The 63.7-metre Codecasa Bash has been pictured for the first time following a full-scale refit at Croatian shipyard Capax. Refit work began in 2022 and comprised around €9.5 million worth of upgrades, with works focusing mainly on the bridge deck, main deck and master cabin.
Bash was launched in 1990 as Jonikal, and later became known as Sokar. She was famously owned by the Fayed family and played host to Princess Diana in 1997, in what would become an infamous holiday that took place just days before her fatal accident in Paris.
Bash was purchased by her current owner in 2021 who requested a number of modifications before putting her back on the market earlier in 2023. The rebuild of the bridge was a crucial component of the owner's brief, which works including new navigation and communications equipment, new flooring and new insulation. Two double cabins were also ripped out to create a larger lounge with a relaxation area.
A new VIP cabin has also been installed on the port side of this deck, and cosmetic upgrades, such as a new onyx bar top in the saloon, have been added in.
In the owner's cabin, the space has been expanded by around 200 per cent. The en suite has been replaced by a lounge area, the port cabin has been replaced by an office, the starboard cabin has been replaced with a walk-in dressing area and new furnishings and fittings have given a new lease of life to the space.
Elsewhere, yacht has received a new spa by converting an existing office, the AV system has been rewired, new speakers have been installed and new floor covers have been fitted on the main deck.
Bash has undergone a roster of technical upgrades to put her up to 2023 standards, with all-new safety systems, new audio-visual systems and communication equipment installed throughout. Other cosmetic changes include new LED fittings, exterior cushions, director chairs and gangway painting.
