Fisherman 216

21' CENTER CONSOLE

 

Grady-White’s Fisherman 216, a 21-foot center console boat, is a stand-out in its class of inshore and offshore fishing boats. The spacious cockpit offers an abundance of room for moving about with fishing rods, but its recreational boat qualities provide all-day comfort for enjoying the day with family and friends. True to Grady’s superior quality and functionality, the 216 has plenty of comfortable seating as well as swim and dockside boarding platforms on both the port and starboard sides. The 216 includes the trademarked SeaV²® hull which gives all Gradys the best riding hulls on the market today. Setting the standard for smaller premium center consoles, this boat delivers unmatched owner satisfaction!
