5. Canados 969 Coliseum project engineering completed
Announced during last year’s Cannes Yachting Festival, the new Canados 969 Coliseum project engineering has recently been completed. The timing is essential considering the 808, with a similar concept, will be launched in July and will be presented during the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival in September. Thus, with the 969’s hull mould ready while deck and superstructure moulds are to be completed late October it will allow the yard to deliver the first 969 Coliseum on time for the 2018 season. By that time, the new Canados fly-bridge line will count four models: 81’, 88’, 97’ and 120’.
