Able to cross the Atlantic Ocean in just 10 days, the Couach 5000 Fly will be capable of reaching an impressive speed of 30 knots thanks to its first of its kind construction. The entire hull and superstructure of the yacht is reinforced with glass Kevlar carbon, which increases its durability, makes it lighter than yachts of similar sizes, and gives it the ability to cut effortlessly through the ocean waters.
