Building and history

A sleek hull, with slender lines, built by the CANADOS shipyard in Lazio, Italy, according to the designs of the architectural firm Violati & Partners in 1986.
Hull in monolithic polyester, thickness 17mm. Reinforced deck, the teak has been replaced on the walkthroughs by an additional laminate with anti-slip finish, very clean. All bulkheads are laminated to the hull for great structural rigidity.
The boat has always been loved and maintained by her owners: the maintenance of the surfaces, mechanics, electricity and plumbing attest to a high professional level.
The original engine was replaced by a Nanni Diessel in 2009. Accessible through the hatch in the cockpit.
After a first life in the Mediterranean Sea, this yacht had a major refit in 2011, in Italy, and arrived in French Polynesia in 2017.
The boat underwent a major overhaul in 2023: complete overhaul of the engine and electrical system, installation of a davit, new two-sided solar panel and new bottom paint.
