Whether you’re about to purchase your first boat, or you’re a seasoned boat owner about to buy your next “favorite” boat, you might be contemplating which model category is right for you and your family. Here’s a simple comparison of two options that might help in your decision making.
Center console boats were traditionally viewed as boats built just for offshore fishing. Grady-White has engineered their center console models to be not only rugged and fishable, but also luxuriously comfortable. Dual console boats, originally introduced by Grady-White in 1979, have taken off in popularity in recent years because of their family friendly layout.
These are a few notable differences between the two boat models:
Every Grady-White is engineered for both comfort and fishability. Dual Consoles are often the model of choice for people who primarily enjoy cruising, water sports and entertaining, but also want a boat that allows them the opportunity to fish inshore and offshore. Grady-White Center Consoles are geared toward the avid fisherman who also wants to spend time with family cruising or enjoying water sports. Mid-size Dual Console models incorporate optional sinks, and galleys with refrigerators and grills in the cockpit for entertaining. These items are not typically offered on mid-size center consoles to allow more open cockpit space for fighting fish.
A good way to compare dual and center console models is to visit Grady-White’s new website and use the compare models feature and read through the standard features and available options for each model.
No matter what model suits you and your family best you can rest assured that your Grady-White boat will combine rugged durability with the comfort and conveniences you’d expect from the world’s highest quality boat manufacturer.
