Grady-White is pioneering a whole new category of inshore/offshore boat with the introduction of the sporty 251 CE, “Coastal Explorer.” The 251 CE is the first of its kind from Grady-White, and is designed to provide a piece of heaven for practicality, utility, ease of use and comfort around back waters, beaches, waterways, sounds and inlets, along with Grady-Built peace of mind. Here’s the Grady-White answer for off-the-beaten-track coastal fun and versatility in skinnier water. Although created for use inshore, the 251 CE is not a “bay boat,” offering much more offshore capability and versatility than any boat in that genre.
The 251 CE Coastal Explorer features low gunwales that provide very easy access to the water, and a bow ladder for beaching. This low profile look is all new for Grady-White, and the boat offers performance to match its style. Transformable seats forward and aft go from bench style to lounge, and make the boat perfect for relaxing and fun for socializing. As with every Grady-White, add rods and tackle and you have a fishing boat that is truly without peer.
The 251 CE is every inch a solid, proven center console backed by over 50 years of heritage and design success that only Grady-White can offer. Her loaded features will further add to customer satisfaction levels earned from a reputation for quality, reliability, safety and craftsmanship.
Established in 1959, Grady-White currently builds 29 models of saltwater-tough, versatile, high quality center console, dual console, express and walkaround cuddy cabin sportfishing and coastal family boats from 18 to 37 feet at its plant in Greenville, NC.
