Gannet is a one-owner Grady White and has been gently used as a commuter boat to an offshore island in the Mount Desert Island area. Her outboard has low hours, she has been professionally maintained and stored winters. She is clean, well priced, and a good value for her next owner.
Grady-White has a reputation for building strong, stiff sea boats using proven techniques. While you won’t find vacuum-bagged hulls with vinylester resins or Kevlar-reinforced keels, the North Carolina company has a track record of building them right.
Hulls and decks are laid up by hand using knitted and woven fiberglass fabrics. A couple layers of 1-1/2-ounce knitted fiberglass mat are layered on top of gelcoat in the mold, and that is built upon using bi- and tri-directional woven fiberglass mat.
Stringer systems are constructed of Perma Panel pressure-treated plywood cut on a computerized router and glassed in place while the hull is in its mold. Closed-cell polyurethane foam is sprayed between the stringers, providing strength and rigidity, as well as flotation and sound dampening. An inch of foam is sprayed on fishboxes and live wells for insulation, but the painted aluminum fuel tanks aren’t foamed-in to avoid trapping moisture.
All Grady-White boats have basic foam flotation and those smaller than 20 feet have level flotation.
Decks are joined to hulls in a shoebox configuration, with the deck fitting over a flange on the hull. Stainless steel screws, stainless steel blindside fasteners, an adhesive sealer and a 3M sealant are used to bond the two pieces, then the rubrail is screwed into place over the joint.
