About this CNB 78


We are very proud to be CNB's exclusive dealer for residents of the UK and Andorra. We work closely and co-operatively with CNB and their appointed dealer network so if you are from another country with an appointed CNB dealer, we will happily make the introduction to the right person to help you understand the fantastic quality and capability of the CNB range. The fifth CNB 78 is being launched this summer and she will be available for viewing at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. The first CNB 62 will be sailing in early 2025 and we have full details and plans for the new 68 and 88 which will follow.

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.
