Grady-White Upgrades Freedom 275
By Tom Richardson on September 8, 2015
Grady-White has upgraded its popular Freedom 275 dual console for 2016, increasing its versatility. The 275 now features an expanded helm area and reconfigured deluxe cockpit seating. Also new is a wider port console entry and a wet bar arrangement.
Other features of the 275 include an anchor locker with through-hull chute for easier deployment and a cleaner look. The bow has room for 6 on the comfortable port and starboard box cushions. Moving aft, entry to the lockable port console with head has been widened for easier access, and a new bow layout allows for longer rod storage in the console.
The wider helm now features more seating space. Standard helm seating is a deluxe horizontally and vertically adjustable chair, and can be upgraded to a plush cushioned, contoured seat with flip-up bolster. Companion seating has also been widened, and includes an electromechanically extendable lounge seat, all on a rugged fiberglass base.
The optional deluxe wet bar now faces inboard, and is located just behind the helm seat. This entertainment center has a Corian countertop, sink, fire extinguisher holder, storage and trash compartment, and can be equipped with a grill and refrigerator.
The aft cockpit has been enlarged to provide more room to fish or relax, and a folding transom bench seat provides additional seating when needed. For tow-sports enthusiasts, Grady offers a restyled ski pylon that fully retracts into the transom when not in use.
The Freedom 275 is now available in 5 hull gelcoat colors or 2 paint colors.
