“Sofico” is a dislocation-design, caramel-colour maxi-yacht with a length of 43 metres and a width of 8.6, capable of navigating the seas in complete comfort, at a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots. Inside, the ship easily houses 10 passengers and 9 crewmembers.
The launching ceremony, an intimate but exciting affair, featured the traditional breaking of the bottle moments before the ship slid into the water. The thrill was heightened by the notes of the celebrated aria from “Turandot”, as well as the hearty applause of those present.
Designed in a joint effort by the technical staff of CRN and the Zuccon International Project Firm, the vessel comes with four decks and a bulbous hull, having been built entirely in the Ancona shipyard: from the creation of the moulds and the subsequent lamination of the hull, all the way to the decorative work and the finishing touches on the décor. The entire production process took place under the direct control of the CRN, guaranteeing the quality and reliability for which the shipyard is famous.
The interior furnishings and the décor of the “Sofico” feature elegant, linear Art Déco motifs. The focussed, modern, style of the vessel’s forms is combined with a masterful use of multiple materials that are combined in an admirably rational manner, such as the parquet flooring interspersed with ample inlays of silk carpeting and found on all the decks.
Throughout the vessel, two varieties of precious woods, both with a polished finish, are mixed and matched: canaletto walnut is used in all the day zones set aside for guests, while light-hued, natural cherry wood was chosen for the cabins.
The functional, elegant lounge on the main deck leads to a covered well astern. The owner has furnished the conversation zone with refined couches upholstered in striped silk velvet by Fendi, as well as comfortable armchairs designed according to elegant geometries. The dining room holds a large ebony table finished in gold leaf, where guests to dine in full comfort and relaxation. Framing the setting is a large bookcase lined with crocodile skin and a decorative panel done in the tradition of the finest Futurist art.
“Sofico” reprises some of the features most admired by CRN shipowners everywhere, such as the Technogym workout room and the sauna in the stern portion of the lower deck, plus a fitness and wellness area connected directly to the sea, thanks to a stern hatch that can be transformed into a beach platform which lowers itself practically flush with the water. The classic balcony of the owner’s suite is outfitted with comfortable armchairs and a coffee table, making it an ideal site for an exclusive breakfast at sea, even when the ship is underway.
