The 36' 7" (11.15 m) LOA Canyon 366 is Grady-White Boats's entry in the fast-growing class of large center-consoles, 35-plus footers intended to compete with convertibles in the sportfishing arena. Thanks to a center-console's inherently lighter weight, and with power options up to triple 350-hp Yamaha outboards, the big Canyon 366 can run faster than 55 mph (88.5 kph), according to builder-supplied test data – similar-sized convertibles would have to struggle mightily to match that. Faster out and back means more time over the fish, a critical advantage especially for tournament fishermen, and helpful even for weekend warriors with limited time on the water. But for most folks life is about more than fishing (or so we're told), and since any boat this size is a major investment, it's one that the whole family has to be on board for. By adding a few options, the Canyon 366 can also double as a family dayboat.
