Unique in the Industry
The term Grady-Built means there's no other sportfishing boat built like a Grady-White. Period. Grady-White boats are products of a unique combination of North Carolina's saltwater heritage, a culture of long-term private ownership, a dedication to safety, and a keen knowledge of sportfishing gained over years of experience. Your Grady is built to last for years of enjoyment and commands an excellent resale value.

Why Grady-Built?
"Good enough" just isn't good enough for a Grady. We build security into our boats we hope our owners never have to put to the test. The importance of self-bailing cockpits is impressed on Grady-White craftsmen by North Carolina capes named "Lookout" and "Fear." SeaV2 hull designs are inspired by solid walls of white water across inlets like Hatteras and Oregon. And the attention to order and detail comes from fishing our boats from Canada to Australia. Grady-Built security gives our boat owners the peace of mind that is a huge factor in the pure enjoyment of time spent on big water.

Private Ownership: Continuity and Focus
Eddie Smith, Jr., has owned Grady-White Boats since 1968. Our president, Kris Carroll, joined the company in 1975. Our company's only focus is offshore sportfishing boats. We are fiercely dedicated to safety, performance and dependability with a fervor that simply can't be matched by a subsidiary of a conglomerate. We employ some of the best boat builders in the world, and the long-term relationships with our employees and dealerships support continuous product improvement.

Dedication to Fisheries Resources and Coastal Environment
Eddie Smith has led Grady-White to be recognized as the boating industry's leader in recreational fishing and coastal environment issues. Eddie himself has been recognized for lifetime achievement by the American Sportfishing Association, and has also been honored by the International Game Fish Association and many others for his commitment. Many of the managers and other employees at Grady-White are similarly dedicated to the long-term health of fisheries and coastal areas. A Grady-White boat is truly a symbol of dedication to the best kind of future for our children, our fisheries and our waterways.
