on a recent designboom visit to the 2014 monaco yacht show, the CRN mega yachts ‘j’ade’ 60m vessel – the first to feature a floating garage – was a finalist in the interior design award category. the ship was designed to feel at one with the sea as it boasts special full height windows that provide exceptionally wide panoramic views. this feeling is even more evident because of the innovative flooded garage that enables the owner to store and easily access the 8 meter riva iseo speedboat without the use for a tender lift. the hydraulic operated bay can dry out in three minutes and can also be transformed into a beach club terrace accessible ocean pool.

the prestige nominated inside layout was crafted by studio zuccon international project and was designed in collaboration with CRN’s technical office and centro stile. its styling has a classical focus but has refined modern and elegant hints that are reflected by the fusion of leather, marble, metals and wood. such textiles as the canaletto walnut, polished rosewood, afromosia strips and white tai ping carpets highlight these influences. the 60m ‘j’ade’ has room for 13 crew members and 10 guests, providing four decks and an outdoor diving table that can cater for up to 14 people. to enthuse all these passengers, a videoworks developed audio/video entertainment system is set up throughout the ship and the main salon features a green marble bar that has a large aquarium backdrop.

the mega boat has two MTU 12V, 1500kW engines that allows a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 – this means it can make trans-atlantic journeys. the steel and aluminum structure measures 60 meters with a beam of 10.2 meters and was manufactured by yacht specialists CRN, a brand of ferretti. lamberto tacoli, CRN shipyard chairman and CEO, commented on the launch: ‘we pride ourselves on the craftsmanship carried out by our skilled workers as they make it possible for us to reach every milestone. the shipyard is in full swing and all our efforts aim at maintaining CRN’s position in the elite world of shipbuilding.’


the CRN MY ‘j’ade’ was nominated for the interior design award at the 2014 monaco yacht show and was a press feature for designboom’s most recent visit to this event.
