CRN and Riva to star in Hamburg art exhibition

A 68m superyacht concept and a sculpture of a Riva tender will form the centre piece of the Hamburg exhibition

Hanseboot is over for another year, but the Hamburg boating scene hasn’t completely gone into hibernation just yet.
CRN and Riva have teamed up with one of the city’s foremost museums for a new art exhibition with a nautical twist.
Rich Pickings: Displaying Wealth is open until 11 January at Hamburg’s Museum Für Kunst Und Gewerbe and features a display called ‘The Finest Art on Water’.
This area includes concept art for a 68-metre CRN superyacht (pictured above), as well as a sculpture of the Aquariva Cento tender.
Commissioned to celebrate the 100th Aquariva built, the Cento is a limited edition 33ft model that came with twin 380hp Yanmar engines.
Luca Boldrini, sales and marketing director at CRN, explained the thinking behind the collaboration:
“Art and design have always played an integral role in all that CRN and Riva stand for and we are incredibly proud of ‘The Finest Art On Water’ and its ability to transcend a yacht from an object to a covetable piece of art.”
With bold styling from Officina Italiana Design, the display hopes to challenge art lovers and yacht aficionados alike.
As curator Christian Jankowski puts it: “The yacht is the perfect sculpture, a perfect self-contained vessel of information.”
