Founded in 1959, Grady-White Boats builds 26 models of fiberglass offshore, sport-fishing and family-fishing boats, from 18 to 45 feet, in Greenville, North Carolina.

One of the best-known and well-respected brands across several categories—and most represented in our survey—Grady-White’s reputation rides in large part on its hand-laid SeaV2 progressive hull. Deadrise begins at a stable 18 to 21 degrees at the transom, with wide chines providing stability both at rest and trolling, sharpening as it approaches the bow to split waves cleanly and softly.

The company has been awarded every third-party customer-satisfaction award ever presented in the marine industry, including JD Power and Associates Customer Satisfaction Awards and NMMA Customer Satisfaction Index honors.

Grady-White’s revisited Express 370 offers more cabin room, performance, details and reliability than many inboard boats larger in length, with plenty of sport-fishing focus too.

The cabin, with teak and holly sole, takes advantage of space otherwise dedicated to an inboard engine room. The dinette includes an adjustable table and booth-type seating. Berths are forward and aft, with a convertible dinette berth, and it’s all air-conditioned. Besides a full-feature galley, there’s abundant storage in cabinets, closet and drawers.

A deluxe captain’s helm chair adjusts vertically and horizontally. An electromechanically controlled enclosure raises and lowers to present electronics and instruments at the right height when needed, tucked away when not.

The 370′s hardtop has a motorized sunroof, four side rod holders, LED spreader and recessed lights, outrigger plates, SureShade electrically retractable shade, and side and drop curtains.

A starboardside rigging station includes sink and lockable tackle drawers (welcoming the four utility boxes that 49 percent say they need), along with a 48-gallon livewell.

A reinforced floor area awaits a fighting chair. Four gunwale-mounted rod holders meet the needs of 27 percent of survey respondents in the inboard sport-fisherman category, in which this outboard boat most nearly fits. A 291-quart aft refrigerator/freezer fish box with thermostat dramatically reduces ice demands.
