Fisherman 236
23' CENTER CONSOLE
Grady-White’s Fisherman 236 is foremost a great fishing boat, bred of Grady’s saltwater DNA yet more feature-rich and family-friendly than any competitive 23-foot center console. The 236 has unmatched sportfishing essentials—oversize cockpit, rod and tackle storage, plus huge capacity fish boxes and a standard livewell. The family will love two built-in swim platforms, the oversized enclosed head, and comfortable bow seating with optional forward facing fold away backrests.
