Two projects usher in 120th year for French yacht builder


French custom yacht builder Couach is marking the start of its 120th year with the completion of two projects: The fifth unit of its 2300 FLY model was launched in March and being prepared for delivery, and the 4400 FAST FLY project recently was delivered.

The 2305 FLY is a 75.5-foot yacht that features a composite hull, superstructure and flybridge. She has a beam of 17.6 feet, a draft of just under 5 feet and a displacement of 55 tons fully loaded. She features zero-speed gyroscopic stabilizers for guest comfort at anchor, and has twin MAN 12V 1400 diesel engines providing a cruising speed of 24 knots and a top speed of 34 knots.

The 4400 Fast Fly is a fully customized 147-foot yacht that was delivered to her owners in time for the summer season. Sister ship to M/Y La Pellegrina and M/Y Belongers, the 4400 Fast Fly has a composite hull and flybridge, is equipped with zero-speed gyroscopic stabilizers, and has a cruising speed of 17 knots and a top speed of 24 knots. All interior and exterior design, as well as naval architecture, was carried out in-house at the shipyard in France.
