Philippe Briand, Naval Architect for the CNB 66:
“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.”
With her unique style, the CNB 66 redefines the concept of the large family yacht. The flowing and well-proportioned lines drawn by Philippe Briand conceal exceptional volume for an outstanding life on board. We put all our expertise to combine comfort and simplicity for sailing. Taking on the family resemblance, this 20-metre yacht reflects the values that make the reputation of CNB yachts on all the world’s oceans: quality, elegance and performance.
The CNB 66 was designed without preconceived idea, to allow us to reconsider each area by integrating all elements of modern comfort. We designed the hull lines with the triple objective of increasing the volume, performance and seaworthiness. Design features such as the beam, the aft chine, the vertical stern… are the ingredients that enable achievement of this optimum. The deck is organised to facilitate maneuvers, relaxation, security of crew and access to the sea. Yes, this yacht will sail fast and far in complete safety. With the design of the CNB 66, we wanted to eliminate constraints and give to the word freedom a nautical definition…
We have sought to design an interior as CNB as possible. CNB builds yachts that are recognized by all as seaworthy, sound yachts that are designed to sail the seven seas. These yachts also express a kind of elegance ‘‘à la Française’’, combining balance, symmetry, modesty and refinement in every last detail. In terms of life on board, this led us to create a reassuring interior, open to sharing, according to the expectations of sailors from all over the world. We wanted the CNB 66 to be at the same time graceful and innovative, light and comfortable, and above all pleasing to live in family
