1972 28 Foot Couach Custom Built Ever See One

I found a 1972 28 foot custom built sloop built by Couach Yachts out of France. I can not find any information anywhere on this vessel. What I do know from being around several sloops of this size range that this vessel is well built. It has a enclosed wheel house with tiller steering in the cockpit. It has a full keel drafting four and a half feet. Plenty of head room 6 ft. A roomy head in the bow instead of a v-berth, Ive never seen this before. There are swinging doors at the compainion way with now steep steps, instead you can walk right into the wheel house and the galley and be out of the elements with plenty of room. It has a volvo two lunger inboard that runs. I think this may have been a one time custom built boat, built by a reputable builder of yachts and commercial vessels since 1897 and still putting out quality boats today. I emailed them in France 3 times yet have had no response. If anybody has any information on Couach building sailboats in 1972 please inform me if you would.

Thanks Roo
