The philosophy of Canados comes from the deep maritime culture for which Rome has been known for since the ancient times. There is no secret as why we produce the world’s most beautiful and durable boats, it is just part of our DNA.We see ourselves as artisans crafting the most exceptional luxury toys.

The international reputation we’ve earned for our quality of construction is imperious, as testified by the loyalty of our clients. No concession has ever been made, nor will ever be made, in the quality of our production. Speed is not the only advantage of the Gladiator 431 Performance Series. While some boats can approach 50 knots, most of them will only reach this speed on flat water. With the Performance Series, you will be able to run hard even in the rough in all safety and comfort. With the standard engine package, the 431 achieves a continuous 41/42 knots cruising speed. The hull’s outer skin is made of Vinyl Ester offering the highest resistance to Osmosis blistering and UV with the first layers of the outer skin coat hand laminated while further lawyers are of Kevlar laminated using infusion process to offer optimal resistance strength and weight control. Hull and deck are painted in Awlgrip® metallic painting as standard where others use gelcoat that doesn’t offer the same aging, limited color choice and poor effect. The twin FPT 570 hp Evo engines coupled to JDM surface drives of the Gladiator 431 PS offer unseen before flexibility. Not only you will reach your destination in record with a low fuel consumption, 160 liters per hour at 41 knots, you will be able to run on plane at just 15 knots.

The ergonomic layout makes the Performance Series 431 very inviting even with a dozen people onboard. Under the sun pad, an ample garage offers lots of storage for toys while its aft section is inclined to be used as a back rest when seated on the swimming platform. At the center of the cockpit, the face-to-face sofas with its standard deployable electrically adjustable table offers space for an easy eight people lunch. The center console fore of the three bolster seats, allows to run the boat either seated of standing up laying against the retractable seat base.
When at the helm, you will remain impressed by the smooth ride and by how reactive the boat is to any impulsion given to the steering wheel. You will enjoy being able to run the boat with your friends enjoying the lateral fore chaise-longues and the fact you can now steer the boat and having a talk with people in front of you instead of behind you.
