Ranging in size from 19 to 37 feet (as of late 2014, that is), no company offers more dual console models than Grady-White. Long popular for their multipurpose layout, big-water dual consoles like the 285 Freedom strike an excellent balance between cruising comfort and serious fishing potential. Introduced in 2012, the Freedom rides on a deep-V hull with an integrated dive platform and a moderate 9'6"" beam. Standard features include an anchor locker, recessed bow rails, enclosed head/change compartment (port console), deluxe pedestal helm seat, back-to-back companion seat with electric extendable lounge, foldaway rear bench seat, swim ladder, transom door, lockable console storage, cockpit bolsters, cockpit shower, raw-water washdown, gunnel rod holders, insulated fish boxes (2), rod storage racks, hydraulic tilt steering, and removable cockpit table. Options include a deluxe wet bar with refrigerator and grill, and hardtop with rod holders. A top-tier boat with a premium price, the 285 Freedom will cruise at 25 knots (40+ top) with twin Yamaha F250s.
