In addition to readers in the United States, boaters and boat industry professionals worldwide from over 70 countries have purchased David Pascoe's books, since introduction of his first book in 2001.
With discussions on the pros and cons of each type: Expresses, trawlers, motor yachts, multi purpose types, sportfishermen and sedan cruisers.
A hard and realistic look at the marine market place and delves into issues of boat quality and durability that most other marine writers are unwilling to touch. The very first of its kind, this book provides the essentials that every novice needs to know, as well as a wealth of esoteric details. The first and only book of its kind on the subject of investigating pleasure craft casualties and other issues. Sailfish powercats were top-five aluminium fishing boats at Australia’s Greatest Boats three years running.
After spending a few hours on the Grady-White Canyon 376 centre console fishing boat it’s hard not to be a fan of the brand. Demand for centre console fishing boats is on the rise, especially so among the hardcore fishing fraternity.
The 11.15m Grady-White Canyon 376 has a typical centre console layout of open bow and stern decks with a console mounted in approximately the centre of the hull. With a larger than usual centre console, its gunwales are higher than standard with wide coamings, full bolstered trims all round, and loaded with slick internal mouldings with plenty of rod-rack storage front and rear. The seating structure is amazing as it not only seats three very comfortably within the protection of the console, screen and hardtop, but also has a rear section open to the stern with built-in electric grill, large volume livewell and plumbed sink – basically, take a fish out of the well, clean it and chuck on the grill! Behind the wheel, the captain gets the centre seat which suits standing and seated driving and has a dash setup to die for. Other innovative features included the electronic top vent on the screen which adds to ventilation, and side vents that blow air-conditioned air onto you while seated at the console. Behind the controls you have the option of sitting back and relaxing while driving, or standing if preferred.
After having Eric Sorenson from Grady-White give a spectacular display for the photos, I had a good idea on how it performed.
Interestingly the Canyon 376 is actually rated to a maximum horsepower of triple 350hp outboard motors (1050hp). After spending a few hours on the Grady-White Canyon 376 it’s hard not to become a fan of the brand.
I will try to post some pictures here, but I also have many more that I can email to anyone interested. Hull 2650, motor 400, 82 gallons of gas 490, 10 gallons water 80, batteries 80, oil 25, gear and miscellaneous items 300, trailer 1000, total of 4,945. Regarding the fuel burn, I wish I had specific fuel burn numbers, but as there is no fuel flow meter on the boat, I don't have them, but I am attaching the Grady burn numbers with a HPDI, which probably gets better mileage (4 miles per gallon at cruise) than the SSII engine, but I know the SSII on myboat gets very good mileage.


You're now following grady white boat in your eBay Feed.You'll receive email alerts for new listings. The quality externally and internally, the build, innovation, style, performance and handling; and the way it’s been designed around safety is unique. The niche centre console "clan" are dedicated (and probably selfish anglers) like myself, who like to believe that their boats are family-friendly. When boarding via the rear platform and door onto the rear deck, you get the feeling that you have just stepped into a big-dollar rig – that’s just how luxurious it feels. It’s trimmed with recessed grabrails which host things like drinkholders and mounted speakers. Again it’s a workable and spacious setup, but what I really liked was the electro-mechanically operated electronics dash enclosure which, at the flick of a switch, opens the mid-section of the dash where valuable electronics have been mounted. It’s very spacious with full headroom and definitely an area that can be used to sleep quite comfortably in, or just a good chill out area. Everything is adjustable and either way you will find an ideal position of the steering and seat to suit. Eric literally made the Grady-White 376 look like a high-performance trailerboat being thrown around – tight turns at high speed, WOT runs in all directions to the swell – you name it, he did it.
Having the full demo prior to driving I gave it my hardest and can only report that it is an absolute beauty to drive.
The test boat had twins fitted but after experiencing such amazing all-round performance from the twin 350s, the devil inside me now wants a taste of the triple setup. And let’s face it, when spending $500,000 or so on a boat, I doubt the extra 40-grand for another engine is going to break the bank. The quality externally and internally, the build, innovation, style, performance and handling; even the way it’s been designed around safety is just something quite unique. Whether you're researching a new boat, or are a seasoned Captain, you'll find The Hull Truth Boating & Fishing Message Forum contains a wealth of information from Boaters and Sportfishermen around the world. This may be true – to a degree – but when it comes to asking the family the same question, they would most certainly disagree – and I speak from experience.
Like every other hatch on the boat, all lids and doors have gas strut assist and water-tight seals.
Once set up, manoeuvring the boat is surprisingly easy for its size as you even have a small bowthruster for assistance.
The low down and top end torque of the motors is phenomenal and yet the ride is like cutting though butter. Yes, it carries a fair price tag at $499,000 as tested, and you might wonder who the hell would buy one – I sure would (after winning Lotto). So is it possible to create the perfect centre console that not only serves as an offshore game-fishing weapon, but also as an entertaining boat that family and friends can enjoy and approve of ?


Fly-by-wire controls and electronically-assisted steering makes it super smooth on the hands to operate. It can handle a WOT throttle speed of 40kts easily; it carves smoothly into turns, and feels safe enough to give an amateur a turn at the wheel. But for others with a bit of cash to spare, it could actually be the ideal upgrade to a boat that’s classy and not a handful to handle, or the perfect step back for those tired of the maintenance and expense found on the larger motor yachts.
Well, I’ll leave the answer up to you as the latest Grady-White Canyon 376 centre console fishing boat can certainly speak for itself. I really could not fault the ride in any way – bloody amazing.his kind of handling and performance can only take you in one direction – and that’s out toward the continental shelf, fishing for marlin or tuna. Yes, you will chew up a bit of extra juice but if fuel consumption is not an issue you will be out there fishing way before anyone else gets there! For the avid gamefisherman the height of the motors and high transom does a good job keeping the deck dry while backing up. Raymond Hunt & Associates• Stainless steel thru-hull fittings• All 316-grade stainless steel• 100% hand laid hull and deck• All drink holders, rod holders and pull up cleats are connected to tubes that allow water and condensation to drain onto the deck, rather than into the bilge.Sea V2 HullWe’d be remiss if we didn’t have a discussion of the Sea V2 hull design. Raymond Hunt & Associates with a continually changing deadrise as the bottom configuration transitions forward. In this case, it starts at 16-degrees at the transom and increases from there as the eye moves forward.Here’s a shot of the variable deadrise Sea V2 hull design. A Key Design FactorWith boats that are designed for open water fishing work, there is typically a deeper V at the transom. Her low deadrise gives her shoal draft making her easy to beach, and ideal for anglers in skinny water.A Softer SideThe hull design saves the deeper V for the bow, providing a sharp entry that easily cuts through chop and short waves, creating a smooth ride and little to no pounding, depending on speed and conditions of course.
If the speed can be picked up, then her wide bow flare keeps spray out and away from the boat, providing a dry ride.
The strakes also contribute to that dry ride acting as deflectors once the boat is on top.Staying on TrackOne added advantage of the Sea V2 hull design is her ability to track straighter in following or quartering waves. Under the forward console seat, owners can go with a standard cooler or opt for a livewell. A freshwater shower for cleaning the feet off before going from the beach to the boat is a great idea and it’s connected to a 10-gallon (37.9 L) tank.
