GREENVILLE, NC: In conjunction with the company's model year 2016 dealer conference, Grady-White Boats welcomed hometown residents and surrounding communities to a free show at the Greenville Convention Center, October 22, 2015, where the full line of Grady's handcrafted, award-winning inshore and offshore sportfishing boats were on display. This is the only boat show anywhere that features all 26 of the model year 2016 Grady-Whites, ranging from 18 to 37 feet.
"We hosted our annual international dealer conference—an event that features product education and sales training as well as dealer recognitions of excellence—plus this major boat show display," explained Joey Weller, Grady-White vice president of sales. "This was a special occasion to view the work of our dedicated team of North Carolina craftsmen and women, and we invited everyone to see the exceptional attention to detail that is evident in every boat we build."
Boat models on view included eight center consoles: the Fisherman 180, Fisherman 209, Fisherman 230, Fisherman 257, Canyon 271, Canyon 306, Canyon 336, and Canyon 376; the Coastal Explorer series: the 191 CE and 251 CE; nine dual consoles: the Freedom 192, Freedom 205, Freedom 225, Freedom 255, Freedom 275, Freedom 285, Freedom 307, Freedom 335 and the Freedom 375; two express cabins: the Express 330 and Express 370; and five walkaround cabin models: the Adventure 208, Seafarer 228, Gulfstream 232, Journey 258, and the Marlin 300.
As a part of sales training at the conference, dealers and associates toured the factory in Greenville, NC, and met the passionate team that builds Grady-White's outboard powered family-and-sportfishing boats known for their SeaV²® hull design performance. The company now offers the industry's only iPad application, Captain Grady, which provides operation information for every onboard system.
