Superyacht news from Bachmann Yachts All about the Couach 38 metre Explorer Yacht
Recently announced as a new ‘yacht without borders.’
Following the release last November, of the first concepts for its Lounge Collection range of explorer yachts, Chantier Naval Couach has now revealed the innovative features of the 38-metre concept in the range, drawn by the company’s in-house designer Clement Carbonne.
The 3800 LOUNGE yacht design draws upon the qualities of reliability and stability for which Couach’s military vessel pedigree is known, but the range’s overarching theme is nevertheless a refined and timeless one of French savoir-faire that typifies its luxury yachts.
Carbonne has created a yacht without borders, both in terms of its cruising capabilities and how life is experienced on board, with an inside-outside approach. There is no better space that typifies this than the open-plan salon-dining area, which has floor-to-ceiling windows that let light and views of the surroundings flood in, giving the sense of being in a seaside villa, and to “see and not be seen”. This is a feature that is not often realised on a yacht of this length, and is usually reserved for much larger superyachts.
The designer’s aim is for the owner and guests to forget they are on a yacht, and instead to focus on the luxurious amenities and environment. It has resulted in a modern and uncluttered living space that reflects how owners live ashore, translating it to the unique marine surroundings.
As with all Couach yachts, there is a great deal of flexibility when it comes to the interior fit-out, which is custom-made by 300 in-house Couach craftsmen. The 3800 LOUNGE concept can be fashioned to fit a client’s preferences and desires on any manner of finishes and layouts.
A remarkable feature, and a first in yachting, is the 3800 LOUNGE’s glass beach club door to the aft of the lower deck, which allows the space within to be used by guests as a relaxed viewpoint while underway, with the unique perspective of the yacht’s wake and horizon beyond. This surprising concept is one of the most attractive features of the 3800 LOUNGE.
“I think it’s a shame to propose a space dedicated just to bathing, as all other brands do with a beach club. The rest of the time it is ‘lost’; it is not used. The idea was to allow owners to maximise the beach club, both the bathing area and the lounge area. This place is now always accessible,” says Carbonne.
The 3800 LOUNGE exterior design includes a very large and fully customisable flybridge, with options to include a wet bar and kitchen station, Jacuzzi, lounging area and dining space. There are also two garages, for tenders and toys, to further explore the exotic waters in which the yacht may cruise.
