Over 1,000 people gathered for the launch of the new CRN 132 M/Y Yalla, which was held on 31st May, 2014 at the CRN shipyard of Ancona, Italy. The audience included local institutions, illustrious guests, employees and their families, the Ferretti Group and CRN Management as well as the citizens of Ancona.
The external profile of the new vessel has been designed by Omega Architects, in close collaboration with the CRN engineering department which developed the naval project, while their interiors have been created by Droulers Architecture, which has worked in close collaboration with the shipyard’s interiors and design office.
The new superyacht, the first to be built by CRN on the new naval platform of 12.50 metres in width, is characterised by sleek, slender and sporty lines, which makes the appearance of the yacht particularly streamlined. With five decks, M/Y CRN 132, which measures 73 metres LOA, can host up to 12 guests in its six cabins, including the owner suite and VIP cabins, together with a crew of 22 members.
The construction required around 430,000 hours of work from the shipyard workers and subcontractors and the daily contribution of over 150 direct and indirect workers.
The launch ceremony was introduced with the greetings and speeches of the top managers and the local authorities: Alberto Galassi, new CEO of the Ferretti Group, Lamberto Tacoli, chairman and CEO of CRN, Xinyu Xu, vice-chairman of Weichai Group, together with the mayor of Ancona Valeria Mancinelli.
Lamberto Tacoli, chairman and CEO of CRN, commented, “Following the launch of M/Y CRN 133 a few months ago, we are proud to celebrate the launch of the new M/Y Yalla of 73 m, which represents a challenge and an objective for the whole CRN shipyard. Yalla will mark another important result for the development of CRN in the world. A sincere thanks for the trust of the owner and for the work of all employees and subcontractors who have worked on the project, to the architects Franck Laupman of Omega Architects and to Droulers Architecture. I also thank our shareholder Weichai Group and the new CEO of the Group Alberto Galassi for their participation in this important event for CRN and for the whole Ferretti Group”.
