French custom superyacht builder Couach said it is celebrating the start of its 120th year with the completion of two projects.

The Arcachon-based company launched the fifth unit of its 2300 Fly model at the end of March and is preparing her for delivery. Couach also recently delivered the fully customized 4400 Fast Fly to her owner.

The 75-foot 2305 Fly has a composite hull, superstructure and flybridge.

“This yacht always surprises me; she is surely one of the best Couach boats, and her seaworthiness is excellent,” Couach project manager Pascal Boyer said in a statement.

The 2305 Fly was built for a first-time yacht owner who admired a friend’s Couach for a number of years and decided he wanted one for himself. The company said the yacht features a great deal of customization for a project of this length, particularly in relation to the general arrangement of guest accommodations.

Instead of the usual three guest cabins, the client chose to have two larger guest cabins and an additional dressing area for the owner’s suite.

One of the most attractive things about the 2300 model, said Couach CEO Walter Ceglia, is that it remains accessible to owner-operators, rather than relying on professional crew for navigation. This means that the yacht can be enjoyed directly by the family.

Launched at the end of 2016, the fully custom, fast-planing 147-foot 4400 Fast Fly was recently delivered to her owners in time to fully make use of her this summer.

“The most rewarding element of this project is the quality of finish that we have been able to achieve,” Ceglia said. “At Couach we constantly strive to progress, to make each project the best that it can be. We are always looking to renew and improve our yachts.”
