The new range from this famous superyacht name comprises the 13m Hornet tender, the 2300 (fly and open), the 2600 fly, the 3300 fly, the 3700 fly, the 4500 fly and the 5000 fly (La Pellegrina). And it also includes a new 26.5-metre motor yacht, now under construction at Gujan-Mestras in France. But it’s the Couach 2600 FLY that is causing the biggest stir…

Couach 2600 Fly

Due for delivery in 2013, the 2600 is designed by Exequiel Cano-Lanza and the in-house team and built from a strong Glass Kevlar/Carbon compound. Its lines offer very modern and overtly sporting aesthetics, with a series of large portholesenabling very generous natural light inside. The interior accommodates eight guests in four staterooms on the lower deck, with a full-beam master cabin amidships and three further cabins (a VIP, a double and a twin) forward. There are also two independent crew cabins positioned aft, capable of catering for four people.

Powered by either twin 1,800hp MAN engines or twin 1,900hp Caterpillars, the top speed is expected to be in the region of 32 knots with a cruising speed of 22 knots and a range of between 700 and 1,000 nautical miles. See Couach for more.
