Canados Yachts reveals 969 Coliseum project
by Chris Jefferies
Italian yard Canados Yachts has revealed a new project for 2017 called the 969 Coliseum.
Developed in collaboration with Marco Casali, this raised pilot house yacht measures 29.50 metres LOA and has a beam of 6.62 metres.
Accommodation is for up to ten guests, split between a full-beam main-deck master stateroom, two VIP suites and a further two double cabins, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to four people.
The aft deck features a central gangway, allowing for two tender garages, one houses a 4 metre tender and another can store a pair of Jet Skis. Further forward, the full-beam saloon allows for a 65-inch television screen and a pair of symmetrical L-shaped sofas.
The master suite is comparable to a 35 metre yacht, Canados claims, with a split-level bathroom offering a shower, sauna, vanity unit, and his and hers ensuites.
The Canados 969 Coliseum would be offered with a range of engine options from Caterpillar and MAN, with the largest generating 5,400hp for a top speed in excess of 30 knots. The total fuel capacity of 9,750 litres means a cruising range in excess of 500 nautical miles.
A Seakeeper stabilisation system would be fitted as standard, along with a sliding fabric roof. Exterior relaxation spaces are plentiful, including a convertible foredeck seating area, which can be set up as either a dinette or sunpads.
The Canados 969 Coliseum was announced at the Cannes Yachting Festival, when the Italian yard also revealed that it is working on six new projects for 2017, including the Gladiator 822 motor yacht and the Oceanic 95 GT.
