Mr Michel Karsenti was revealed as the new owner of Canados after having been very involved in the shipyard’s activities over the past few years. He has built more than 12 yachts at the Rome shipyard, including his yacht brand, Oceanic Yachts, starting in 2014.
Karsenti said, “I’m fascinated, year after year, visit after visit at Canados to still have the same magical feeling of how strong maritime traditions are embedded in workers’ DNA.
“I cannot say if this is linked to the 70 years the shipyard has been in business, or due to the fact Canados is located in the world’s richest region in terms of architecture, style and history Rome is known for, but I can surely say that the same feeling is shared by all the clients visiting us.”
According to Karesenti, Canados will now focus on the renovation of the production facilities, including the two marinas that form part of the shipyard. He also revealed that Canados will soon unveil new products to the yachting market, with Karsenti stating that their aim “is to continue building ‘haute couture’ and surely not go for high production numbers.”
