City of Lights

    Maraya, the 164-foot custom motoryacht recently launched by CRN, is a breakthrough design for the Italian shipyard. The steel-hulled yacht has a contemporary, sleek profile with innovative designs such as a master balcony that folds outward from the master suite to become a private patio on the sea. Maraya’s expansive interior is literally a city of lights. CRN installed more than 600 points of light, using only fiber-optic and LED technology, to highlight the design of the walnut interior, artwork, decorations, and unique fabrics like cream-colored leather chairs and ebony furniture. The 1,000-square-foot main lounge is a yachting ballroom of epic proportions. It is a single, unbroken space, separated only by a 42-inch plasma TV and dining table that seats 12. The rest of the interior, including the owner’s cabin with its private study and five guest staterooms, is also tastefully decorated and artfully lighted. To make the most of the view, Maraya even has a glass elevator that traverses its three covered decks. (www.crn-yacht.com)
