A repeat customer of Codecasa has ordered the largest megayacht in its open-style series of motoryachts, a Codecasa 50s. Delivery is set for 2013, at which point the 164-foot (50-meter) megayacht should turn more than a few heads on the water. That’s because she’s expected to achieve a 28-knot top speed at light displacement.
While the yacht is simply being referred to as hull C. 120 for now, her owner previously commissioned an open yacht from Codecasa. She’s Framura 2, a Codecasa 45s. The “45” designates her LOA in meters, which is the equivalent of 147’6”. Framura 2 was delivered in 2010. The 45s was previously the largest of the open series, which also includes the Codecasa 35s and Codecasa 41s.
Like her smaller sisters, the new Codecasa 50s bears naval architecture by Andre Bacigalupo. The all-aluminum yacht will be powered by triple 2,600-hp MTUs, paired with KaMeWa waterjets and a KaMeWa booster. Even at cruise, hull C. 120 should achieve good numbers. Codecasa says a light-displacement best cruise of 18 knots is expected. (Light displacement will be 250 tons, while full displacement will be 270 tons.) The yacht will further meet ABS classification standards.
Inside, Della Role and a designer of the owner’s choice are collaborating. Decor details have not been released. However, the owner’s suite will be accompanied by three twins, a double, and a VIP stateroom. Common areas should be comfortable, given the 30’5” (9.3-meter) beam. Crew will be treated to four twin cabins; as is typical, the captain will have a double stateroom.
