Cantieri reveals 24m Gentleman’s Yacht


Cantieri Navali Codecasa is to begin building its first 24m vessel, the Gentlemans Yacht. The yacht is an effort by the Italian yard to combine 1960s style with modern, technologically advanced solutions with construction to begin imminently.

Designed by Luca DINI Design & Architecture, its founder Luca Dini said: “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.

Dini added: “The idea was to transform a piece of nautical history into something exclusive. Yachts from the 1950s and 1960’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”

Built entirely in aluminium to guarantee high performance there will be 10 vessels constructed according to Cantieri. 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.

The interior includes wooden panels, white lacquered ceilings, wooden details, chocolate and taupe leather and touches of navy blue in the choice of fabrics.

Cantieri Navali Codecasa head, Fulvio Codecasa said: “For quite some time Ive 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 thats smaller in scale, less demanding and more manageable than a yacht over 40 meters. Falling in love with Ar. Luca Dinis project was easy considering the mutual respect we have for one another thats connected us for years.”
