2005 Grady-White 330 Express
Re-powered with 2006 F250s!
This Grady can take anything you throw at her. Run her out to the canyons for tuna, or cruise her on an extended trip with the family. She is one of the few boats equipped for serious offshore fishing that still has all the amenities of a cruiser with an enclosed head, full galley, and plenty of room below. She has a massive 80 square foot cockpit laid out for fishing with transom door, 314 qt fish box, 45 gallon live well, and a bait station. The 330 is wide, stable, and comfortable, and one of the best all around boats for the money.
On the Bow:
Going forward to the bow is simple as they have molded in steps leading up to wide sidedecks with 316 grade stainless rails for handholds along the way. At the front is a bow pulpit with the anchor passing through the slot and lead to a standard windlass. The only thing lacking was a skid plate to protect the deck from the chain and shackles. Foot switches and a remote at the helm mean you can single hand this rig or have helpers up front when necessary. Walking around up front I found it to be very stable and safe.
At the Helm:
You definitely have some good sight lines from the bridge deck. The windshield is tinted safety glass for long life and durability. The standard hardtop is much appreciated. It has an electronics box, zippered net storage overhead for life jackets and throwables, ventilation hatch and overhead two-color light. Spreader lights and 6 rocket launcher rod holders are on the back side of the top and it is reinforced so you can add radar and outriggers. Seating is in high style on this model as well. To port, you have a short bench seat with a drop-away end and adjustable footrest so one or two can join you. I really appreciated some extra touches, such as the 12 volt socket for my portable gear on both the port and starboard side seats. On the starboard side, the bench goes from the dash to the aft cockpit with another drop-away center piece so two can sit facing each other or everyone sits facing the driver. The driver's seat is a high-end Pompano fully adjustable deluxe seat with vertical and horizontal adjustments and flip armrests.
The cabin entry door was easy to open and to keep open with a heavy magnetic catch rather than the nail I see so often. Just inside the door were the controls for the optional cockpit air conditioning and the optional fish box chill plates. Up front is a raised berth with rod storage loops overhead and stained wood racks for books and magazines on the sides. Teak and holly floors with a single step up to the teak table really add some warmth to the space. The table drops down and a filler cushion added makes this into a berth. In the deepest part of the cabin, there is about 73" of cabin height.
The port side galley includes all the gear you need to stay out for an extended trip or overnight. Across from the galley is a separate head compartment. This compartment includes a vanity with storage, pull out shower wand and VacuFlush head. This compartment is ventilated and has about 71" of overhead for comfort.
Continuing the tour to the working space, the cockpit floor is reinforced so you can add a fighting chair for the serious angler. The cockpit has about 80 square feet of working space with 29" high gunwales and cockpit bolsters to protect your legs when giving the fish your best efforts. The gunwales have flush mounted rod holders and under gunwale rod racks. At the floor level are toe rails for safety when leaning over the sides. In the port corner is a handy drop box and in the wall below it is the battery switches and fuel cut-off valves. The center box is a 270-qt monster fish box. There is a super handy, bench seat that takes seconds to set up or put away. The walkthrough on the starboard side shows how serious they are with super duty handle and hinges. Off the stern was a three step telescoping swim ladder so you can get back on board after taking a cooling dip!
