Italy’s Canados Yachts launched the 76-foot Oceanic Yachts GT — the first model since French entrepreneur Michel Karsenti purchased the boatbuilder — and delivered the yacht to its new owner on Aug. 1.

Canados said the yacht was built and delivered from scratch in five months and was delivered with only one day’s delay on the contract date despite the client’s change orders.

Considered an entry-level model in the fast expedition vessel range, the yacht will be on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

“I am naturally proud of seeing our first new model build in a record time going in the water today,” Karsenti said at the launch.

“I am even prouder that despite the technical complication of this specific model and her five-month built time, she is delivered only one day late despite 12 days of permissible delays, according to contract. But my true pride is to work with people like you. You’ve been working seven days a week to make a client happy, to deliver a superb yacht, and this is the true testimony of the shipyard’s philosophy and what makes Canados so unique.”

The owner and his wife, who were at the gathering, went on and gave a brief speech to Canados workers.

“When we signed the contract, we were convinced that the boat could not be finished at the promised date, but the Oceanic 76-foot GT was really the most desirable boat to us,” they said.

“Today I can say that we both can’t believe what we see. The respect of the delivery time, the incredible quality in the smallest details, is beyond expectations! We are, today, very proud to be part of the Canados family. The boat you’ve build for us is is truly a superyacht in a small boat package. We previously had five boats built in Italy, and let me say it, Canados represents the epitome of Italian excellence. Thank you so much!”
