The 167-foot Aldabra is the latest Codecasa megayacht to slip into the water. She joins the likes of Regina d’Italia, Emelina, and Iliki VIII in the Codecasa 51 series, so-named for their 51-meter LOA.
When Codecasa announced that the 51-meter project was underway, it referred to Aldabra only by her hull number, C. 116. Aldabra was designed inside and out by Della Role, the yard’s in-house team. Highlights include a fold-down balcony off the master suite, a first for Codecasa. Two of the five guest staterooms include Pullmans, permitting guest head count to rise from 10 to 12.
Speaking of rising, an elevator connects all four decks aboard Aldabra. The yacht is also marked by a strong contrast between dark and light woods as well as light-tone fabrics.
Speed trials are underway. Codecasa anticipates a 17-knot top speed and 16-knot cruise, both at light displacement. Power is supplied by 2,447-hp Caterpillar diesels. Aldabra bears a full-displacement steel hull, displacing 630 gross tons.
Aldabra, who shares her name with that of an atoll in the Seychelles, will be delivered in a few weeks.
