The Shipyard was founded in Ancona in 1963 by entrepreneur Sanzio Nicolini, under the name ‘Costruzioni e Riparazioni Navali’, leading to the acronym CRN, the name under which the Shipyard has gradually established itself at a worldwide level all the way to the present day, and is now still considered as an icon of Italian excellence, style and elegance.
The immediate ‘recognisability’ of CRN’s yachts became a leitmotif that lasts to this day. In that period, all CRN yachts were characterised above all by a very distinctive pointy bow, which almost came to be regarded as a trademark.
In 1999 CRN joined the Ferretti Group, a world leader in the design, construction and sale of motoryachts, with a unique portfolio of prestigious and exclusive brands at world level.
