The Tournament 225 from Grady-White is a completely re-engineered design of a classic model in the company’s line. A dual-console interior bridges the gap between serious fishing and family-oriented creature comforts. The redesign includes a roomy enclosed head, complete with built-in storage for fishing tackle and other odds and ends. The spacious bow area offers plenty of room for both fishing and day lounging, with the addition of the optional sun platform. Fishing amenities include a roomy forward anchor locker, lockable tackle drawers forward of the helm, and a fully protected lockable electronics box. The cockpit boasts 50 square feet of fishing space, and the under-gunwale rod racks hold six outfits. Four angled rod holders come standard in the covering boards, and the transom holds a 175-quart insulated fishbox, with room for a 22-gallon optional live well.
