Gladiator 428

St Tropez, Miami, Porto-Cervo, Monaco, Palm Beach, Ibiza, Dubrovnik, Acapulco, St Barth, Cannes, Capri… whatever your playground, the
428 Gladiator is the ultimate “Must Have” day-cruiser.
No need to disembark from a super-yacht to arrive in style!

The 428 Gladiator is fast, from 40 to 52 knots depending on the engine package, dry, and will take you anywhere in the utmost comfort.
The ride is surely the softer you’ve ever experienced. The naval architecture is not the only determining factor that makes
the Gladiator from far the best boat in the category. 
The high tech construction process using only the best components and equipments makes it THE day cruiser “par excellence”.

The outdoor space makes it the ideal platform for family and friends cruising; from its large aft walk-around sun pad hiding the Seabobs®
garage, its external dining area and lounge sofas fore of the helm station, everything has been designed for fun and safety with a true
luxury feeling. The 428 Gladiator is the smallest boat ever built by our Iconic Shipyard, Canados.

You will enjoy the user-friendly technologies incorporated in our extensive standard package.
The 16 inches touch-screen “Crystal Cockpit” allows controlling the entire boat including engines parameters, autopilot, depth sounder, chart plotter and sound system.

Our standard control package includes a powerful bow thruster that can either be controlled independently or via a maneuvering joystick connecting it with the drives.
The carbon fiber dashboard will live your friends breathless. The helmsman’s experience is enhanced by the two lounge-sofas to fore allowing for a real social life when steering the boat. The entire cockpit is protected by the two Speedster styled laminated glass windshields and a
carbon fiber hard top. The LED lighted control switches commanding all the organs of the boat are participating in giving a hightech atmosphere.

The fit and finish in every details are the exact same as our much larger yachts. From the paint job to the hardware and equipment, everything is state-of-the-art. Since 1946, Canados delivers only the best.

Roman designer Marco Casali is responsible for the 428 Gladiator stunning timeless design. Casali managed to give the boat a posh, aggressive and above all practical design, including the custom hand made interiors build from the finest wood veneers and components by our artisans.
Thanks to its 4,19 meter beam at the windshields base, the cabin is wide and comfortable, allowing for a good night sleep or a comfy afternoon nap. The bathroom is also roomy and nice with its skylight and easy maintenance concept.

As part of the standard, the hull of the Gladiator 428 is painted with a choice of 15 custom colors made for Canados by Dupont®.
If you have a specific lucky color, we can offer, as an option, a choice of over 400 different colors, flat or metallic.

The deck comes in light premium grey gelcoat. Here too, you can customize your Gladiator by painting the deck and cockpit furniture to the color of your choice. We offer unlimited color combinations with 5 different painted zones so your boat can be truly unique.

The synthetic high-tech teak deck can be chosen from 8 different colors as well as the external upholstery which attention to details and stitching will blow you away.

The Gladiator 428 is the only boat that size which entire cockpit architecture has been designed step less. It is surely an aesthetical factor of the best effect when looking at the boat from stern, it is also a major advantage in terms of comfort.
Kids and guests are able to move around the entire cockpit, even in rough water navigation, without any risks of missing a step. This concept also optimizes the usable space, which you will really enjoy when the boat is at anchor.
Accessing the foredeck is not any more reserved to tightrope walkers.
The central integrated stairwell makes the foredeck easily accessible.

In short, the Gladiator 428 brings glamour, luxury and performances into a reasonably sized day-cruiser.
