The first time…

The first time I went to the CNB shipyard, I was very impressed. Indeed, when you are a lover of the sea and boats, to have the opportunity to pass the portal of the most famous luxury boat builder in France and the first manufacturer of catamarans in the world, was a moment of truth excitement … I have now been working here for almost 2 years,and I always remember that first time when I arrive in the morning and I enjoy that pleasure selfishly.
Construction Navale Bordeaux or CNB was at the beginning specialized in custom aluminum boats. The company was founded in 1987 on the banks of the Garonne river on the location of an old shipyard site named “Shipyard of the South West”. It now produces Lagoon catamarans, semi-custom monohulls and aluminum and composite superyachts. I wanted to make a tribute to this industrial site by showing you some old pictures. This company, that has developed considerably in recent years, has always maintained a human scale and is now recognized as a building site at the forefront of technology and organization in terms of production, like all Groupe Bénéteau sites.
