Continuing the success of Philip Briand’s CNB Bordeaux 60 and the larger CNB76 the CNB 66 was immediately a huge success from the moment the first hull was launched. The styling and interior layout are reminiscent of the CNB76 yet the smaller size brings a more user friendly yacht to the market just like her predecessor the Bordeaux 60. On deck the cockpit now has an offset companionway allowing a full size table to port which lowers into a sun bed, a huge open area aft around the helms with carbon steering wheels and clever seats with integrated instruments. Inside is another world, large open spaces, 4 ensuite cabins and a crew cabin or Sail locker forward. The galley is poor side aft making it very comfortable to use at sea yet open to the saloon to make it a mire sociable space. Sailing she comes alive, carbon mast options and in boom furling along with a carbon bow sprit give her a great turn of speed. Speed, Style, Space.
What We Say
Since the inception of this excellent new design we have been involved with 3 yachts, Hull #1, #3 7 #7. All different personalities and programmes yet all superb yachts and proving extremely successful in the charter market, we have chartered 100% of all the weeks we have been given to date meaning more yachts and more available weeks are urgently required. We are sure that if we are given a CNB66 with a proper charter programme we can make a huge success of this boat. The purchase price is around €2,380,000 euro for a fully kitted out and set up ready to use yacht, these boats command charter prices of €21,000 per week in the high season so a great price point to offer some good returns on investment.
What The Builders Say
Taking on the family resemblance, the CNB 66 was designed as the largest sailing yacht that could be handled by a family crew. It can be equipped with the hydraulic roller-furling boom developed in an exclusive partnership with Hall Spars. Endowed with a carbon bowsprit, her elegant lines conceal an abundance of volume, exploited with all our know-how. This is the case, for example, in the owner’s cabin, where the queen size island bed is offset to the side to remain invisible when the door is open. In the light-filled saloon that occupies the entire beam (5.50 m), the large, nearly 3-metre long sofa to starboard can be divided into three parts to increase the seating around the adaptable saloon’s massive table. As for the galley, we wished it to be practical, well ventilated, but in direct contact with the living space. Decoration and interior environments are designed by Jean-Marc Piaton and Rafael Bonet. Outside, there is clear separation between the lounging and handling areas. As on the One-offs, we have sought throughout to eliminate differences in level in order to facilitate movement without impairing safety. Finally, what sailing yacht of this size can boast a tender garage enabling the launching in less than a minute of a 3.25-metre tender with its engine? Beyond question, the CNB 66 redefines what is possible with a 20-metre yacht. No wonder that even before she was launched, seven owners from Europe, Australia and Mexico put their faith in us. “We designed the hull with the triple objective of increasing the CNB 66’s volume, performance and seaworthiness. It will be capable of sailing far afield, while still able to be handled by a couple.” Philippe Briand, architecte naval du CNB 66.
