The Canados boatyard of Rome presented the Canados 86 "Minou" at the last Genoa boat show. This is a fibreglass motor yacht with a deep V hull, a maximum speed of 33 knots and a cruising speed of 29, powered by two 1.800 HP engines. It is designed on three levels, the topmost being a flying bridge equipped with auxiliary steering controls, a relaxation area with spacious sundeck, a U-shaped sofa, two tables, a bar and, aft, the support for the tender. On the main deck there is a spacious sundeck forward while the cockpit, complete with dining table and sofa, is almost entirely sheltered by the extension of the flying bridge towards the stern.

There is also access to the saloon, which is very large and divided into two zones: a dining area with table and chairs and a leisure area with sofas, coffee tables, bar and multimedia accessories. Farther forward, the bridge has its control station on the port side and a semicircular sofa with round table on the starboard side. The lower deck is the night-time area, divided into six cabins: the owner's suite amidships, which occupies the entire width of the hull, two cabins aft with bunk beds and three forward, one with a double bed, one with bunk beds and the other a VIP cabin with double bed. All the cabins have a private bathroom.

The owner's suite, with separate shower and bathtub, is equipped with dressing table, office corner, sofa and dressing room. The interiors were all designed by the Salvagn studio in Rome which, to satisfy the customer's requirements, suggested a sober, very elegant style with a rational division of the internal spaces. The external lines are classic and characterised by the slender forms of the deckhouse side-windows, harmoniously inserted and letting plenty of light into the saloon and the dining area. Decisive but soft and well integrated lines give the Canados 86 that touch of personality which will never be outdated, thanks to her balanced form and the absence of stylistic exaggeration.
