Italy’s Canados says Hull No. 1 of the Oceanic Yachts 140 Fast Expedition has been sold. Construction is underway, with delivery scheduled in March 2022.
The 140 is the flagship model in the builder’s Fast Expedition series, and Hull No. 1 will be the largest yacht Canados has built to date.
According to the shipyard, the yacht will also be the first in Europe powered by triple Caterpillar C32 B Series engines. Range is expected to be more than 6,000 nautical miles at 10 knots, and about 800 nautical miles at 21 knots. Top speed is projected to be 25 knots.
Creature comforts will include a nearly 1,200-square-foot aft deck with a hot tub, sun pads, a bar, dining and a day head. The owner’s stateroom will be on the upper deck. The tender bay will house a nearly 20-foot dinghy, and a garage for two electric cars will be at the transom. When the cars are in use, the garage converts to a beach club.
Interiors are by Rome-based Michela Reverberi Studio, which previously collaborated with Canados on the Canados 888. The 140′s interior is expected to have a mix of saddle-stitched leather panels, washed gold color-embossed hard leather panels, bronze inserts, and woods including tay, rosewood and mahogany. According to Canados, “The entire main deck will be dressed with a tatami-textured European oak silver finished with gold dust.”
Where is the first Oceanic Yachts 140 Fast Expedition likely to cruise? The builder says the owner plans to base the yacht in the French Riviera.
