New CNB 78

€3.440.000 plus options


The CNB 76 was our favourite yacht, she was an outstanding success for CNB with 32 being built. It takes something exceptional to improve on the 76 but CNB has delivered. The new CNB 78.

The new CNB 78 takes the elements that made the 76 such a compelling proposition and improves upon them. The DNA remains but has evolved with even better sailing performance and yet more space created in what we believe is still the class-leading four-cabin layout.

Quality and execution are outstanding. We believe anyone looking for a yacht between 70 and 90 feet should take a close look at the CNB 78 before making a decision.

The following spec is an example only and contains some standard options which are included in the base price as well as some options. If you would like to receive the full pricing information and full options list, do not hesitate to enquire. We have had the pleasure of selling sailing a number of the 76s with different set ups both while cruising and in the annual owners events organised by CNB so are able to guide and advise.
