The services

Bespoke ongoing support

The acquisition of a yacht is not limited to the purchasing decision.It is the fruition of a project and the entrance into a world, that of our boatbuilding yard, where we have developed an entire owner support process, be they newcomers or already members of the CNB family.
The connection is first established during the specification of the yacht and her options, a good time to discuss funding solutions.Once the purchase decision is made, a project manager is made available by CNB.He acts as an intermediary between the customer and the design office throughout the build, manages yard visits, assists in specifying the fitting-out and equipment…During this phase, support incorporates aspects as varied as the search for a berth, for a crew, the possible implementation of a managed charter programme as well as technical and practical training.One month before the launch, the owner and crew are invited to Bordeaux to familiarise themselves with the location and prepare for the delivery week, so that this occasion combines efficiency and pleasure.
Then comes the day of departure, but CNB’s support does not end there.A worldwide network of professionals is ready to assist if required.At the boatbuilding yard, we also have a competent mobile team specialising in each of our models.

Sea trials

There are many opportunities to try out a CNB yacht and experience sailing on board one of them.This is the best way to discover the build quality, to understand the constant attention paid to the details of our yachts.
We organise sea trials, in particular in the Mediterranean:during the Cannes Yachting Festival, at the Voiles de Saint-Tropez, and in Palma in the spring.These half-day trials enable a full assessment of the boat:under sail, manoeuvring in port, anchoring, launching the tender, not forgetting all aspects of comfort on board…
Our very international customer base also enables us to organise sea trial sessions throughout the world each year.Newport, Istanbul, Sydney… there is no shortage of dream destinations to acquaint yourself with a CNB yacht!
If you wish to arrange a sea trial, please contact us.
