Stealthy Superyacht


CRN’s 55-metre Atlantedraws her masculine looks from navy fighting ships, making this battleship-inspired vessel one of the most distinctive superyachts on the water.


Devoid of traditional traits that define flamboyant, floating palaces Atlante is an oddity in superyacht terms. She doesn’t have a crisp white hull; her flanks have not been inspired by the anatomy of a leaping salmon and there’s 100 percent no turtle involved in her aesthetic, whatsoever. 


A product of the creative force that is Nuvolari Lenard, Atlante’s exterior is aggressive, angular and powerful.  Such is her dark demeanor that you’re unsure whether her intentions are to take you for a leisurely evening cruise, or blow you up.


Nuvolari Lenard used the military look to create a very private yacht for her Owner. At his request, there is little in the way of deck hardware, or any operational equipment visible. This enabled the design team to concentrate on making Atlante’s lines smooth but angular culminating in the unique treatment of her rear deck area – not that it’s actually visible from the outside.


Here, where on a ‘normal’ superyacht, you would be enjoying an open-air glass of sparkles whilst lounging on a sun-drenched sofa, we find a totally enclosed area – unique in the superyacht world.
