Fisherman 257
25' CENTER CONSOLE
We listened to avid saltwater sport fishing customers and coastal recreation-loving families alike and, as a result, Grady-White’s 25-foot Fisherman 257 center console sets a new standard for boat satisfaction. Topping the long list of must-have features are plenty of offshore sport fishing amenities, a comfortable head area, plus Grady-White’s signature SeaV ride.
