Italian shipyard Codecasa has announced it is building a new 57.8-metre speculation project. The delivery date of hull number C127 is set to be delivered next spring 2023. The exterior design is by Cantieri Codecasa.
The Codecasa’s production, in fact, has not been discouraged by the long and difficult Covid-19 period and is proceeding at full speed towards the next deliveries, which also include this new build of 58 meters of length overall. This yacht, featured by exceptional technical performances, represents Mr Fulvio Codecasa’s courage and resourcefulness and his strong will of creating an innovative “on Spec” Project.
The Codecasa technical team, headed by Mr Gianluca Imeri, with Mr Pierluigi Ausonio’s co-operation, is very proud of the results achieved for this elegant and gritty unit. The new C127 will be able to reach the maximum speed of about 21 knots at light displacement.
Hull C127 will feature a fast displacement hull (typical of military ships), optimized with the best techniques currently available to reach and exceed the threshold of 20 knots, a remarkable speed for a Yacht of this size with a steel hull, and she will then be automatically included among the fastest Yachts in her category.
Mr Imeri states: “In the development of the preliminary previsions of the hull resistance we have been taking into account the favourable effects reachable with the use of stern supports, “Transom Wedge” type. We then focused our attention on the bow shapes and we opted for a vertical bow lengthening the water lines of the hull. Afterwards, we considered the possibility of making a forward bulb with only a lateral development, i.e. widewise. To confirm the favourable effects of the above, a series of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations have been performed, in the most thorough version available today, i.e. with a RANSE approach (Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes Equations). After the encouraging results obtained, our Shipyard commissioned the Potsdam model basin SVA (in Berlin) to carry out a comprehensive program of tests on a 1:9.5 scale model (the model length was about 6 metres). The results of the various resistance and self-propulsion tests provided even more positive resistance data in the whole speed range, especially with respect to values around the 20 knot target”.
Data at hand, the new megayacht, with the steel hull, equipped with 2 main engines Caterpillar 3516E 2525 kW (3386 hp@1800 rpm), will reach a 21 knots speed, with a range of over 6,000 miles at 12 knots. Featured by 1 Owner’s Suite, 5 Guests’ Cabins, in addition to the Captain’s Cabin and 6 double Crew cabins, and a comfortable lift serving all decks, the Yacht also provides a beach area astern, with the folding shell door that becomes a swimming platform, and a Gym and a swimming pool of 3.5 x 3 meters on the Sun Deck.
Obviously, the maximum comfort will be ensured on board, thanks to the very high quality and technological standards that have always been the keynotes of the Codecasa Brand products. These, combined with the speed, will make this Yacht a new benchmark in the Italian and worldwide nautical industry.
