Construction update on 65m Codecasa yacht F74
by Miranda Blazeby
Italian yard Codecasa has given a construction update on its in-build 65 metre superyacht Hull F74. The yacht, which is being built to LY3 standards, has been moved from Codecasa’s Pisa based production site to a construction facility in Viareggio. It is due for a summer 2019 delivery.
The yard has also released new photos of the Hull F74 as the outfitting and finishing are due to get underway.
Codecasa’s in-house styling team have begun work on the interior design of the yacht in co-operation with a studio specifically chosen by the owner. Little is known about the yacht’s interior design apart from that it will be functional with comfortable and spacious relaxation areas on all decks.
The news comes after the yard released its first in-build photos of the five-deck yacht in December last year. The F74 is a full custom project, built on the same technical platform as Main,Eternity _and _Double Down. It has been built from a high-tensile steel hull and aluminium superstructure.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split between six cabins, including a pair of master suites, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of 16 people. Like the majority of Codecasa yachts her interior design, which will be flooded with natural light thanks to her large windows, will be fully customised.
Power will come from a pair of 2,448hp Caterpillar 3516C diesel engines for a top speed of 17 knots, while the total fuel capacity of 160,000 litres will allow for a transatlantic range of 5,000 nautical miles when trimmed back to 12 knots. Naiad zero-speed stabilisers will ensure a smooth cruising experience.
