**Top Reasons to Buy a Boat**
With so many opportunities for boating fun available today, there’s no reason why anyone can’t take advantage of the benefits that recreational boating has to offer. Read our personal list of Top Reasons for Boating below:
1. Boating Improves Quality of Life
It’s a proven fact that recreational boating goes a long ways towards improving your quality of life. The minute you start to move forward on a boat, you’ll notice how easy it is to leave your troubles behind. Recreational boating fun provides a constructive outlet for entertainment that reduces stress and provides enriching opportunities for self discovery, whether it’s learning how to water ski or simply enjoying the warm glow of an evening sunset.
2. Boating is an Affordable Recreation Alternative
Are you under the impression that recreational boating is too expensive for your current budget? Think again. Many boats can be financed for under $200 a month. Dedicated boating lenders will work with you to help you save money and get you the best financing package available. For help determining if you can afford to buy a boat, including boat loan basics, a boat loan calculator, and more, please contact us and we will be glad to help!
3. Water Access is Closer than you Think
Did you know that about ninety percent of Americans live less than an hour from a navigable body of water? This means that water access is a lot closer and more convenient than you might think.
4. Boating Fun Helps you Bond with Friends and Family
Fifty four percent of all households, in a study by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, listed fishing as their favorite boating activity (followed by cruising and relaxing with family and friends). In other words, to many people the best part about boating doesn’t revolve around the latest waterskiing tricks or the number of fish caught- the best part of boating is simply the opportunities it provides for boating fun with friends and family. Recreational boating is quality time spent away from the television set and the video games, creating an atmosphere that brings people together and creates fond memories to last a lifetime.
5. Boating Helps Reduce Stress
We can’t stress the statistics enough – numerous studies have shown that a little bit of boating fun each day can go a long way towards reducing stress. In fact, a National Marine Manufacturers Association survey of over 1,000 American households listed boating in the top-three of all stress-relieving activities.
6. Boating is Convenient
As we pointed out above, since over ninety percent of Americans live less than an hour’s drive from an accessible body of water, you can be enjoying the fresh air and water in no time.
In fact, the convenience of boating makes it possible to hop on your boat for a mini-vacation whenever you feel like it, as an alternative to other family recreation activities which can quickly add up to become even more expensive and time-consuming.
7. Boating is an Engaging and Rewarding Activity
Recreational boating offers lots of opportunities for personal growth. Whether you’re instilling your child with extra confidence as they learn how to properly secure a line, or you’re enjoying the delicate taste of fresh fish that you caught yourself, boating recreation provides many different rewards for all ages.
8. Boating is Good Exercise
From a rigorous sailing excursion to an invigorating run on waterskis, boating provides sporting enthusiasts with many active endeavors to choose from. In fact, we’d argue that simply breathing in the brisk wind coming off the water in itself can go a long ways towards strengthening one’s constitution- not to mention the additional physical and psychological benefits in terms of relaxation and stress relief.
9. Recreational Boating is Easy to Learn
If you’re new to boating, take heart. With so many available boating classes and courses to choose from, you’ll be out on the water before you know it. Whether you’ve always wanted to learn how to sail, or you’re just interested in new ways to spend quality time with your family, a wealth of available boater education courses make boating easier to learn than ever. To learn more about finding boating instruction near you, please contact us and we will get you to the right place!
10. Boating is FUN
Last but definitely not least, one of the top reasons for boating is simply because it’s so much fun. There are so many activities to explore when it comes to boating, whether you like to fish, waterski, snorkel, or simply enjoy relaxing on the water.

There is no more important issue to us at Grady-White than safety and security. So we “overbuild” every boat, and we “overdo” every detail. Every model, even the larger boats, has basic or level flotation (although not generally required in boats over 26 feet). Every boat has handholds built in right where you reach. Compare the safety factors before you buy another brand. Grady-Whites are built to be the safest choice in boating.
Every third party study ever done in the marine industry has ranked Grady-White highest in its category. No other coastal boat builder has been highest ranked even once. If you want the most satisfying boat experience, every indicator ever done says you really want the Grady-White.
This year, Grady-White celebrates well over 50 years of private ownership and well over 40 years of continuous ownership by the Smith family. That level of continuity is almost unheard-of, and is an important factor in being able to deliver a more satisfying boating experience. There is no substitute for the generations of knowledge your family-owned or family-staffed Grady-White dealer represents. Grady dealers are measured for performance, and are proven to be the best in the business.
Boat length for boat length, there is no ride like a Grady-White‘s. Grady-White‘s exclusive C. Raymond Hunt Associates-designed SeaV2 hull‘s continuously variable vee is truly incomparable. Step aboard a Grady-White and enjoy the best ride in boating.
Your Grady-White dealer is ready to do what it takes to ensure that you can get the Grady you‘ve always wanted. A family boat purchase is not the occasion to consider only the lowest price. What you want is total value. A Grady-White is a better value from the first day onward, and you‘ll appreciate this fact every time you‘re aboard. Ask your dealer to show you why a Grady-White is the best value in boating.
More than with any other brand, buying a Grady-White means buying a boating experience and not just a boat. Grady-White dealers are strategically located to help owners wherever, whenever, and they MEASURABLY have the highest standards of customer satisfaction. They have to, not only because it‘s good business but because Grady-White requires these high standards.

Our knowledgeable, experienced and friendly factory customer representatives are, without a doubt, the best in the business. They will bend over backwards to answer your questions and help ensure you have a great boating experience in your Grady-White.
Just compare the resale values as you are shopping. Look at the used boat classifieds. If you can find a Grady-White for sale, you clearly will see that a well-cared-for Grady-White commands a better resale price than any other boats in the category.
Ask a Grady-White owner. You‘ll discover that there is simply no other boatbuilder who has the longstanding depth of relationship with customers that Grady-White does. We call it “Grady Care” and it includes our award-winning Anchorline and Docklines print and e-newsletters, Owners Forums, Customer Surveys, our Facebook postings, our YouTube Channel, our Twitter tweets, an on-line resource center and Customer Tips area, over 100 Club and dealer sponsored events each year and much, much more. The Grady-White company truly cares about your boating experience more than others do.
Grady-White boats are products of a unique combination of saltwater heritage, a keen knowledge of coastal boating developed over 50 years, and a culture of long-term private ownership. Grady-White aims to ensure that product quality is NEVER a question so your investment lasts for the long term. From door latches, to grab rails, to handholds, to 316L stainless steel through-bolted cleats, all hardware is the very best quality, selected for utility and strength. Galley, head and cabin fixtures are the best available. Fiberglass and resins are the very strongest and hand laid for uniformity and strength. No coastal boat is built with closer attention to quality and function. The sea does not compromise and neither should you.
Grady-White is fiercely dedicated to our customers, and our management team is focused on the little things that make the difference between good and great. No other coastal boat company sweats the details like Grady-White.
The people that design and build Grady-Whites are boaters themselves. Factory engineers consult with dealers, associates and especially our boat owners to create the customer-oriented features that make a Grady-White such a pleasure. Grady-Whites are built using the most modern materials with the most thorough testing and quality control in the finest most thoroughly integrated boat plant of its kind in the world.

Chaos Boats represent the finest quality and performance found in shallow water fishing boats. Many builders claim such ideas. As acknowledged by veteran boaters, anglers, boat dealers, and boating industry leaders, Chaos Boats have the highest degree of fit and finish, structural integrity, and shallow water / rough water performance available today from any builder anywhere in the world.
Each boat is painstakingly hand crafted with an attention to detail that could be considered fanatical. We take great pride in knowing that each Chaos Boat built will provide its’ owner with years of pride of ownership as well as unforgettable boating and fishing experiences.
One look at Chaos Boats and you will see for yourself that only the highest quality components are installed by the most skilled and conscientious craftsmen.
The genuine Carolina hull design with substantial flare forward that transitions into generous tumblehome aft with an integrated rub strake requires hours of hand finishing by our North Carolina craftsmen due to the complex mold assemblies required to create such exotic shapes. Others in the industry allude to these shapes in their marketing language, but do not have the skill or desire to put forth the design and building effort to create the real thing. If you want an imitation, buy their boat.
If you are passionate about the ownership of a true Carolina boat, and you are looking for a true flats boat, an honest bay boat, or a quality yacht tender, Chaos Boats epitomize this class and are the only choice.
Ride. Everyone talks about the performance and awesome ride characteristics of their boats and we could do the same, like kids in a school yard each claiming they hit the ball further or harder.
It has been said that “Form Follows Function” and while we agree, we also believe that “Function Follows Form”. The Carolina bow flare is as attractive as it is functional in providing an integral spray deflector as well as creating an oversized bow casting area. The Carolina aft tumblehome flows aesthetically while providing a wider beam surface aft which creates additional stability at rest as well as more lift in order to “jump” on plane in shallow water.
Rough water. Skinny water. Shallow draft. Fishability in all conditions. Enviable Stylishness. Carolina Craftsmanship. Boats of Integrity.
When it comes to fishing, Grady-White’s Freedom 307 can compete against the fishiest of fishboats. But that misses the point. Its windshield, seating, and amenities make it tough to beat in the all-around boating catagory. It’s built strong enough to bust through inlets, something many large bowriders would like to claim but can’t.
Even if you never plan to leave the lake waterway, this boat’s self bailing cockpit, basic flotation, and Ray Hunt designed deep-V hull provide more of the comfort, security, easy maintenance, and confidence that boaters crave.
Simply Put – GRADY WHITE..
