Couach’s 120th anniversary
The Arcachon-based company launched the fifth unit of 2300 FLY model
This elegant and sporty 23-metre, fast-planing yacht features a composite hull, superstructure and flybridge. The 2300 FLY model remains one of the most popular in the shipyard’s stable, and the latest launch continues its legacy. The timeless, discrete design is characteristic if the Couach pedigree, with a focus on performance. She is undoubtedly one of the best Couach yachts to have been produced to date, as was testified by many of those attending the launch ceremony. Couach’s Project Manager for the yacht, Pascal Boyer, commented at her launch: ‘This yacht always surprises me; she is surely one of the best Couach boats, and her seaworthiness is excellent.’
The yacht has a beam of 5.37 metres and a draft of just 1.50 metres, and fully loaded she has a displacement of 50 tonnes. She features zero-speed gyroscopic stabilisers for guest comfort at anchor, and has twin MAN 12V 1400 diesel engines providing a cruising speed of 24 knots and a top speed of 34 knots.
One of the most attractive things about the 2300 model, says Couach’s CEO Walter Ceglia, is the fact 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 who want to spend their holidays in complete privacy. ‘The 2305 FLY is a very beautiful vessel with a serious presence,’ added Ceglia. ‘She combines the comfort of a yacht with exceptional seafaring capabilities. She cuts through the waves.’
