Seller note:

A clean slate for your choice of power and electronics, make this Grady a custom boat without the custom price. Since 1959, Grady White has been one of, if not the most successful boat builders in the world. If you are looking for quality, that will last long after you take the helm for the first time, this is it. With the heart of a fishing boat, this 228 Seafarer give good accommodations for overnight jaunts. This Grady will be every bit as much at home full of your fishing buddies or dressed up for a night at the yacht club. The 228 is such a popular model, it is still produced today. Grady builds very stable boats with lots of room to move around. Ergo, while this hull handles head seas perfectly well, it isn't going to fly through them like an offshore racer that has a sharper entry and a narrower beam. With that said, doing 25 mph straight into a 4-foot sea doesn't qualify it as a slouch, either. That same stability and interior volume make trolling in a beam sea and drifting bottom structure a true pleasure aboard the 228. You'll find coamings that meet you just above the knees and bars under which you can lock your toes. Overall, this cockpit provides a great sense of security when fighting and landing a big fish. Of course, there's a tackle station, baitwell, removable tackle storage and big fish boxes. Whether you see yourself battling your dream fish in the Gulf Stream, or sipping Margaritas anchored in a quiet cove in the North Channel, this boat can do it all. Because of the quality of construction, you will have more time on the water and less in maintenance mode. The term Grady-Built means there's no other sport fishing boat built like a Grady-White. Period. Grady-White boats are products of a unique combination of North Carolina's saltwater heritage, a culture of long-term private ownership, a dedication to safety, and a true knowledge of sport fishing gained over years of experience. A Grady is built to last for years of enjoyment and holds an excellent resale value. Grady White is first and foremost a fishing boat. The 49 square foot cockpit will give plenty of room for a few friends to enjoy a day on the water. At 29 inches deep, safety and comfort when fighting the big ones will be assured. You will be able use your new Grady for more than just fishing. She sleeps two in a large Vee berth forward. Large windows port and starboard and a good size overhead hatch provides light and good ventilation. A swim platform with folding dive ladder make aquatic adventures part of the fun.
