The Grady-White 273 Chase (called the 263 Chase until 2002 when the console was redesigned) is a premium big-water center console perfect for family cruising and serious fishing. Grady-White kept the 263/273 Chase in production for almost two decades which says a lot about this boat’s lasting appeal. The Chase has a conventional deck layout with forward seating and a console head compartment with Porta-Potti and freshwater sink. A 32-gallon lighted livewell is located in the aft port corner of the cockpit, and a large 185-quart insulated fish box is built into the transom. There are two additional 104-quart fish/storage boxes forward, beneath the bow seats. The pop-up electronics console at the helm is a great feature, and a fiberglass insert fits between the forward seats to form a casting deck. Additional standard amenities include a deluxe leaning post with backrest and rod holders, foldaway stern seat, lockable rod storage, cockpit bolsters, and transom door. Built on a deep-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom, the 8'6"" beam of the Chase makes her one of the biggest center consoles able to be trailered without a permit. Yamaha 225s top out at about 45 knots.
