Canados on the Rocks in Ponza

This morning a Canados nineteen meter motor yacht ended on the rock in Ponza, in Le Cantine, area of Forma on the North West part of the popular boating island.  The nineteen meter motor yacht had a wrong manoeuvre being paid dearly, with damage to keel being visible.  Fortunately the guests on board suffered no injuries beside a shock.  The DMD squad of the island did a temporary repair to the motor yacht, to allow towing to a repair yard on the same island.
This Canados is a 58 model, the entry level motor yacht build in full fiberglass from a design of Spadolini and to order by the famous Italian custom builder in around 1987 till 91, standard powered by twin GM 735hp or optional Man 820hp.  The Canados 58 evolved as the 18 model with a sloop style stern in around 1995 and bigger engine choice.  Over thirty Canados 58/18 models are known to be build, and today is considered a timeless classic by Italian motor yacht enthusiasts.
