Grady-White Canyon 366

The Canyon 366 is a multifaceted center-console that also performs well as a family boat.

Grady-White’s Canyon 366 is a multifaceted center-console. It can fish the blue water effectively, comfortably and safely. It’s also a wonderful family boat, with amenities that include a generous cabin with double berth. Another distinction that sets the Canyon 366 apart from other jumbo center-consoles is that it runs great when powered with just a pair of outboard motors.

The Canyon 366 has a huge beam. This results in huge interior volume. For instance, there’s space for four to lounge about and watch TV in the console cabin. Stash the kids here after a long day, while the adults socialize on deck. Also, with its head, shower, minigalley, double berth and massive stowage, a pair of tournament anglers could weekend aboard. So could a skipper and his mate.

That galley is functional, with microwave and refrigerator, but I’d order the optional grill ($1,145). Installed in the tackle center, it allows grilling burgers, steaks and fish for a crowd, rather than the microwaveable fare you’d likely cook in the galley. Located behind the leaning post, the tackle center’s standard arrangement includes a livewell, a fish box, capacious tackle stowage, leader dispenser, a sink and a really functional Grady-built rig rack that held lures securely when we ran offshore during the test.
