November 2018 – CRN unveils the AlfaRosso concept, an innovative explorer yacht designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, available in three lengths – 45, 50 and 55 metres – with a gross tonnage from 499GT for the 45m model. Designed for an owner who loves long voyages of discovery to remote places, the AlfaRosso concept finds expression in a displacement yacht where contact with nature is elemental.
AlfaRosso is a yacht of unmistakable style. The rigour of her architectural geometries, her crisply defined hull profile, and sharp, clean lines create a sensation of poetry in motion. This pairs beautifully with the studied appeal of the open spaces and the exceptional indoor comfort. The stern, lower-deck, and main- deck areas also boast a singular design. Unlike typical explorer yachts, where these are normally technical areas, on AlfaRosso they are designed for guests to savour the sea to its fullest extent. The pool, the extensive terraces, and the glorious windows, some from floor to ceiling, offer a panoramic experience that is truly unparalleled.
The magnificent craftsmanship of this yacht is displayed both indoor and outdoor. The star here is teak wood, which forms a bridge between tradition and innovation. In the sumptuous indoor spaces, the continuity between interior and exterior is exquisitely expressed in the understated elegance of the steel handrails, chosen in place of the classic gunwales, in the sophisticated minimalism of the open-step stairs linking the various decks, and in the sense of consummate relaxation exuded by the flush-deck pool on the main deck. These details bring guests into closer contact with the sea and the air, removing any barriers that might hinder the fullest enjoyment of the on-board experience. The tender and all the toys are stowed in the bow area to keep the surface area clear and clean while further emphasising AlfaRosso’s dynamic personality and her owner’s passion for exploration.
“We are excited to continue our collaboration with a dynamic industry leader like Francesco Paszkowski Design. CRN has been a pioneer in the explorer vessel sector, adding an important new chapter to yachting history. In 1983, we created the first explorer pleasure boat, the iconic F100 designed by Gerhard Gilgenast, which went on to achieve cult status. Solidity on the water and a sense of being at one with the surrounding space were the principles underpinning the AlfaRosso design, in perfect harmony with the crisp styling by Francesco Paszkowski”, commented Stefano De Vivo, CRN Chief Commercial Officer.
“Power on the water and a sensation of merging with the surrounding space are the keys to this design. AlfaRosso’s sharply defined architectural geometries embrace large indoor guest areas with generous windows that give a strong sense of continuity between inside and outside. Remarkable open-air spaces, conceived as grand terraces gazing on to the sea linked by open-step stairs, lend the entire design a sense of gossamer lightness, where the use of teak provides the link between tradition and innovation. Working with a historic yard like CRN has always been a great source of pride for our studio. Being able to create a new project backed by their proven expertise and solid know-how once again has been an inspiring experience”, said Francesco Paszkowski.
