The 360 is big, wide and hefty - definitely not a boat you'll want to trailer yourself.
On the way out to Big Rock - almost 50 miles south of Morehead City, North Carolina - the seas were still settling after a weekend of hurricane-force winds. But no matter on which point of attack we headed, I was able to find a sweet spot where the Grady cruised along smoothly. The 360 topped out at just over 44 mph burning 20 gph per engine - 60 gph total at 6,000 rpm. I know of smaller boats with twin engines that burn almost that. Amazingly, the 360's optimum cruising speed is a wholly respectable 31 mph at 4,500 rpm. At that speed, we used only 11 gph per engine or 33 gph total for an economy rating of 0.93 mpg.
Crank the wheel hard over at speed and the 360 leans into the turn and carves a tight circle while holding everyone in his seat. I found backing down easy, especially with the standard bow thruster to help alter course. While trolling, I discovered that the 360 has a short roll moment with moderate transitions.
Teleflex i6000 TEC electronic controls handle three throttles with two shifters. You can configure the levers to operate in numerous ways, which sounds good, but is needlessly complex. A benefit to this system is its NMEA 2000 compatibility, which allows it to work with a number of engine companies' products. The downside to this system? The large black boxes you need to hide away somewhere.
