More than 300 Grady-White boat owners and enthusiasts attended Grady Fest IV at the Fish Tale Marina in Fort Myers Beach, Fla.

Marina docks were lined with Grady-White boats ranging from 19 to 37 feet. The event took place during the weekend of March 21.

Billed as the “All-American Grady Fest,” it was the fourth gathering in five years and people from around the continent attended.

Seventeen Grady-White owners clubs, including the host, Fish Tale Grady Club, and 12 Florida dealerships, including the lead sponsor, Fish-Tale Sales and Service, were represented. Seven Grady-White factory executives were on deck, including president Kris Carroll.

The main event tent welcomed Grady-White engineers, a Coast Guard commander, a detailing professional and a charter captain for question-and-answer sessions.
