First Canados flagship explorer Oceanic 143 prepares for launch

29 June 2022• Written by Katia Damborsky

Italian shipbuilder Canados is preparing to roll its 43.45 metre Canados Oceanic 143 out of the shed and into the water.

Marking the new flagship for the Rome-based yard, the yacht has an impressive nautical mile range of over 6,000 travelling at 8.5 knots, while her top speed is estimated at 23 knots.

Work on the project was paused, but has since resumed

The yacht is set to hit the water on June 30, following which she will undertake sea trials. Her debut appearance will be at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022.

This model follows in the successful footsteps of a number of other Oceanic models, including the 27.8 metre Oceanic 90, Tsa Tsa. The Oceanic concept focuses on balancing explorer capacities with long-range cruising to create a versatile and thoughtfully-designed superyacht.

The Oceanic series also includes an entry-level 23.7 metre Oceanic 76 model called Bull.

The bare hull was revealed in 2018

The yard previously announced that Rome-based designer Michela Reverberi will handle the interior. This will feature an owner's suite spanning the entire upper deck including panoramic views, a secluded terrace and a private dining area. The flybridge will have a bar, sunpads and a bathroom.

The hull design is by Arrabito Naval Design in collaboration with the shipyard's chief naval architect Giovanni Senatore. It features a twin-stepped hull, designed to reduce friction and a bulbous bow.

The Oceanic 143 was originally sold as an Oceanic 140 in 2014.
