The 60m custom luxury motor yacht by CRN has a great designed inbuilt dry dock – floodable tender garage for a Riva Iseo boat

J’ade was built in steel (hull) and aluminium (superstructure) and has a beam of 10.20m. She has 4 decks and a sub lower deck. J’ade accommodates 10 guests in 4 VIP cabins and an owner’s suite. A crew of 13 crew members ensure the yacht’s operation.

This aspect is the basis of the stylistic and functional design of the external shape and the internal layout, created by Studio Zuccon International Project in close collaboration with the CRN Engineering department, which handled the naval architecture. The interior design was handled by Studio Zuccon and the CRN Design and Interiors department, who took into consideration the owner’s requests up to the smallest detail. The style is classic and modern, elegant and refined with a fusion of materials that were wisely combined: wood, leather, marble and metals which harmoniously combine with the natural and artificial lighting of the internal spaces. The concept of the vessel’s decor is reflected in its name J’ade, that is, jade green, a colour that is used in different shades for the decor of the ship and in all the decorative textiles in the internal and external spaces. Jade combines technological innovations and open and bright spaces designed by CRN, creating a new way of experiencing the sea. Moreover the megayacht fully embodies all the main strengths of the brand: the balcony in the master suite, the beach club, with the stern hatch that opens and turns into a large beach seat the water level, a unique floodable garage integrated in the lounge area of the beach club and a large full window in the panoramic salon.

The aft on the main deck has an area with very elegant sofas and armchairs made of natural teak with black all weather fiber. All the outdoor furniture of the main, lower and upper decks – sofas made of natural teak with white and green covers – is by Glyn Peter Machine The big main salon has a wide open elegant and comfortable layout with warm and welcoming shades, which harmoniously match with all the other elements. As you enter from the cockpit, on the left, one immediately notices the bar area with a green marble top and a structure made of rosewood with leather tops, on which there is a big aquarium, which was the Owner’s special request. Toward the stern, there are two lateral walls, covered in white galuchat, customized with two specific functions: a panel that hides the bar, on the left, and an internal door that leads onto the beach area for the guests on the right side of the ship. In front of the aquarium, there are two Frau armchairs clad in light beige nabuk leather with a customized floral pattern on the outside. Towards the bow there is the salon with two big sofas clad in white fabric and four armchairs in dark brown nabuk leather with a floral pattern on the outside, all by Baxter; in the middle of this area there are two coffee tables made of raw wood with steel bases, which creates an element of contrast with the other pieces of furniture in the salon. The different elements mixed together harmoniously enhance this area, for example, the carpet integrated into the hardwood floor, the white travertine marble with gunwale made of dark brown hammered leather. In the same area, instead of the traditional dining room, the Owner wanted an area devoted to music, including a small white Yamaha piano. In this area, there are six full-length columns covered in backlit white pergamena integrated into the furnishings. In the main salon the core materials used are beige nabuk leather cladding the two lateral bookcases in the middle of the main salon and the dark brown nabuk hammered leather which clads all the unit doors and drawers. The main materials of the interiors are Canaletto walnut and polished rosewood for some of the details; the hardwood floors are made of with wide Afromosia strips and white Tai Ping fitted carpets in all the guest cabins and the master suite. Towards the stern, across the main lobby there is a crystal lift, connecting all the decks and reaching the master’s suite, with access through the Owner’s study. Behind the lobby there is a crew area with a pantry and the galley, which is completely made of steel.

In the Owner’s suite onboard J’ade, there is one of the distinctive features of all the CRN vessels: the balcony, which can be kept open even while sailing, furnished with a coffee table and armchairs for breakfast. The headboard and all the accessories of the furniture in this room are clad with white-silver nuance coconut leather by Fendi Club House Italia. The carpet, fitted in the hardwood floor surrounding the double bed, is made of silk and the edges are outlined in the classic Greek key motif. All the decorative textiles and curtains made of cashmere are by Loro Piana. The entire suite is furnished in light shades. The master’s suite features a full beam bathroom furnished with Afyon and Emperador Dark marble, with customized petal shaped wash basins , also in Emperador Dark marble. The oval bathtub in Corian designed by Boffi occupies the central position facing an attractive dressing table featuring an elegant top in marble and equipped with an anti-steam mirror, which conceals a led TV. To the right, there is also a large shower in marble with waterfall faucets. The lower deck has an area reserved for guests, with four VIP double cabins, two of which nave beds that can be separated. Loro Piana textiles were used for the decor of this guest area. The main material used is oak and the details are clad in dark brown leather. The en-suite bathrooms are made of Cedarstone marble, at the stern, and Dark Emperador was used for the two VIP cabins towards the bow. The area on the lower deck of the stern was designed as a large open space integrated with an innovative floodable garage: the large hatch opens onto a wide beach club and beach salon. The garage, for the first time onboard a CRN megayacht, is floodable and the tender (a 27foot Riva Iseo) can be handled in it without using a crane. The side hatch of the garage is operated hydraulically and the internal basin fills with water to allow the tender to go in and out easily: the border of the tub has a protection to avoid damage and it also has underwater lights to create a dramatic effect. The garage can be emptied very quickly and dries out in three minutes. The upper deck has a large cockpit and a wide upper salon, with full-length windows, which create a wide panoramic view and increase the “eye-contact” with the sea. The cockpit has an outdoor teak sofa, coffee table and armchairs, and a large round table, with a rotating servant, for fourteen people. On this deck all the decorative textiles of the cockpit in shades of green and brown are by Loro Piana who chose them together with the Owner, thus bringing the entire environment together conceptually, both externally and internally, where the decorative cushions have the same design. Indoors, the entire panoramic salon was designed to have two different functions: on the right, the lounge area has two big sofas by Minotti, decorated with Loro Piana cushions, with a large carpet underneath it, and a dining area with a big valuable and custom-made rectangular table made of polished rosewood and dark brown galuchat leather for the inserts. It can accommodate fourteen people. The same materials were used for the imposing square coffee table between the two couches on the right side of the salon, with space for four poufs clad in dark brown nabuk leather.

Above the table there is a lamp with clusters of different sizes, made of Swarovski, giving a very precious and elegant touch to the entire environment. At the bow, there is the wheelhouse with a radio room and a captain’s cabin, also designed with the same details as the guest cabins. The sun deck, from bow to stern has a solarium with sofas and sun beds by Dedon and double sun beds with a shade designed by Kettal. The cushions are taupe, reflecting the warm grey colour of the hull, together with other jade green cushions. This bow area can be turned into a touch-and-go heliport.Internally, the indoor area is dedicated to wellness, with a Turkish bath and a steam bath with green Sicis mosaics and a gym area equipped with fitness machines (a Run Form® and a Kinesis®) by Technogym. At the bow, outside, there is a big rectangular spa pool with two large sunbeds. Keeping up with the most modern technology, J’ade has an audio/video entertainment system and domotics (curtains, lights and air-conditioning), developed by CRN in collaboration with Videoworks, controlled in a simple and immediate way using an iPad and iPadMini. Moreover, in the upper deck cockpit, there is a hermetic led TV –water, salt and weather proof – while a third led TV with the same characteristics is settled at the beach club. Outside, towards the bow and in front of the steering wheel on the upper deck there is another novelty for CRN: the carbon steel retractable mast for the sailing lights. A structure that is present on all megayachts over 50mt and normally fixed. On board J’ade, thanks to a special device, the mast can be retracted when the ship is moored, to improve the view and further enhancing the beauty of its external design. The crew area on the lower deck has six double cabins and a large crew mess. The pleasure ship has two MTU 12V4000M61 1500kW @1800rpm engines which allow it to sail at a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
