In a private ceremony on the morning of November 17 in Ancona, Italy, CRN launched the 125 "J'Ade", a 60 meter steel and aluminum megayacht.  CRN Shipyard is a Ferretti Group brand specializing in the construction and marketing of fully-customized steel and aluminium 44m to 90m displacement megayachts, as well as a composite displacement line.

"J'Ade" is powered by two MTU 12 V 4000 M 63 1500 kW engines, which provide a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots. She has all the usual CRN features, such as a large folding stern platform with a beach club, as well as private balconies in the master stateroom. Designed by Studio Zuccon International Project, in close collaboration with CRN Technical Office, J'Ade is designed with full height windows of the upper salon, providing a wide panoramic views, and for the first time onboard a CRN yacht, a floodable tender garage.

The launching was attended by the Owner, CRN management, more than 300 workers and CRN and Ferretti Group staff. This is the seventh 60 metre yacht manufactured since 2005, particularly significant considering the high market segment in which this product is positioned. The installation of the yacht interiors will be completed in the upcoming months and it will be delivered to the Owner in spring 2013.

Lamberto Tacoli, CRN Shipyard Chairman and CEO, gave a speech at the ceremony, declaring:"It is definitely a very important step, just like all the other launches, in which we pride ourselves on the great work carried out and the pleasure of having a ‘product' representing the company in the most beautiful seas and harbours around the world. My thanks today go to CRN's skilled workers and team who have made it possible to reach this new milestone, in which we take pride. However, CRN looks ahead and plans a way forward which offers great attention to the client, details and after-sales services".

"The Shipyard is in full swing and the next launch, an 80 metre, will be held in less than two months.  All our efforts aim at maintaining CRN's position in the elite world of shipbuilding", concludes Tacoli.

Currently, 7 CRN yachts are being manufactured at the Ancona shipyard. The 80 metre, which will be launched in January 2013, is the biggest megayacht ever manufactured by CRN, besides being one of the biggest ever manufactured in Italy.

Moreover, in 2013 CRN will celebrate its 50th anniversary, a historic moment that shows the stability of the company, even though it is founded in a complex market which has seen many long-standing brands disappear.
