Have you ever wanted the ultimate superyacht. While this is certainly not the biggest, it does look the part. It is the stunning 50 metre Latona by the CRN shipyard. The craft was debuted in February and has now been delivered having left the shipyard on its way to the Mediterranean Sea. There she will be sure to make quite an impression with her elegant and sophisticated design.

This is a private yacht which brought to reality the desires of a highly demanding and determined owner. The build was a collaboration between CRN’s Engineering and Interiors & Design departments and design firm Zuccon International Project.

Latona has five wide decks, is 50 metres in length and has a 8.60 metre beam. Onboard it’s a careful blend of streamlined looks with spacious interiors. The shipyard used wide, ceiling high windows to allow the owner and guests to have a constant outlook of the sea no matter where they are in the boat. The balcony can be enjoyed at all times, even when underway with a luxury terrace that can be opened when the boat is at anchor.

The interior configuration allows for 10 guests in five cabins made up by a master suite, two double cabins and two twin cabins. Unbelievably Latona can also carry a full compliment of nine crew.

What makes this yacht truly unparalleled is the exclusive tender bay that converts a purely technical environment into an open-air living area that perfectly integrates into the beach club, so that guests can enjoy moments both indoors and outdoors.


She is powered by 2 Caterpillar (C-32) 1,600hp diesel engines with twin screw propellers. With that set up, a top speed of 15 knots is achievable. Onboard there is 48,000 litre fuel with a stated range of 3,800 nautical miles at 11 knots. Her water tanks store around 12,000 of fresh water so you can stay wherever you like for quite a while indeed.
