ITALY, Viareggio. Following the successful launches of the two 42m Codecasa Vintange Series superyachts, Magari (2011) and Libra (2013), Codecasa has released information about a new 50m Vintage Series project, Gazzella, due for completion in July 2015.

Gazzella (hull C121) was designed, like her sisterships, by the Codecasa Shipyard technical staff and a select number of trusted designers. The conceptual aim was to strike a balance between the past and present.

The contemporary hull and superstructure will be finished in a traditional white, contrasting and emphasising the exuberance of the classically finished interior. Mahogany wood and plume surfaces will be present throughout and the floor will host a mixture of precious marbles, onyx and carpet. A large conversation area centred on a gilt mahogany table, in front of a 65-inch television, will make up the main salon, from which the interior flows into the dining room. The dining room also hosts a large mahogany topped table, this time inlayed with maple wood and capable of seating 12 guests.

Main Salon
A four-person elevator connects all decks. Forward on the main deck is an en suite VIP cabin as well as the owner’s suite that features a private office, walk-in closets and twin bathrooms — finished in honey onyx.

Owners suite
The lower deck is home to two double and two twin guest cabins as well as the crew area. The crew area includes four double cabins, the chief engineer’s cabin, crew mess and a laundry room. Access to dry storage, walk-in refrigerators and cold rooms is also possible through the crew area.

Double cabin
Alternate social space to the main salon can be found on the bridge deck where an intimate skylounge includes a relaxed seating area with a 65-inch television, a breakfast table and bar. The bridge deck is complete with a dayhead, pantry and the captain’s cabin. The latter is directly connected to the radio room and wheelhouse.

Sky lounge
Exterior areas provide ample space for entertainment. There will be a relaxation area on the aft main deck and a 12-person al fresco dining area on the aft bridge deck. Finally the sundeck, which can be reached by the elevator, has a large sunbathing and seating area, a bar and Jacuzzi for up to six people.

Gazzella will utilise two Caterpillar 3512C engines, offer a top speed of 17.5 knots and a range of approximately 5,000nm at a cruising speed of 12 knots. She will also come with a Castoldi 6.4m jet tender.
