Many of the features of this boat have trickled down from its larger siblings. For example, Grady-White provides a stand-up head inside the console, a remarkably spacious cockpit and a T-top that the company integrated into the console rather than merely bolting it on.

Though rated for a maximum of 300 horses on the transom, the new Fisherman 230 performs admirably with 250 hp as well. And just forward of the engine, Grady has incorporated a traditional motorwell in lieu of a splashboard, affording the space for an optional 35-gallon livewell with full-column distribution. Or you can opt for Grady’s signature aft-bench foldaway seating instead.

Most savvy anglers will opt for the leaning post with a comfortable backrest, heavily cushioned seat, footrests, knife and pliers holders as well as rod and tackle storage.

Find more storage forward in the form of twin 25-gallon insulated fish box/seats. Should you choose, Grady makes an insert for between these forward seats to convert the area into a raised casting deck. And you’ll surely appreciate the single-level deck when working a fish over the length of the boat.

Grady-White’s SeaV2 running surface gives these boats a great, dry ride in a head sea as well as terrific stability in a beam sea. With the company’s penchant for top-quality accessories and fittings along with its continual innovation in the fishing-features arena, the Grady-White 230 Fisherman presents a fine pedigree.
