COUACH REVEALS DESIGNS FOR NEW 3700 SPORT MODEL

The 37-metre 3700 Sport is an eye-catching yacht that balances a sporty and assertive aesthetic with a refined French elegance that is the hallmark of all Couach yachts.  French custom yacht builder Chantier Naval Couach has released the first visuals of its newly reimagined 37-metre superyacht, which it dubs as “intelligent, modern and seductive”. As one of the company’s longstanding popular models, with six custom-built vessels having been delivered, Couach has taken a step back to assess and update the yacht’s designs in order to satisfy today’s tastes and trends. “Between presence and power, the 3700 Sport Couach is a sporty and elegant yacht. Our in-house creative and technical teams have reinterpreted its identity and design to come up with a yacht as intelligent and modern as it is seductive,” said Walter Ceglia, Couach CEO. Upholding the admired sporty and seaworthy DNA of its predecessor’s design – and indeed the overarching design philosophy of all Couach custom yachts – a new energy has been injected into the latest 3700 Sport through a lengthening of its lines and strengthening of its profile.

Lobanov Design and BMT Nigel Gee unveil spectacular superyacht Star

Lobanov Design and BMT Nigel Gee have presented project STAR. Igor Lobanov, Yacht Designer, tells how the project came about: “The initial idea of the Star belongs to Alex Malybaev from FIRMA branding agency. Alex and I exchanged some thoughts about yachting and came to the conclusion that to those outside the marine industry, all yachts look the same: It seems that modern architecture, product design and car design have no influence on yachts. Malybaev penned an idea “on a napkin” and asked me if a yacht could be like that. I looked at the sketch and set to work. The idea was so great that I wanted to prove it could become a yacht.”

Four of the six America’s Cup teams were back in practice race action on 15th May on the first day of the final week of practice racing before the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda starts on 26th May, and the results proved promising for ORACLE TEAM USA. In near perfect conditions on Bermuda’s Great Sound, Jimmy Spithill and ORACLE TEAM USA showed their intentions early on with a dominant performance against Sir Ben Ainslie’s Land Rover BAR in race one. Despite the British boat making a better start, ORACLE TEAM USA quickly found their rhythm and were clearly ahead by the second windward mark, before widening their advantage to cross the finish line over a minute ahead of the British team. Tom Slingsby, ORACLE TEAM USA tactician and sailing team manager, commented after an 8 hour day on the water:
