Italian shipyard Codecasa launched their CODECASA 41s open motoryacht, hull C 119, called “Flying Dagger”, second specimen of this series. Sporty and streamlined in her layout, this boat was created by designer Andre Bacigalupo for the exteriors and commissioned by a regular Codecasa client, owner of a 35 metres open motoryacht, which has now handed her name over to this new vessel.
With her 41 metres LOA and 8 metres beam, the new Flying Dagger offers exteriors with a very modern and bold look, also thanks to her particular paint colours, a metallic anthracite gray for the hull and a metallic light gray for the superstructure, recalling the first Codecasa 41s, m.y. FAMILY DAY, winner of many awards, such as the 2007 International Yachts Trophy. Very roomy are the outside relax areas on main deck’s bow and stern sides. Very liveable is the sunbathing area on Sun deck , also offering a bar corner and a second bridge station useful for the docking phases.
The interiors are studied and conceived by designer Ivana Porfiri and are characterized by very essential lines. The main saloon, including living and dining area, is very well-lit thanks to her wide side windows and to the central skylight on the ceiling. Very singular is the partitioning between bridge and saloon, two sandwich glasses containing Palladio leaves, a semi-noble metal, very close to platinum. This installation, called “D’après Yves Klein” has been handcrafted with leaves partially attached to the panel, following the inspiration to the famous French artist.
White colour dominates in all rooms on board. This is a basic white expressing the diversity of textures and of the many surfaces in the brushed and painted floor wooden staves , or in the plaster walls and ceilings finishings or in the satined leather surface of the headboards and of all accessories. As for the further materials completing the spaces, they have been selected following their natural or artificial light reaction capacity, such as the mother-of-pearl chosen for the washbasins tops or such as the showers’mirrors in dichroic glass. Very particular is the port-holes shape in the cabins replacing the typical naval rounded shape with a recall to ancient castles.
The crew area is well studied as well, both in her shapes and in her finishings and functionality. This area has a double level organized around a free space hosting a dinette complete of an independent galley, made of recycled plastic, and a multipurpose area. A pair of unusual honeycomb glass sandwich panel separate this spaces, filtering the light coming in from the port-holes.
