Construction photos released of third Canados 120
by Miranda Blazeby
The 37 metre yacht, which is due to be launched in April next year, has been decked and lower bulkheads have been installed.
The hull composite work was carried out at the yard’s fibreglass facility south of Rome before the boat was towed to Ostia to be hauled out of the water and moved into the assembly shed.
The superstructure of the yacht is now being laminated in Kevlar and will be assembled in mid September. The superstructure body work will then be coupled to the hull and the yacht will be ready for painting before the end of the year.
The yacht has already been sold and is the owner’s third Canados.
Exterior design of the 120 Caesar is undertaken in-house by the Canados design office while the interior styling brief has been handed to Cristiano Gatto.
The owner has opted to replace the usual tender garage aft for a larger beach club. His specification for a five metre tender will also see the installation for a heavy duty tender lift with a 1.5 tonne capacity.
The yacht will also include floor to ceiling main deck side glass walls and a raised pilothouse equipped with navigation, communication and monitoring systems which enable the crew to take control of the yacht from a single position.
The boat's interior will feature a selection of marble and wood chosen by the owner. Oversized saloon windows will look out onto the ocean while the galley will be custom made by Italian kitchen designer Boffi.
Accommodation is for ten guests in five cabins with the owner's suite, featuring two fold-out terraces, located on the fore section of the main deck. The four guest suites meanwhile will sit down below.
Power will come from a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines developing 2,600hp for a top speed of 27 knots and cruising speed of 23 knots.
