Castagnola announce new 38m wooden sports yacht

Castagnola has announced the build of its new flagship model, the Castagnola 38 WJ.

At 38 meters LOA, and with an 8.10 metre beam, it will be completely built in wood. The hull construction will be triple-planked, and the Lavagna shipyard technical office is also evaluating the use of carbon-fibre sheets to improve the strength and keep the boat lighter. She is expected to weigh 146 tonnes fully loaded. After completion, she will be one of the biggest motor yachts ever built in wood and powered by water jets.

The interiors are by the Andrea Borzelli & Sara Berta in cooperation with Giovanni Castagnola. There are four cabins on the lower deck, each with its own bathroom, along with a comfortable crew mess can accommodate up to seven crew members. A modern gym is placed between the crew and the guest area and is directly connected with the upper deck via a dedicated staircase.

The boat will be powered by three MTU 12 V2000 M94s, giving 1432 kW each, coupled to three KAMEWA 56A3 waterjets through ZF gearboxes and double elastic coupling. The new 38 WJ is expected to reach a 28 knots cruising speed, with a 31 knot top speed.
