CRN has unveil the completed interiors of the 60m J’Ade, the world’s first super yacht to feature a floating garage. Now ready for delivery to the billionaire owner, J’Ade has been designed to feel at one with the sea, featuring special full height windows providing exceptionally wide panoramic views. This is combined with a beach club, a stern hatch that turns into a large platform by the water, and the highly innovative ‘flooded garage’, where the owner can store and easily access the 8 metre Riva Iseo Yacht without the need for a tender lift. The WSB team take a closer look behind the scenes of this palace of the seas.
J’Ade can comfortably host the whole extended family, with room for 10 guests and 13 crew members. The mega yacht has a top speed of 16 knots and can make the Trans-Atlantic journey, giving easy access to both Europe and the Americas.
A brand of the Ferretti Group, CRN specialises in the construction of fully customised steel and aluminium displacement megayachts ranging from 44 to 90 metres, and a displacement line made of composite (43 metres long CRN Navetta 43). This is an important year for CRN, celebrating its 50th anniversary and marking its resilience and success despite its position in a complex market which has seen the loss of many established brands.
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.”
Hull number 125 of the Shipyard, made of steel and aluminium, has an overall length of 60 metres and a maximum beam of 10.2 metres. With four decks and a sub deck, the megayacht can comfortably host ten people – distributed in four guest cabins and a master suite – and thirteen crew members.
The interior style is classic and modern, elegant and refined, with a fusion of materials including wood, leather, marble and metals. Canaletto walnut and polished rosewood are particularly prevalent, with hardwood floors made of wide Afromosia strips and white Tai Ping fitted carpets. As the name suggests, the colour jade is accented in different shades throughout the yacht’s décor.
The internal layout was designed by Studio Zuccon International Project, in close collaboration with CRN Technical Office. The interior design was overseen by Studio Zuccon and CRN Centro Stile, who worked closely with the owner. Special features include the almost full height windows of the upper salon, providing a wide panoramic view and a feeling of close proximity to the water. An audio/video entertainement system was developed by CRN in collaboration with Videoworks, allowing complete control from an ipad, and water, salt and weather-proof televisions are used throughout the yacht.
Seen for the first time onboard a yacht, the floodable garage on the lower deck is an innovative engineering solution created by the CRN Shipyard. Operated hydraulically, the garage can dry out in 3 minutes and is lit by underwater lights for a dramatic effect. Next to the floating garage, which can also be used as a swimming pool, is the beach club. A stern hatch that turns into a large beach platform by the sea, the beach clubs offers a sunny terrace and allows safe and easy access into the ocean.
The main salon features a bar area made of green marble and rosewood with a stunning backdrop of a large aquarium. Furniture throughout the salon is made by Baxter, and uses nabuk leather in browns and beiges and white travertine marble. Instead of a traditional dining area, the owner requested an area devoted to music; a white Yamaha piano sits among backlit white pergmena columns.
The glamorous owners suite features a balcony, furniture clad with white-silver nuance coconut leather by Fendi Club House Italia, a silk carpet and textiles and curtains made of cashmere by Loro Piana. The adjacent bathroom, furnished with Afyon and Emperador dark marble, features an anti-steam mirror concealing a television, customized petal shaped washbasins and an oval bathtub by Boffi.
The upper deck comprises an outdoor dining table for 14 people, complete with a rotating servant. Indoors, a custom-made dining table made of polished rosewood and brown galuchat leather can also seat 14 people. The lounge also features two large sofas by Minotti and a Swarovski chandelier.
The sun deck has a helipad and spa pool surrounded by sun beds. Indoors, a wellness area is complete with a floor-to-ceiling green Sicis mosaics Turkish bath and a gym. Technical stats – The yacht has two MTU 12 V 4000 M 63 1500 kW @1800 rpm engines, allowing it to reach a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
