Fewer and fewer yachts the size of Boji by Codecasa employ steel hulls. Yet, this 141-footer (43-meter) has one, a full-displacement form, too. She is the latest in an ongoing series that shows some superyacht owners don’t always do what the rest of the crowd does.
Launched on May 19, the yacht is part of the Codecasa 43 family. Naturally, as such, she is capable of long-range cruising. The shipyard anticipates that she’ll be able to cover 4,000 nautical miles when pursuing leisurely 11-knot speeds. The twin Caterpillar engines additionally should permit a top speed of 16½ knots.
With all design, from engineering to interior design, from the builder’s in-house departments, Boji boasts a vertical bow. It enhances the usable space for the owner and his family inside, within the 29’5” (9-meter) beam. It further enhances the feeling of her 500-gross-ton volume.
While this video of Boji by Codecasa doesn’t provide us a peek into her interior, it does something equally important. It puts the spotlight on the shipyard craftspeople who helped her get to this point. We see, for example, workers removing the supports holding her on her stands within the drydock. We also see them present the owner and his family with a scale model of their new yacht.
Although they’re not craftspeople, we further get to see the priests who blessed her before her official christening. Of course, the owner and his family are all smiles, releasing the traditional champagne bottle and taking photos as Boji slips down the ways.
The yacht still has several finishing touches to complete before the maiden voyage can begin. However, that voyage should be within the coming weeks.
