Unsold Couach fleet to be auctioned
by Malcolm MacLean
Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures I see, as news arrives that 24 yachts from the Couach fleet of second-hand yachts are to be sold at auction next week. Mostly trade-in boats for new yachts and mainly comprising Couach builds, the largest boat on offer is Unbelievable, a 32.6m motoryacht built by Breaux in 1969, with bids estimated to start at €150,000-€200,000.
The auction will be held under the auspices of Christian Jean Dit Cazaux and Gérard Sahuquet at the Majestic Hotel in Cannes on August 11th, starting at 20:30. August 9th and 10th have been set aside for viewing days, and this looks like an opportunity to snap up a real bargain for one or two of your clients.
