Couach launch 49.5m 'La Pellegrina'
French yard Chantier Naval Couach have formally launched their biggest superyacht to date, the 50m La Pellegrina, the first Couach 5000 Fly. She touched water in the bay of Arcachon in front of 3000 guests.
Entirely built in Glass Kevlar with Carbon reinforcement by infusion process, this 495gt vessel only weighs 290T and is able to cruise in amazing comfort at a maximum speed of 28kts in heavy sea conditions. The exterior lines are designed by Couach and the interior is by Jean Pierre Fantini. She features three decks, with six cabins for guests.
Final delivery to her owner is scheduled for the last week end of May in the port of St Tropez, during which time the shipyard will organise a three day private preview for clients and brokers. The yacht will start its charter season in July 2012 and will then be showcased during the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2012.
