New Model: Codecasa 50S C120

Some new launches are important for the size they break, while others are important for opening new ground in design style and type.  The 50S C120 follows the later category, as it is the largest open yacht build by Codecasa for a repeating client of this well respected Italian builder.  The Codecasa 50S is a design to Andrea Bacigalupo who took care for outside and for the hull who gave full homage to Italian looks, while the interiors where in the hands of Codecasa architects Anna Maria and Franco della Role who collaborated with a fiduciary architect from the owner.  The interior of the 50S features five guest cabins, plus an owners stateroom. Crew cabins are four, plus a captains cabin.  Power is triple MTU 2600hp with Ka.Me.Wa water jet propulsion giving a max of 26 knots.  Stabilization is also an important part of the 50S with a custom made gyroscope system made to purpose by Australian company Ship Dynamics.
