Canados Yachts said it will be able to deliver the first of its new 969 Coliseum yachts in time for the 2018 season.

Canados Yachts said the project engineering was completed for the new 969 Coliseum.

The Italian builder said the timing is essential because the Canados 808, which has a similar concept, will be launched in July and presented during the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

Because the 969’s hull mold is ready, with deck and superstructure molds set to be completed in late October, Canados said it will be able to deliver the first 969 Coliseum in time for the 2018 season.

At that time the Canados flybridge line will have four models: 81-, 88-, 97- and 120-foot yachts.

Canados said the hull of the new 969 Coliseum is made in infusion and the superstructure’s lamination will be of Kevlar/Aramat to lower the center of gravity, making it easier for the standard Seakeeper gyro to stabilize the yacht.

Standard power on the 969 will be left to the owner’s choice among twin V12 MAN 1,900-hp engines coupled to V-drives; twin Caterpillar C32 Acert engines at 1,925 hp; or twin MTU 12V 2000 M96L engines at 1,920 hp that will allow the Coliseum to offer a cruising speed in excess of 23 knots and a top speed of 26 knots.

As an option the boat can be delivered with twin MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines at 2,600 hp for a cruising speed in excess of 25 knots and a top speed of 29 knots.

The 969 has been designed to offer a four- or five-cabin layout. In both cases the master cabin is on the main deck and comes with a split-level bathroom.
