Chantier Naval Couach has launched the second superyacht in its 5000 Fly range. The vessel is the first superyacht project at Couach since the launch of the first 5000 Fly, La Pellegrina in April 2012.

In contrast to La Pellegrina the 49.9m superyacht had an extended upper deck to accommodate a table and seating for 14 guests, and a private covered area on the Flybridge.

The vessel was also the subject of a series of acoustic tests by Couach’s in-house team, in which the yard identified a new mounting method that has ‘significantly’ reduced noise and vibration levels in the living spaces.

The Cayman-flagged yacht has a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24 knots. At 12 knots, here range is said to be 2200 nautical miles, enabling transatlantic crossings.

Following sea trials the yacht will be delivered to her owner in May 2014.
