|The Grady-White Express 360 gives anglers plenty of outboard power.|
The largest Grady-White in the company's 46-year history hit the water rigged with three 250-hp Yamaha four-stroke outboards. The Express 360 is easy to handle, thanks to a stainless wheel and power-assisted tilt steering. Teleflex throttles are electronically programmable with an engine-synch mode, making the triple engines as easy to run as twins. The helm has Grady-White's electromechanically controlled electronics cabinets, a chart-storage area and a fully adjustable captain's helm seat. The helm area has surround seating with a slide-away side table, plenty of rod storage and is covered by a standard molded hard-top.
This Grady-White is equipped to fish and implies success with a cavernous 269-quart refrigerator-freezer fishbox in the aft deck. Other cold storage is in an aft-facing 55-quart refrigerator-freezer box. Both boxes drain overboard and are cooled by coils in the foam-filled walls. The cockpit also offers a raw-water washdown, under-gunwale storage racks and a transom shower and door. The rigging station includes a fresh water sink, insulated bait box, lockable tackle drawers and a 48-gallon live well.
