What boat combines elegance, panache and sociability in equal measure with versatility, fishability and seaworthiness? Check out the Grady-White Freedom 325.

Designed as the ultimate dayboat, this Carolina-built dual-console model houses a bright and comfortable portside head with a VacuFlush commode, sink, cedar-lined hanging locker, and a smart berth to starboard for napping kids. So, whether you’re planning an all-day family trip or need to change for dinner after offshore fishing, the Freedom 325 handles the task.

Topside, the Freedom 325 is luxuriously welcoming. Anglers will appreciate the wide-open cockpit for its space, copious fish boxes, rod racks, lighted 32-gallon livewell and more. When it’s time to entertain, the 325 offers flexible seating and lounging options, including a foldaway aft bench, helm and portside seats with electromechanically extendable lounges, and bow lounges with a table that doubles as a casting platform or sun pad with cushions. A powerful Bluetooth-enabled touchscreen stereo features six speakers with LED lights. Versatility abounds with water access via both a port side door with a removable ladder, and a transom door that leads to integrated boarding platforms and a four-step ladder.

Above, the all-new AV2 hardtop is rugged, elegant and functional. With a painted aluminum frame, it houses many amenities, including a full-height windshield, a side enclosure canvas, LED lighting, rod holders, a retractable SureShade cockpit sunshade and more. Underneath, the tempered glass windshield features a windbreak door and an electromechanical center vent. The twin 300 hp Yamaha Full Maneuverability outboards power this Freedom to a top speed over 48 mph, and a swift and thrifty 29 mph cruise speed.

Of course, the best part might be the ride of this Grady-White. Its SeaV2 hull has long-proven its worth on tumultuous waters, with its hand-laid fiberglass hull and deck construction. Both the design and the build inspire owner confidence.

If you enjoy all that the life afloat affords, consider purchasing Grady-White’s versatile Freedom 325.
