2022 Grady-White Freedom 325

The Freedom 325 is an innovative boat that boasts versatility and top-of-the-line finish.

Do-it-all dayboats may be common, but Grady-White’s Freedom 325 proves uncommonly capable. Its versatility comes from mixing luxury, numerous amenities, and the builder’s industry-leading, high-quality craftsmanship. Decades of building superior boats  well-suited for offshore waters shows up in the form of its SeaV2 hull. The iconic and proprietary design handles open water confidently and is made using hand-laid -fiberglass, a painstaking quality-assurance process that other boatbuilders forsake in the name of expediency. Unlike other boats, the 325’s self-bailing cockpit provides safety and convenience because water in the cockpit, boxes, and even in the cup holders drains overboard. Confidence is built into every Grady-White boat.

The Freedom 325 also delivers luxury in large doses. The forward lounge is  deep and spacious. Close the center windshield for weather protection, and beat the heat with available air conditioning. Aft, both the helm and companion seats offer electromechanically extendable benches, an uncommon feature. A bench also deploys from the transom, and we applauded the optional wet bar aboard our test boat. Boarding or water access is easy and safe via a portside door and a transom door that leads to a swim platform.

Inside, the consoles reveal more amenities. To port is a head complete with all the comforts, plus luxuries like a cedar-lined locker. In the starboard console is a cushioned double berth, perfect for afternoon naps or cozy overnights at anchor.

Dual-console boats also allow their owners to fish, making them more versatile than other dayboats, and Grady-White, a pioneer of the offshore dual-console model, delivers here. Two huge insulated fish/ice boxes in the sole total more than 400 quarts of storage. The 32-gallon livewell is insulated and features full-column distribution. There are rod holders, rod racks, a cutting board and, thanks to the innovative seating, space to bring the catch of the day right aboard.
