Grady-White’s dual console boats are especially popular with coastal homeowners because they are truly the most versatile boats for sale anywhere. The wide beam, wide open 28-foot Freedom 285 is a great performance cruiser as well as a feature-rich saltwater fishing boat. A pleasure to drive, solid in all sea conditions.
