology, and Italian style strikes out for new destinations. When your story originates in a cradle of naval tradition like this, in a country where a love of beauty, an artisanal finesse and an innate sense of elegance fill the air each day, every project becomes the start of a wonderful journey that will lead you wherever you desire.
