One of the most successful boatbuilding companies in the world, Grady-White Boats has a legendary reputation for designing and producing outstanding fiberglass boats. Since 1959, Grady-Whites have been built in Greenville, NC. And since purchasing the company in 1968, owner and CEO Eddie Smith steadily has done what he does best: inspire his crew to work hard to provide customers the best quality, reliability, safety, performance and long lasting value. In large part Grady-White's success is due to developing close relationships with its customers and dealerships, asking questions of and carefully listening to boat owners, and incorporating features they've requested to create fun products that make many happy memories. The quest for being "the ultimate in boating satisfaction" is the basis for the management style promoted by current company president, Kris Carroll.
