Grady-White Freedom 335

Grady-White’s new flagship is the largest outboard-powered dual console in the world and boasts a number of new surprises. The consoles provide access to seperate cabins, with the port-side functioning as a well-appointed changing area, and a head and shower can be found starboard. There’s an optional 32-gallon, 1,100 gph livewell, plentiful rod storage and a massive 166-quart fish box that can be optionally equipped with a freezer/cooler feature. Cavernous storage areas can be found all around the 335, and pressurized washdowns make cleanup of the self-bailing deck and fish boxes a breeze. This a serious ­fishing machine that is equally adept at entertaining. www.gradywhite.com Specifications

Well-conceived features include large casting platforms forward and aft, and full-length covering boards and ­bolster pads that are easy on the knees when you’re fighting fish. The John Cosker-designed twin stepped ­bottom, with a 15½ degree deadrise, gives the 25 Bay the ability to run shallow when you have to cross a foot of water, yet take rough offshore conditions in stride. The curved topsides of the hull, new for Contender, also reduce ­hull-slap when stealth is essential. The high-density foam transom is designed to hold up to 350 horsepower and a jack plate, and incorporates recessed trim-tab pockets. www.contenderoffshore.com Specifications
