The reference point for offshore sailing boats.
World premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival, 12-17 September 2023.
The CNB 78 redefines the off-shore sailing yacht with crew. From her predecessor, she takes on the same style and functionality but now offers even brighter, larger spaces where every detail has been designed for the pleasure of being aboard.
CNB 78 is the successor to CNB 76. It is an evolution rather than a revolution. We have kept all the criteria of the ideal yacht for voyages:
The water-line length of less than 24 m to explore the coastal waters.
The ability to be managed by a reduced and permanent crew.
The forward owner’s cabin and the aft longitudinal garage.

Magnificent & easy sailing
The aft section is the crew’s domain with a professional standard galley and a chart table all integrated in the immediate vicinity of a double cabin. The saloon is an extension of the cockpit; the glass aft bulkhead and the panoramic roof reinforce the feeling of freedom, enhanced by a subtle balance between wood, lacquered surfaces and textiles.
Guests will enjoy two double cabins of equal size, while the owner’s suite is worthy of a 90 foot yacht, occupying the entir e area forward of the mast. Her purposeful lines combined with a wide and powerful hull thanks to its two chines inspired by the world of ocean racing promise great performance.
The CNB 78 combines the experience of CNB and the knowhow of Solaris to create a modern and seaworthy yacht made to explore and conquer all oceans.
I was particularly pleased that the Solaris group wanted to continue the specific style of the CNB’s that we designed and created for the 76: this is recognition of the remarkable success of this model.
The new range, and the 78 in particular, are in the same vein: both classic and innovative, resolutely contemporary, elegant, bright, comfortable and above a joy to live with. She benefits above all from the opportunities offered by her new hull, which has enabled us to achieve unequalled improvements in volume and perceived space, particularly in the forward area.
The CNB 78 proposes 4 cabins: a master suite and 2 equivallent guest cabins with double beds, the portside one can be divided into 2 twin beds. Plus a crew cabin for a couple and an optional pullman bed for a third crew member.
The master suite can be equipped with a rear-facing bed and a desk or a front-facing bed and an additional sofa.
