GRADY-WHITE FREEDOM 325
grady-white’s freedom 325 dual console has an anchor locker with a windlass and a 180-quart insulated fish box forward, a 254-quart insulated transom fish box, 32-gallon livewell, an electrically adjustable helm seat, and a hardtop that comes standard with a SureShade. Options include a generator, wet bar and refrigerator. The 325 has the builder’s SeaV2 hull with an ever-changing deadrise from bow to stern, making the boat seakindly. Even with a 33-foot1-inch length overall, the boat’s 2-foot draft makes her skinny-water friendly. The hull and deck are hand-laid fiberglass. Power is twin 300 or 350 hp Yamaha four-stroke outboards. Optimum cruising speed with the 300s is about 25.5 knots, making 42 knots on the pins, according to the builder. With the 350s, best cruise speed is around 27 knots with a 47.5-knot top-end.
