The new sport yacht, Gladiator 90 will be launched next year, and is expected to be one the fastest yachts of this type on the market.


The Gladiator 90 replaces the former Canados 90 Open. It will be available in three different power packages, making it one of the most versatile sport yachts on the market.

The twin engine versions will have top speeds of 33 knots and 48 knots, while the triple engine model has a cruising speed of 46 knots and a top speed of 55 knots. It has a cruising range of up to 480nm.

The Rome based shipyard, which started in 1946, was bought at the end of last year by Frenchman Michel Karsenti. The new Gladiator Yacht is one of three lines to be produced this year.

The three versions of the Gladiator 90 will be available in either a three or four cabin layout, with separate crew quarters, crew dinette and galley on the aftpart of the lower deck. This buffers the engine room from the owner and guest accommodation.

The twin-engine versions will be offered with the typical Canados custom made traditional interiors. The triple engine version will feature high-tech honeycomb furniture for additional weight, and the entire superstructure will be Kevlar/Aramat with numerous carbon fibre reinforcements.

The hull in all three versions will be vacuum bagged to offer even more strength and integrity.

The aft deck space has been increased on the 90 foot yacht by creating a partially “suspended” sun pad above the swim platform. As a result, the deck offers a double saloon/dining area for up to nine people, which is protected by a retractable awning concealed in the superstructure.

The foredeck is equipped with a second dining/saloon area in front of the windshield. It can accommodate up to eight guests. A 3.85 metre tender can be stored in the Gladiator 90’s garage.

The main deck will feature a saloon with two face-to-face sofas. It has one-piece side windows, offering continuous ocean views. There is also a sliding hard top.

Gladiator 90 will be launched in spring 2017.
