There are few means of transportation that offer the level of prestige and luxury of a yacht. Traveling the seas on a larger superyacht affords the passenger the highest degree of comfort, style, and entertainment. Combining comfortable accommodations, versatile recreational activities, and stylish designs, these yachts are uniquely luxurious.
CRN Yachts is a standout in the ship building industry. This Italian company was founded in 1963 by Sanzio Nicolini. It was one of the first shipyards to produce yachts with steel and aluminum. Since its debut, it has produced over 180 custom yachts for military, commercial, and personal clients. It features high-end yachts of many sizes, reaching up to 90 meters. CRN Yachts are award-winning ships that are praised for their excellent balance of performance and luxury.
The Kanaloa is a superb mid-range yacht from CRN. It has had few miles since its major refitting in 2015. It is an award-winning unit that offers superior comfort, design, and entertainment.
The Kanaloa by CRN is a 48-meter yacht, placing it at the higher end of mid-range yachts. Although it was first built in 1996, it received a substantial refitting in 2015. This included updates to its hull, technical spaces, and paint job. Since September of 2015, when the refit occurred, it has seen very few miles. It features a full displacement steel hull with an aluminum superstructure, one of the hallmarks of CRN units.
With the exterior of the ship designed by George Nicholson, the luxurious interior design was provided by Zuretti. This design combined with the award-winning refit means that this ship not only offers superior structural and mechanical integrity, but exceptional comfort and spaciousness. As well, it features ultra-modern stabilization technology to ensure a smooth ride without feeling any roll motion.
The Kanaloa can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests. Its classic Italian design, excellent performance, and wide variety of entertainment options make this the ideal yacht for anyone hoping to optimize their experience on the water.
Accommodations and Comfort
Guests will be sure to enjoy the 6 cabins available aboard the Kanaloa. Accommodations include a sprawling Master Suite, a large VIP stateroom, and four additional guest rooms; there is one guest room on the main deck, two on the lower deck, and one on the upper deck. Up to 12 guests can enjoy these cabins, while there are updated crew quarters for 11 crew members.
The Master Suite is expansive and luxurious. It takes the full 30-foot beam of the ship, giving its occupants maximal space while its décor ensures a warm and comfortable stay. It comes equipped with features like its own private office and a his-and-hers en suite bathroom. The VIP stateroom also takes the full beam, and can conveniently be split into a private salon if desired. Every guest room aboard the Kanaloa features an en suite bathroom.
For formal meals, the bridge deck offers a sheltered dining room that is perfect for alfresco dining. Passengers can look forward to eating in style aboard the Kanaloa.
In order to fully enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, the Kanaloa offers a spacious sundeck with several highly enjoyable features. For example, the sundeck includes a swim-up bar, forward bathing area, and jacuzzi. These features compliment the entertainment technology and luxurious design to ensure a well-rounded experience.
The accommodations are not only well-designed; the materials are extremely high quality. Zuretti has designed the interior of the ship to be expansive and spacious, making the most out of the cabin and deck space. Its light colors and gorgeous Italian marble give the yacht a luxurious feel while maintaining a comfortable, warm atmosphere. In addition, the galley was updated in 2012 to include only the highest quality of culinary tools and appliances.
Staying aboard a superyacht is excellent for enjoying the water in the most luxurious style possible. However, CRN Yachts boast many entertainment features to keep guests happy while inside. Perhaps most importantly, the ship offers wireless 3G Internet access throughout, keeping passengers connected to family, friends, and work.
In addition, there is a Sky TV and DVD player located in each cabin as well as the main salon and dining room. Further, iPod docks are located throughout the ship. This allows for great and lively parties while on the water, as well as the simple personal comforts of shows and music.
The benefits of a superyacht extend beyond the on-ship entertainment and stylish design, however. One of the main attractions of high-end yachts like the Kanaloa is the recreational activities it affords guests.
To get the most out of the water, this yacht comes equipped with many toys like its two Wave Runners, two kayaks, wake boards, and water skiis. For lounging, it features inflatable donuts and a 6-person banana. There is also an inflatable trampoline for high flying fun.
In addition, there is also gear for snorkeling and beach toys for making the most out of stops. There are also two tenders included. One is a 7-meter custom 240HP Volvo, while the other is a 6-meter 150HP Yamaha.
Such a wide variety of recreational toys and accessories makes the Kanaloa the perfect ship for enjoying the water. Guests will never have a dull moment aboard this yacht, as it offers just as much fun and excitement in the water as it does inside.
