For years it has been deemed that looking back at past styles can be seen as a restraint on innovation. However, more and more often these days, the past has become the main source of inspiration. This trend has steadily grown, involving the world of fashion and luxury goods too. Codecasa have borrowed a term from the oenological field, Vintage, a word that has been coined to refer to the wines of the best years, the taste of which improves as time moves on.
The new 42 metre Vintage Series from Codecasa, will prelude the 50 metre version to follow. This new project, being undertaken at the historical shipyard in Viareggio, follows known paths to mark out new roads, not with the melancholic attempt to celebrate something that is lost, but rather, with the purpose of recovering a timeless style and an exciting jump into the future.
It's lines, with a faintly retro taste, co-exist with forefront technology; the safety assured by last generation outfits goes together with a d’antan style that is still able to rouse new and exciting emotions; the richness of its precious materials combines with an intentionally simple and decontracté design, which is entrusted to Architect Della Role.
This new yacht has taken inspiration from the main features of vessels that have made yachting history, namely, the Moratti family’s mythic Paraggina and the equally legendary Marlin, owned by the Kennedys.
In response to the slender profiles and sleek lines that have characterized (or rather standardized) the superyachts of the last generation, Codecasa see the appeal to owners due to her attractive outlines that are temptingly firm, clean and compact; a boat that does not attack the sea but rather harmoniously combine with it.
The yacht has a maximum speed of 17 knots, assured by the two Caterpillar engines 1650 Hp each, with a fuel capacity of 60.000 liters. The hull is high tensile AH 36 steel and the superstructures are in light alloy. The remarkable displacement (390 tons) and the guarantee offered by certifications issued by worldwide recognized Classification Societies, like Lloyd’s Register and MCA, make this 42 metre yacht safe and suitable for covering long distances in any weather condition.
This new Codecasa superyacht has a range of 4.000 miles at a speed of 11 knots and she can accommodate 6 crew members, in three cabins and the captain.
