The low entrance to the aft cabin which lies

Grady-White includes a 15” flat screen
TV, Kenwood stereo and Toshiba DVD
player for entertainment. A 4 kW diesel
generator is included to keep you comfortable away from shore power.
The galley features a storage locker
and three drawers under the Corian
counter and a storage locker with built-in
racking and mesh nets above. A Contoure
microwave is included as is an Isotherm
refrigerator and a two-burner ceramic
cooking surface. We liked the large,
round stainless-steel sink. Most parts are
in plastic or composite material for
strength and long life and the interior has
a full fiberglass liner.
The head is a usable size and again
has a Corian counter, handheld shower
and a Vacuflush MSD.
While all the virtues of the 330
Express seem to still be there, Canadian
buyers are sure to agree that the new
Grady-White 330 Hardtop makes a great
boat even better!
