Design and functionality
The hull of the CNB 66 was designed with speed through the water as a priority, while retaining the offshore seakeeping qualities essential for long cruises and short-handed sailing. The vertical stem, aft chine, twin rudders and bowsprit provide a high level of performance. At the same time, the many windows, flush deck, panoramic saloon, the garage for a 3.25 m tender (which can be launched or recovered in less than a minute, as on the CNB 76!)… afford a degree of comfort apparent when you live on her.
A dual-purpose cockpit
Since the success of the CNB 76 (16 boats built since 2014), the organization of a single-level cockpit, separating the operating area and relaxation area, as well as an asymmetric companionway enabling an increase in the size of the relaxation space, have become key elements of a CNB yacht. To innovate further in respect of movement flows, we have reduced the difference in level between the cockpit and the deck in order to facilitate access. A difference of a few centimeters between the cockpit and side decks provides easy evolution. Movement becomes straightforward and more convenient.
An innovative interior layout
The CNB 66 adopts the same principles as the CNB 76: the asymmetric companionway facilitates communication between the saloon and galley. The chart table between the galley and dining area is multi-purpose and can be converted as desired into a bar, desk or navstation. This is the result of many discussions with sailing owners, seeking to optimize space while adapting to new styles of living and sailing. Being outside while inside was a seminal issue. With 270° panoramic glazing and huge portholes, it is impossible to take your eyes off the sea! As for the sofa area opposite the dining table, it gives an incredible impression of space. Moreover, its seating can be converted to accommodate unexpected guests around the table!
Cabins designed for greater comfort
The standard version of the CNB 66 has 4 cabins, including an owner's suite. The latter has an off-centre queen-size island bed to provide greater privacy (the bed is not visible from the aft end of the boat when the cabin door is open). It has a bathroom and a desk. The VIP cabins are not neglected. They have double or bunk beds and it is possible to convert the double beds into 2 singles.
What our customers say
Having recently retired I wanted to realise a long held dream to have my own boat. However my wife felt very unsure about it. We visited the Southampton Boat Show to get an idea of what would suit us. The following day we visited Swanwick Marina to see what was available for sale. We visited Sea Ventures and explained that we wanted a motor day boat and also that my wife was very nervous about it. The guys at Sea Ventures were very relaxed and happy to give us help and advice without any pressure in particular providing reassurance to my wife. We decided to purchase a Merry Fisher 605 which they had in stock having negotiated a few extras. We were very surprised on the day of the handover that they had allocated someone (Rob) to be with us all day providing a full technical briefing on the boat and then accompanying us on our first voyage from Swanwick to Gosport marina during which we covered and practiced boat handling skills. My wife and I would like to thank Daryl who understood our requirements and recommended the right boat, Chris who looked after us during the sales process and Rob who taught us a lot during the handover day. If you have never owned a boat then the guys at Sea Ventures will help you make the right choice without the pressure. Neil & Lorna
