About the shipyard CMN Yacht Division

Company history

CMN is a French shipbuilding company from Cherbourg, Normandy. It was established immediately after the Second World War, in 1945, to manufacture military and commercial ships. Its founder, Félix Amiot, a renowned aircraft designer, inventor and at the same time a successful entrepreneur, has invested his passion in the production of innovative ships, especially military ones. In 1961, pleasure sailing ships were added to the range.

The first production boat was the 11-meter sailing Maïca, which was perfect for both cruises and competitions. Construction of custom racing sailboats began in the 1970s, including for famous French athletes Eric Tabarly and Olivier de Kersauzon. In the 1990s, as the trend towards larger yachts developed, the shipyards began building larger boats. These include the three-mast 42-meter Friday Star, one of the largest composite superyachts at the time, and the 49-meter long French Look II expeditionary boat. In 2003, a revolutionary racing yacht was launched. Mari-Cha IV 44.4 m long, built with improved carbon composites.

This boat, designed by Philippe Briand to be the most «advanced racing sailboat in the world,»managed to set a new world record.

Since 1992, the shipyard has been part of the Abu Dhabi MAR holding. The CMN team has over 350 ships built.
