If only yachts could talk. What would they tell us what they think about the name, they carry upon their transom? We wonder if the newly launched 60 metre superyacht Comfortably Numb built by CRN knows she is named after an album track. “Comfortably Numb” is a song by English rock band Pink Floyd. It appears on their eleventh album, The Wall. David Gilmour’s solo on that 1979 track has been voted the Greatest Guitar Solo of All Time by listeners of PlanetRockRadio.
Would the yacht care? At the time of her launch, no one claimed to even know her name! She went down the slipway and was reported to have done so by most of the yachting media as CRN 141.
But now the secret is out we can reveal a little more about this superlight ultra fast yacht.
Built entirely in aluminium, this high-performance five-decker has a West Indies island-friendly draught. Meaning she can navigate in the shallow waters of the Bahamas.
CRN, claim the yacht can exceed 25 knots and cruise at 22½ knots. She does so using twin MTU IMO Tier III-certified engines driving conventional propellers.
13 crew can look after 12 guests on board this 1,114gt yacht. Sadly so far, no interior images have been released. What we do know about the interior comes from the Nuvolari Lenard design studio. They designed both the inside and the out!
After successfully completing her sea trials, Comfortably Numb left the CRN Ancona Superyacht Yard and sailed on her inaugural cruise. She crossed the Atlantic bound for the Virgin Islands. It was there in St Thomas that the picture shown here was taken.
Having used a delightfully eloquent version of Google translate, the Italian shipyard has described the yacht thus. “A fusion of fluid power and taut poise with futuristic technology and dazzlingly dynamic external lines. She blends her in-depth expertise and tireless commitment to R&D of CRN. This developed the entire naval architecture for this bespoke yacht – with the tremendous experience and peerless Italian creativity of architects Nuvolari Lenard, who took care of the interior and exterior concept.”
