The idea of Grady Care, a customer experience concept pioneered in 2005, resulted in a fantastic new innovation in 2013: Captain Grady, the model-specific, industry-exclusive iPad app, with complete video and written instructions for all boat systems and components operation. By 2014, Captain Grady was available as a no-additional cost asset and feature on every new Grady-White model. (By early 2016, Captain Grady was available on iPhones, too.) In short, this one-of–a-kind Grady Care application makes any new Grady-White the easiest boat to operate in the world. If anyone wondered what it means to have exceptional attention to detail and close relationships with customers and how they use their boats, the Captain Grady app is certainly proof of Grady-White’s commitment.
Mid-winter 2013-14 also marked the introduction of a whole new category of Grady-White, with the development of the breakthrough 25-foot 251 Coastal Explorer. Shown extensively at winter boat shows and raved about by boating industry sportsmen and writers, the shallow draft multi-use boat was an instant success. Touting a C. Raymond Hunt SeaV2® hull, this coastal boat is perfectly designed for shallow water family fishing, and can easily venture offshore. With family-friendly amenities, including a roomy head compartment and comfy seating, and foldaway, easy-to-store bow seat backs, this boat is a coastal family’s dreamboat.
