Canados 808 Maximus

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Originally introduced during the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival as project 777 – this new Canados which will be known as Canados 808 Maximus is currently under construction and will be officially presented to the public in September 2017 during the autumn boat shows.


The delivery of the first 808 is scheduled for early July. The stepped hull is currently under construction and will be out of the mould at the beginning of February while the deck and superstructure moulds are currently being produced. The entire superstructure which lamination will start mid-February will be made of Kevlar/ Aramat to reduce the weight and increase stability by lowering the barycenter.

The first 808 to be launched will be powered with twin V12 MAN – 1,900 hp coupled to V-Drives that will allow the Maximus to offer a cruising speed in excess of 25 knots and a 30 knots top speed.

As every Canados yacht, the 808 Maximus interiors will be fully customised with handcrafted furniture designed to the highest standards. The Maximus will be available with two different flybridge layouts and with two different four-cabin options. One of these offers two owner’s suites, one located on the main deck and the other on the lower deck with two additional twin cabins. The other available layout will be characterised by a VIP cabin and two guests cabins on the lower deck. As an option, the 808 can be ordered in a 5-cabin layout, retaining the main deck owner’s suite and four guest cabins on the lower deck, which is unique for a yacht that size.

Designed by Rome based Marco Casali, the mission he was assigned with was extremely clear. This new model had to retain the “modern-classic” DNA of the 70 years old shipyard thus introducing new solutions to offer all the amenities and usage plan shown in bigger 30-metre plus yacht.


In order to offer a vast aft deck and a superyacht feeling, the entire concept of this space has been revisited. The hydraulic gangway will be installed to the centre, allowing for a much wider one which will also be adaptable to wheelchairs.

The bow is equipped with a generous built-in lounge to enjoy breakfast or light lunch with friends and family. This area is protected by the standard microperforated shade with four carbon fiber poles with tensioners. Service will be facilitated by the proximity to the side galley door.


The master suite is installed two steps down the saloon level on the main deck. The usage of the entire volume of the roof and raised passageways allowed for the creation of an incredible master suite that offers 2.2 metres of headroom.


The starboard side of the transom is equipped with a 3.4 meter tender garage that will host either a RIB jet tender or a PWC. In the latter case, the swim platform is equipped with an 800 kg capacity tender lift for a tender of up to four metres.


The Canados 808 Maximus is absolutely unique, offering a main deck owner’s suite, far from the engine room, while its full beam lower deck VIP suite is the equivalent to the best master cabins found in competitive yachts. Where the Maximus is even more unique is in the fact she is available in a five-cabin version, making it the only yacht that size offering such capacity. A unique factor for charter operated yachts.
