Two owner’s cabins for the first Canados 808

The project was originally introduced during the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival as project 777. Today this new Canados – Canados 808 Maximus – is under construction at Canados HQs (CANTIERI DI OSTIA) in Rome and will be officially presented to the public in September 2017. The first unit has been sold and will be based in Palma de Mallorca.

The boat will be powered with twin V12 MAN – 1,900 hp coupled to V-Drives that will allow the Maximus to offer a cruising speed in excess of 25 knots and a 30 knots top speed.

Fully customized with made in-house furniture from the industry highest quality standards, the Maximus will be available with two different fly bridge layouts and with two different 4-cabin GA. The first 808 will have two owner’s suites, one located on the main deck and the other on the lower deck with additional two twin cabins.

Designed by Rome based Marco Casali, the mission he was assigned with was extremely clear. This new model had to retain the “modern-classic” DNA of the 70 years old shipyard thus introducing new solutions to offer all the amenities and usage plan of a 30-meter + yacht.

“The Canados 808 project – comments Marco Casali – was created to merge the famous Canados heritage with new solutions seeking for more volumes and better use of space. Our main target was to create a very special space for the owner’s suite, fully independent from guest-quarters and on a higher level than the typical lower deck level. In order to achieve this result we had to stagger the main deck floor into three slightly different levels which also resulted in a large roof area fully equipped with a sofa and a sun pad. The main profile characteristic consists in the floor to ceiling curved side windows where the connection between exterior and interior from the sides is studied to literally disappear. The same path was followed for the aft deck and saloon layout that are joined by a circular veranda space that connects the two spaces and allow to turn them into a unique space (when open) or interfacing the dining area with one or the other space. The central transom stairs allow for a wider gangway, shaping a unique aft design with a deep platform and two side sofas in the beach area. Overall, I am extremely happy with the result of the overall design that was guided by strict guidelines from Canados. The shipyard remains extremely focused on retaining ease of usage, safety and practicality as main guidelines while still expressing the heritage of the brand.”
