Fishing Features in Grady-White Boats
Let’s take a look at the various Grady-White boat features that favor fishermen.
*These features change depending on the model so make sure to double-check with the dealer before you purchase a boat.*
- The helm is spacious and allows for more mobility. Some models include a seat that folds up to become an extra-wide leaning post seat. Other models, like the Fisherman 236 and 251 CE, come with an option of having a forward live well under the seat.
- For better visibility and protection, there is a wrap-around windshield and the helm is raised so you can see over the deck.
- There is plenty of storage for rods with rod holders on the back of the helm seat with is extra storage underneath the gunnel on each side of the boat as well. If you need more rod holders, these can be added before the boat is delivered.
- Models like the Fisherman line have a spot for your fillet knife and your pliers on the back of the helm seat and below it, there is a tackle station with plenty of space.
- There is a transom seat that bends down to allow for better mobility when fishing. You can pull it up at any time once you are ready to relax.
- The transom door makes it easier to bring in any big fish. There is also a transom fish box and a live well. The live well is equipped with Grady’s unique plenum that distributes water up and down the entire live well and keeps the bait alive all day long. There is a freshwater shower on the transom as well for bait prep.
- A lot of models come with safety features like toe rails and gunnel bolsters.
- On the deck area, the seats can be lifted for extra storage. Moreover, these drain overboard and not to the bilge.
- Grady-White boats are known to be unsinkable. We cover all the specifics in our blog Are Grady-White Boats Unsinkable?

Grady-White Boats Partnership with Yamaha
Grady-White powers their boats with Yamaha outboard technology since they offer superior performance and consistent quality. Yamaha’s command length gauge and joystick steering, which includes set points and drift points setting, makes your fishing experience incredibly easy, even on rough waters. Not to mention, it also has a very smooth electronic throttle and shift.
Last year, Yamaha announced the New Helm Master EX. It is the next level of integrated boat control and it is fully compatible with Grady-White Boats. This adds full maneuverability, less maintenance, more joystick control, and many other benefits that make the boating and fishing experience better.
