Man Cave at Sea
Welcome aboard CRn’s new creation, a formidable megayacht designed with flair and distinction inside and out.
It may look like a battleship from the outside – its square shapes, sharp lines and accents of gunmetal grey and matte black draw inspiration from military design – but step inside and it rivals the elegance and refinement of the world’s most luxurious megayachts.
Four decks high and 55 metres long, this sophisticated vessel is the work of CRn, the Ferreti Group shipyard in Italy that specialises in 40- to 90-metre megayachts made of steel and aluminium. Dan Lenard of nuvolari Lenard, the Italian design firm responsible for the ship’s exterior, was initially surprised at the owner’s request for a military-style ship devoid of portholes and rounded corners, but soon warmed to the task at hand. CRn’s CeO Lamberto tacoli, meanwhile, cited nuvolari Lenard’s “incredible creativity” in designing a yacht that’s “an extraordinary jewel in our crown”.
Like the ship’s exterior, the interiors are handsome rather than beautiful, and have a masculine edge. Design firm Gilles and Boissier specified a mix of light and dark Carrara and verona marble in living, sleeping and bathing areas, pairing the cool stone with the warmth of dark timber and leather panelling. the owner’s expansive stateroom on the main deck serves as a private oasis. Lighting plays an important role on board Atlante, creating a welcoming atmosphere come nightfall.
the ship can accommodate 12 guests in five staterooms and 13 crew members. the vast foredeck doubles as a helipad and has a swimming pool facing the view ahead. Daybeds and sofas abound in the ship’s outdoor relaxation zones and there’s a sunken dining area that can disappear into the deck. the rear of the ship folds down to act as a smart entryway while in port or a sunbathing deck when anchored at sea. the lower deck is also home to a gym, solarium, massage bed and bath.
Atlante can cruise along at a maximum speed of 15 knots with the help of twin Caterpillar 3512C engines, and while it has a 10-metre beam, its three-metre draught means it can safely cruise in shallow waters.
