255 Bow Rider Outboard Powered with the new 4.2 Yamaha

Grade White, with its unique SeaV2 hull bottom shape designed for them by C. Raymond Hunt Associates gives a ride that needs to be experienced on your local waters Its really different in several ways from other v hulls that in the first 10 minutes you will know you have experienced something special from a great boat builder.

Power one with the new, 4.2 Yamaha 250 Hp outboard and experience the next generation in four stroke outboards. Cruise at a whisker under 30 mph for best fuel economy and expect to hit 45 mph with the throttle all the way open, WOT, light load.

This is a new design (the Freedom 255) coming from Grady White. It’s a bow rider (or dual console, in Grady White speak) that comes with a motor well, not a bracket mount outboard design. LOA will be 24’ 9”, beam, 8’ 6” and an outboard motor 30” shaft length for a single outboard powered boat.

Yamaha’s new 4.2 liter outboard motor comes in at 558 lbs dry weight. Use mid-grade gas and get 250 Hp at 5,500 rpm. This outboard is a three star CARB engine.
