First Canados 888 Evo yacht delivered
by Miranda Blazeby
The first Canados 888 Evo has been delivered after successfully completing her sea trials. The 27.02 metre yacht was delivered at an official ceremony attended by her owner on Monday, July 9 after successfully completing her sea trials on July 2. The yacht is expected to depart the Ostia yard in Italy for her inaugural cruise tomorrow, July 10.
The model is the successor to the popular Canados 86, which has spawned 46 hulls to date. Comprised of an Aramat/Kevlar hull and superstructure, vital statistics include a 6.4 metre beam and a maximum draught of two metres.
Key upgrades to note are the redesigned portholes, floor-to-ceiling windows, foredeck lounge and aft-facing cockpit sofa, which offers great views out to sea due to the low-profile transom.
The yard stresses that clients will be able to customise the interior to suit their wishes, with a wide range of wood, marble and Poltrona Frau leather available to choose from.
Hull number one features white china lacquer, Strato Olympico marble, high-gloss ebony and American walnut woodwork. Accommodation is for eight guests and three crew.
Other standout features include a four metre tender garage, a hardtop bimini and a Seakeeper gyroscopic stabiliser system, which promises a smooth cruising experience.
Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines that will allow for a top speed of 32 knots and a cruising range of 380 nautical miles at 28 knots, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 9,000 litres.
