French superyacht-builder Couach has announced the sale of two new motoryachts and is in serious negotiations for the sale of a third vessel, the yard claims.
The two confirmed sales are for a 1100 S and a 1900 model from the new Mediterranean line, which has been completely designed and developed in-house by Clement Carbonne.
“We are delighted with the reception that our Mediterranean range has received from our client base,” says Couach president and CEO Walter Ceglia in a statement. “Our focus is and always will be on providing superb yachts that are true to Couach’s design DNA and heritage. Drawing on unmistakable hallmarks from Guy Couach’s original yachts, this range of smaller boats delivers the standards that clients have come to expect from our Couach teams.”
The 11.4m entry-level Couach 1100 S with deep-V hull is a sporty yet comfortable day boat with an efficient layout. It was created with fast cruising in mind, particularly in shallow waters such as those surrounding the small islands of Arcachon Bay near the Couach shipyard in France. The 1100 S is propelled by twin outboard engines and a fuel tank of 770 litres. Delivery is planned for summer 2018.
The Couach Mediterranean 1900 is the largest boat in the Mediterranean range and the first flybridge model. Created with the luxurious finish and chic French design for which Couach’s larger yachts are renowned, the 19.6m vessel bears the hallmarks of Guy Couach’s iconic 195 Fly yacht, of which more than a dozen are still in use today.
On the lower deck, three cabins offer accommodation for up to six guests. The full-beam ensuite master cabin features double wardrobes and a bathroom, while a VIP double cabin below the foredeck includes double wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom. The third cabin has twin beds, a wardrobe and bathroom.
Powered by twin Volvo 900hp engines, the 1900 has a 4,000-litre fuel tank. The yacht’s high fuel capacity means owners can comfortably cruise large portions of the Mediterranean on a single fuel tank without the need to stop and refuel.
Further details of the range will be released in the coming weeks, says Couach.
