The Grady-White 282 Sailfish is an updated version of the best-selling 272 Sailfish (19942000), one of the best boats in her class for cockpit space, fishability, and build quality. Originally designed with an aft bench seat and transom rigging station, the cockpit of the 282 Sailfish was redesigned in 2005 to include an aft fish box and a space-saving foldaway rear bench seat in place of the fixed rear seat. Standard features include an integrated swim/dive platform, 40-gallon lighted livewell (under companion seat), cushioned fish boxes, anchor locker, cockpit lights, raw-water washdown, cockpit bolsters, transom door, insulated cooler, cockpit shower, gunnel rod holders, and trim tabs. Below deck, the well-appointed cabin with teak and holly sole includes a galley with microwave and fridge, enclosed head/shower, midcabin berth, and convertible dinette/V-berth forward. Wide walkaways around the cabin are a plus, and with over 200 gallons of fuel capacity, the 282 has plenty of range. A heavily built boat with exceptional fit and finish, the 282 Sailfish tops out at close to 40 knots with twin Yamaha 250s.
