Boatbuilders dating back to Noah have utilized wood to create their vessels. In addition to being stronger, pound for pound, than steel, it has an exceptional ability to absorb vibrations for a comfortable, quiet ride. It’s also eminently recyclable, provides jobs and is self-sustaining. However, the best reason to use it is the beauty it imparts. A stunning example is the Castagnola Heritage 9.9, a classically-derived, handcrafted cruiser that could easily serve as the tender for the most opulent superyachts. The classic lines are reminiscent of times in which all boats were crafted from wood, but a closer inspection reveals high-tech methodologies. To provide maximum strength and waterproofness, solid mahogany planks are clad in an epoxy-infused carbon fiber. The combination of a deep-v hull and a pair of 320-hp Yanmar turbodiesel engines deliver a cruising range of 170 nm at 20 knots and an impressive top speed of 40 knots. Available in an open or hard top layout, the sensual Heritage 9.9 makes every cruise a mozzifiato experience; CastagnolaYacht.it.
