What’s In Build? Codecasa Hull C127
LOA: 57.8 metres
Exterior designer: Codecasa
Naval architect: Codecasa/Pierluigi Ausonio
Delivery: Summer 2023
What was the brief?
The brief was to produce an innovative 58 metre megayacht with a steel hull, setting a new trend featuring exceptional technical performances. Hull C127 features a fast displacement hull, optimised with the best techniques currently available to reach and exceed the threshold of 20 knots, a remarkable speed for a yacht of this size, and one with a steel hull. Once launched, she will be among the fastest yachts in her category. Obviously, maximum comfort will be ensured on board at all times, thanks to the high quality and technological standards that have always been the keynotes of the Codecasa brand.
What has been the most challenging part of the build so far?
The most challenging part of the build so far has been the optimisation of the hull to let it reach 21 knots speed, which is an impressive feat for a 58 metre steel hull. To achieve these results we used both a series of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations and 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 six metres).
Name one or two standout features on board
The two standout features are its speed and large exterior areas, including a beach club area astern with the folding shell door that becomes a swimming platform, a gym and a pool of 3.5 x 3 metres on the sun deck.
What’s the status of the build and when is the scheduled delivery date?
The hull is 30% built with delivery scheduled for summer 2023.
