2001 Grady White 247 Advance (257 hull post-2001)
LOA - 25' 6", Beam - 102", 150gal fuel tank
Twin Yamaha 150HP HPDI, 17p stainless Mercury Mirage Plus props
2.0-2.2mpg at cruise in smooth seas, 1.6-1.7mpg loaded in heavy seas (I post realistic numbers, not pie in the sky, no-load numbers)
Engines had 933 hours when I bought it two years ago. Need to have them scanned to know exact hours. I'd say they are approaching 1000 if not just past. All maintenance on them has been done at defined intervals and nothing spared. They start up like new and run like a dream. Never a hiccup.
Financial conditions forces sale. I love this boat and planned to keep it for many years. It pains me to sell it and until it sells I will be fishing it. I fish it 70+ offshore here in Northeast Florida, took it to the Keys last year, and also use it in the river with family.

Everyone asks so I will let you know I tow this most anywhere with a 5.4L 2wd Ford Expedition. A couple people I fish with have diesel trucks and when they go we use their trucks but just to let you know I tow it with my Expedition as well and it does just fine. I have a trans temp gauge and I watch it and it?s always in the safe range.
Some of these pics are before I had the upholstery redone (past couple months) and I need to uncover her and get some updated ones but these are what I had, some from last summer and fall and some I took under the cover the other day. I will get some updated ones once the weather clears up here and I get her uncovered and in the sunlight. If there is something you want specific pics of just let me know.
I am asking $37,000 for her rigged as-is, less if you have your own electronics or want it rigged differently. I haven't been able to find a comparably rigged twin-engine Grady in this condition for any less so I feel this is a fair price. If its not, please email or call me. I will accept offers but no low-ball offers. I do not have the time or patience for that and would rather keep it than give it away.
I can be reached via email at mrdengle (at) gmail (dot) com or by phone at 9O4-226-262I and my name is Danny. Please no PM's, as I can reply to emails right from my phone and PM's don't allow that. Or just call. That's my cell phone number above. I am open to questions from anyone and sea-trial for serious buyers.
