Luxury Yacht Builder Canados Sold: Legendary Rome-based luxury yacht builder Canados was sold to Michel Karsenti in late December. Established in 1946, Canados has successfully launched more than 700 vessels measuring up to 36 meters in length.
Over the years, Karsenti has had more than 12 boats built at Canados, including his own 2014 brand Oceanic Yachts, which started business using Canados as a construction contractor. Karsenti indicated that the purchase was a well-thought move. Initial tasks include renovating production facilities as well as two marinas that are part of the shipyard. He also plans to introduce new products to the market with the aim of building haute couture and not high production.
Canados will begin work on three product lines to be introduced soon: Canados Yachts, Gladiator Yachts and Oceanic Yachts.
Canados Yachts exhibits a modern classic lineup of five flybridge models with timeless elegance and fully custom interiors that make them highly sought after on the secondary market. Hulls and superstructures, designed by the shipyard’s in-house studio, are in GRP.
Gladiator Yachts present a lineup of sport yachts that will be available in sport and performance versions. The sport versions will be equipped with propeller shafts and GRP construction, while the performance versions will be fitted with surface drive transmissions and hull and superstructures in vacuum-based Kevlar/Aramat with carbon fiber reinforcements.
Oceanic Yachts is a line of fast expedition vessels based on the company’s unique displaning stepped hull concept. This allows the boat to run at long range speed with optimized stability and low consumption. Hulls are in GRP and superstructures in Kevlar/Aramat.
