The builder claims to be the first shipyard in Italy to receive the qualification

CRN, a Ferretti Group brand, has become the first shipyard in Italy to receive IMO Tier III certification for its CRN M/Y 137, a 62m fully custom steel and aluminium megayacht that is soon to be delivered.

IMO Tier III is the International Maritime Organization standard that enshrines the naval industry’s commitment to safeguarding the environment; CRN has attained certification right from its first pleasure vessel to be delivered in early 2020.

“As a result, and in accordance with the regulation, a certified reduction of 70% in harmful emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in engine exhaust gases is now guaranteed for all CRN motoryachts,” says the company in a statement.

The reduction is mandatory for any pleasure yacht with a gross tonnage of more than 500 GT that is permitted to cruise in all geographical areas and whose keel was laid after 1 January 2016.

The new CRN 137, launched last November, is therefore said to be the first IMO Tier III-compliant megayacht built in Italy, to be followed by the other three fully custom CRN yachts currently under construction: the 62m CRN M/Y 138, 70m CRN M/Y 139 and 60m CRN M/Y 141.
