Codecasa is building a 190-foot (58-meter) motoryacht “on spec’. Hull C127 will feature a fast displacement hull (typical of navy ships), optimized with the best techniques currently available to reach and exceed the threshold of 20 knots.
The Codecasa technical team, headed by Gianluca Imeri, with Pierluigi Ausonio’s co-operation, is very proud of the results achieved for this unit.
Imeri states: “In the development of the preliminary previsions of the hull resistance we have been taking into account the favorable effects reachable with the use of stern supports, “Transom Wedge” type. We then focused our attention on the bow shapes and we opted for a vertical bow lengthening the water lines of the hull. Afterwards, we considered the possibility of making a forward bulb with only a lateral development, i.e. width wise. To confirm the favorable effects of the above, a series of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations have been performed, in the most thorough version available today, i.e. with a RANSE approach (Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes Equations). After the encouraging results obtained, our Shipyard commissioned the Potsdam model basin SVA (in Berlin) to carry out a comprehensive program of tests on a 1:9.5 scale model (the model length was close to 20 feet/6 meters). The results of the various resistance and self-propulsion tests provided even more positive resistance data in the whole speed range, especially with respect to values around the 20 knot target.”
The new megayacht, with the steel hull, equipped with 2 main engines Caterpillar 3516E 2525 kW (3386 hp@1800 rpm), will reach a 21 knots speed, with a range of over 6,000 miles at 12 knots. Her accommodations include an owner’s suite, 5 guest staterooms, as well as a captain’s cabin and 6 double crew cabins, and an elevator serving all decks, the Yacht also has a beach area astern, with the folding shell door that becomes a swimming platform, and a gym and a pool on the sun deck.
The design of this Yacht is the result of the close co-operation between the Codecasa Shipyard technical team with the design studio M2 Atelier of Milan.
The delivery of this new yacht is scheduled for summer 2023.
