Canados Yachts in Italy has introduced the 90-foot Gladiator, a model that will replace the 90 Open in the builder’s line. The first 90 Gladiator is expected to launch in spring 2017.

Owners may choose a three- or four-stateroom layout. Depending on the weight of the engine package the owner selects, the interior décor will be either traditionally constructed or built of high-tech honeycomb to reduce weight.

For triple-engine installations, the superstructure will be constructed of Kevlar and Aramat—and carbon-fiber reinforcements—to withstand performance at more than 55 knots.

The Canados Gladiator will be launched during spring 2017.

Power package No. 1: twin 1,900-horsepower V12 MANs coupled to V-drives, producing a 27-knot cruise speed and a 33-knot top end. Power package No. 2: twin 2,600-horsepower MTU 16V2000 M94L engines coupled to Arneson drives, generating a 42-knot cruise and a 48-knot top speed.

The Gladiator 90 will be available in different power packages for owners to choose from.
