The first Codecasa 50 Vintage project now has an owner. Started on spec, the megayacht will be handed over next summer.
The Codecasa 50 Vintage is the largest offering in the Vintage Series so far, which was introduced in 2009. At that point, the builder was publicizing just one model, the Vintage 42 (139 feet, or 42.5 meters). The goal of the Vintage Series is to blend traditional-era styling with modern-day amenities. Codecasa cited a few famous yachts as inspiration, notably Marlin, a 51-foot commuter from 1930 that was owned by Joseph Kennedy of the equally famous Kennedy family. Marlin became an unofficial Presidential yacht under John F. Kennedy.
Following the sale of two Vintage 42s, Codecasa decided to add the 50 Vintage to the lineup and begin construction.
This first Codecasa 50 Vintage is being referred to as Project Falcon for now. For those of you who like to track hull numbers, she’s C121. Styling and naval architecture is from Codecasa’s in-house team. The 163’7” (49.9-meter) Codecasa 50 Vintage bears a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, further built to Lloyds classification and MCA compliance.
Specifics on the interior design have not been revealed. For now, Codecasa is saying that the megayacht, characterized by a 33’5” (10.2-meter) beam, will bear the design work of Della Role, as have so many of its previous deliveries. You can expect to find a main-deck owner’s suite and five guest staterooms, the latter possibly including two twins. A crew of nine plus the captain will attend to their needs and the overall yacht.
The Codecasa 50 Vintage should see her most efficient range at 12 knots: 5,000 nautical miles. Top end is expected to be 17½ knots (light displacement). Twin 2,365-hp Caterpillar engines provide propulsion for the yacht, which will further have a 9’4” (2.85-meter) draft.
