HISTORY IN THE MAKING


CMN has an heritage that dates back to 1912 when Felix Amiot aircraft put Normandy on the aeronautical stage.
 
Aircraft design and production gave way to shipbuilding, both commercial and military.
 
It is in the sixties that CMN started to bring their attention to the then emerging yachting market with the construction of series of sailing boats such as the Maïca, an 11-metre sailing boat designed by Illingworth and Primrose.
 
In the 1970’s and 1980’s, among other racing projects, CMN launched  Paul Ricard for Eric Tabarly and Kriter IV for Olivier de Kersauzon.
 
With the luxury yacht market expending into larger and larger yachts in the nineties, CMN undertook projects over 140’ such as the schooner Friday Star or the Expedition yacht French Look II.
 
The new millennium saw CMN Yachts launching larger motor yachts like 49m Bermie II and 43m Héloval, and sailing yachts such as 32m Attimo and 32m Lady Barbaretta.
 
Today, with the development of the CMN LINE 60 with 3 recent launches – Netanya 8, Slipstream & Cloud 9 - CMN YACHTS is becoming a powerful new bench marque in luxury yacht building.
