The first Codecasa 65, christened Maín and commissioned by famed designer Giorgio Armani, was handed over in 2008. Two more of the same megayacht model were delivered in 2010, namely Family Day and Lady Lau. The Codecasa 65 remains the flagship of the Italian builder’s offerings and has undergone some updates in keeping with today’s preferences.
Domenico Gozzani, stylist for Codecasa, says the goal was to combine traditional and trendy elements outside. The four-deck profile bears resemblance to the previous Codecasa 65 design. The biggest difference is the use of far larger ports on the main and upper decks. In keeping with current trends, the glass is essentially floor to ceiling. There’s further an uninterrupted expanse of glass along those same decks. Compare the rendering above to the look of Lady Lau (below), and you see the difference. Family Day had far more glass than Lady Lau, but not uninterrupted on every level.
The Codecasa 65 retains the same dimensions as the original megayacht does. LOA is 213 feet (65 meters), with beam at 36’7” (11.2 meters). Codecasa is further using the same steel hull configuration, so expect top end to be around 17 knots with Caterpillar power. Range should be 6,000 nautical miles around12 or 14 knots. (Family Day and Maín see that range at the higher speed, while Lady Lau achieves it at the slightly slower speed.)
The Codecasa 65 remains fully custom inside, too. Most buyers will probably outfit the main deck in the customary way, with a saloon and formal dining. The bridge deck offers space aft for a skylounge. There are two notable suggested changes for the lower and upper decks aboard the new Codecasa 65, however. The three previous megayachts provided six staterooms for guests below and a main-deck master. This time around, however, Codecasa recommends four guest staterooms and an upper-deck master. In fact, the entire upper deck is devoted to the owners, including a private alfresco area fully forward. There’s also a VIP adjacent to their stateroom. (It’s easy to see this being used for staff or bodyguards in some cases.)
Codecasa has not indicated whether the new Codecasa 65 will carry the same number of crew. If she does, there should be six twin crew cabins, an engineer’s cabin, and of course the captain’s cabin.
