Canados has unveiled details of Gladiator 90, a 27m sport yacht and the first the the new Gladiator line. The yach has been designed to replace the former Canados 90 Open and is expected to be ready to touch the water in the spring of 2017.

With a 6.3m beam, the Canados Gladiator 90 has been designed to be the fastest open yacht in its size available on the market, the boatbuilder claims.

The yacht will be available in three different power packages. One version is equipped with MAN V12-1900 diesel engine coupled to V-Drives. The yacht will be capable of a cruising speed of 27 knots and will top 33 knots, the builder claims.

A second option consists of twin MTU 16V 2000 M94L (2,600hp) coupled to Arneson Drives. In this version the yacht would be capable to cruise at 42 knots and top 48-plus knots.

Alternatively, the yacht is fitted with triple MAN V12-1900 coupled to top Systems Surface Drives and she would be capable of cruising at 46 knots with a maximum of 55 knots.

The twin-engine versions will be offered with Canados custom-made, traditional interiors while the triple engine version feature high-tech honeycomb furniture structures to gain weight.

With the triple engine package, the entire superstructure will be Kevlar/Aramat with numerous carbon fibre reinforcements to sustain higher performances.

For all of the three versions, hulls will be vacuum bagged. The yacht will be available in either three or four cabin layout with separate crew quarters, crew dinette and galley on the aft part of the lower deck buffering the engine room from the owner’s and guests’ accommodations.

The garage on the Gladiator 90 has been designed to host a 3.8m tender and a PWC.
