Grady-White debuted its new Freedom 235 dual console.

The 23-foot boat has a SeaV2 hull, storage, port and starboard swim platforms, transom door, and 160-quart insulated box. It comes with an oversized enclosed head compartment with extended stowage in the bow for rods and skis.

“We have pushed the boundary of just how many big-boat features could be incorporated into this boat. Fishing, cruising, you name it, this boat is as fully equipped as boats twice as big,” Grady-White design engineer Christian Carraway said in a statement.

Options include a wet bar with a Yeti removable cooler.

“We have incorporated many Grady firsts, which add even more substance to the Grady core values of quality, performance, safety and reliability,” Carraway said. “Refreshing new styling on the Freedom 235 is innovative, yet stays true to our design integrity. The result is a sleek, forward-thinking dual console.”
