General Details

This 1997 Grady-White 268 Islander, located inStratford,CT, is powered by a 250 hp Yamaha OX66 Fuel Injected Saltwater Series II engine. The boat and engine have been meticulously maintained, evident from the moment you step aboard.

 The Grady-White Islander 268 is a big, trailerable, foam-filled, self-bailing bruiser with all the amenities of a cruiser for comfortable weekend excursions. With a deep cockpit, a full transom and non-skid walkaround, safety is assured. Hardcore offshore anglers will appreciate features like horizontal rod racks and cockpit toe rails, oversized through-bolted hardware and loads of tackle storage. Like most Grady-Whites, the 268 is a three-piece boat consisting of a foam-filled hull, an inner liner fiberglassed to the tops of the stringer system, and a deck which is through-bolted to the inner liner.

The helm area has a helm seat and a lockable electronics box. Portside there's a bench which converts to a single forward-facing seat for rough water passages. Under both the bench and helm seats are large and lockable dry storage areas. In the 57-square-foot aft cockpit, there are more than 300 quarts of insulated boxes with overboard drains. The starboard box has a 186-quart capacity and the portside box is divided into a smaller one for drinks and a larger one for the catch. Custom cushions add extra seating on top of the raised fish boxes. In the stern area, there is a molded-in bench seat, a drop-in box. and a transom door that leads to the swim platform. The swim platform has a standard stainless steel ladder molded flush with the platform surface when folded away.

The cabin has a forward V-berth, a head enclosure and a full galley complete with butane stove and refrigerator. A table between the two berths lowers to form a double berth and stows conveniently in a special compartment in the underberth storage area. A pressurized water system with sinks at the galley and in the head has a capacity of 32 gallons.

"Czech Mate" is a clean, versatile boat that's equally at home in your favorite fishing grounds, ovenighting in a quiet cove, or with a cockpit full of friends and family for a day of fun on the water.
