Grady White just announced Announcing the new flagship, the Canyon 456 center console. Very spacious, technically sophisticated, and more richly appointed than any other outboard sportfishing boat. The new Grady White is a well-crafted, superbly engineered center console that represents a new level of elegance and sophistication among outboard powered fiberglass boats of any size, and likewise has by far the widest beam in the category. It is also the largest unsinkable boat of its kind.

The Canyon 456 reveals in every inch and every detail so many of the reasons Grady-White has a following of raving fans. The Canyon 456 offers a perfect blending of tough battlewagon fishing machine and superior cruising yacht. With onboard storage for a total of 32 rods, she is packed and ready for adventure!

The Line is Well Balanced

Ease of use and technical achievement aboard the Canyon 456 start with Grady’s exclusive Sea Command CenterTM–aesthetically striking, comfortable, and offering an amazing assembly of technology. The center’s ultra-comfortable forward-facing seating features four premium individual electronically adjustable seats, each replete with rich upholstery and stainless supports for the armrests. A fold down footrest for each adds even more comfort. The starboard center seat accommodates the captain, who has an easy reach to the ergonomically arranged array of systems, electronics, and controls at the helm. CZone digital switching technology enables one-touch control of on-board systems including power, electrical, lighting, heat and air conditioning–even the seacocks. A software application allows remote command of these functions from your phone! Grady’s sea chest raw water reservoir allows remote electronic control for livewells, generator, air conditioning, washdowns, and more. The helm also holds the Fusion Signature Series stereo system controls for the bow and T-top speakers. A separate Fusion Signature unit is located in the console cabin.

The superb Grady White hull SeaV2 ride of the Canyon 456 is indeed unparalleled, exhibiting performance and seaworthy reliability for which Grady-White’s signature hull design is known. The 456 is equipped with a Seakeeper gyro stabilizer to give an added element of control in the most extreme sea conditions. The Yamaha Helm Master system with Set PointTM is also standard, further providing enhanced performance (55 mph). The revolutionary Zipwake dynamic autoleveling trim control system also assures maximum capability. This Canyon packs a variable speed bow thruster standard as well.

The entire helm area is covered by a stylish, enclosed AV2 T-topTM with an integrated wraparound windshield for maximum visibility and protection. Electronic side windows and a large overhead hatch allow plenty of fresh air, when the heating or air conditioning system is not needed. This top includes a built-in SureShade electronically retractable cockpit shade, and LED spreader lights forward and aft. Top-of-the-line deluxe Gemlux carbon fiber outriggers are available. The underneath of the top features digital lighting and a huge netted storage area–a Grady specialty. Ten rod holders here are fishingready, and four deluxe stereo speakers provide the soundtrack to any adventure. For extra convenience, this Canyon comes equipped with a remote-controlled anchor light on the T-top, making the transition from day to night as simple as a press of a button. Safety handrails are seamlessly built-in, just where you need them.

A luxury layout for fishermen or families

The extra beam on this Canyon allows the integration of the Sea Command Center’s amazing aft-facing fishing station, with dedicated air conditioning/heating vents and seating for three in high, dry, and exceedingly comfortable seats. The middle seat sports a flip-up bolster that serves as a lean bar. Tackle storage is truly spacious, with room for six tackle boxes plus two additional gear drawers that slide from under the bolstered seating. Portside there is a sink with an adjustable pull-out faucet hose with spray nozzle. The starboard side has an outdoor galley featuring a refrigerator and grill for those on-board celebrations of fresh-caught seafood, or just for snacks and hors d’oeuvres.

Aft port and starboard cockpit side doors are positioned  for landing fish or boarding. Another useful feature is the hot and cold freshwater shower mounted near the starboard side door, ready for a quick rinse after a swim or dive, or to wash off your rods after a catch. There is handy storage for six rods under the aft gunwales and, just forward, additional lockable storage for four more. Twin livewells are located in the transom area port and starboard, adjacent to the expansive aft refrigerated/freezer fish box. This aft box comes with two partitions so it can be sectioned in three sizes, to adjust for your catch of the day. On the interior transom wall is a thoughtfully designed area to mount an up to 24″ electronic display screen so the aft facing crew can see navigation direction, fish sounder, and the exact position of the last strike—all the information a fish fighter needs. The aft transom itself includes a brand new high volume overboard draining scupper system, plus a Glendenning 35-foot, 50 amp motorized retractable shore power cord. The Canyon 456 is powered by quad Yamaha outboard engines, and boasts the Reverso pre-programmed engine flushing system to keep them running perfectly. This Grady shines at night with water level LED lights.

A well furnished cabin

Access to the expansive console cabin is via a sliding door with screen, located just forward of the portside bridge seat. To port of the integrated cabin steps is a cedar-lined closet. Large side windows provide ample ambient light to fill the interior space. A dazzling combination of exotic wood, superb cabinetry, luxurious fabrics, and Corian countertops greet the eye. Below the portside countertop is a full-size microwave drawer, and a six-bottle wine cooler for entertaining. A stainless steel sink and a cooktop are located amidships on the starboard counter, with a refrigerator drawer below. Lighted glass shelves are above the counters on each side. Forward center, there’s an electronically controlled solid sapele wood dining table inlaid with teak and brushed aluminum accents, seating up to four.

Simply lower the table for a forward berth that sleeps two comfortably. Overhead, the screened hatch offers plenty of fresh air and ocean breezes on demand. A 32″ flat screen television is centered on the forward bulkhead. Retractable vertical storage for four rods, neatly set under the portside countertop, hides away when not in use. Alongside the berth, port and starboard, are the innovative, patent-pending Integrated Rod Storage Slides™ securely stowing four more rods. The generous console head is starboard, and includes a lighted, mirrored glass cabinet over the stainless steel sink, and a shower with a classic teak grid floor. A clever, elegant hinged fiberglass door partitions off the shower area, keeping the rest of the compartment dry, and creates an additional locker for another four rods. This luxurious cabin hosts lockable storage for a total of 12 rods.

Storage for a Total of 32 rods

On deck, forward of the cabin, the Canyon 456 proves it has a double life as an elegant loungeand-leisure platform. Atop the forward cabin, very comfortable lounge cushions create an incomparable space for sun worshippers. The bow seating area continues the theme of exceptional detail, comfort, and elegant style. There are two large plumbed, insulated boxes portside (43 and 123 quarts), and a huge 210-quart box starboard. Atop the boxes, deeply cushioned seating complemented by three-way positioned stowable backrests surrounds two motorized semi-circular fiberglass tables. When the tables are in the down position, they can be covered with cushions for yet another lounging platform. One notable advantage of the semicircular tables is that they allow access all the way to the bow and windless, and loungers need not move out of the way! Anchor rode storage include up to 400 feet of rode and 30 feet of chain. Drop the plow anchor anywhere the crew wants to stop. If fishermen are sight casting off the bow, remove the cushions, and–voila!–there’s an ample, strong casting platform. The new flagship Canyon 456 epitomizes Grady-White’s storied legacy of 59 years of building comfortable, superbly engineered, superior quality boats built for the toughest conditions, shaped for the best ride, and fine-tuned for the highest fishing functionality. Here’s a superb fishing yacht, true to its purebred sportfishing heart and soul, that takes luxury and versatility to a new dimension.
