Ocean Independence announces the sale of the Codecasa 50-metre Vintage Series Hull C121, which is scheduled for launch in July 2015.

The yacht was sold to a long-standing charter client of Ocean Independence charter broker Nadia Bendedouche who teamed up with sales broker Eric Trupheme. Together they researched several projects for the discerning client. Project Falcon's design, quality and build time made her the best fit. With support from Ocean Management, the pair negotiated the commercial package and contract with Codecasa. 

The vessel is the first unit of the new 50-metre Vintage Series. She is expected to be as successful as the 35-, 41- and 45-metre versions built previously. The yacht will be able to reach a maximum speed of 17.5 knots and have a range of 5,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. 

The interior design is by Anna Maria and Franco Della Role who created a classic and luxurious environment for guests. There is accommodation for 12 guests in six staterooms plus a full-beam master suite. 

A central elevator is featured for the convenience of everyone on board. The yacht also boasts zero speed stabilisers to ensure a calm and relaxing experience for all.
