Best of the Best 2013: Semicustom Yachts: Canados 120
The Canados 120 (+39.06.5633.9732, www.canados.com) is the largest yacht to date from the more than 60-year-old Italian shipyard Canados. Delivered in July and christened Far Away by its Russian owner, the first Canados 120 features a nearly 650-square-foot flybridge plus a half deck for the wheelhouse and two lower decks. Far Away sleeps eight guests in four cabins, two of which are master suites. The interior, from the Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski, features oak floors and walls and has gray leathers and light-colored marble throughout. Canados offers a variety of interior configurations for the 120-footer, with options including a library, an office, and fireplaces. Options for the exterior include port and starboard drop-down balconies and a spacious beach deck at the stern, part of which lowers into the water to serve as a submerged swim platform.
