Take a look at the Freedom 255’s split-bow lounge. you can walk all the way forward for handling lines or casting to a fish, and like the Pursuit, with plush upholstery and nicely angled backrests, comfortable seating for four remained, even after I installed the cockpit table. Aft of the windshield, my tester was fitted with a module ($9,125) that incorporated an electrically adjustable helm seat on its forward side and the optional electric grill and wet bar aft of that. To port, a back-to-back sleeper seat ($710) was installed. With the standard folding transom bench and enclosed head, the amenities really make the dual-console layout pop for family cruising and dockside entertaining. But don’t think for a minute that Grady-White abandoned its fish-boat heritage with the 255.
