The new CNB 62

What is the maximum size of a boat you can handle without a professional crew? At CNB Shipyard, which is now part of the Solaris Group, they started from this question to conceive a new boat, and the metric range identified was the 60′, thus the new CNB 62 designed by Philippe Briand was born.

Its predecessor, the Bordeaux 60, which pioneered in 2008, is a comfortable yacht with an innovative interior layout distinguished by a galley set amidships in front of the salon. Today, new hull shapes have gained even more volume without sacrificing performance. CNB 62 is the ideal synthesis between the comfort of a CNB 66 and the ease of use of a Bordeaux 60.

CNB 62 – Project

The command posts have been moved forward to be protected and close to the cockpit benches so they are not isolated from the guest area. All sail rigging is within easy reach of the helmsman and, crucially, a carbon bow frees the cockpit from the mainsail hoist.

The detail of the tender garage of the CNB 62

The longitudinally integrated tender garage, the only viable solution in our eyes, is another key element of the standard specification. The interior follows the philosophy of a boat designed for owners: with the forward master cabin directly inspired by our CNB 78, a salon that opens to the galley area forward, and 2 large aft cabins separated by a corridor. This layout is credited with offering a huge light-filled salon, a CNB signature, and a generous forward owner’s area that provides privacy from the guest cabins.

“We wanted to preserve the marine qualities,” said Philippe Briand, “for which CNBs have a great reputation, by developing a balanced and powerful hull combined with a sail plan adapted to its sailing profile. With taut but generous lines, it will provide interior comfort and great pleasure at the helm.

The design of the superstructures is also the result of our reflections, careful research to combine fluidity of lines with crew protection, while preserving ergonomics and functionality at an optimal level.”
