Grady-White is known for superbly engineered boats, built by craftsmen that aim to provide, through exceptional attention to detail, the ultimate boating experience for customers in every facet of the ownership experience. Happily, for all of us at Grady-White, and all of our associates, the result of this focus also results in industry recognition, awards, and honors for the things we do. We are proud to announce the latest honor, for one of the new boats in our lineup: The 23-foot Freedom 235 dual console has been named as one of five finalists for Boating magazine’s 2017 Boat of the Year.
Well-known marine industry trade publication Boating Industry announced its Top Products of 2017, selecting 50 of the best new or updated products and services for the model year, ranging from accessories to boats to engines and more.

For over 40 years, Grady-White Boats has understood and believed in the core principle of working to delight customers.

A 21-foot Grady-White Freedom 205 named Moja, a gorgeous, highly trained and specialized dog with an astonishing nose named Tucker, and a dedicated outfit called Conservation Canines seem so unlikely to have anything do with the preservation of the magnificent beasts known as orca, or killer whales. But looks (and scents) can be quite deceiving, as this group effort is doing a tremendous job in helping to understand the dynamics of disturbance, seawater toxins, and Chinook salmon populations, and the effects on the endangered population of orcas known as Puget Sound’s Southern Resident killer whales.
Searching for ways to innovate and improve every model is a key focus at Grady-White every year. Safety has always been a core value, and protection of captain and crew from the elements is a hallmark of the design and engineering at this highly respected, detail-oriented company.
