On June 18 at the Intermarine yard in La Spezia, Italy, the fourth example of the CONAM 75 Wide Body was – dubbed Andrea 1921 – was delivered. The CONAM 75 WB is entirely built and fitted out in Rodriquez Cantieri Navali
’s Intermarine yard in Sarzana. The fifth 75 WB is being fitted out and her delivery is planned within a month, whilst numbers 6 and 7 are also under construction.
Rodriquez took over the activities of CONAM in the beginning of 2002 and immediately started with the development and designing of new models. This led to the first CONAM 75 Wide Body being introduced in 2003 at the Genoa Boat Show.
The Conam series are characterised by the “wide body” or “full beam” concept which maximizes the space on board, without compromising performance. In fact, the lateral passages on the main deck disappears to give space to the living-room inside in that the interior volume can be compared to that of a 30 meter yacht yet with all the advantages of owning a boat of less than 24 meters, according to the builder.
Andrea 1921’s fibreglass hull is designed to ensure a stable and comfortable passage, even in rough seas. The CONAM 75 Wide Body tops out at 30 knots, propelled via two 1570 hp engines, paired to fixed pitch propellers in a V-drive configuration. The boat has a 400 nm cruising range.
The WideBody line includes the 60 WideBody and the 75 WideBody models, which measure 60 and 75 feet, respectively. These are fly bridge yachts, all characterized by the full beam (WideBody) superstructure rendering the interior space incredibly versatile and compatible to the interiors of larger boats.
