Project: Canados 822 Gladiator

Another design from Rome designer Marco Casali for Canados, the conceptual idea of the 822 Gladiator took the yard technical office months of work, calculations and researches.  The aim was to create a versatile super sport yacht.  This 24 plus meter super sport yacht is available in four different engine packages allowing her to top, depending on the chosen power package, from 34 up to 60 knots while offering unparalleled comfort.  The tender garage door has been designed and structurally calculated to offer a built-in lounge on the water. When on the aft deck, your guest will be blown away by the available space and social areas almost twice what the competition offers.  The luxury feeling is strengthened by the total absence of visible deck hardware as cleats and winches are hidden in their own compartments. Even the Seabobs are hidden in side garages.  The saloon glass door is divided in three panels. To port, the vertical panel slides down to transform the area into an outdoor bar while the two vertical panels slide to starboard.  Like on every Canados build yacht, there is a suggested layout, but the end choice is yours as everything is custom built in-house. The standard offering for the main deck comes in two versions with either two side gigantic sofas or with two sofas on starboard and a dining area with loose seats. In both cases, the crew tasks will be conducted without interference with guests as access to the galley, crew quarters and engine room is hidden behind the bar.  Further to the front, the helm station with its pantograph side door opens to the side deck while on the opposite, a dinette with a lounge seat have been integrated for the run-it-yourself kind of owners, so they can be at the helm while socializing with family and friends.  One of the signature and uniqueness of the 822 Gladiator is the laminated glass windshield made of three panels. The central panel opens up allowing guests to access the fore-deck and its integrated sun pad and dinettes.With this feature, when at anchor, you can open up the windshield and enjoy a natural flow of breeze inside the main deck.  Down below, the Gladiator 822 is available in various different layouts with three or four cabins.  In both cases, the master suite enjoys an unseen before comfort with a full beam configuration.  Marco Casali will design any specific interior layout and decoration, or the Canados design team can work with any interior designer of your choice. In  any case, the Gladiator 822 interiors will be delivered according to your tastes and requirements.  For the most family oriented owners, the boat will be powered by twin Man 1550hp or twin Man 1800hp coupled to V-Drive offering a cruising speed of 28 knots and 31 knots while the top speed will be 34 knots or an easy 38 knots.  For those willing to travel fast, the twin 1900hp Man with Top Systems surface drives will allow to reach 38 knots cruising speed and 44 knots top.  For the most speed addicted the Canados 822 Gladiator is also offered in a triple engine configuration with hull and deck entirely made of Kevlar/Aramat with carbon fiber reinforcements that will allow for a top speed flirting with the 60 knot mark.
