”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.”
Philippe Briand, Naval Architect for the Bordeaux 60


Centred around the saloon and the galley, the Bordeaux 60 is available with a choice of layouts that can be tailored to the owner’s individual sailing plans.
There is room in the extremely spacious forepeak for a crew cabin, workshop, or even an extra children’s cabin.
Since everyone has their own idea, CNB, together with a dedicated team, can customise the layout to the customer’s specifications.

Offshore Simple Comfortable Reliable Performance Customisable

In keeping with our reputation at CNB, the Bordeaux 60 is designed to swallow up the miles with ease.  Featuring the ideal weight distribution for secure performance in heavy seas, extremely well-equipped yet clear deck layout, exceptional autonomy (1000L of water and 930L of fuel, Volvo D4 180 hp engine,  water maker with capacity of 280L/h,etc.): the Bordeaux 60 has everything you need for a long cruise, whether sailing as a couple or with a crew.

Simple to manoeuvre

Thanks to its simple, efficient and safe deck layout, the Bordeaux 60 is also highly appreciated as it is so simple to manoeuvre even with a small crew. The Bordeaux 60 is reassuring because it is extremely easy to manoeuvre, responsive at the helm and remains impressively stable however heavy the sea swell.

All manoeuvres are controlled from the steering stations, as the sheet and halyard winches are grouped in the aft of the cockpit. In strong winds, the skipper can control the boat without having to move, using the self-tacking track forward. In light winds, fine-tuning is easy, and will not disturb any guests sitting comfortably around the cockpit table.

The engine room is easy to access

The engine room is accessed directly below the saloon floor.

Easy to move around onboard

With especially wide side decks, flush deck hatches, a limited number of steps leading out of the cockpit, direct access from helm station to the aft cleats, moving about on deck is much easier and much safer.


The spacious saloon and galley, bathed in light, is worthy of a superyacht.


The huge galley, with plenty of storage space, opens onto the saloon, making it cosier and more convivial. For greater comfort, it is located in the centre of the boat, where pitching is less perceptible.


The owner’s cabin, which many people prefer in the bow for more space and natural light, has a dressing room, a vanity table / desk, an extra-large bathroom, and silent electric toilets.

A door can be fitted in the bathroom to give safe access to the forepeak in bad weather conditions.

Pure luxury

A perfect blend of materials of colours, with the light playing on the fine woodwork, the designer Hervé Couëdel has created a harmonious and relaxing atmosphere aboard the Bordeaux 60, while leaving owners the freedom to add their own personal touch to the interiors.

The aluminium framework is a special CNB feature. Made by our own superyacht metalworkers, it also improves the Bordeaux 60’s rigidity.
Fastened inside the vacuum-infused hull, the aluminium structure ensures solidity and, therefore, safety. The keel and the mast, for example, are directly integrated into this structure.

The aluminium structure also makes access to the engine room and machinery much simpler: located beneath the flooring, these areas are thus permanently accessible and functional, leaving more space above them for your comfort and for storage.

The structural components of our yachts (hull, deck and bulkheads, etc.) are made of composite vacuum-infused materials.  This process entails homogeneously impregnating the fibre (composite and balsa sandwich), once only and so that it absorbs the resin.

Vacuum infusion:   

  • provides excellent control over the boat's weight (optimising the resin/fibre ratio)
  • is more environment-friendly and improves working conditions
  • provides consistent quality
  • provides excellent sound and heat insulation inside the boat

Philippe Briand has designed a fast hull that has proved its worth on more than one occasion. The Bordeaux 60 Osprey, for instance, has won the Isle of Wight Round the Island race three times, beating 900 other yachts.

A competitor

A number of owners have already crossed the Atlantic on their Bordeaux 60s, achieving amazingly good performances, for instance on the occasion of the ARC: 1st and 3rd place in 2008, 4th in 2011, the Bordeaux 60 has amply demonstrated is qualities as a serious competitor.

Owners looking for enhanced performance under sail will opt for a Hall Spars carbon mast (extended by 1.5m), a 2.95m lead keel, a set of carbon-fibre sails made by Incidences or North Sails, and a 275 m² spinnaker. The result: impressive speed while maintaining sensational responsiveness at the helm.


CNB and Philippe Briand have done everything to ensure that the Bordeaux 60 has the same sea-faring qualities whatever the rig configuration chosen by the owner: Full Batten rigging and a Hall Spars V boom, an extended carbon mast, in-mast furling and a vertical batten mainsail, a furling boom, genoa or staysail on a self-tacking track, and a spinnaker or gennaker… the choice of options means that everyone will find the ideal solution for their specific sailing plans.


The different keels to choose from are adapted to suit to the range of possible sailing plans.  At the request of one customer, CNB designed and made a hydraulic telescopic keel to make anchoring in shallow waters possible. This type of keel is now available as an option on all Bordeaux 60s. It is not uncommon for our customers to inspire a major development like this.


With grey or black teak joints, different colours above and/or below the waterline, a choice of colours for the rigging - every Bordeaux 60 is unique.


The Bordeaux 60 boasts all the advantages of custom superyacht expertise. Drawing on sound experience and proven equipment, the Design team devoted to the Bordeaux 60 can tailor their work to the customer’s specifications.
Many Bordeaux 60s have been custom-built for our customers.
