2022 Grady-White Freedom 307

The Freedom 307 blends a soft ride with many fishing amenities.

Grady-White might offer the most complete range of dual-console boats available, with nine models from 21 to 37 feet. Its customers buy them to cruise, sunbathe, beachcomb, and maybe take the larger ones to the Bahamas. And they definitely buy them to fish.

The 307 is perfectly equipped to do all of it. Its SeaV2 hull is a variable deadrise hull. Its design is unique to Grady-White and was developed to give crisp handling, cleave waves softly, and provide a stable platform at rest. The 307 is equipped with twin Yamaha 300 outboards, which provide exciting performance and reliability. It’s Grady’s long-term partnership with the reliable Yamaha brand, plus its own overbuilt construction and yacht-quality fit-and-finish, that have kept Grady-White at the top of the list of every customer satisfaction survey out there.

The captain gets a double-wide helm with a flip-up bolster, making it comfortable to drive either standing or while seated with feet tucked into the helm station’s footrest. The dash is designed to hold digital gauges, dual GPS screens, a VHF radio and a Fusion stereo controller.

On the portside console, a large seat with a flip-over backrest makes it comfortable to face forward or aft. Extend that seat well into the fighting cockpit at the convenient touch of a button. Touch it again to tuck it away for cockpit fighting space.

A transom seat folds away for open real estate too. Grady’s livewells are oval and surround the bait with a circulating wall of water from the builder’s patented plenum that distributes flow from top to bottom. Rod holders in the gunwales, rocket launchers on the hardtop (sacrificed if you choose the optional SureShade), and rod hangers under the gunwale keep tackle at the ready.

Bow seating caps the list of luxury accommodations. Wraparound cushions, thick coaming bolsters and ideally inclined forward-facing lounges are even more noteworthy thanks to Grady’s durable vinyl and firm, multidensity foam for long-lasting comfort.
