First Canados 888 Evo yacht under construction

Italian yard Canados has opened up about its forthcoming Canados 888 Evo yacht, which is due to get a public debut at next month’s Cannes Yachting Festival.

Currently under construction in Ostia, this 27.02 metre in-house design 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.

The 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 is taking shape at the yard and 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.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the first Canados 808 Maximus, which is also to be revealed at Cannes 2017.
