Michel Karsenti and the management team of Canados Yachts were glad to give an overview of the situation of the shipyard that will have reached a totally debt free position by late October 2016, offering it a unique strength within the industry.
Canados future has been explained and four new projects to be launched in 2017 have been released:
Gladiator 428 by Canados
The Gladiator 428 has been designed by Roman designer, Marco Casali in direct collaboration with Michel Karsenti and Gianluca Fanelli, the head of new project developments at Canados.
The task requested to Casali was particularly difficult to respect. He was asked to work on a highly technical hull in terms of architecture and the model had to incorporate:
a modern and elegant design to immediately reach the status of modern-classic and respect the Canados values.
create a true day-boat, offering gigantic outdoor spaces and allowing for the “run-it-yourself” kind of clients, a true social layout.
respect the Canados DNA with a luxury customizable interior.
give the boat a strong Charisma to appeal to super-yacht owners for their tow-tenders or commuter boat and a level of luxury that will immediately position the model at the top of the market for family oriented clients.
Gladiator 822 by Canados
Also designed by Marco Casali, this sport boat offers a unique layout and will be available in various versions power/transmission packages offering top speeds ranging from 34 to 58 knots.
Casali’s task was not made easy by the strict guidelines he was given that reflect Canados’ typical flexibility. The 822 Gladiator had to be designed and engineered to be able to offer multiple interior layout, 3 or 4 cabins, various main deck arrangements and either V-Drive transmission or Surface Drives for speed addicted clients.
The 822 not only offers impressive interior volumes, she will also offer, bar none, the largest exterior decks in the category and a very new circulation concept between the aft deck, the main saloon and the foredeck which layout becomes a true extension of the interior and becomes a true social area. All this has been achieved thanks to the perfect interaction between the designer and the builder.
About the Gladiator product line
Each model of this line of Sport Yachts is available in a Sport and a Performance version. The sport versions are equipped with conventional transmission and E-Glass and vacuum bagged construction.
The performance versions are equipped with surface drive transmissions, hull in vacuum bagged E-Glass and superstructure in Kevlar/Aramat.
Canados 969 Coliseum
A 97 foot Raised Pilot House yachts with unique layout and volumes for those willing to find the amenities of a 35 meter in a package under 30 meter LOA and under 24-meter load line.
The 969 Coliseum offers a true main deck owner’s suite with an oversized split level bathroom and a private foredeck terrace.
Her aft deck concept is also truly unique with its two side cocoons housing two saloons and a wide central access gangway.
The Canados 969 Coliseum is the only yacht in the category to offer two garages, one for the tender, one for the toys.
Another Casali design, the 969 offers gigantic curved windows to offer a crystal effect on the entire main deck saloon which layout offers unseen before volumes.

They all come with fully custom interiors manufactured in house, making them highly desirable on the second hand market. Four of the five yachts in the Canados product line are new models.
Oceanic Yachts 95’ GT by Canados
The production series of the 90’ prototype has now seen its length extended. The hull is 1.5 meter longer while the superstructure has been extended almost two meters. Available with two different power packages, MAN or Caterpillar, as standard, the 95’ is now also offered to the market in a GT version.
The GT version uses the exact same platform as the Fast Expedition Yacht but the upper deck as been replaced by a gigantic flying bridge.
The GT version offers a top speed of 27/28 knots and unseen before outdoor spaces, even on any 35-meter yacht.
The GT version comes with a four-cabin layout and will be the ideal platform for clients willing to ally the virility of the Explorer style and the advantages or a mega open yacht.

Hulls are in GRP and superstructures in Kevlar/Aramat.
