Fisherman 236

23' CENTER CONSOLE

 

The most feature rich 23-foot center console, Grady-White’s Fisherman 236 is a superior fishing boat and more family-friendly than any competitive models. Standard features that make this boat remarkable include a 15-gallon livewell, an oversized enclosed head and a transom door that makes it easy to board fish or get in and out of the water from the swim platform. Grady’s patented seating designs add comfort for up to 10 passengers. From the bow seating with forward facing foldaway backrests to the foldaway aft bench seat there’s room for everyone.
