This Grady-White Sailfish 254 is known for being a good rough water boat. Higher freeboard and walkaround helm provides protection from the weather. The Grady's beam 9'6" improves stability and increased the width of the gunnel for easier access forward to the bow. Also, the increased beam is most noticed in the cabin area. There is room for a separate head and galley area. The cockpit includes an additional rod holder, outriggers, (stored in the cabin), transom fish boxes, saltwater wash down.
