Yacht Of The Week: Luminous Latona.

Latona was built by CRN together with a passionate owner with a keen eye for the finer things in life. That luminous hull is not meant to attract unwanted attention or used as a statement to surrounding yachts, and it is only when you step on board that you realise Latona’s exterior is merely a continuation of the tranquil and highly sophisticated interior that hides behind her Zuccon exterior.

he Italian studio worked closely with CRN’s in-house department of designers on both the interior and exterior with a high level of customisation throughout, inspired by the famous fast-cruising Superconero from the 1960s. 

If you are confused about what luminous hull is, the paint used for the finish is a special blend that radiates a unique luminosity depending on weather conditions and the intensity of the surrounding water that Latona finds herself in. Basically its special paint that changes in relation to the weather.

The Latona is perfect for Mediterranean sailing, alfresco area are dotted around the yacht.

Long gone are the days of boarding a yacht, the Lotana’s lower decks is used to pick up guests and acts as a private marina for her Castoldi jet tender, which under the right weather conditions, she can gently drop off passengers who will be greeted by  loungers and bar for the start of a wonderful stay on board.

The sundeck has  the typical resort setup, with a grand family-sized dining table, intimate bar area top port and an open-plan sunbathing area up forward. The bright turquoise colour of the hull continues to the sundeck which gives it a beautiful turquoise tinge. 

However, as you decent down the stairs onto the upper aft deck ass the dining area outside, guests arrive in the upper saloon where you will immediately notice the lyre-inspired sofa and matching carpet detail of this magical musical instrument. 

You can’t have a musical themed room without any instruments so the room has a white-lacquered grand piano. 

The owner suite is found on the main deck, he apartment opens up into a lounge as an exclusive private area for the owners and comes with a balcony on the starboard side that acts as a reminder again that you are in fact at sea and not a hillside chateau.

The suite is finished of with dark walnut wood and light-blue velvet fabrics. 

The guest won’t be living in squalor, there are two double VIP rooms, decorated with fabric-lined panels and lacquered panels while the two twin cabins are placed forward, each with their own en-suite bathroom.

Get a look at Latona for yourself at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show taking place next month where she will certainly become CRN’s star of the event.
