Codecasa Yachts have been in business since 1825, and was created by Giovanni Battista Codecasa, who built wooden sailing vessels. Continuous updates and improvements through the years resulted in the current group of three Codecasa shipyards in Viareggio, Italy. All three shipyards manufacture both steel and aluminum yachts. Codecasa Ugo and Codecasa Tre build yachts from 98 feet to 295 feet in length, and specialize in luxury motor yachts. Codecasa Due is equipped for repair and refit, and can build yachts up to 115 feet long. Yachts Magazine awarded Codecasa Yachts for “Best Design” in the large motor yacht category for their 164-foot range yachts. The new Viareggio Harbor facility, near the Pisa International airport occupies 7000 sq. meters, of which 6000 are under permanent cover. The Codecasa Due yard covers 6500 sq. meters, of which 3500 are under cover. This yard can handle yachts up to 115 feet in length.
