GREENVILLE, NC: Grady-White is pioneering a whole new category of inshore/offshore
boat with the introduction of the sporty 251 CE, “Coastal Explorer.” The 251 CE is the first of
its kind from Grady-White, and is designed to provide a piece of heaven for practicality,
utility, ease of use and family fun with comfort around back waters, beaches, waterways,
sounds and inlets, along with Grady-Built peace of mind. Here’s the Grady-White answer
for off-the-beaten-track coastal fun and versatility in skinnier water. Although created for
use inshore, the 251 CE is not a “bay boat,” offering much more offshore capability and
versatility than any boat in that genre.

The 251 CE Coastal Explorer features low gunwales that provide very easy access to the
water, and a bow ladder for beaching. This low profile look is all new for Grady-White, and
the boat offers performance to match its style. Transformable seats forward and aft go
from bench style to lounge, and make the boat perfect for playing, relaxing, and fun for
socializing. As with every Grady-White, add rods and tackle and you have a fishing boat
that is truly without peer. Packed with so many features, there’s something for everyone in
the family on this boat.

The 251 CE is every inch a solid, proven center console backed by over 50 years of heritage
and design success that only Grady-White can offer. Her loaded features will further add to
customer satisfaction levels earned from a reputation for quality, reliability, safety and
