Fountaine Pajot Motor & Guy Couach - An Unprecedented Collaboration

Create a notification for "News from the builders"

In September, one of the Couach buildings at their base in Gujan-Mestras in southwest France was completely emptied so it could accommodate the molds and tooling required for the production line. Just two months later and the site was operational, but it had involved long transports of equipment by barge from La Rochelle to the Bay of Arcachon. The first MY built on the new site is a 6, and was launched in Gujan, then moved to Arcachon for final preparations before being delivered to La Rochelle. A second powercat, an MY5, is already out of the sheds. Eventually, 40 to 60 power catamarans from Fountaine Pajot’s MY range will be built at the new facility each year. That represents 30% of the activity of Guy Couach shipyard which was founded in 1897.
