NEW BOATS & GEAR

Sport Fishing - - CONTENTS - BY CHRIS WOOD­WARD

GRADY-WHITE SAYS it has rein­vented the cen­ter con­sole Canyon 306, in­tro­duc­ing a new con­sole with a full wind­shield, bow seat­ing changes and ma­jor helm-area en­hance­ments.

The bow now fea­tures op­tional for­ward-facing, fold­away bol­stered back­rests. Swing the back­rests out of the way and de­ploy the op­tional in­sert for a roomy cast­ing plat­form.

At the con­sole, the boat’s new stan­dard hard­top sports a full-height wind­shield for en­hanced pro­tec­tion against the el­e­ments. Grady stream­lined the helm by flush-mount­ing the elec­tron­ics. Throt­tles now re­side front and cen­ter, and gauges and switches mount across the top of the con­sole.

Aside from the up­dates, the 306 comes with a 47-gal­lon lighted livewell fea­tur­ing full-col­umn aer­a­tion and a molded-in win­dow, aft of the com­pan­ion helm seat. The area also has a sink, rig­ging sta­tion, tackle draw­ers, rod hold­ers and an in­su­lated bait locker.

The 306 of­fers 290 gal­lons of fuel ca­pac­ity and can han­dle up to 700 hp on the tran­som. In fac­tory tests with twin Yamaha F350s, the boat hit 59.1 mph at 6,000 rpm, achiev­ing 0.86 mpg.
