David Poston has enjoyed every Grady-White hes ever owned starting in 2005 when he purchased a Freedom 205. However, his love for the Grady brand became even stronger in 2019 when he crossed the ocean from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to the Bahamas on his Freedom 275  joined by two larger boats. The performance of the SeaV hull in rough seas, along with all the comfort features Grady-White incorporates into every boat, made for a great vacation, and the addition of a few extra passengers on the ride home.
