French custom yacht builder Chantier Naval Couach will be revealing a total of 20 new models, spanning five diverse ranges, over the next 18 months. Having invested several million euros in its technical facilities and workshops in Arcachon, on the French Atlantic coast, since 2015.

Couach has also made a number of strategic recruitment choices for both management  and  design departments, bringing new blood and inspiration to continue the legacy of the company, which will be celebrating its 120th anniversary in 2017.The new ranges will be known as the Mediterranean Collection, the Timeless Collection, the Super Sport Collection, the  Lounge Collection and the Super Yacht Collection.

The Mediterranean Collection incorporates three models intended to be used as a tender or chase boat: a 13m, a 15m and a 17m model. The models were originally designed to meet clients’ tender specification but Couach will be making them available to its wider client base.

The Timeless Collection designed by Espen Øino International will include six fast flybridge  yacht   models between  20  and  40-metres. The size range of the Timeless Collection  allows  yacht  owners  to  embrace  the  sweet  spot between experiencing the luxury of a superyacht, through design features and on-board crew, while maintaining a closeness to the water that can be lost on larger vessels.

The Super Sport Collection, also from the drafting board  of  Espen  Øino International, will extend to six open yacht models, also in the range of 20 to 40-metres. Much like the Timeless Collection, the Super Sport models will  draw  on  design  influences  and  the performance  of  military  ships, combining  lightness  with  power, seakeeping with maneuverability, and comfort with innovation.

The Lounge Collection, from in-house Couach designer Clément Carbonne, exemplifies modern adventure in three   semi-displacement   explorer models:  35m, 38m and 42m. With the bold lines, high freeboard and protected hull of a robust explorer yacht, the Lounge  Collection  marries comfort and luxury with the spirit of adventure. The large, open living spaces – such as in the full-deck living-dining room with enormous windows, and wide-beam upper deck with dining and seating areas – provide a true inside-outside style of living for those onboard.
