Motor Yacht Over 200 Feet: CRN Cloud 9
CRN’s Cloud 9 is much more than the sum of its parts. Zuccon International Projects created a clean profile by layering the five decks plus subdeck of the 243-foot exterior while also using smart design for external social areas. The foredeck doubles as a private gathering area, with an alfresco dining room under a specially designed tent. The beach club has an espresso bar where guests can enjoy water views. A gym is located on the upper deck, and the main deck houses a hair salon, massage table, and fold-down balcony. Cloud 9 also has a 2,600-gallon glass-bottomed pool on the main deck, plus a Jacuzzi on the sundeck and outdoor cinema on the owner’s deck. For water lovers, toys include a MasterCraft X20 competition ski boat, a sailing catamaran, and five Jet Skis.
Andrew Winch’s interior for the superyacht is elegant and informal: Douglas fir and lime oak are the primary woods, while 50 other materials help customize the saloons and eight staterooms. Artwork is modern but classic and includes a 3-D porcelain panel by Fenella Elms in the main saloon and a dreamy cloudscape by DKT on the upper deck, both perfect symbols of the yacht.
