What The Builders Say
Inaugurating a new-generation coachroof when she was launched, the CNB 76 revolutionised the relationship with space and the sea. Who would guess that behind these flowing lines there is more than two metres of standing headroom in the saloon, from which there is a perfect view of the outside world? Designer Philippe Briand devoted all his know-how to the CNB 76, creating a yacht of masterful proportions, suited to all roles.
Designed from the outset to be operated by a small crew, she can also comfortably accommodate a professional crew. Access to the galley and to a generous cabin by way of the cockpit affords the crew genuine privacy. Forward of the saloon, the owner has a true suite, which still leaves two very good cabins amidships for guests. This dual role is also reflected on deck: the massive guest cockpit is never obstructed by controls, which are sent back to the area around the helming stations, above the side decks.
On board, everything is treated as on a One-off: the professional fitting out of the galley, the light-filled environment and even the soundproofing of the engine room. As for the integral garage, it enables a 3.85-m tender with it’s engine to be stowed in less than a minute, an arrangement generally reserved for a 90-foot monohull. Launched in 2014 after six months of offshore trials, twenty two CNB 76s have already been built. With the luxury of her amenities and her extensive customisation options, she is the direct descendant of CNB’s One-offs.
