Cruisers utilizes cored construction in fiberglass deck and hull components, resulting in lighter structures, increased strength-to-weight ratios, better vibration absorption, and thermal and acoustic insulation. A third joystick in the cockpit makes for easy docking. More...

Grady-White Fisherman 216:
The SeaV2 Hull has Proven itself Over the Years

Grady-White Fisherman 216
Grady-White Fisherman 216

The Fisherman 216 rides on Grady-White’s signature SeaV² hull, a continuously variable vee hull that delivers a soft and stable ride. The design provides a very sharp forward entry, that tapers to a moderate 19-degree vee at the transom. The combination provides a smooth ride as well as quick planing and beam stability. The proof is in the Highest Rankings in Customer Satisfaction for hull performance in each of the 8 Marine Studies conducted from 2001-2009 by J.D. Power Associates. In our opinion, hull performance is one of the most important aspects of this and all Grady boats. Her integrated swim platform extends on either side of the outboard to allow easy access for swimming, tow sports, boating large fish, or, just climbing aboard from the dock. More...
