Grady-White has long been known for producing seakindly, versatile boats with an emphasis on high-quality craftsmanship. As a direct result of this approach to boatbuilding, Grady-Whites enjoy an almost cultishly loyal following, with owners the world over swearing by their vessels’ seakeeping ability. Those faithful patrons should find no reason for jumping ship, no pun intended, with the arrival of Grady’s new 335.
The 335 features an open layout that is well suited to entertaining. The most striking thing about this design is the open bow, which obviously sacrifices cabin space, but also makes the main deck downright expansive for a 33-footer. The bow area leads aft between a double console towards the helm and cockpit, both of which offer a slew of amenities that aid in both entertaining and fishing. For entertainment purposes, guests will certainly appreciate the 335’s standard six-speaker stereo system with MP3 hookup as well as the standard wet bar with refrigerator, sink, and optional grill. That grill could come in extra handy if you’re trying to catch your dinner—a task for which this boat is well equipped. The 335 comes with a built-in cooler that can be optioned into a livewell, and a 166-quart insulated fishbox aft. The cockpit also has fold-up transom seating should you need more deck space, as fishing so often demands. Lastly, the boat is powered by twin outboards that max out at 700 hp total, more than enough pop to get you anywhere you want to go, with gusto.
