Grady-White Boats has launched Captain Grady — a digital iPad app that includes operation guides with videos and step-by-step instructions.

The app, also coming soon to iPhones, is designed to give visually detailed and simple instructions or refreshers to a specific model of boat where and when boaters need it.

The app is an included benefit for every new boat and is available for all Grady-White boats in the model years 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Instructions include start-up, shutdown, troubleshooting, emergency procedures, alarms, manuals and boating systems, including electrical, generator, load management and others, depending on the model.

The company said critical phases of system functions are thoroughly covered to ensure safe and sure operation.

Captain Grady has been in development over four years and is proprietary to Grady-White. The application is available for demonstration at Grady-White dealerships.
