Grady White’s popular Freedom 275 is getting a makeover for 2016 to offer more room. In addition to extending the helm area on the dual console, a reconfigured deluxe seating for cockpit spaciousness and a new deck design exude a special appeal. Top this with a wider port console entry, a new wet bar set-up, plus refined features (standard and optional) and the Freedom 275 is even more versatile and functional than before.
The anchor locker features a thru-hull chute for easier anchor deployment and a clear deck. The comfortable port and starboard bow box cushions can seat up to six people, while the entry to the lockable port console is wider for easy access—the new bow layout also allows for longer rod storage in the console. The widened helm area adds generous seating space for increased comfort. The standard helm seating—a horizontally and vertically adjustable chair—can be upgraded to a plush cushioned and contoured seat with flip-up bolster. The optional deluxe wet bar now faces inboard and is located just behind the helm seat. This entertainment feature can be equipped with a grill and refrigerator. The aft cockpit working space is enlarged for more room to play, fish or chill, and the restyled ski pylon (optional) that fully recesses into the transom when stored is sure to please tow sport enthusiasts. The Freedom 275 is available in one of five hull gel coat colors or two paint colors.
