Codecasa was the star of the Monaco Yacht Show 2011 with the presentation of its first 42 metre motor yacht in the new Vintage series.
Meanwhile in Viareggio, hull C 116 hit the water without public fanfare, and the Italian yard has only now released more details about this new yacht, which has been christened Aldabra. With a length of 51 metres, she is the latest in the successful Codecasa 51 series. Square windows, a vertical wheehouse, and white and silver paintwork give her a distinctly modern look.
Lloyd's registered and MCA compliant, Aldabra is built in steel and aluminum to a design developed by the in-house architects. Her layout accommodates 12 guests in a full-beam master and VIP cabin on the main deck, and four lower deck guest cabins - two doubles and two twins.
On the technical side, Aldabra is powered by twin 2,447hp Caterpillar 3516B engines giving a top speed of 17 knots, a cruising speed of 16 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 14 knots.
With her sea trials due to start soon Aldabra will be delivered before the end of the year.
