New Canados Gladiator 428 pototype in build with production series
Canados Gladiator 428 – exceptional day-cruiser
The Canados Gladiator 428 will be the smallest boat produced by Canados in the last 30 years, but surely one that will grab massive attention. Despite being a true Canados in terms of DNA, quality and construction is a project apart from the rest, having been internally treated as a ‘separate business unit’ both in terms of inception as well as production and sales strategies.
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 engine packages: Twin Volvo Penta stern drives D6 – 400 hp, Twin Cummins QSB6.7 – 550 hp with top systems surface drives and Triple of Quad outboard engines. Depending on the power package, the Gladiator 428 is capable of speeds from 37 up to 55 + knots.
