The prototype is in build with production series following
The Gladiator 428 will be the smallest boat produced by Canados in the last 30 years.
She was designed by Marco Casali with very strict guidelines starting from a Canados in-house hull design. Canados wanted a solid yacht, thus the entire hull, structure and deck are made of vacuum bagged quadri-axial E-Glass vinyl-ester infused resin with balsa and Airex coring.
The boat comes standard with GPS Chart plotter, automatic pilot, depth sounder, bow thruster and maneuvering joystick. The standard equipment list also includes a “crystal cockpit” integrated dashboard.
The Gladiator 428 is available with four engine packages: twin Volvo Penta stern drives D6 – 400 hp, twin Cummins QSB6.7 – 550 hp with top systems surface drives or triple of Quad outboard engines. Depending on the power package, the Gladiator 428 is capable of speeds from 37 up to 55 + knots.
Canados 428 Gladiator will be present at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017.
