Superyacht of the week: the 50m Codecasa Gazzella

Written by Gemma Fottles

Built and designed in her entirety by the Italian shipyard Codecasa, superyacht Gazzella measures 50 metres and has been constructed with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. She was completed in 2015 and is part of the yard’s Vintage Series, of which the first 42 metre units were completed in 2011 and 2013: Magari and Libra.

Her bright, white exterior and traditional lines contrast perfectly with her exceedingly rich interior design and complements the design brief of representing a good balance between the past and the present.

On board she accommodates her guests over six opulent cabins, with the owner’s suite located forward on the main deck. Decorated in the same luxurious style as seen throughout the rest of her interior, the master’s suite includes a private office, spacious walk-in closets and two bathrooms. Her bathrooms utilise honey onyx, and are connected to through the shower, the walls of which are decorated with an elegant floral mosaic.

The VIP suite is also found on the main deck, whilst two double and two twin cabins are located on the lower deck - all of which are en-suite - and decorated in differing colour schemes.

Upon entry to Gazzella, guests are immediately welcomed with a heavy use of mahogany and mahogany plume. Throughout, her flooring features either precious marbles and onyx or finely detailed, luxurious carpets which create an ambiance reminiscent of an opulent 19th century aristocratic residence.

The generous main salon is comprised of an extensive lounge area with two large sofas and four plush armchairs in rich red and gold tones, centred around a coffee table of mahogany wood with stunning gilded details. Throughout the day, this area is flooded with natural light from her large windows, and is an ideal spot for spending time with family and friends, complete with a 65” television.

The main salon seamlessly continues to the sophisticated dining area, divided by a low partition cabinet. The dining table with a top of mahogany wood richly decorated with maple wood inlays is able to seat up to 12 people comfortably, and is the perfect setting to enjoy the very best fine dining experience.

From the dining room, the pantry is accessed on the portside and hence to the galley. A dumb-waiter directly connects the main deck pantry with the bridge deck pantry. Going forward on the starboard side from the dining room is the main hallway, the flooring of which feature precious types of marble inlays. Here the main staircase is found, featuring an elegant handrail of dark metal with gilded details and with walls covered in a beautiful material combining golden-leaf and mother-of-pearl. She also features an elevator that connects all decks.

An intimate skylounge on the bridge deck provides a less formal space for entertainment and relaxation on board, and features an additional comfortable seating area, 65” television, breakfast table and bar area. Blue is the primary colour used in this space, including in the marble topped bar and coffee table, as well as in her upholstery.

Moving on to her outside area, the sun deck is undoubtedly her highlight, and is also accessible via the elevator. This space boasts a large sunbathing area, a lounge area, a bar and a large Jacuzzi.

Elsewhere, guests can enjoy al fresco dining for 12 on the aft bridge deck, as well as enjoy the spectacular views from the main deck, where a large, understated seating area is found - a direct contrast to the rich opulence of her interior.

In regards to her performance, she is powered by twin CAT 3512C engines, she will be able to reach a maximum speed of 17.5 knots, with a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
