Couach Yachts

Located off the Bay of Biscay in southern France, Chantier Naval Couach builds semi-custom luxury yachts from 13.65 to 50 metres in exotic composite materials.

History of Couach Yachts

In 1897, Albert Couach founded a shipyard on Arcachon Bay and pioneered the manufacture of early marine engines. In 1946, his grandson, Guy Couach, joined the yard and began building well-received commercial and military boats. In 1962, he renamed the company Guy Couach Shipyard, and focused on building performance boats and luxury yachts in advanced composites. In 1970, the shipyard launched Aramat, one of the earliest yachts built with Kevlar composite.

The shipyard changed hands several times over the years, re-launching as Chantier Naval Couach in 2009 with the goal of entering the superyacht sector of the industry. The local industrial investor group Nepteam acquired the shipyard, informally known as Couach Yachts, in 2011.

Notable Couach Superyachts

Couach knew it had a hit on their hands with the 2007 launch of their 37-metre 3700 Fly model – five were ordered before the first hull hit the water. Featuring a Kevlar/carbon fibre/GRP composite hull and powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 M90 diesels, it provides a top speed of 28 knots, cruising speed of 25 knots, and a range of 700 nautical miles at 20 knots.

The shipyard’s flagship, the 50-metre Couach 5000 Fly La Pellegrina, debuted in 2012. Built to MCA standards, the sleek, contemporary superyacht also features a hull that incorporates Kevlar and carbon fibre. Accommodating 12 guests in six suites, including an upper-deck master, she has a maximum speed of 28 knots, thanks to her fast hull and 16V 4000 M93 MTU engines.

Specialisations

Couach Yachts offers a full range of luxury performance yachts from the 13.65-metre Hornet 1300 speedboat to the 5000 Fly, including seven Fly and two Open models. All are built in lightweight yet strong composite utilizing fibreglass, Kevlar and carbon fibre. Couach provides naval architecture, exterior styling and interior design, but owners may use their own interior designer to customise a new yacht project.
