MY “Azteca” is the pleasure ship, hull number 124, of the CRN shipyard based in Ancona, a brand belonging to the Ferretti Group. This vessel, 72 metres in length, built on a naval platform of 13.50m, and made of steel and aluminium, is the second largest cruising yacht ever built in CRN history.
Azteca, like all the other vessels realized by CRN, is a completely new “fully customized” project implemented through the collaboration of the shipyard engineering staff and the Nuvolari & Lenard company.
Azteca has a sophisticated and innovative design. The slender shapes of the hull together with particularly modern and racy external lines, accentuated by the pronounced and sharp stem, characterize and distinguish the powerful realization of CRN within the scene of mega yachts this size.
Given the excellent balance between the design and the imposing volumes, the mega yacht acquires a particularly aggressive character, accentuated by the wide open spaces of the sun deck while breaking the schemes that expect big boats to have a less “sportive” soul.
Finally, like an inspired work of art, the realization of this ship is also based on the sharp tuning between the shipyard and the ship owner, whose personality was at the basis of the project choices. A true homage to luxury and refinement, Azteca was developed so that it can offer guests the possibility to interweave a strong bond with the sea.
For this purpose, at the stern of the lower deck, a completely innovative area will be equipped as an authentic “beach club” of more than 100 sq m.
In fact the stern port can be transformed into a big beach close to the sea, equipped with an external shower and a sun pads which the guests can use as a solarium. At the back there is a wide indoor space dedicated to the total relaxation of the guests who can easily enjoy the proximity of the sea as they relax on the comfortable sofas or enjoy a tasty aperitif at the bar.
