Apologies, but no events were found.
French shipyard Couach now has its own technical facilities in the Mediterranean after its buyout of IMS (International Marine Service) in Saint Mandrier in the bay of Toulon.
With a team of some thirty employees specialised in yacht maintenance, refits and engine replacement, this shipyard is the ideal technical solution for Couach, whose headquarters are at Gujan-Mestras on the Atlantic coast. The manufacturer can now offer its clients a maintenance centre in the area they sail in the most, a key region for motor yachting in general.
In all, Couach now has a production unit with 360 staff (Gujan-Mestras), a maintenance centre (St Mandrier) and 3 sales outlets (Beaulieu-sur-mer, Hyères and St Mandrier).
One of Couach’s key assets is its mastery of all aspects of yacht building, allowing the manufacturer to optimise production processes and costs and offer a more flexible service. This is how Couach is able to offer semi-custom yachts at prices that easily compete with mass produced products, and that are delivered within 8 to 12 months.
Their yachts are generally equipped with MAN or MTU engines, with excellent autonomy (800 to 1200 miles) and an ergonomic design that keeps crew numbers to a minimum.
As with most shipyards today, Couach is currently evolving towards a more upmarket range.
Currently, Couach model range is the following:
– 195 Fly (see our article)
– 2100 Open
– 2200 Fly
– 2600 Fly
– 3000 Fly (showed at Cannes boat show 2005), successor of 2800 Fly (see our article on Couach FIGI).
– and 2800 Open (see our article).
Like the market in general, Couach is clearly in good health. By next year, the range will have 2 new members, including the YACHT 3300 Fly announced late August.
