Canados 808 Maximus Motor Yacht

New Canados 808 Maximus - ready for summer 2017

Italian yacht builder Canados announced that they will launch the Canados 808 in July 2017.

Canados 808 Maximus is a 24m luxurious motor yacht with the DNA of a 30m yacht designed by Marco Casali – Too Design. The designer had also an eye on maximum privacy for the crew, the guests and the owners. She will be powered by two MAN V12 engines with 1,900 hp to power her up to a top speed between 25 and 30 knots. The shipyard uses Kevlar/Aramat to reduce the top weight for more stability.

The yacht offers a 3.40-meter tender garage to store a RIB or PWC. Another tender with a size up to 4-meters can be stored on the swim platform that is also a lift with a capacity of 800 kg.

The foredeck has a lounge and sunbathing area for more privacy in marinas when the yacht is moored with the stern.

The model is available in a four or five cabin version. One of the general arrangements has two owner suites. One on the main deck, the other one on the lower deck with two twin guest cabins.

The other layout has a VIP suite on the lower deck with two guest cabins. The five-cabin version retains the master suite on the main deck and on the lower deck four guest cabins.

The current yacht that is under construction will be delivered in the two-owner version.

Designer Marco Casali comments:

“As we call it internally, the Canados 808 project 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.”

The flybridge has a dining area for up to eight persons and a round table lounge area with another sunbathing area.

The salon invites with a bright interior design and big windows for a great view over the sea. At the aft area is the dining room with 180-degree glass panels.

Yacht Designer Marco Casali comments:

“Tomahawk is conceived as a yacht inside a ship, because of its comfort qualities. The owner’s cabin (75 sqm) lies at the bow with its forward facing windows overlooking a 21 square meters private terrace with its sun bathing platform and Jacuzzi: a clear 180-degree view in total privacy. The guest area in the lower deck is connected to the gym-spa area with windows overlooking the beach club. The guests and the owner may reach the beach area, the pool and the water directly without passing through the saloons. A unique dining area is hosted in the bow with an American bar and a cinema/karaoke space. The crew area is also larger than usual and focuses on the quality of the space.”

Liberty (32m) by Columbus and Marco Casali

The Italian superyacht brand Columbus Yachts (part of Palumbo Group) started the construction of the 32m "Liberty" designed by Marco Casali - Too Design.

There is very much freedom in developing of each unit and to enjoy the yacht. Long journeys at 12 knots with low emission and diesel consumption or fast stages at 20 knots with an award winning hybrid propulsion developed by Palumbo Group. This yacht concept has the freedom to design a custom layout, interior design and also exterior by the client.

The Liberty concept was developed for owners who love wide spaces and being close to the sea. Liberty provides a new way of deck volume. The upper deck was removed and has a large sun deck with an area for sunbathing, dining (up to 14 people) and a fly bridge. The reduced height benefits also the stability of the yacht. But a raised pilot house version is also available.

For example, the deck saloon area is fully flat with full height windows and is offered in different layout with or without galley on it. The bow area is provided for hosting tenders (up to 6m) and toys with a front facing sofa but could be managed also as a free set up space for sunbeds, tables etc.

The interior design is following the Liberty name of the range. Space could host free furniture allowing each owner in expressing his own style.

For the lower deck, the crew quarters could be equipped with a full galley or an independent entrance at the bow. The guest cabins could be from 3 to 5 until 6 total ones with the Owner on the main deck.

The owners’ cabin could be positioned in the aft part of the lower deck to emphasize the full beam area or on the main deck with the raised pilot house option wit a full front view.
