CRN shipyard in Italy held a private ceremony this morning to launch the Eight following her refit. She is a 46-metre vessel, which is CRN hull No. 118.

The yacht, designed by CRN’s engineering department in cooperation with the international design firm Nuvolari Lenard, which pencilled her outer lines, is laid out across four decks. She can accommodate up to 12 guests in her master stateroom and five VIP cabins.

“Only a few weeks after the launch of the 55-metre Atlante, we are very proud to be launching another magnificent vessel today,” comments CRN chairman and CEO Lamberto Tacoli.

“This is an important and strategic moment for our shipyard, as it marks the first step along a new development path, the refitting of CRN yachts, which we believe can be an interesting opportunity for our company’s future.”

The Eight is equipped with two 3512 B KW Caterpillar engines that push her to a maximum speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.

CRN specialises in the construction of steel and aluminium vessels between 50m and 90m. The shipyard is based in Ancona, Italy.
