Founded in Ancona, Italy, in 1963, CRN is a shipbuilder specialized in fully custom steel and aluminum yachts from 45 meters and up. From the very beginning, CRN has built yachts of peerless beauty featuring cutting-edge solutions that have set the standard in the yachting world for functional innovation, representing Italian manufacturing at its finest.

CRN proudly creates megayachts conceived by the owner’s vision and talent to create a work of unparalleled style that mirrors the owner’s personality to the full.


Innovation is the hallmark of CRN. The yard focuses on anticipating trends and developing new designs while ensuring that everything revolves around the owner. The bespoke megayacht concept thus acquires new meaning, embracing and reflecting every client’s dreams, designs and imaginings—as in any truly creative process. CRN assures this freedom of expression, empowering owners to become true authors of their own masterpiece.

CRN’s history spans over half a century, a fascinating and in many ways symbolic story of remarkable ideas, great challenges and incredible achievements that have shaped the outstanding brand it is today. Each yacht is a unique, individual work of art, before being part of the CRN fleet.

One of CRN’s many assets is its impressive yard with over 80,000 m2 of production facilities, one of the largest in Europe. The private marina with 14 moorings for 24- to 100-meter yachts and dedicated state-of-the-art sheds for constructing steel and aluminum yachts and Custom Line composite yachts, are a key driver in its constant pursuit of excellence.

Add to that a team of specialist engineers, architects and technicians conceiving hulls and naval platforms of outstanding performance plus an interiors and design department with almost 60 years’ experience working with world-class architects and designers. The heartbeat of a shipyard is its people. With their problem-solving know-how, these technical experts are always primed to rise to the challenges set by exacting customers.


CRN represents the global beacon of excellence in Italian shipbuilding and proudly creates superyachts conceived by the owner’s vision through the expertise of its own hands. The CRN fleet currently boasts more than 400 vessels in the water, including military and commercial ships as well as yachts.

The yard focuses on anticipating trends and market demand and developing new concepts and designs while ensuring that everything revolves around the owner. The company relies on a team of engineers, architects, and technicians who conceive the best-performing hulls and naval platforms, as well as outstanding design solutions created by internationally renowned designers in charge of the yachts’ functional and aesthetic design.
