The Grady-White Freedom 285 comes with space to fight fish in the cockpit and seating for at least six. Features Inspection The Cockpit

The Freedom 285s versatility is on full display in the 65-square foot (19.8 sq. m) cockpit. Aft to starboard, theres gated passage to the combination engine mounting bracket/swim platform, which has a four-step stainless steel boarding ladder and space to walk around in front of the motors. A hatch in the passageway opens a locker for the battery switches.

For fishing

In the center of the stern there is a 185-quart (175.1 L) insulated fishbox with a 32-gallon (121 L) livewell to port. The raw water livewell has a full column inlet plenum, a cutting board hatch and a light. There are coaming panels all along the gunwales with rod racks and toerails down low. For relaxing, a bench seat that could accommodate two comfortably folds out of the stern.

The passageway to starboard makes it easy to head out onto the swim platform or pull in a large fish.The hatches for the fishbox and the livewell open on stainless-steel struts that are mounted to cause as little obstruction as possible.The raw-water washdown in the port gunwale is convenientl
