This delivery represents a true milestone for the Rome based iconic yachtbuilder, as it is the first new model to be launched since Michel Karsenti acquired the shipyard.

She has been build and delivered from scratch in...5 monthes (!), and delivered with one day delay on the contractual date, despite the client’s change orders.

During the launch of the boat, a gathering was organized with the shipyard personnel and the client. On this occasion, Karsenti gave a speech addressed to the Canados employees and déclared : "I am naturally proud of seeing our first new model build in a record time going in the water today. I am even prouder, that despite the technical complication of this specific model and her 5-month built time, she is delivered only one day late despite 12 days of permissible delays according to contract. But my true pride is to work with people like you. You’ve been working 7 days a week to make a client happy, to deliver a superb yacht and this is the true testimony of the shipyard’s philosophy and what makes Canados so unique..."

The owner and his wife, who were present at the gathering, went on and offered a quick speech to the Canados workers saying: "When we signed the contract, we were convinced that the boat could not be finished at the promised date, but the Oceanic 76’ GT was really the most desirable boat to us. Today, I can say that we both can’t believe what we see. The respect of the delivery time, the incredible quality in the smallest details is beyond expectations! We are, today, very proud to be part of the Canados family. The boat you’ve build for us is is truly a super-yacht in a small boat package. We previously had 5 boats build in Italy and let me say it, Canados represents the epitome of Italian Excellence. Thank you so much!"

Like the larger Oceanic Yachts models, the 76’ benefits from Canados’ unique “Displaning” stepped hull that allows running the vessel at low speed in total comfort with reduced fuel consumption. This hull concept still allows running the boat at planning speeds from 26 to 30 knots depending on the power package selected by the client.

Twin Caterpillar C18 Acert developing 1,150 HP, which allows for cruising speeds from 16 to 20 knots and a maximum speed of 25 knots, powers the first model. The Oceanic 76’ offers – exceptional outdoor spaces both on the aft deck and the oversized flying bridge entirely protected by its wing shaped hardtop.

The entire superstructure is made of Kevlar/Aramat to increase stability by reducing the center of gravity to the maximum.

Equipped with a Seakeeper 16 gyro stabilization system, the Oceanic 76’ will stay side to a 2 meter swell without roll allowing guests to comfortably have lunch on the flying bridge.

The all new Oceanic 76’ GT is available in either 3 or 4 cabin versions (all on the lower deck) and two different main deck versions with either a fully enclosed galley to the front or an open American styled galley aft. The later opens both on the main saloon and aft deck which is an essential area of life onboard with its open-air dining table and its vast U shaped saloon. The tender garage hosts a 3,20 meter tender while the standard hydraulic swimming platform allows to carry a three- seat PWC or a 4-meter tender.
