CNB yachts express a kind of elegance ‘‘à la Française’’, combining balance, symmetry, modesty and refinement in every last detail.
With a length of 76 feet (23.17 metres), the CNB 76 is a real luxury yacht but of a reasonable size, easy to handle short-handed. Safe and efficient, thanks to the seaworthiness qualities of her hull and her simple, efficient deck layout. A luxury yacht to explore the seven seas with total peace of mind. A large and fully-equipped manoeuvring area, clearly separated from the living spaces, is centred around the twin helming positions with their lateral seat close to the manoeuvring winches and electronic controls.
Bright and modular, the saloon offers more than 2 metres headroom, and panoramic views on the horizon even when seated. Located forward so as to be isolated from the noise of life on board, the owner’s cabin is peaceful and bathed in light, thanks to numerous opening deck hatches and portholes. The bed faces forward so as to keep privacy even when the door is open, and also gives a huge impression of space. The practical, refined bathroom is well insulated. It separates the owner’s cabin from the guest cabin to port and is closed to its bathroom.
The deck, the hull and structural bulkheads are built in sandwich composite using the infusion technique, with carbon reinforcements in the most stressed areas and the hull bottom, making the CNB 76 a safe and solid yacht. The weight distribution is optimized for a comfortable sailing even with heavy seas. The design of the hull, with the high freeboard and aft chine, ensures very good stability.
The rather aft location of the mastgives the CNB 76 a large foretriangle which gives the self-tacking staysail selection its full meaning and allows many foresails choices. Three different mast types are available: standard, performance (carbonfibre spar) or for in mast furling. Of course, numerous wood finishes are available for the inside cabinetwork, as well as a large choice of upholsteries and linings. Last but not least, the CNB 76 has been developed like a superyacht. The inside accommodations are designed to satisfy the expectations of the most demanding owners, whether they wish to have a crew on board or not. But the boat also benefits from CNB’s experience in “one-off” yachts construction: while relying on proven conception, construction and equipment, the CNB 76 R & D technicians remain attentive to our clients’ specific requests.
