Philippe Briand, Naval Architect for the Bordeaux 60
”The aesthetic design reflects reality, we wanted to build a fast boat, one that would move quickly beyond the horizon and, above all, be a pleasure to sail.”

Although today the Bordeaux 60 model is no longer in production, it remains a testament to the know-how of CNB yacht builders.
The smallest yacht in our Semi-custom line is also its oldest member and the 50 vessels of this Philippe Briand design that are sailing throughout the world have long proved its merits.
Capable of being sailed by a family crew, a reassuring oceangoing vessel with her well-proportioned hull, robustly built of infused fibreglass sandwich, she is an elegant yacht with timeless lines.Her exceptional interior volume enables numerous layout configurations, to the point of using the generous forepeak as a crew cabin or workshop.Located amidships, where the motion is less pronounced, her large galley opens onto a generous saloon bathed in light from the extensively glazed coachroof.Below, there is a true engine-room that provides access to the systems, enabling maintenance.Throughout the interior, the designer Hervé Couëdel succeeded in creating a harmonious and relaxing environment, while leaving owners the freedom to add their own personal touch.Everyone will welcome her exceptional range for her size, with no less than 930 litres of fuel and 1000 litres of water.
Efficient and safe for extended cruising, the Bordeaux 60 is also capable of satisfying the most demanding crews in terms of performance. Deep draught and the taller Hall Spars carbon mast are then the appropriate options to augment the hullqualities, as repeatedly demonstrated by the Bordeaux 60’s victories in the ARC and the Isle of Wight Round the Island Race.
