As a subsidiary of CMN, JMV Industries is specialised in the construction in pre-preg hi-tech composite (carbon laminates and nomex honeycomb) of high-tech racing yachts and multihulls.

CMN – Constructions Mécaniques de Normandie – is a French shipyard located in Normandy (Cherbourg) which builds the largest and most luxurious yachts in France. The shipyard employs approximately four hundred skilled workers covering the various specialities required for the construction of luxury yachts or navy ships. Since the foundation of CMN in 1945, over 350 vessels in wood, aluminium, steel and advanced composite materials have been delivered. CMN also has an office located in the centre of Paris, and one in the South of France.

CMN is able to build or refit sailing and motor yachts up to 70m. The construction is done entirely under sheltered halls (48 000 sqm of covered facilities), on a total surface of 110 000 sqm.

The site has significantly sized building sheds, one of 161m x 22M, and another of 80m x 22m.

The yachts can be launched by:

  • a slipway for yachts under 700 tons
  • a 3000 ton Syncrolift (lift area of 32m x 90m)

Project 803

CMN Shipyard, the home of excellence and French flair for luxury products, is proud to introduce “Project 803”. This is an exciting venture that provides the opportunity to possess a superyacht, built to a proven formula but awaiting the individual stamp of an owner.

After the launching of the 58m ‘Netanya 8’ in 2007, CMN has developed in cooperation with Andrew Winch Designs a new range of motor yachts, the CMN Line 60 with two units launched in 2009: ‘Slipstream’ & ‘Cloud 9’.

Since their launches, MY Slipstream and Cloud 9 have cruised around the world extensively and have each covered more than 40,000 nautical miles and have been awarded 6 times:

  • Nymphenburg prize of Best design attending the Monaco Yacht Show 2009
  • International Superyacht Society (ISS) (2): Best motor-yacht in the category 40-65m / best interior (all categories, sailing yachts and motor-yachts over 24m)
  • Showboats awards (3): The best exterior design and styling (MY Slipstream & Cloud 9) / The best interior recreational area (MY Cloud 9) / The best crew and service spaces (MY Slipstream)

The launch of Slipstream and Cloud 9 megayachts confirms CMN’s place in the refined world of French premium luxury brands.

The latest model “Project 803”, currently under construction at the yard, is scheduled to be delivered during summer 2014. The Project shares the naval architecture and technical developments of the CMN Line 60 yachts Slipstream and Cloud 9.

“Project 803” accommodation includes a large Owner’s suite with a panoramic lounge on the fore deck, a VIP suite with a private balcony and open close panoramic dining room on bridge deck, a gymnasium / massage room or staff cabin on bridge deck, and 4 double Guest cabins on lower deck.

CMN has developed different exterior and interior styles for “Project 803” with high profile designers, allowing full flexibility for the future customers.
