Canados Nearly Sinks in Castellammare di Stabia

A 26 meter Canados super yacht hit a reef outside Castellammare di Stabia, to the South of the Gulf of Naples on the early afternoon of 30th May.  No one was injured in the accident, the Canados super yacht was lucky to have find assistance and was later towed to a shipyard for repairs.  The damage is reported to be of minimum average entity, though the 2021 season might have to be called off for the super yacht.  The towage operation involved a big barge with crane and a tug boat on the same day, and was completed on late evening.   
The Canados in this accident is an 86 model, a success story for the Cantieri Navali di Ostia, selling in 46 units in a production run of thirteen years.  The Canados 86 was born from the 82S with the first unit of this sold to famous Formula One drive Giancarlo Fisichella in 2002.  A smaller offshoot 80 model using the same shortened hull was also made. The Canados 86 was a semi custom 26 meter motor yacht with a four double cabins layout, and two crew cabins. Possibly calling it semi-custom is a bit short as viewing of these super yachts have always showed one to be different to the other. Power was from Cat, Man, or MTU engines from 1400 to 1800hp with speeds reaching 33 knots with the larger engine option.
