Cape Fear Grady Club

Welcome to the Cape Fear Grady Club page!  Our club is setup for local Grady-White owners to enjoy their boats, learn more about local waters, venture to places they may not feel comfortable going alone, and enjoy life on the water with other Grady-White owners.  Everyone, from those new to boating, to the most experienced captain, is welcome to join!


Club members are invited to join us Thursday, January 25, from 5:00pm until 8:00pm for a drop-in VIP Reception. We’ll have a first look at Grady Club events for the 2024 season and offer priority registration for all events! Jordan will offer a presentation of the events at 6:00pm. RSVP requested by January 22.


On Thursday, February 1, at 5:30pm, Grady Club members are invited to join us for an Oyster Roast at the Center for Marine Science in Wilmington. Hear from the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary on their community involvement, tour the shellfish hatchery, hear from Dr. Ami Wilbur, Director, UNCW Shellfish Research Hatchery, enjoy fresh, local oysters, and a cold beverage!


Travel to Greenville, NC to see how your Grady-White Boat was constructed from lamination to final finishing. Meet the team who built your boat on the plant floor. Following the tour, join some of the executive staff and Kris Carroll, President of Grady-White Boats, for lunch. Registration required.

What are our club members saying?

“This was an amazing trip!  It was so well planned and it was obvious that Jordan put much thought into each detail.  The group of people who traveled were delightful, we made new friends and caught up with old acquaintances.   The appetizers at Lulu’s were delicious and a nice surprise!  The Docktail Party was such a nice way to blend two cities of folks who like to boat, on a GRADY!…PERFECT!  FUN!” – Holly Sellers, Grady-White Express 330, Charleston Trip

“This trip was actually more fun than we thought it was going to be…and we had pretty high expectations going in!  Jordan did a fantastic job with the communication and information before the trip and handled logistics during the trip like the pro that he is.  We can’t wait for the Bald Head event.  The location of CHRM just can’t be beat.  Loved the quick ride over to town in the water taxi.  Marina staff were very helpful at both locations, but the staff at Grande Dunes really stood out from a service perspective.” -Dr. Eric Mansell, Grady-White Fisherman 216, Charleston Trip
