Birth of the first Couach megayacht

Couach celebrated a great success on July 15th, with the completion of the first 50-meter hull. The French brand now takes its first steps in the Mega-Yachting market. The next stage is the installation of all technical equipment before the hull and deck assembly scheduled in October. Another major step in the construction of the Couach 5000 Fly Mega-Yacht.

The construction of this two-third infusion hull is a first in Europe for a yacht of this size. In 1970 Couach already built the first yacht in Aramat, a fibre glass/Kevlar complex, in collaboration with Du Pont de Nemours. Today, Couach comes back into the spotlight with this infusion technology, that the builder has been mastering for many years now.

For the realization of this 5000 Fly the shipyard has designed a new deep V-shaped hull and a new transom which will enable her to easily attain 30 knots. Hull tests made it possible to optimize the power necessary to reach the various stages and to minimize consumption. The hull tests revealed a range of 4200 miles at 12 knots, with consumption at 170 litres per hour.

The yacht will be equipped with a doubled stabilization system for speeds of 0 to 16 knots, and a special system to ensure the stability and comfort aboard the vessel at a cruising speed of 25 knots.

A 4000m2, 18m high building was specially erected to accommodate the hull and the assembly for the 5000. The mold for the 5000 has been readjusted in preparation of the second 5000, whith a delivery scheduled for 2010.
