Australia welcomes its first CNB 76!
There are worse destinations for a yacht than Australia. Charlotte, as the CNB 76 #6 is named, has chosen the magnificent Sydney Harbour to be her home port. Well, OK, it was her Australian owners' choice and, naturally, they are keen to take her out as soon as possible.
Following a naming ceremony held in Bordeaux last week, owners, family and friends have now set sail for a three-month cruise around the Mediterranean. Charlotte is thus en route to spend the summer in Greece.
The CNB 76 will sail to Genoa in October where she will be loaded onto a cargo vessel and shipped to Sydney, her adopted homeland.
She will subsequently be exhibited at a number of Australian boat shows in 2016.
CNB wishes this new crew all the happiness in the world aboard its new yacht, Charlotte.
