Heralding the start of a new era for oldest French yacht builder Chantier Naval Couach, the company has announced a number of dynamic changes to its team, as well as a new range of yacht designs to represent a more contemporary look for the company. Couach is also working on a collaborative project with a world famous yacht designer, to be announced in the coming weeks.
As well as these team announcements, Couach has released the first details of two new concepts from in-house designers Clément Carbonne and Diane Viboud, as part of a fully revised product line. The inspiring new concepts include an adventurous new 38m explorer model with a semi- displacement hull (this first at the attached image), as well as the largest superyacht design to come from the company’s own drafting table. Couach choose to propose this displacement yacht category because Couach boats are above all made for those who require made-to-measure services, absolute comfort and love navigation. And these yachts respect Couach DNA.
Clément’s automotive-design background lends itself to his technical design role at Couach, where he collaborates with interior designer Diane. Having worked at the company for 10 years, while continuing to bring fresh ideas to Couach’s creative identity, Diane coordinates the vision of the design department with the practicalities of construction on the workshop floor.
In the coming months, more details on the new ranges will be released. In total, four new lines and a number of new models between 13m and 50m will be revealed, including a ‘classical’ line and ‘super-sport’ line from one of the most renowned superyacht designers in the world.
The new range will include more elements that are made-to-measure for clients’ tastes, with a choice in degree of customization. The yachts will continue to be built on a platform of excellent technical performance, including the comfort enhancing, planing V hulls for which Couach is known.
Couach’s new commercial and design line-up represents what the company’s owners and shareholders feel is its strongest team to date, poised to take the 120-year-old yacht builder to the next level of success and heritage.
