CRN Launches the First Superyacht with a Floating Garage

We bet you like boats. And we are pretty sure you love a well built garage. Well how about a boat with a garage in it. Yeppers – you heard us right. Welcome to your new super yacht.

CRN or ‘Costruzioni e Riparazioni Navali’ is based in Italy and has been crafting luxury motor yachts for 50 years (the anniversary is this year).  The J’Ade is their newest baby coming in at 197 feet with four decks, helipad, spa pool, Turkish bath and a gym. Then there is the ‘floodable garage’ created by the CRN Shipyard. Operated hydraulically, the garage can dry out in three minutes flat and is lit by underwater lights because of course your garage needs to be under lit  if it’s part of your super yacht. Luckily, the garage is   multi-functional (more bang for your buck!) and it can convert into a swimming pool or a beach club with the addition of a platform (that your crew would install of course). But when you do really need to use it as a garage, it handily fits a 26 foot Iseo by the classic boating company, Riva. No need for a tender with this yacht, just putter out to Portofino at your leisure.

J’Ade has room for 10 lucky guests and 13 crew members and features a dining room table for 14, oval bathtub by Boffi, master suite balcony and an audio/video entertainment system that can be controlled with your iPad. Believe it or not, the yacht shown has actually already been purchased (we wish we knew by whom because we would Tweet the hell out of them), but you can custom order your own and work with CRN on creating your own piece of sea magic at a price of around 40 million Euros.

For all you engine geeks out there, the yacht has two V12 engines that make just over 2000 horsepower allowing it to reach top speeds of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.  This makes Trans-Atlantic journeys a breeze, cuz you know private jets are so nouveau.

Liam Neeson's career has been one of the most fascinating in Hollywood history. This Irish screen legend towers over his peers literally (he's 6'4'') and metaphorically (he's starred in Academy Award winners and blockbusters alike.) Neeson started out as a supporting actor in the 1980s before supplanting some of the biggest names in the industry. His rise to first-team status in the 1990s can be attributed to his unforgettable performance in Schindler's List.

Since 2011, Game of Thrones has cast a large shadow as one of the best HBO shows ever. The prequel series, House of the Dragon, also proved to be a massive hit when it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022, and it only became more popular as the weeks went on.

Now, fans are preparing for what House of the Dragon season 2 will bring. The season officially puts the realms at war between the rightful Queen of Westeros and her half-brother, who has essentially stolen the throne out from under her to become the new king. But there can only be one ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, and it's going to lead to one of the most destructive wars in the history of men and dragons. To prepare viewers for the battles to come, we're sharing everything we know about House of the Dragon season 2.

The Night Agent may not be everyone's choice to be among the best shows on Netflix, but it's in the top ten for us! The Shield creator Shawn Ryan adapted Matthew Quirk's spy action thriller, The Night Agent, for Netflix in 2023, and it proved to be a hit out of the gate. By Netflix's internal metrics, it's the sixth-highest viewed series in the history of the platform.

Those kind of numbers mean that a second season was inevitable, and Netflix made it official just over a week after The Night Agent premiered. Since the series is back in production, the details about what's coming up on the show have started to trickle out. To help you stay on top of this series, here's everything we know about The Night Agent season 2.
