French custom superyacht builder Couach Yachts is building a new 37m flybridge yacht entirely on spec. The news was announced at last week’s Cannes Yachting Festival.

Hull number 7 of the 37m vessel is said to be well underway under the project name 3707, and delivery is expected in roughly 10 months.

“The 3700 Couach combines performance and comfort with total elegance,” says Walter Ceglia, president and CEO of the French yard. “This yacht is a perfect example of Couach’s renowned hull form that has superb seafaring capabilities in even the most difficult weather conditions. Our expert Couach teams have ensured that guests will benefit from outstanding performance at all levels, in comfort and luxury.”

Designed entirely in-house, the Couach 3707 has a full displacement of 157 tonnes and a beam of 7.3m at its widest point. The tender garage has space for a 5m tender and jet-ski.

Having been extracted from its mould, the GRP hull has been cut and the shipyard has already started assembly of the yacht. Work is being carried out on the technical systems, including preparation of the foundations for the engine installation and fitting out of the mechanical systems.

Couach has chosen a five-cabin arrangement for the yacht with accommodation for up to 10 guests, which will offer enhanced opportunities for charter as well as private use.

The fast displacement yacht has a GRP hull and superstructure, and its twin diesel MTU M90 engines deliver a top speed of 28kt and a cruising speed of 24kt.
