Delivered in May 2017, the spectacular custom-built 74 metres CRN CLOUD 9 will be making her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show later this month. Her technical aspects were developed by the CRN engineering team and the sweeping lines of the exterior styling are from the drawing board of Zuccon International Project. Winch Design was appointed to create the exterior guest areas, interior decoration and owner’s supply, resulting in excess of over 1,000sq metres of design elements being conceived across all decks.
The 74 meters CLOUD 9 features a beam of 13.5 metres and five expansive decks plus a sub deck and can accommodate up to 16 guests (12 when chartering) across eight cabins, arranged as an owner’s suite, one VIP cabin and six doubles. In addition, accommodation is provided for 22 crew members plus a further two cabins for four staff members.
The main deck offers an unusual layout which includes a swimming pool lying athwartships on the aft deck. Indoors, the main saloon consists of harmonious symmetries and linear patterns, combined with precious materials and tactile textures, a trait repeated throughout all the yacht’s interior spaces. The saloon can be transformed into a fully-fledged cinema by means of a large screen and projector which descend from the ceiling by domotic system.
Next, on the main deck, is a spacious spa area equipped with a massage table, hair salon and a private bathroom. Picturesque views of the ocean and sea breezes can be enjoyed from the fold-down balcony. Forward there are six guest cabins. Located forward of the foyer is the galley, one staff cabin and crew quarters, including a lounge, a crew mess, office and 12 crew cabins.
An internal stairwell leads to the upper deck which houses a stylish open-plan saloon/dining area filled with natural light, featuring a mural depicting a tranquil sky scene. Immediately forward to port is the fully-equipped gym and to starboard is the VIP suite with marble bathroom and sliding floor to ceiling windows which open directly onto the deck. The owner’s deck consists of approximately 400sq metres of reserved space and features the media room, walk-in wardrobes and the owner’s suite, with its centreline king-size bed.
The sun deck is an area where guests can relax and have fun, soaking up the rays while reclining on the loungers, slipping into the jacuzzi or shooting down the water slide from a height of over 13 metres above sea level. Casual dining and moments of convivial entertainment can be spent around the large round table or at the bar, which is fully- equipped for Teppanyaki-style cooking.
CLOUD 9 is powered by two Caterpillar 3516C-Chd 2000 kW@1600 rpm engines, delivering a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots. The yacht will be chartering in the Caribbean this winter, represented by Burgess as Worldwide Central Agents, with weekly rates from $875,000.
