The Gladiator 428 is among four new models that Canados is planning to launch next year.

At the Cannes Yachting Festival, Canados organized its first press conference since it was recently acquired and unveiled four new projects for 2017.

New owner Michel Karsenti and Canados’ management team gave an overview of the shipyard, which they said will be debt-free by late October.

The Gladiator 428 was designed by Roman designer Marco Casali, collaborating with Michel Karsenti and Gianluca Fanelli, the head of new project developments at Canados.

The Gladiator 822 from Canados, also designed by Casali, is a sport boat that the builder said will be available in various versions and power and transmission packages, offering top speeds ranging from 34 to 58 knots.

The Canados 969 Coliseum is a 97-foot raised pilothouse yacht under 30 meters LOA and under a 24-meter load line. The yacht offers a main-deck owner’s suite with a split-level bathroom and a private foredeck terrace.

The Oceanic Yachts 95 GT by Canados is a production series of the 90-foot prototype that is seeing its length extended. The hull is 4.9 feet longer, and the superstructure has been extended almost 6-1/2 feet. Available with two power packages, MAN or Caterpillar, as standard, the 95-foot yacht is also now offered in a GT version.
