CRN Shipyard to Launch Megayacht 'Chopi Chopi' in January

The CRN 80 metre steel and aluminium megayacht “Chopi Chopi” hull number 129 of the CRN Shipyard will be launched on Saturday January 12th in Ancona. 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.

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 manufacturedat the Ancona shipyard: namely, five steel and aluminium megayachts – CRN 129of 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.
