2018 Grady White 251 Explorer Center Console
2017 Yamaha F300NCA Engine (56 Hours)
No Trailer
Location: Bluffton, SC

This beautiful "LIKE NEW" Grady White 251 Coastal Explorer CC Powered by a 2017 Yamaha F300NCA Engine (56 hours) is in great condition, just serviced and turn-key ready. $115K FIRM.

As shown in the video this Grady White 251CE comes with a Garmin GPSmap XSV, VHF, Stereo, Retractable Trim Tabs, Boat Cover while being loaded with many other features for fishing and family fun days. It also features additional purchased options such as the fiberglass T-top and full seating upholstery including back rests.

Special Notes 3-30-2022: This vessel was just under contract for 3 weeks at $115,000 which is the bottom line and FIRM. The previous buyer loved the boat sight unseen, but on my initial evaluation I missed that there is a complete Trolling Motor set up (minus the trolling motor) installed from a 3-battery pack with charger wired from stern to bow. The holes are also pre-drilled for a mount. The seller said it just came like that (see the last 2 pictures). The buyer did not want the boat with this set up including the pre-drilled holes. The surveyor brought this to light. The buyer was kind enough to let us have the survey report (3-27-20), engine print out and compression test. All the cost of inspections and the work is done for you! This vessel was rated 1 step down from Bristol. 

Brokers Notes: This vessel is in great shape. I have no complaints which is unusual except I misquoted run time hours at 52 versus 56 in the video. The Yamaha warranty runs until 3-13-2023. There is no trailer in the sale of this vessel. All items as seen (except personal items) are being conveyed. There are no liens or encumbrances to slow down a quick cash sale on this vessel.

Service Notes: This vessel just had a complete $1,800 service done including 2 new batteries at 52 hours. Service record is on file.

The 25-foot 251 CE Coastal Explorer center console is in a class by itself, a surpassing answer to other larger shallow water boats. Notably, the 251 is created for inshore use primarily as a sport fishing boat and offers more offshore, rough water capability than any bay boat. Here's the best answer to off-the-beaten-track family fun and versatility.

The Grady-White 251 CE is the first model in the Coastal Explorer series that is specifically designed for the millions of people who live near large bodies of water and want to go boating both in protected water and along the coast as well. Further, the 251 CE has been carefully designed to incorporate all the best features that have proved to be popular with families who enjoy watersports activities such as swimming, beaching, and towing sports. Our test boat was powered by a single 300-hp outboard that gave her a top speed of 49.2 mph and a range of 211 statute miles at best cruise.
