The CNB86 ‘Spiip’...

Recent Launches

Philippe Briand-designed, this ali-hulled/composite-superstructured beauty launched at Groupe Bénéteau's CNB operation in Bordeaux in October ’09. Her photo-shoot was completed just recently. Check out these pics.

MARCH 2010

Aesthetically she shares much the same DNA as previous Briand-drawn CNBs. There is a reasonable freeboard and low-profile coachroof. Her owner previously had the CNB77 Spip.
She has been designed for performance. The waterline length is close to the maximum, thanks to an almost plump bow. Vertical hull sides ensure good upwind speed. She has 385m² of upwind sail area and her lift keel varies her draught from 2-4m (6ft 6in-13ft).
Her colour treatment is said to rebel against the cold metallic greys that have been the fashion for super-sailers for a while now. Instead she has a warm vibrant Mediterranean ambiance to match her bright ‘Mediterranean Blue’ hull.
The owner’s vision was interpreted by interior designer Jean-Marc Piaton. Her veneers are mostly oak and the rest of the decor is all about ‘holiday’ colours - pink, peach, melon, yellow, fuschia and turquoise.
Her deck saloon is bright and delivers superb views. It is a big area, more akin to the sort of space pone would expect aboard a 30m-plus rather than a 26m (86ft).
Then there are two guest cabins on either side beneath the deck saloon and forward of that finds the galley and crew cabins.
The owner’s cabin is aft.
The transom includes a 3.6m (ft) RIB tender.
We have made a special point of giving harmony to the imposing proportions of the boat. The freeboard is reasonably high and the sheer line is positioned aft. Last but not least, the coachhouse with its long windows is typical of our most recent designs.
