Is "Chopi Chopi" already delivered?
I was asking that same question earlier but no one seems to know. She should have been eversince but I haven't seen her cruising around or any delivered pics of her.
6 month for seatrails and outfitting seems to be quite long, even for a large yacht like this. Will have to wait for the MYS 2013. Maybe CRN was overtasked with this size of boat. Building a big yacht like this can tie up a lot of recources and work forces.
Well this can happen to every yard, even to top quality ones like A&R who toke 9 months from launch to the delivery of the 60m "Excellence V".
They were not necessarily overtasked perhaps the owner of "Chopi Chopi" just requested alterations, we do not know for shure...
The 9 month of Excellence V at A&R were purely Owner induced.

This is a very cool idea I think. But how long does it take to fill up the basin? I would also like to see whats underneath all that. Would they just install some kind of shore station with tie downs?
I guess I just want to understand this system a little more.
You have all the details in this article:

Quite a complex system, like all hull openings.
Thank you for sharing that with me/us. It is a cool idea and I think that would be a great way to enter the boat. I would love to watch it all in person.
I have watched them doing that in Poto Portals this year in May. They just open a valve, flood the tenderbay, the door opens and the tender drives in. The door is closed and the pumpout starts. By the noise of the pump, I could hear, it took less than 5 minutes. On the bottom of the float in tender bay are customized craddles, where the tender settles on. When the bay is dry, the tender gets secured, ready to go. It is the same principle like the much larger tender bay (or better dock) on Octopus.
Some years ago, the Bloemsma van Breemen yacht Flying Eagle had a float in tender bay too. It was located in the stern and the crew was able to walk around the tender with dry feet, when the bay was flooded. And this was only a 499 GT yacht.
Quinta Essentia(Quite Essential) - 55m Heesen also has a floating dock

CRN celebrates it's 50th Anniversary and therefore updated their website. Looks good!
is it fully completed because the 'yachts' section isn't clicking.
Keep trying, maybe entering other sections first, it ends up working. Clearly the programers have work to do here. I tried to open a video rendering of a 74 meter yacht in construction, but it didn't work:
The video above now works fine. Quite interesting all the info they give. They even show the deckplan of Chopi Chopi, my favorite CRN:
Super cool time-lapse video of one day onboard Chopi Chopi:

You got to it before me!
Her interior was recently featured. Great looking interior and good floor plan.
The 61m Saramour has hit the water.
