The path was taken when at the Monaco Yacht Show 2011 Codecasa Shipyards unveiled in front of the whole world their new Vintage Series, through the exhibition of the first unit of the CODECASA 42 –Vintage Series – Hull F73, that achieved such a resounding success among the industry fans and experts to be awarded with the Nautical Design Awards 2011 for the Best Interior Design.
This Yacht, named m.y. Magari after being sold, is now cruising in the Med.
Two years later, that success was strengthened through the launching of sister-ship, Hull F75, now m.y. Libra, completed in July 2013. Same as the previous Yacht and still fully representing the distinctive and identifying traits of the whole line, this hull was also inspired by a classic style and traditional lines in the exterior design as well as in the interior design, as well as by a continuous and careful application of cutting edge and last generation technologies, able to obtain the best performances in terms of reliability and safety, comfort for the Owner and his Guests, respect and safeguard of the environment.
Confirming their strong confidence in this new line of Yachts, Codecasa Shipyards delivered in Summer 2015 the first unit of the new CODECASA 50 –Vintage Series – Hull C121, m.y. Gazzella and before the beginning of Summer 2016, they launched the new CODECASA 43 Full Beam – Vintage Series – Hull F76, now m.y. Gio Chi Thè, the design of which was developed starting from the platform of the CODECASA 42 – Vintage Series, of which it can be considered as a natural evolution.
The new CODECASA 43 Full Beam, thanks first of all to its overall length increased of about half a meter in the aft area with respect to the CODECASA 42, offers more comfortable working and service areas around the tender installed in the aft garage.
Innovations, anyway, go far beyond. The Interiors of this Yacht were designed by Tommaso Spadolini who, with the co-operation of the in-house technical staff, got down to work and developed a totally new layout, designed on purpose for Hull F76.
As far as the Owner’s areas are concerned, the major innovation is the full beam layout of the Owner’s Suite, located forward on the Main Deck as on the two Codecasa 42’s, but featuring larger spaces than on these two units, enabling to add also a private office inside the Owner’s apartment.
Going up to the Bridge Deck, the Captain’s Cabin with its en-suite bathroom is adjacent the wheelhouse. On the CODECASA 43 Full Beam, therefore, the Captain has his own cabin in direct contact with the bridge and separate from the other four Crew cabins in the Lower Deck, all of them for the yacht staff. Larger and brighter hallways and a panoramic staircase connect the three interior decks. Bigger windows than the ones of the CODECASA 42 are the key features of all areas, from the Owner’s Suite up to the Main Deck and Bridge Deck salons.
The shipyards Designers’ skillful hands, anyway, did not overlooked the exterior decks either and they did their best to make them even more comfortable and equipped: an exterior living area with sofas, settees and tables in fact has been created in the Portuguese Bridge forward the wheelhouse, obtaining an extremely private and reserved space, very useful when the Yacht is moored at the dock. The Sun Deck is equipped with a Jacuzzi tub, installed far forward.
