In terms of grace and elegance, Only Now must undoubtedly be placed in the top three of the boatbuilding yard’s One-Offs.She was designed by Germán Frers for a connoisseur looking for the best possible performance but without the constraints of a racing rating rule.
Begun in 1999, she was built in the new buildings known as Bordeaux II, dedicated to composite.At the time, she was the largest carbon/vinylester infused hull.Featuring a canting T-keel (swinging laterally) and a canard for windward performance, she is exciting to helm and incredibly well balanced.According to the Argentinian naval architect, who is also a fine racing sailor, she is one of the most beautiful sailing yachts that he has designed in the course of his prolific career.Only Now has crisscrossed the Mediterranean, participated in numerous yacht rallies and gave CNB its first international award.She also won the challenge issued to the legendary J-Class Velsheda at the Voiles de Saint Tropez, and proved, if it were necessary, her exceptional performance.
With a relatively narrow beam and a low freeboard, she is certainly not the most spacious of CNB yachts.With a three-cabin layout, the interior in wenge and limed teak is simultaneously elegant, functional and welcoming.
Capable of crossing the Atlantic or fêting her winning crew with a post-race cocktail party with the same ease, she is a high-class yacht that continues to give us pride.
