Guy Couach 35m tour: This €2m superyacht is a thing of rare beauty

Nick Burnham shows us around a fascinating superyacht built by Guy Couach in 2000 and refitted in 2017.

Pozitron is not your typical superyacht. For one thing, she was built by French yard Guy Couach, which makes her something of a rarity, and her layout isn’t exactly what you’d expect from a 35m either.

In this video, filmed in pre-COVID times at the 2019 Cannes Boat Show, Nick Burnham shows us around her light and airy interior, which was overhauled in a 2017 refit.

The first thing that hits you when you step inside is how spacious and contemporary the interior is. This is partly due to the clever layout, with a central elevator that lets you reach all three decks in no time at all, as well as a starboard staircase.

There’s a spacious cabin forward on the main deck, but this isn’t even the master cabin – that honour is reserved for the full-beam suite on the lower deck.

Enjoy the tour…

Suzuki launches first 115hp and 140hp drive by wire outboard engines

Suzuki claims that its new mid-sized 115hp and 140hp outboard engines are the first in their class to offer all the advantages of drive-by-wire technology.

Traditionally, mid-size outboard engines have been controlled by cables that physically push the throttle and gear shift actuators as you move the lever (usually by means of encased steel cables).

With drive-by-wire technology, often referred to as fly-by-wire, the throttle and shift controls send electronic signals down wires that then instruct the electronics at the engine end to do your bidding.

It’s a system commonly used on powerful inboard engines and increasingly on top of the range outboard engines of 200hp or more. However, this is the first time it has filtered down to more modest outboard engines of less than 150hp.

The advantages are two-fold. Firstly drive-by-wire makes for far easier rigging by the manufacturers, who only have to route wires rather than plotting a cable run that will bind if bent too tightly around a corner or curve. But perhaps more importantly for the end user, the result is precise and super-smooth throttle and gear shift controls.

Important though these new changes are, there are a raft of other improvements. An upgraded compression ratio of 10.6:1 helps these new 2.0 litre displacement outboards achieve better top speed and acceleration by improving thermal efficiency. Fuel efficiency has also been increased compared to Suzuki’s existing DF115A and DF140A models.

Suzuki says that factory testing has demonstrated as much as 5%–7% better fuel efficiency for the DF140BG across mid-range to high-end cruising speeds. The new DF115BG has demonstrated up to 5% –6% better fuel efficiency at cruising speed.

A 40 A alternator on both models delivers improved output and battery charging performance at low idle speeds — ideal for craft with lots of electronics.

And a redesigned cowling incorporates a new air intake structure with improved water separation and a silencer/resonator system to attenuate engine sounds and provide a more pleasant boating experience at all engine speeds.

Suzuki has also made it possible to replace the oil filter simply by removing the upper engine cover, making routine servicing easier. A new oil-spill catcher surrounding the oil filter mount allows you to change the filter without making a mess. Suzuki has also added an easy-access Water Detection Fuel Filter to help protect the engine against contaminated fuel.

They are available in 508mm (L) and 635mm (X) shaft lengths and will be available to order at the end of this year. Prices for the new engines have yet to be announced.
