M.Y. GAZZELLA (BOAT INTERNATIONAL Marzo, 2016)

The boats of Codecasa’s Vintage Series are starting to feel like the components of an extravagant magic trick. Ladies and gentlemen, watch these three carefully: the first, launched in 2011, is 42 metre Magari; the second, 42 metre Libra, which hit the water in 2013; while the third – and largest so far – 50 metre Gazzella, was unveiled last year. There is variation in size but the DNA is identical – classic lines that hark back to the mid 20th century, with a layout that offers 21st century-sized spaces.  Old-fashioned grace, modern proportions – and, from the dock, that family lineage is clear. But the interior styles of the three boats are so far apart that, while exploring one, it is hard to believe that she could be related to either of the Others.
