Freedom 285

28' Dual Console

“We’re providing a lot more room in the Freedom 285 for socializing and all kinds of fun and all types of gear whether for fishing, diving, camping, tubing, wakeboarding or skiing,” says Joey Weller, vice president of sales and marketing at Grady-White. “Entertaining friends and family is what this boat is all about.” Not only is the bolstered cockpit more spacious, so is the enclosed head area in the port console. “An adult can change clothes in this console area,” Weller points out, “so you can go from a day on and in the water direct to a waterside restaurant for dinner. If you opt for the grill arrangement, you can feed the crew their favorites wherever you are–we even include a standard removable table for the bow or cockpit. These features make it possible for everyone to really enjoy day-long outings whether offshore at a secret fishing spot, beaching it on the coastline, or tucked in at a secluded cove.”
