The path was taken nearly 3 years ago when, during the Monaco Yacht Show 2011, Codecasa Shipyards unveiled in front of the whole world their new Vintage Series, through the exhibition of the first unit of the CODECASA 42 – Vintage Series, Hull F73, that achieved such a resounding success among the industry fans and experts to be awarded with the Nautical Design Awards 2011 for the Best Interior Design.
This Yacht, named M.Y. Magari after being sold, is now cruising in the Med.
Two years later, that same success was strengthened through the launching of the sister-ship, Hull F75, completed in July 2013. Same as the previous Yacht and still fully representing the distinctive and identifying traits of the whole line, this hull was also inspired by a classic style and traditional lines in the Exterior as well as in the Interior design, as well as by a continuous and careful application of cutting edge and last generation technologies, able to obtain the best in terms of reliability and safety, comfort for the Owner and his Guests, respect and safeguard of the environment.
The next two years, fortunately, are going to be as active and busy for Codecasa Shipyards.
Confirming their strong confidence in this new line of Yachts, in fact, Codecasa Shipyards have planned in 2015 the launching of the first unit of the new CODECASA 50 – Vintage Series, Hull C121 which is meant to become the flagship of the whole series, that will be followed shortly after by the launch of the first unit of the new CODECASA 43 Full Beam- Vintage Series, Hull F76 the design of which was developed starting from the platform of the CODECASA 42 – Vintage Series.
The new CODECASA 43 – Full Beam, which is currently at the early stages of construction at the Codecasa Shipyards production facility in Pisa, thanks first of all to its overall length increased of about half meter in the aft area compared to the CODECASA 42, will offer more comfortable working and service areas around the tender installed in the aft garage. Innovations, anyway, go far beyond. Codecasa Shipyards’ Designers, Franco and Anna Maria Della Role with the co-operation of the in-house technical staff, in fact, got down to work and, cherishing the advices and whishes collected while talking with Owners and professionals of the industry, developed a totally new layout, designed on purpose for Hull F76.
As far as the Owner’s areas are concerned, the major innovation is the full beam layout of the Owner’s Suite, located forward on the Main Deck as on the two CODECASA 42’s, but featuring larger spaces than on these two units, enabling to add also a private office inside the Owner’s apartment.
Going up to the Bridge Deck, the Captain’s Cabin with its en-suite bathroom will be adjacent the wheelhouse. On the CODECASA 43 – Full Beam, therefore, the Captain will have his own Cabin in direct contact with the bridge and separate from the other four Crew cabins in the Lower Deck, all of them for the yacht staff. Larger and brighter hallways and a panoramic staircase will connect the three interior decks. Bigger windows than the ones of the CODECASA 42 will be the key features of all areas, from the Owner’s Suite up to the Main Deck and Bridge Deck salons.
The shipyards Designers’ skilful hands, anyway, did not overlook the Exterior Decks either and they did their best to make them even more comfortable and equipped: an exterior living area with sofas, settees and tables in fact will be created in the Portuguese Bridge forward the wheelhouse, obtaining an extremely private and reserved space, very useful when the Yacht is moored at the dock. The Sun Deck will be equipped with a Jacuzzi tub, installed far forward.
Equipped with two Caterpillar 3512 C main engines (1.650 HP each at 1.800 rpm) able to reach a top speed of 16,5 marine knots in light displacement conditions and a range of 4.000 nautical miles at the cruising speed of 11 knots, the CODECASA 43 Full Beam – Vintage Series same as the two previous units of CODECASA 42, is meant to become another excellent achievement for Codecasa Shipyards, a small jewel of the sea, able to assure a safe and comfortable cruising in any weather and sea conditions, interior volumes slightly under 500 tons GRT, absolutely remarkable exterior spaces, clean and elegant lines, reasonable consumptions, very high building standards.
