Couach – first photos of Hornet – new tender from the oldest French yard

Hornet to be launched to the press and public at the Cannes Boat Show from 10th to 15th September 2013

Couach creates the surprise at this fall’s 2013 Cannes boat show and goes where it is not expected: the shipyard will launch a high-speed, 13 metre day- boat brimming with personality and technical prowess. We would not necessarily have expected to see Couach, the constructor of 20 to 50 metre pleasure yachts, in this domain. Yet who better to design a high-performance day- boat than a shipyard that has been supplying customs and marinas throughout the world for decades? Besides motor yachts, Couach also designs and builds a range of professional civilian and military boats, recognized for their high level of technicality (going by the name Plascoa). The idea was simple but audacious! Teams from the shipyard and designer Franck Reynaud tackled the task of transforming the Plascoa FIC (Fast Interceptor Craft) into an aggressive, high-tech pleasure boat. The result is remarkable, and will appeal to the virile nature of those who get a kick out of extreme sensations and ultimate playthings.

Hodgdon Yachts delivers two more tenders

13130084-2

This pair of 8.5m beauties was designed by Andrew Winch Designs of London, with naval architecture and engineering by Hodgdon’s own in-house engineering team. The pair was specially engineered and constructed using infused epoxy carbon fibre construction to meet the client’s demanding weight requirements.

The limousine tender features the exceptional craftsmanship and sophisticated systems engineering that Hodgdon is so well known for.  Outside, a defining characteristic of the AWD design is a compound curve teak clad transom exceptionally executed. Inside, the full wood raised panel teak joinery interior features separate lavatory and wash basin lockers with luxury leather seating for up to 8 guests. Systems highlights include NEMA 2000 systems integrated iPad in the salon, electrically retracting glass moon roof, electrically retracting glass aft bulkhead, hydraulically lifting roof, lithium ion smart battery system and more.

The open tender, a companion to the limo tender, features open seating for 12, a retracting hardtop over the helm (for clearance into the mother ship tender garage) and a special AWD-designed and Hodgdon-engineered retracting bow ramp for beach and shore-side guest boarding convenience. Both tenders are in transit to a significant shipyard in Holland where they will join the mother ship launching soon.
