80m 'Chopi Chopi' is the largest yacht ever from CRN shipyards

In a month’s time, Saturday January 12, the CRN 80 metre steel and aluminium megayacht 'Chopi Chopi' hull number 129 of the CRN Shipyard, will be launched in Ancona, Italy - an event which will involve the city, the territory and the boating industry.

This is an historical moment for the Ferretti Group Shipyard - specialized in the construction and marketing of fully customized steel and aluminium displacement mega yachts and semi customized composite yachts, ranging from 40 to 90 metres.

Indeed 'Chopi Chopi' will be the biggest yacht ever manufactured by CRN. The external shape and internal layout were being designed by Studio Zuccon International Project, in close collaboration with CRN Technical Office which took care of the naval project, while the interior design was taken care of by Architect Laura Sessa Romboli and CRN Centro Stile, who interpreted the Owner’s request paying attention to the smallest details.

At the Ancona Shipyard the ceremony is being organized. The ship has been moved to the outdoor area of the shipyard and it was placed next to the large 100 metre long warehouse where it was built. Once moved, the mast which is more than 8 metres long, could be installed.

Yesterday morning the megayacht was moved with the help of a hydraulic travel lift, to the slipway, an inclined surface where the pre-launching operations will be carried out while works on the interiors will continue.

All the handling phases were very spectacular, given the size of the vessel (80 metres long, 13.5 wide, 2,400 tons) and the spaces in which it is being handled: the handling required great care and attention on the workers' side.



At the moment, 8 mega yachts of the CRN brand are being manufactured at the Ancona shipyard, namely, five steel and aluminium megayachts – CRN 129 of 80 mt, CRN 131 of 74 mt (both designed by Zuccon International Project), CRN 132 of 73 mt (designed by Omega Architects), CRN 133 of 60 mt(designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design), CRN 134 of 55mt (designed by Nuvolari & Lenard) – and two CRN Navetta 43 of 43 mt made of composite, also designed by Zuccon International Project. Less than a month ago, on November 17th, CRN launched CRN 125 'J’Ade'60mt, the seventh 60 metre steel and aluminium yacht launched since 2005, which is now being completed on the inside in view of the final delivery to the Owner, scheduled for Spring 2013.

Meanwhile, in addition to these, one Riva 122’ Mythos in aluminium and 5 super yachts of the Custom Line brand are being built (namely two CL 124’ and two CL Navetta 33 Crescendo).

These numbers, which are very significant for the market segment in which CRN is positioned, confirm the remarkable dynamism of the company and its ranking among the elite of the shipbuilding industry.
