New Boat: Grady-White Fisherman 236
By Tom Richardson on July 25, 2016
Grady-White’s all-new Fisherman 236 combines functional fishing features with family-friendly amenities and options, all based on the company’s stable, smooth-riding SeaV2 hull.
The roomy cockpit offers lots of rod and tackle storage, a standard live well, plus large, insulated fishboxes fore and aft. Seating includes bow seats with available foldaway forward-facing, bolstered, adjustable backrests, as well as a foldaway transom bench. A stand-up head area inside the console is one of the many features that are normally found on bigger models.
Also standard are the new swim-platform extensions port and starboard that double as convenient boarding areas, with starboard-side, deck-level auxiliary anchor storage. The starboard platform features a sturdy, 4-step swim ladder. Access to the transom is gained via a heavy-duty transom door with positive-locking hardware. Additional deck level storage is featured on the port side, forward of the platform extension. For tow-sports, an optional ski pylon tucks into the transom when not in use.
Standard helm seating is a lean bar with backrest, flip-up bolster and rod storage, as well as knife and pliers holders. Upgrades include a deluxe lean bar with additional live well capacity. The optional T-top offers a full-height windshield, while the enclosed head compartment comes with a standard portable head, LED lighting and extra storage.
Forward, there’s seating for up to 6 on the thick port and starboard bow cushions, or passengers can enjoy the optional fold-away forward facing bolstered adjustable backrests. The bow anchor locker is available with an optional windlass.
The Fisherman 236 is available in 6 hull gelcoat colors or one paint color.
