Re: My Grady White 208 Adventure

Pros:cuts through water great, great for fishing, sleeps two no problem and much more

Cons:could use a table in the cabin, they cost a pretty penny

Me and my wife bought our Grady White 208 Adventure this last summer. We looked around for a while too but just couldn't find a boat with a good rep that we really liked. Then we saw our 1998 GW. I think we really liked it from the get go for a couple good reasons. One was that they hold a very good resale value. We looked around at other boats and if they were a 2 or 3 year old boat it seemed like people were trying to give their boat away. I think that told us something about the boat if the resale dropped so drastic that either everyone does not like that boat or the boat was just no good. The second thing we liked was the good rep that Grady Whites have. I have yet to meet a Grady White owner that does not rave about their boat. I myself rave about it all the time. Their are a couple not so good part to the boat though. One is that they do cost a lot to buy it. Compared to other boats in it's category the Grady was a bit costly. Then again I am a person who believes in you get what you pay for and I feel that our boat has not let us down in that aspect. The other thing is that in the cabin there is no table. I looked at a couple other boats this size and they had where the bed could make a table when not in use. I feel that that is a great idea and the Grady would only benefit from doing this also. Plus when you are going to spend the night in it you can actually sit and be totally comfortable. However, that is a very minor aspect of the boat and feel that this is not a big deal. The motor that came with our boat is a Johnson 150hp Oceanrunner. I feel like it moves the boat great with no problems. I have had 6 people on it for a cruise and it got up and went. Now when it comes to the water conditions it is great. A deep vee hull has a lot to do with that. Plus the boat is a heavy boat where it cuts through waves very nicely. I do wish it had a little more room in the electronics compartment. I have my radio and my GPS in there and I would like to put a fish finder in there but there is no room so oh well I can do without. All in all I use the boat mostly for a weekend stay once in a while and every weekend for fishing. It makes a great fishing boat. To sum it all up I would buy my boat again with no hesitation. I love my Grady White. I say inshore waters but I head out quite a few miles but I don't know if that is offshore or not. I would actually put down a 4 1/2 but I put a 5 down because I do not feel a rating of 4 is high enough.
