SN 1290 Grady-White 257 Advance

*NOW REDUCED* Exceptional Grady-White 257 Advance repowered in 2015 with a Yamaha 300HP V6 showing just 230 hours! Rarely available on the pre-owned market, Grady-Whites are proven fishing vessels and well-suited to our tough offshore conditions here in WA.

The 257 is a classic centre console with plenty of fishing space, heaps of storage, live wells, kill tanks, lockable centre console cab with room for a toilet, transom door and dive ladder. The patented Grady-White SeaV2 deadrise progression is a fine tuned hull design stemming from decades of technical improvements and testing.

This particular example has had thousands spent on upgrades in her life, including a full commercial spec navigation and sounder package. The vendors are reluctantly selling to upgrade to a larger vessel, they have certainly fallen in love with this boat as all Grady owners do!

This centre console is perfect as a day boat, dive platform, spearfishing rig, tender, offshore fishing, cruising the river and towing to regional locations. This vessel is under 3500kg on the trailer! Tow with a Land Cruiser or similar. The Grady-White is right up there with the best of them, a serious competitor to Boston Whaler, Scout, Contender and Regulator. Some even dare to admit they are more comfortable than Boston Whalers at sea!

o 2 x 120L fish boxes
