Cana­dos 808 Max­imus

Power & Motor Yacht - - DRAWING BOARD -

mod­ern take on the day­boat and fast ex­pe­di­tion yachts. But this pocket su­peryacht caught the eye, ship­ping the ameni­ties and fea­tures of a 100-footer in 80 feet 8 inches of LOA, but with­out sac­ri­fic­ing com­fort.

Marco Casali, a Rome-based de­signer, placed the mas­ter suite for­ward on the main deck, and so blew up the con­ven­tional ac­com­mo­da­tions plan be­low, with a va­ri­ety of lay­outs and up to four ad­di­tional state­rooms. The builder ex­pects the ex­panded ac­com­mo­da­tions will make the yacht more ap­peal­ing for char­ter.

All of the living ar­eas make the most of large hor­i­zon­tally ori­ented hull­side win­dows, while a beam of bet­ter than 20½ feet means no one is left want­ing for space. But when a boat gets to be this size, it’s what one does with the space that mat­ters. Cana­dos has added some in­ven­tive twists that heighten the su­peryacht feel. A cen­ter­line tran­som passerelle di­vides the af­ter­deck din­ing and loung­ing area into port and star­board “ter­races.” In­side, a pair of L-shaped set­tees echoes the sym­me­try of the hull de­sign. Mean­while, the yacht’s for­mal din­ing table is lo­cated aft in the salon—or for­ward on the af­ter­deck, de­pend­ing how the crew de­ploys a pair of curv­ing doors that en­cir­cle the din­ing table. Slide them for­ward and the din­ing table is out­side for al­fresco en­joy­ment, or aft to en­sconse the din­ner party within the salon. cana­ —Ja­son Y. Wood
