From its richly enhanced helm area with four electronically adjustable seats to its Seakeeper gyro and Yamaha Helm Master system, Grady’s new center console Canyon 456 truly makes a luxury-fishing statement.
At the helm, CZone digital switching technology enables one-touch control of onboard systems, including power, electrical, lighting, heat and air conditioning — even the seacocks. Grady’s sea-chest raw-water reservoir allows remote electronic control for livewells, generator, washdowns and more.
Behind the helm, the 456 features an aft-facing fishing station with dedicated AC and heating vents. Twin livewells are located in the transom area adjacent to the refrigerator/freezer fish box. On the interior transom wall is a mounting site for up to a 24-inch electronics display so crew can watch the sonar. The 456 provides onboard storage for up to 32 rods.
