Construction Navale Bordeaux Yachts was founded in 1987 on the banks of the Garonne River in Bordeaux, France. For over 20 years, CNB has been a world leader in the boating industry due to their quality boat building. The CNB facility is located on the banks of the Garonne River on a 24,000 square meter lot containing several covered buildings and a 300 meter waterfront dock for testing and launching new models. In this facility, they create and produce over 40 premium yachts per year which has ultimately landed them a high reputation for the prestigious construction and overall design of their boats. CNB has a staff of professionals in several different areas of expertise including sheet metal workers, Veritas certified welders, electricians, shipyard sailing crews, marketing and administrative staff, among several others, which total over 250 employees. CNB yachts are known to cruise almost all of the seas and oceans in the world, as more than 80% of their production is exported.
All Construction Navale Bordeaux Yachts are carefully designed and carried out by some of the most famous names in naval architecture. In recent years, CNB created a computer database management system for purchasing and keeping track of stock, which allows for more versatility in the shipyard as well as careful planning of each model. All CNB yachts are constructed using the highest quality shaped and welded aluminum or composite construction in order to guarantee the sturdiest and most durable yacht that will last generations. There are several different models of CNB yachts including the motor yacht series which include Frers 130, Elemental, and 33m Project. There are also a number of custom yachts available, some famous names including the Chrisco, Infinity of Cowes, Spiip, CNB 105, Spip, Hamilton II, Simeron, and Grand Bleu Vintage. Finally, there is also a Semi-custom Series in which customers are able to customize features on their own in order to meet any and all needs.
