Canados 120, Christened Far Away, Hits the Water

When’s the last time you saw two owner’s suites aboard a 119-foot megayacht? Those are among the highlights of Far Away, the newest Canados to launch.

Far Away is the first Canados 120 model, the flagship in the Italian builder’s flying-bridge series of large yachts and megayachts. She bears naval architecture and sleek exterior styling from Canados’ in-house team. Two fold-down balconies in the saloon and two in the dining area help bring the outside in, as do good-size ports on the main and lower decks. Canados’ in-house engineering department also gave Far Away a fold-down beach club. When the tender, the PWC, and two SeaBobs are offloaded, guests can use the area as a relaxation spot or a toy boarding and disembarking spot, with a handy shower and head as well.

Since the Canados 120 was intended for some speed, similar to her smaller sisters, the megayacht has a planing hull that reportedly permits a 29-knot top speed and 25-knot cruise speed, with a 2,400-hp MTU power package.

Like all Canados offerings, the Canados 120’s interior was open to the owner’s choice of designer. Far Away’s owner selected Francesco Paszkowski Design. Besides the two master cabins, both of which are below decks, the megayacht also unusually features just two guest cabins. Furthermore, one of those guest staterooms is on the main deck.

While metallic accents aren’t unheard of in yacht decors, the use of titanium makes Far Away out of the ordinary, too. Paszkowski selected varying shades of gray in fabrics, stonework, and stained woods like oak and ebony to complement the titanium. Though no images are yet available, it should make for a striking look within the 23’8” (7.25-meter) beam.

Far Away does have some features akin to other flying-bridge megayachts. The uppermost deck is devoted to alfresco relaxation and dining. Should anyone want shade, the fixed hardtop provides it. Another alfresco area toward the bow can have a bimini fitted when wanted. And, as is increasingly common aboard all megayachts, the lighting, air conditioning, and more are controlled via iPads, set up by the yard’s in-house team.
