First hull of Canados’ new Oceanic Yachts 76 line sold
by Laura Nineham
Canados has introduced a new entry-level model in its Oceanic Range, and revealed that construction has started on the first hull, which is already sold.
Available in three or four cabin versions, the Oceanic Yachts 76 also offers a choice of two main deck versions: one with a fully enclosed galley to the front, the other with an open American-style galley aft.
The Oceanic Yachts 76 will be similar to her larger sisterships, sharing the same "displaning" stepped hull that allows the yachts to run at low speed in total comfort, with reduced fuel consumption. This entry-level luxury yacht shares similar features to the other models in the range, such as the wing shaped hardtop that protects the oversized flybridge and other exceptional outdoor spaces.
Twin Caterpillar C18 1,150 HP engines give the Oceanic Yachts 76 cruising speeds of between 16 and 20 knots and a maximum speed of 26 knots.
The main deck boasts oversized continuous lateral glass panels that afford guests spectacular views of the water and flooding the saloon with light. The lower deck cabins also benefit from plenty of natural light thanks to recessed portholes.
The Oceanic Range was first introduced by Canados in 2013, designed to offer high performance and low fuel consumption in a luxury yacht with a transoceanic range and plenty of space to carry large toys and tenders. The 76 model, measuring 23.16 metres, is the smallest in the range. The largest, to date, is the Oceanic 140 that spans 42 metres, the first of which was sold in February 2014.
