New Model: Codecasa 50 Vintage C121

In the wave of the great success met by the first two units of 42 meters belonging to the Vintage Series, namely Hull F73 built in 2011 and F75 built in 2013, Codecasa Shipyards delivered in July, 2015 the 50 meters version.  The new Codecasa 50 Vintage Series, Hull C121, named Gazella was also designed by in house by family owned Viareggio shipyard technical staff in co-operation with trusted designers, with the aim of finding the perfect balance between past and present.  For the first 50 meters of the Vintage Series, the Owner has chosen the white color for both hull and superstructure. The plain and traditional exterior lines combine with classic and rich interiors. As soon as you go in, your eyes is caught by the richness of the interiors, which are made of mahogany wood and mahogany plume, with flooring's that feature precious marbles and onyx or carpet with elegant decorations, depending on the areas. The main salon is made of a large conversation area with two big sofas, four armchairs in the red and gold tones, placed around a coffee table of mahogany wood with gilded details.  The whole area of the Salon is well lit by the natural light coming from the big windows and it is further increased by the continuation with the dining room, from which it is divided by a low partition cabinet. The dining room, with its rectangular table with the top of mahogany wood richly decorated with maple wood inlays, is able to sit up to twelve people.  From the dining room, we go into the pantry on the port-side and hence to the galley, equipped with last-generation appliances, distributed between the cabinets and the practical center island. A dumb-waiter directly connects the main deck pantry with the bridge pantry. Going forward on the starboard side, from the dining room we reach the main hallway, the flooring of which feature precious types of marble inlays. Hence begins the main staircase with its elegant handrail of dark metal with gilded details and with the walls covered of a material combining golden-leaf and mother-of-pearl that connects the bridge to the guests area on the lower deck.  The elevator, for four people, connects all decks, from the lower up to the sun deck.  Going forward on the Main deck we reach the VIP Cabin, with ensuite bathroom, which is close to the Owner’s Suite, this latter with private office, large cabin, spacious walk-in closets and two bathrooms, covered of Honey Onyx and connected to each other through the shower, the walls of which are decorated with an elegant floral mosaic. In the Lower Deck there are four Cabins for the Guests, two double-bedded and two twin-bedded, each one of them obviously with its own bathroom. Below deck is also the Crew Area, made of four double cabins, the Chief Engineer’s cabin, the crew mess and the laundry, equipped with three washers and three dryers. From the Crew Area it is possible to reach the deck underneath, with the dry storage, built-in walking-in refrigerators and large cold rooms.  On the bridge there is the cozy sky-lounge, more intimate and less formal than the main deck salon, featuring a comfortable sitting area in front of a large TV, a breakfast table, a bar furniture. Here the main color is blue, chosen for the marble used for the coffee table and bar furniture tops as well as for the upholstering fabrics and the carpet decoration. The deck is completed by a day toilet, a pantry and the Captain’s cabin, this latter directly connected with the radio room and the wheelhouse, provided with modern navigation, search and communication equipment in order to offer the utmost safety to the Owner and his Guests. The exterior areas are comfortable on all decks. The pleasant relaxation area on the main deck aft cockpit alternates with the alfresco dining area on the aft bridge, which is able to sit twelve people. Finally the sun deck has a large sunbathing area, a sitting, a bar corner and then a large Jacuzzi bathtub, for five/six people, provided with comfortable sunbathing mattresses.  Throughout the yacht, the best care has been devoted to the selection of the equipment for the satellite reception, Internet and entertainment systems.  Provided with a Castoldi 21’ jet tender and with Zero Speed stabilizers, Codecasa hull C121 thanks to its twin Cats 2365hp is able to reach a top speed of seventeen knots at light displacement and a range of about five thousand nautical miles at 12 knots speed.
