M/Y RIO passes her sea trials with flying colours

After a spectacular launch on the 15th of January, M/Y RIO, the latest true custom steel and aluminium work of art by CRN, has passed her first set of sea trials with flying colours.

The new 62-metre motor yacht set out from the Ancona Superyacht Yard for a series of trials and functional tests. These initial inspections, performed by CRN’s team of highly specialised engineers and technicians in cooperation with external specialists, verified the yacht’s standard of excellence, design, build quality and her elevated levels of performance and comfort.

The M/Y RIO was designed and built by CRN in close collaboration with design and architecture studio Omega Architects, who created the exterior concept, and designers Pulina Exclusive Interiors for the styling inside. TWW Yachts is representing the Buyer, whereas TWW Yacht Management is providing an integral role within the project providing technical consultancy, survey and project management supervision throughout the final stages of the construction process.


With a gross tonnage of 1,218 and at 62 metres long and 11.2 metres in the beam, this new bespoke yacht ranges over 4 decks and can accommodate up to 12 guests, within the Owner’s suite and additional 6 guest cabins – (2 VIP). One VIP on the Upper deck forward, the other on the lower deck aft, and with 4 guest cabins on the lower deck. The yacht is fitted with 2 Caterpillar 3512C ACERT engines and offers a top speed of 15 knots, with a cruising speed of 12 knots.

The M/Y RIO is a unique opus with a strong artisanal stamp – a supremely sporty vessel with flowing hull lines and a near-vertical bow. The yacht fully reflects the personality of an owner with a passion for life onboard. There is an outstanding distribution and quality of light and the space, with large and luminous indoor and outdoor living areas. She will provide a shared cruising experience like no other.
