Chrisco, CNB 100

CNB 100 footer with contemporary lines For CNB, it has been a real challenge to build a 100’ yacht with a modern contemporary allure while maintaining the particular savoir-faire for which CNB is renown: built to sail in heavy seas as well as in the bay of Saint-Tropez.

The CNB 100, is an extraordinary yacht, with elongated lines, spacious roofs voluminous cockpit and unusual glass panels areas. Built with the desire to design an extremely fast boat born of a pure and luminous concept but with a very comfortable interior that reflects the owners taste, a European couple who appreciates avant-garde design. A life style…

In close and constant collaboration with the owner and the builder, the naval architect Luca Brenta & Co. Yacht Designers and interior designer Wetzels Brown Partners developed a yacht that will make her mark. A new challenge, as CNB likes them, that brings us into the exclusive world of contemporary yachts.

Hamilton II, CNB 117

The imagination, design and preparation required by this yacht to be formerly owned by Prince and Princess Sadruddin Aga Khan made it a fascinating experience. Hamilton II has since been partly modified and suitably laid out to become a charter yacht for her new owner. Hamilton II is one of the most wonderful boats we have ever built, marvelously proportioned with a superb rig!

The hull and the deck of Hamilton II are the biggest carbon vinylester and balsa vacuum infused sandwich structures ever created at that time. With every conceivable luxury on board, the most sophisticated electrical, hydraulic, electronic and mechanical equipment available, Hamilton II – although she is perfectly at ease in the grandest yacht clubs – has been above all designed to sail away and to be lived on the sea. Remote anchorages, regattas and long transoceanic crossings are her world. The type of boat we like to build. For connoisseurs.

The interior was designed by Andrew Winch, furnishings made of bamboo, finely underlined with leather, stainless steel and cotton. In the initial version, the CNB 117 was composed of an owner suite, three double guest cabins, and crew quarter including three double cabins, crew mess and galley. Now, Hamilton II has two guest aft cabins in place of the former master’s stateroom shown here. All cabins have en suite bathrooms as well as sophisticated entertainment and communication systems.

Infinity, CNB 95

Infinity is the second CNB 95, following Grand Bleu Vintage, the first of an important line:CNB 86, CNB 105, CNB 117. However, like all CNB one-offs, Infinity has her own distinctive features:outside, with her hard-top bimini protecting the cockpit during cruises in the cold of the far north, and inside, with wood and decorative choices that reflect the taste of her owners.

Like her elder sister, Infinity benefits from a proven concept combining modern comfort and fast cruising.

Here are the most determining elements:

To favor comfort and elegance: The saloon is raised and the large engine room is located under the floor. The space reserved for the guests as well as the spacious owners stateroom are located forward, well lit and well ventilated. The very comfortable and separate crew quarters is include two cabins a small saloon and the galley, close to the technical area. The large lateral windows, protected by shutters, provide a perfect view. The interior decoration features an elegant blending of teak, mahogany burr wood veneer and white lacquer.

The general ergonomics and performance:  the large cockpit at the deck level provides comfortable seating at anchor as well as under sail. Two steering stations placed far apart allow good visibility and create a central passage to the transom. Garage for the tender under the aft deck. Self-tacking cutter rig with shallow draft simplify maneuvers and accessibility at anchor. The carbon rigging, the shape of the ballast, the water tanks placed at the two extremities and used as ballast ensure excellent performance when sailing.

Construction: the hull and the deck of Grand Bleu Vintage are built of aluminum. This guarantees the reliability of this multifunctional yacht: she will be as efficient on long crossings as when racing during the Antigua Race Week…
