At first glance, the CNB 76 sail yacht NEYINA looks like many other Virgin Island yacht charter vessels. Upon a closer look, you realize this yacht is anything but ordinary. Imagine a real luxury yacht package in a reasonable size. Legendary naval architect Philippe Briand has created a yacht that is both safe and efficient, thanks to the seaworthiness qualities of her hull and her simple, efficient deck layout. Contemporary, with fluid exterior hull and cabin-top lines, the sleek yacht NEYINA CNB 76 is truly a 21st century yacht.
The joy of a yachting vacation onboard S/Y NEYINA is aptly described by a quote from Briand, the architect: “Sailing on a fast, reliable yacht makes you want to go further, to leave the third of the planet where we are on solid ground and explore the other two-thirds.” Indeed, the layout of the CNB 76 seems perfect for charter – a huge salon with panoramic view; large, open-air cockpit; and independent crew cabins far removed from the guests cabins.
The accommodations, by interior designer Jean Marc Piaton are fashionable, relaxed and functional. Piaton describes the yacht’s interior as, “Classic and innovative, graceful and contemporary, light and comfortable, and above all pleasing to the eye and to live in.” The salon is bright and modular, and boast more than 6 and a half feet (2 meters) headroom, and panoramic views of the horizon, even when seated.
With flexibility in mind for families, the portside cabin can convert from two twin beds, into a large double bed. A starboard cabin can be arranged with two bunk beds, or the lower bunk can be converted into a double bed.
Located forward and isolated from the noise of life on board, the master cabin is peaceful and bathed in light, thanks to numerous opening deck hatches and portholes. A nice feature – the queen-size bed faces forward, to keep privacy even when the door is open. It also creates a huge impression of space, similar to the layout of a master cabin on a much larger yacht.
All cabins have ensuite bathrooms.
Unique among sailboats of this size is the large maneuvering area, aft of the cockpit and clearly separated from the living spaces. Here, the crew can “sail” the yacht from twin helming positions with maneuvering winches and electronic controls within easy reach – comfortably removed from the guest cockpit seating area. This forward seating area is welcoming, safe and comfortable. A large extending table offers two positions (dining or sunbathing) and can be shielded from the sun by a retractable Bimini canvas, hidden in the roof.
CAT-I-TUDE: CNB also Builds Beautiful Catamarans. THE CURE
Sometimes, first-time charterers are hesitant to rent a private yacht that is not a motoryacht. They assume a sailboat is not fast and certainly not dry, like most motoryachts. Thankfully, the CNB 76 is the exception. The Briand designed hull is fast and powerful. It features an ultra-modern design with aft chines, a sharp, vertical bow, and high freeboards. In layman’s terms, it means a comfortable and fast ride, even in choppy seas.
