Cantieri Navali Codecasa is embarking on a 50’s style 79ft (24m) ‘gentleman’s yacht’ designed by Luca Dini Design and Architecture that mixes elegance with technologically advanced solutions.

"There are projects commissioned by yacht owners, projects commissioned by shipyards and then there are projects that are born from a particular inspiration. Unique. This is one of those projects. The idea was to transform a piece of nautical history into something exclusive. Yachts from the 50’s immediately take me back to when I was a child. So, I wanted to create something that, just by looking at it, made me relive moments of my childhood, walking in Darsena in Viareggio, admiring the timeless elegance of these boats"

This unique project immediately won Fulvio Codecasa’s heart, thus cementing a collaboration between Codecasa Shipyard and Luca Dini’s design studio.

For quite some time I’ve wanted to create a boat that, like the Vintage series produced by my shipyard in recent years, goes hand in hand with my personal vision of a yacht, converting it into a project that’s smaller in scale, less demanding and more manageable than a yacht over 40 meters. Falling in love with Arch. Luca Dini's project was easy considering the mutual respect we have for one another that's connected us for years.

The 24 meter Gentleman’s Yacht is characterized by noble elegance and refined design, where the beauty of the past and lines inspired by a traditional maritime style are placed in a modern context, as far as features, comfort, reliability and security are concerned, so that navigation becomes a unique and unforgettable experience for the lucky owner."

The series is planned to be a limited edition of only 10 yachts. The design is aimed at yacht owners looking for something different: a second yacht with timeless charm for spending quality time with the family. A style icon of timeless beauty which never goes unnoticed, no matter what marina it cruises into. The first model is already being planned and will soon be in construction

Yacht Moments along with Kurt Lehmann immediately got on board with the project and will contribute to the marketing of this limited edition.

Built entirely in aluminum, the Gentleman’s Yacht exudes beauty in every small detail, from the glossy mahogany flanks and wooden surfaces (panels on the superstructure, transom and internal gunwale) to the chrome-plated steel finishes (protecting the hull, bow and edges of the transom).

Particular attention was given to the size of the Beach Club. The large living space is connected to the sundeck through sliding glass doors, creating a fluid and harmonious dialogue between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The space is opened up by having a custom-made tender on the main deck. This change in location and a crane concealed in a compartment means that the tender can easily be lowered into the water by one person. This is not just any tender, but a miniature Gentleman’s Yacht, with the same finishes and elegant lines.

In addition to the Owner Suite there are three Guest Cabins and two Crew Cabins. Given the size of the boat each space had to be carefully designed to allow for a completely separate wheelhouse and kitchen, ensuring total privacy for the yacht owner and guests.

The classic version of the interior includes wooden panels, white lacquered ceilings, wooden details, chocolate and taupe leather and touches of navy blue in the choice of fabrics. The other more contemporary version creates a surprising contrast between the interior and exterior of the yacht. Timeless elegance flows through every aspect of this design.
