Canados signs contract for first Oceanic 140 explorer superyacht

Following the news in November 2013 that Italian superyacht builder Canados is planning a range of fast Oceanic explorer yachts, the yard announces the sale of its first 42m (140') project in the range.

Lamination of the hull is now complete and the superstructure is being constructed in the state-of-the-art material Kevlar/Aramat which offers extraordinarily lightweight strength. The interior will be by Rome-based designer Michela Reverberi and will feature an owner's suite occupying the entire upper deck and including panoramic views, a secluded terrace facing forward and a private dining area with loungers. The flybridge will have a bar, sunpads and a full bathroom.

On the technical side, the Oceanic 140 be a 'DiLec Version,' standing for the diesel-electric propulsion package offering. The hull design is by Arrabito Naval Design in collaboration with the shipyard's chief naval architect Giovanni Senatore. The Oceanic 140 features a twin-stepped hull designed to reduce friction and a bulbous bow. She is meant to take advantage of the 'best of both worlds' of displacement and planing hull yachts, offering a range of 5,400 nautical miles in displacement mode at 8.5 knots while performance improves dramatically at semi-planing speeds to a maximum of 27 knots. Triple 2,600hp MTU engines coupled to Fortjes counter-rotating propeller pod drives give her a fuel consumption of under 50 litres per hour at 8.5 knots.

Completion of the Oceanic Yachts 140 is scheduled for early 2015. Canados sold the first 27.8m superyacht in its Oceanic Yachts line, the Oceanic 90, to a Russian owner this January. The 90 is due to be delivered in June 2014 and will debut at the Cannes Boat Show in 2014.
