Default 2002 Grady White 228 Garage Kept

2002 Grady White 228 Seafarer, 200 Yamaha HPDI, Load Rite trailer. This boat is exceptionally clean, kept year round in climate controlled garage. Previous owner kept the boat in the water one season which is why the bottom is painted. I re-painted for cosmetic reasons in 2012. Located in Northern VA.

Price: $32500

Bimini with three sided enclosure, like new condition
Garmin 530 color chart plotter/sounder with mid atlantic chip
VHF
Sony stereo with iPod dock and JL Audio speakers
Porta potty
Full custom cover

Yamaha HPDI has 530 hours on it. Yama lube, ring free always used. 4000 rpm's= 30mph cruise at about 3.5mpg. The 200 HPDI is bullet proof, please don't confuse this motor with the 250 HPDI which has problems.

Boat has no corrosion or gel oxidation. It is in better shape than many newer boats. I wax it with Meguiars Flagship at least once a year.

I looked for a long time for one with a hard top and no bottom paint, this is what I ended up buying. Lots of 226 Grady's out there with those two options but not many 228's. I basically chose the bracket/closed transom and pulpit over a hardtop! You can still buy the hard top for this boat from Grady. The like new condition also played a huge role in my decision.

What are the issues with the HPDI 250s? Is it all or specific years?

All years of HPDI 250's had issues from what I understand. However, all years of the 200 are extremely reliable. This is my understanding, subject to correction.

I have seen this boat. I can't imagine there being a cleaner or better maintained Grady out there.

I have reduced the price to $29500. Not sure how to re-post this with a new price. If your searching in this price range she is worth a look, exceptionally clean, like new.
