CNB 78 Overview

There is always someone special aboard a CNB. A sailor who values performance, safety and luxury. An adventure seeker who truly loves the sea.

The CNB 78 redefines what an offshore sailing yacht should be. An evolution of the CNB 76, the most successful sailing superyacht built in series, the CNB 78 takes on the same style and functionality but now offers even brighter, larger spaces where every detail has been designed for pleasure while sailing or at anchor.

A discerning yachtsman who may be considering a new Swan, Oyster, YYachts or other luxury sailing vessel should take a close look at the CNB 78 or the flagship CNB 88. There is simply nothing like it.

This is a new yacht, built to order for delivery worldwide and presented by the exclusive CNB representative for residents of North America. Congratulations to my client from Miami who purchased hull #5. Inquire for a demo sail on a sistership and to reserve the hull #6 production slot for Spring 2025 delivery, while it is still available.
