The fourth time seems to be the charm for Codecasa. It just started construction on a new megayacht in the Codecasa 65 series.
The 213-foot (65-meter) megayacht is an entirely in-house creation. That includes the styling, naval architecture, and the interior design. So far the shipyard isn’t revealing any information on what the interior will look like, or what special amenities will be in place. However, this Codecasa 65 will include six staterooms for the owners and guests. In fact, two of the suites are owners’ suites. It’s probably safe to assume that at least one will be full beam. The Codecasa 65 has a healthy 36’7” (11.2-meter) beam and a generous volume around 950 gross tons. Eight additional cabins for the crew, along with a captain’s cabin, are aboard, too.
When the project sees delivery during the summer of 2019, she could very well cross oceans on her own. Codecasa anticipates a 5,000-nautical-mile range at 12 knots. Full speed, under light load, should be 17 knots, with twin Caterpillar engines.
To put the series into perspective, the Italian shipyard started building the first Codecasa 65 a little more than 10 years ago. That first delivery took place in 2008, and was quite high profile, too. The project was Main, belonging to fashion designer Giorgio Armani. He still cruises aboard her today. The second delivery occurred just two years later, for an owner who christened his yacht Family Day. (She’s since changed hands, now known as Eternity.) Actually, a double delivery took place that year. Codecasa handed over the third Codecasa 65 to an owner who named her Lady Lau. That yacht underwent an extensive refit about a year ago and has been cruising and chartering as Double Down ever since.
