43 FULL BEAM VINTAGE SERIES
It all began when Cantieri Navali Codecasa presented their new Vintage Series to the whole world in the course of the 2011 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show with their very first model, the Codecasa 42 – Vintage Series, construction code F73. The yacht was more than welcomed by visiting parties, and by professionals working this yachting segment in fact the Codecasa 42 Vintage Series was rewarded with the 2011 Nautical Design Awards,for Best Interior Design. Two years later, in July 2013 the initial success was consolidated as the twin sister ship F75 hit the water. This model recalled the classic styling and the traditional exterior and interior design of the first one while sporting all of the latest cutting edge technology available. In the course of summer 2016 the third of the Vintage Series, the F76 Codecasa’s 43 Full beam hit the water.the project for this latest kicked off by building on the Codecasa 42 Vintage Series platform from which the F76 Full Beam can be considered as natural heir.the new Codecasa 43 – Full Beam, boasts a longer overall length by a good half metre aft in the stern area when compared to the Codecasa 42 which translates into added space in the technical areas and in the proximity of the tender stowed in the stern garage.tommaso Spadolini worked with the yard’s technical team to draw up the interior decor and layout, which sports an all new specially designed configuration for Construction F76. The area dedicated to the owner’s quarters features considerable innovation with a stunning full
beam configuration in the bow area of the main deck destined to host the owner’s suite much like what we find on the two Codecasa 42 models, but definitely larger to the extent that the owner’s suite now boasts a private study/office as well. On board of the Codecasa 43 – Full Beam Vintage Series the captain’s cabin is situated on the upper deck next to the helm controls station well away from the four crew cabins set along the lower deck. The window like ports installed in every area of the Codecasa 43 Full Beam from the main saloon along the main deck, the lounge areas, and the owner’s suite are all larger than on the Codecasa 42. The expert hands of the yard’s project design team left nothing to chance and upgraded the deck spaces as well by making them more comfortable and better equipped with: an external lounge area in which to enjoy fresh air while relaxing on well padded sofas, and seats contouring low tables which are installed forward of the helm controls station along the bow area of the upper deck, which offers considerable privacy also when berthed in a marina.the sun deck situated in the bow peak is equipped with an attractive hydro-massage tub. A pair of 1,650 HP Caterpillar 3512C diesels can propel the yacht up to a top speed of 16.5 knots at 1,800 rpm when the yacht is semi laden. At 11 knots the Codecasa 43 Full Beam – Vintage Series can cover 4,000 nautical miles and just like the two preceding models is another great achievement for Cantieri Navali Codecasa. This yacht features interior volumes just below 500 GRT, offers ample external space, sober elegant lines, reasonably low fuel consumption, excellent construction standards, and painstaking care for detail. A fourth Codecasa 43 Full Beam – Vintage Series motor yacht construction C122 is currently being completed and is scheduled to hit the water in June 2017.
