The new Canados 92′ Gladiator RD Series is truly a step above the pack in the market of fast super day cruisers with superior performances and comfort. Powered with twin Man or triple MAN 2000 HP and surface drives or twin MTU 2600 HP, she will be capable of speeds in excess of 50 knots, thanks to an exceptional SIDAC hull design build in infusion and full carbon fiber infused deck. With such performances, she will be, bar none, the fastest production luxury super day cruiser on the market. The 919 RD Series is an evolution of the world acclaimed Canados 90’ Open which was already the only 4-cabin enclosed hard top sport yacht to run at a top speed in excess of 48 knots. The Gladiator 919 RD Series High-tech construction and superior engineering will make her a truly new breed of yachts which puts in common in a single package the concept of a giga center-console with the thrill of an offshore powerboat and the comfort and luxury of a super yacht. Despite being a true “open” yacht, her double-curved one-piece windshield has been studied to deflect air flow so guests can enjoy the ride without being troubled by the wind, even at the highest speeds. Her automotive inspired design is simply spectacular, especially when seen from the transom, with her diamond head garage door hiding the tender and a jetski and its massive engine room air extractors. The step-less cockpit offers almost 65 square-meter of space with a central suspended 9 square meter sun pad aft, face-to-face sofas with coffee tables, side bar, central dining table, side chaise-longues and outdoor galley. Opposite to the bar, is an independent access to the superb Boffi galley and crew quarters for three in two cabins. The central spaceship styled dashboard will come with integrated Boëning touchscreen displays and has been conceived like a stand-alone console allowing for perfect integration of all the electronics. The access to the fore deck is protected by high structural bulwarks making it safe to move around the boat underway even for youngsters. A vast fore dining/lounging area has been designed and can be protected by sun awnings with sail shaped microperforated fabric and carbon fiber poles with tensioners. The sun pad has also been recessed for guests and is shaped to the form of your
body so you will feel safe even when the boat runs fast. bBelow deck, the Gladiator 919 RD Series will offer the luxury and level of finish of any superyacht of much larger dimensions. Like every Canados build yacht, the interior will be made to measure and customized to client’s taste. Any wood, any Poltrona Frau leather, any lacquered wood finishing or floor type is left to client’s choice. The only invisible difference with a conventional superyacht comes from the manufacturing of the furniture which high-tech core structure will be made of lightweight honeycomb panels. Available either in three or four cabins, both versions of the 919 will come with a full beam master suite with sofa, desk/vanity, and separated galley and crew quarters for three. The owner will particularly enjoy the height of the side windows allowing to see the water from the bed. The master suite being separated from the engine room by the galley, crew quarters and its bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, the owner will even be able to take a nap while the boat is under way as the distance from the engine room is such that the crew quarters act as an additional sound buffing shield. The 3-cabin version will come with a TV/family room. Both, galley and crew quarters will be accessible from the aft deck to allow for more privacy for owners and guests and will have direct access to the engine room. At her constant cruising speed of 36/44 knots depending on the engine package, the Gladiator 919 RD will excess the velocity of any other sport yacht of her size and will be able to keep running at this speed even in a serious chop up to over a meter fifty. At full speed, the GPS will show 51 + knots and one will simply be amazed by the agility and responsiveness of the steering using either the wheel or the standard joystick system incorporated in the helmsman armrest. The Gladiator 919 RD Series is offered standard with gyro stabilization system, all painted hull, deck and hardtop. The only two available extras will be the domotic management system and MTU power package for those who would prefer a twin-engine solution. This model will also be available with conventional propeller shafts for those who are not willing to go so fast.
