News: Grady-White Builds with All Composite Structural Components
Stringer systems and transoms for every new Grady are built using high technology, impervious-to-water composite material. There is NO wood in the transom or structural stringer foundation of any newly built Grady-White. In fact, Grady-White utilizes a high density, closed-cell polyurethane foam reinforced with woven roving and continuous strand fiberglass as the basis of our structural stringer systems and transoms. Furthermore the sturdy composite transom on most new Grady-White models is reinforced with a solid aluminum transom angle brace to distribute torque and provide unfailing strength. And even though it's not required for boats over 26 feet, each and every Grady-White of every size has enough sprayed-in foam flotation to ensure that the boat is unsinkable. No boat brand has better certified flotation characteristics.
