Italian boatbuilder Canados Yachts said the Gladiator 90, a new sport yacht that will replace the Canados 90 Open, is set to debut in the spring of 2017.

The 90-footer will be available in three power packages:

Twin V12 MAN 1,900-hp engines coupled to V-drives. In this version the boat will be capable of a 27-knot cruising speed and will top 33 knots.

Twin MTU 16V 2000 M94L 2,600-hp engines coupled to Arneson drives, giving the yacht a 42-knot cruising capability and 48-plus knots at top speed.

Triple V12 MAN 1,900-hp engines coupled to Top System surface drives. The yacht will be capable of cruising at 46 knots and will top 55 knots.

The three versions will be available in three- and four-cabin layouts with separate crew quarters, crew dinette and galley on the aft part of the lower deck buffering the engine room from the owner’s and guests’ accommodations.

The twin-engine versions will be offered with typical Canados custom-made traditional interiors; the triple-engine version will feature high-tech honeycomb furniture structures to gain weight.

The company also announced the sale of its Canados 76 Classic Hull. The owner previously owned a 75-foot Riva.

The company said it has seen increased demand in Europe, North America and Mexico. Edward Sacks, a veteran of the U.S. yachting business, has joined Canados and coordinates business-to-business commercial operations by being the link between the shipyard and the brokerage community.

Canados said a plan to revamp the shipyard’s infrastructure is moving according to plan. Dredging of the company’s marina is underway, and the new cover of its 246-foot-long shed was being replaced at the end of April.

Located in Ostia, which is near Rome, the shipyard was founded in 1946 and said it has delivered more than 700 yachts as long as 118 feet.

It was recently acquired by French entrepreneur Michel Karsenti, who said the company will produce three product lines — Canados Yachts, Gladiator Yachts and Oceanic Yachts.
