Announced in 2017 on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of CNB or Construction Navale Bordeaux, the CNB 66 is the spiritual successor of iconic CNB boat models like the Bordeaux 60 and the CNB 76, with whom she shares some of the signature design elements implemented by the celebrated naval architect Philippe Briand.
The 20.61-meter-long CNB 66 sits comfortably at the intersection of premium performance, seaworthiness, and generous volumes. While her graceful exterior—highlighted by flowing and well-proportioned lines—initially conceals her delightfully expansive interior, one would soon realize that she doesn’t want for space.

Her spacious outdoor saloon can comfortably sit a large family, and the large modular dining table in the middle can be quickly converted to a coffee table or a sunpad, depending on your current needs. Aft of the boat, there is a wide and practical transom that allows passengers easy access either to a tender vessel or to the sea, should they desire to go swimming, snorkeling, or diving.
