CNB yachts were founded in 1987, at a 100,000 sqm site which includes 44,000 sqm of covered buildings and 300 metres of water-front quay space. The water is deep enough to launch yachts and perform first trials. Internationally-recognised for the exceptional quality of its luxury superyachts, CNB has launched, since it’s set up, over 90 boats – be they sail or motor boats, aluminum or composite, vessels that now sail the seven seas.
Why buy a CNB?
In 1992, CNB yachts became part of Bénéteau Group. Since then, the division has all the strength of the world’s leading pleasure sailboat builder right behind it.
The Group has been a world leader for over 25 years, demonstrating a sound and reassuring financial base. This is essential for our customers who want a real partner in the construction of their yachts.
Bénéteau Group’s proven and constantly advancing industrial and logistical expertise means it will sustain its ranking as a world leader for many years to come. Due to this experience, combined with CNB’s technical skill, the various industrial processes employed at the shipyard have been optimised over the years.
CNB yachts enjoy extraordinary purchasing power hence the Industrial Group. This enables it to control costs, which directly reflects the final price.
Last, for over ten years now, Bénéteau Group has enabled CNB to make serious investments in industrial equipment, aiming, as always, to improve productivity and thus controlling costs.
Research & Development:
The Group has invested in a modern Research & Development Centre, devoted to Pleasure Sailing and to which all the subsidiaries have access. CNB yachts not only enjoys the benefits of research carried out at this centre, such as studies on composite materials but also has direct access to cutting-edge facilities for testing and validating research carried out at its own Design Office.

The CNB 66’s flowing and well-proportioned lines conceal exceptional volume, exploited with all CNB’s expertise. In and out, elegance combines with simplicity through the maximum integration of equipment and fittings.
The CNB 66 has 4 cabins, including an owner’s suite at the bow, and a more secluded cabin aft can be used for crew, guests or casual crew. The central area, with the bar linking the saloon and the separate galley, is particularly large.
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. With 1500L of water, 2500L of fuel, a Volvo D4 180 hp engine, a water maker with a capacity of 280L/h, she is ready to for you to explore the seven seas with total peace of mind.
The CNB 94 remains capable of being handled by a small crew because Philippe Briand ensured the retention of rational proportions and specifications.For enthusiasts of uncompromising performance, this boat in a class of its own is also offered in a version that is all-carbon from hull to masthead.CNB is thus offering much more than a Semi-custom, a yacht designed to accommodate the choices and desires of each of its owners.
