Jean-Marc Piaton, Interior designer of CNB 76:
“”We have tried to make a boat that is as CNB as possible … a kind of elegance in the French, made of balance, symmetry, measure, refinement in detail.””
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?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 couple of 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 sidedecks.
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 its 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, seventeen 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.
CNB 76 FROM CUSTOM TO SEMI-CUSTOM
The quintessence of CNB’s 30 years of excellence Seaworthy, elegant, efficient, comfortable and easy to handle, the
CNB 76 embodies 30 years of CNB excellence. With her superb proportions and a unique elegance signed by talented, world famous naval architect Philippe Briand, her lines perfectly integrate a raised saloon, ideal when sailing as well as at a mooring. The layouts are as harmonious as they are comfortable and truly functional. Conceived by interior designer Jean-Marc Piaton, they can
accommodate a professional crew whose presence and activity shall by no means disturb the owner’s and his guests’ privacy.
The CNB 76: A luxury yacht to explore the seven seas with total peace of mind.
Designing the CNB 76, we wished to create a safe and fast yacht, which makes you want to sail long distances in total confidence. 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. Elegant and seaworthy, the CNB 76 is the fruit of all our superyacht expertise. Safe and efficient, thanks to the seaworthiness qualities of her hull and her simple, efficient deck layout, the CNB 76 is also very welcoming with her large interior spaces which directly connect with the outside. Open onto the sea with the panoramic views that her raised saloon offers, the CNB 76 has been designed to be as good when sailing as when at a mooring.
We have sought to design an interior as CNB as possible. Through the years, I have learnt to understand CNB’s identity and specific personality. CNB builds yachts that are recognized by all as seaworthy, sound yachts that are designed to sail the seven seas. But CNB yachts also express a kind of elegance ‘‘à la Française’’, combining balance, symmetry, modesty and refinement in every last detail. In terms of design, this led us to create a reassuring interior, which reveals the yacht’s modern, robust qualities. We wanted it to be at the same time classic and innovative, graceful and contemporary, light and comfortable, and above all pleasing to the eye and to live in.
