First Canados 808 Maximus yacht sold and in build
by Chris Jefferies
The first Canados 808 Maximus yacht has been sold in an in-house deal and will be launched this summer, the Italian yard has revealed.
First introduced at the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival as Canados Project 777, the 808 Maximus will measure 24.6 metres LOA. Interior and exterior styling is courtesy of Marco Casali and the entire yacht will be built from Kevlar/Aramat composite.
The yard adds that the stepped hull is currently under construction at its Rome facility and the superstructure lamination will begin next month.
The first hull will be built with two owner’s cabins, one on the main deck and one on the lower deck, as well as a pair of twin rooms for a total capacity of eight guests, while the crew quarters can accommodate two more people.
As with every Canados yacht, the interior décor will be fully customised to the owner’s requirements with in-house crafted furniture. Other key features include wide side decks that lead to the foredeck lounging area.
Casali paid particular attention to the layout of the aft deck, which has been customised to allow for an extra-wide hydraulic gangway, suitable for wheelchair access. A pair of L-shaped sofas either side provide more al fresco relaxation options.
Power will come from a pair of 1,900hp MAN V12 engines for a sporty top speed of 30 knots. Other projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the first Gladiator 90 and the first 88 Evolution, both of which are due to hit the water before the end of the year.
