On either side stands a unit exhibiting a rich collection of stone spheres: symbols of good omen and whose circular designs are reproduced in the various circular shapes all over the boat holding a primary role in various environments just like gemmology and Chinese symbolism. Two doors with a central gold leaf logo obelisk separate the main hall from the dining area which holds up to 12 guests. In this area the classic polished mahogany is muffled by the extensive use of Perspex for the table and the chairs: being transparent, Perspex enhances the light and “exposes the soul”. A Picasso painting adorn the walls of this area. The leitmotif of the entire boat is a marine chain which is also taken up as a romantic decoration on the perimeters of furniture as well as in the engravings of the table and the marble in the foyer which leads to the bow. Madrepores and corals enliven this intermediate space with engravings on marble and glass doors leading to the four decks of the boat.
A luxurious and personal owner’s cabin is preceded by a private English-style office where an old Chinese table with inlays and carvings has the function of a desk. The ceiling features an ancient map of the winds. The owner’s suite is also in shades of white and blue exploring the depths of the abyss with the shape of the wall lamps and the textiles with marine knots prints and a white Tai Ping soft carpet with prints from ancient rugs. The open terrace overlooking the sea, a very private area designed for moments of relaxation with absolute privacy, has become a distinctive mark of the CRN brand. The area reserved for the owner comes with a full beam spacious bathroom with a large Jacuzzi and a separate shower cubicle. Finally, a very modern and professional galley for haute cuisine is situated on the main deck itself. The lower deck has a more classic old English navy style: a journey to distant times evoked by the ancient maps which adorn the mahogany walls.
The guest cabins are in shades of gold and white with twin beds and marble bathrooms featuring symbols of the ancient East. Symbols of prosperity and good luck are also present in the bathrooms of the two VIP cabins with double beds which pick up the same main prints on the navy blue bedspreads. The bow of this deck has 6 double cabins and a crew mess that can host 14 members and has an adjacent laundry area. A big door connects the crew mess directly to the embarkation of the galley. A play of evocative patterns and symbols, a treasure of an ancient and distant culture, appear in all areas. The sky lounge of the upper deck recounts these details in an ancient and precious Chinese rug. The spacious hall on the upper deck, conceived as a covered extension of the external cockpit, features the cheerful and colourful theme of the Coral Sea, animated by coral reefs and very rare corals that adorn the area and are picked up again in the decor of the lamps and the curtains embellished by matching hand-made tiebacks. Behind this spacious conversation area, with its Venetian silk sofas embellished by the crystals of the cushions, is an original playing area with marble tables designed by the owner featuring the 4 symbols of the playing cards.
Outside is a dining table for 12 with delicate inlays of marine figures and two sitting areas with typical blue and white sea coloured cushions. In the middle of this deck there is a Vip guest cabin with a double bed, with white and blue shades and a big silk bedstead whose designs are also reproduced in the fringes of the bedspread. To go towards the bow one crosses the magnificent foyer with its ancient Chinese works of arts and matching sofas reaching the ultramodern wheelhouse with an adjacent radio room and the captain’s cabin.
Open spaces and outdoor living areas are given special attention by CRN who was the first to introduce the concept of a terrace overlooking the sea which finds its best expression on the “Blue Eyes”: with its folding door it can be transformed into a wonderful beach club of 60 m², with sofas, deck chairs and leisure areas that enliven the area, a friendly space par excellence. At the back is a garage that accommodates two 7.5m tenders DARIEL with a lateral opening and an engine room with an adjacent control room. “Blue Eyes” is powered by 2 Caterpillar 3512B engines that can reach a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum of 15. The vessel is classified in the top class Lloyd’s Register of Shipping and complies with the applicable MCA regulations.
