The Canyon 376 is built with an integrated motor bracket that doubles as a swim platform. It has a four-step boarding ladder to starboard and just ahead is a transom door. In the center of the stern is a 291-quart (275 L) insulated fishbox with two lights and an overboard drain. To port is a storage compartment with a cutting board on top of the hatch.
Stepping aboard the Canyon 376, we saw six drains for the self-bailing cockpit. Aft, a bench seat folds out of the transom and we liked that the coaming bolster for this seat is angled to create a more comfortable sitting position. The entire cockpit is ringed in bolster padding that makes it more comfortable to lean against when fishing. Outboard on each side, there are gunwale cutouts with rod holders, storage pockets and finished toerails. In the aft port corner, a small hatch opens to reveal the battery switches. In the center of the sole is a hatch that accesses pumps and other equipment.
Grady-White calls the Canyon 376’s leaning post the “Deluxe Lean Bar,” and we fully agree with use of the word “Deluxe.” To port is a 41-gallon (155 L) livewell with a hatch that closes with two rubber latches and has a clear acrylic center section. In the middle, a cleaver tackle box holder flips down and has a tray where riggers can secure a tackle box. To starboard, a cooler is standard, and it can be replaced with an optional second 41-gallon (155 L) livewell. Below are storage drawers and dedicated slots for tackle boxes.
The Helm Seats.
In a boat this size, there’s space abaft the console for three-across seating. The captain drives from the center with a companion on each side. Each seat has folding armrests and a bolster that also folds up, so passengers can choose between standing and sitting. There are two fold-down footrests below on the base of the seats as well as an angled step forward on the console that passengers can brace against. This console step is also hinged and opens a storage compartment.
The Helm Station.
At the Canyon 376’s helm, the steering wheel is centrally positioned with the engine controls to starboard and the trim tab buttons just outboard of them. Engine instruments and the compass are in a glare-killing black panel forward of an electronics panel that raises when needed and tucks back into the dash with the push of a button. The windshield is tempered glass, and it has an electrically powered center section that opens to let in cooling air. Overhead, the T-top has an electronics or radio box, a storage net, red, white and blue LED lights, outrigger plates, stereo speakers and ivory wing curtains.
Moving forward, a hatch in the starboard side of the console provides access to the Canyon 376’s cabin. Two steps lead down to a synthetic teak sole that looks good and is easy to maintain. A small galley to port has a stainless-steel sink with a pull-up wand and Isotherm refrigerator. Beneath a ventilated hatch is a VacuFlush head, and the boat has a 10-gallon (39 L) holding tank. A small lounge in the bow has a clever power backrest that raises with the push of a button to reveal a berth that sleeps two. There’s vertical rod storage as well as flexible fabric pockets for stashing gear.
The front of the Canyon 376’s console is angled at a comfortable riding position for passengers seated on the lounge that can accommodate up to three people. There are cushions on top of each of the two draining 263-quart (249 L) forward fishboxes that owners can opt for available casting deck filler inserts with cushions. Aft of the forward fishboxes/seats, gunwale cutouts have rod storage and expandable pockets. In the foredeck, the boat comes standard with a windlass beneath a hatch and at seat base level, there’s access to the rode locker.
Power and Performance
We haven’t tested the Canyon 376 yet, but Grady-White has three different combinations of Yamaha outboards. With triple Yamaha 350-hp 4-stroke outboards, the boat weighed 18,190 lbs. (8,251 kg) and turned 16 ¼” x 17” SWS XL SDS stainless-steel propellers, according to the builder. In the builder’s tests, we’re told that she hit a top speed of 55.3 mph at 6000 rpm, the company tells us. Best cruise came at 3600 rpm where the boat ran 30.4 mph and burned 29.6 gph, according to Grady-White. She carries 390 gallons of fuel.
Grady-White uses what it calls the SeaV2 hull on all its boats. It’s a continuously variable V-shaped design that utilizes variable deadrise measurements throughout the bottom. It sharpens from the transom (20-degrees) to about 30-degrees amidships and a steeper entry at the bow. The hull was designed by C. Raymond Hung & Associates, which has more experience with deep-V hulls than any other naval architect.
Grady-White builds the Canyon 376 with all hand-applied laminates. The boat starts with gelcoat backed up by vinylester resin. Each layer of fiberglass is laid by hand. There’s no wood in the boat, including in the transom and stringers. Stringers are molded from fiberglass and proprietary composites, filled with flotation foam and encapsulated in resin and fiberglass. The composite transom on each new boat is reinforced with a solid aluminum transom-angle brace to distribute torque loads.
$458,910 with triple 300-hp Yamaha 4-stroke outboards.
We like the fact that Grady-White equips the Canyon 376 with so many standard features including the T-top, trim tabs with indicators, a windlass, fishboxes and the head below decks. These are items that most buyers would want and not having to add each individual accessory makes the buying process easier.The ability to trim the outboards make the boat much more versatile. They give the Grady-White Canyon 376 an advantage in fuel economy over similarly sized inboards in that they make the boat significantly faster. She planes at relatively low speeds, which saves on fuel.Most important of all, she has been designed and built by Grady-White’s veteran team of engineers who have decades of experience with these types of boats, and all of that expertise has gone into the Canyon 376.
