2020 Grady-White 275FRD twin!
Here’s a 27-foot dual console that’s well suited for family boating and a range of coastal activities: Grady-White’s Freedom 275. The 275's configurations and features combine cruiser amenities with saltwater tough safety and performance to create a versatile sport fishing boat. The stability and responsiveness are amazing!
While bow riders have always been popular in big continental countries, like Australia and the US, they have generally been less so in New Zealand’s rather less settled conditions. Their lack of protection when the wind kicks up and the fact they have often feature shallower vee hulls (again, not ideal if things turn nasty) have limited their appeal. So too has their fit-out. In a land where the main motivation for buying a trailerboat is to go fishing, they were usually set up primarily for lounging. While the new Grady-White Freedom 275 certainly has plenty of space in which to lounge comfortably, there is also no shortage of room (or fixtures) for those keen on catching fish. There is a live bait tank, integral fish bins for bait or the catch, rod holders in all the right places, bolsters and toe kicks along the cockpit sides and across the transom (for fighting big fish) and even secure “hidden” stowage for those precious rods. There is also no shortage of protection from elements. In fact, in many ways, the Freedom 275 doesn’t even look like a traditional bow rider. Its centrally-mounted dual console towers high above the deck and, thanks to its Vista bimini top and tight clears front and sides, the protection it offers is as good as that found under a traditional hardtop. And, if lounging around doing very little is your thing, there is a fully appointed bow section with comfortable seating, backrests and drink holders close at hand and, in the cockpit, an electromechanically extendable lounge seat along with a traditional Grady-White foldaway transom bench seat. As one would expect from a marque that has won more customer satisfaction surveys than any other, the Freedom 275 is not only beautifully presented but is obviously solidly built as well.
