Grady-White Express 370 (2017-)

3 x 300-hp Yamaha 4.2L V6

Brief Summary

The Grady-White Express 370 has two berths, stocked galley, full head with walk-in shower, as well as dining space, storage, air conditioning, and an optional enclosed three-sided pilothouse. She's fully equipped for fishing, including a large, refrigerated fishbox on the transom and a rigging station and aerated well behind the console seating. An electric grill is included in the cockpit. We like express boats like this one because of their closed bow and pilothouse, which shed green water when things get snotty offshore.

Captain's Report


Grady-White Express 370 running

The Grady-White Express 370 has an LOA of 36’7” (11.15 m), a beam of 13’2” (4.01 m) and can sleep as many as six.

The Grady-White Express 370 is an outboard-powered 36’7” (11.15 m) offshore fishing boat with an impressive below deck space. The Express 370 is versatile, able to cater to the serious fishing expedition as well as a family-and-friends cruising expedition. The 370 Express has amenities and quality of materials reminiscent of a custom yacht, as well as Grady-White’s proven and tested SeaV2 hull—fully luxury and fully family-friendly cruiser.

In many ways, the Express 370 is the ideal boat for those looking to graduate to a larger, more versatile vessel, as well as those looking to downsize without sacrificing some core amenities. In this way, the boat represents a capable middle ground, able in design to satisfy a number of needs.

Major Features

SeaV2 Hull Design. Simply put, this design is an industry leader. The SeaV2 hull design is one of the main contributing factors to Grady-White’s countless awards, including ranking #1 for customer satisfaction in all of JD Power & Associates eight marine studies. The SeaV2 is a “continuously variable vee” hull that provides a softer, more stable ride. The unique hull form and variable deadrise have tremendous righting force, giving the boat superior tracking in quartering or following seas.

Full Below-Deck Space. The Express 370 has two berths, stocked galley, full head with walk-in shower, as well as dining space, storage, air conditioning, and entertainment platforms—all standard.

Fishing Amenities Galore. Along the transom is the 370’s 291-qt. (275.4 l) aft refrigerator/freezer fish box with digitally controlled thermostat. Behind the helm seat is a full column distribution 48-qt. (45.4l) livewell with an accessory switch panel above. The 3 rockers switches control the livewell, raw water washdown, and spreader lights (likely the three components you’ll need quick access to while fishing).

Features Inspection


Grady-White Express 370 swim platform

The aft swim platform, with the reboarding ladder folded up in its storage space.

The Express 370 comes standard with triple 300 Yamaha four-strokes and offers an option of triple 350s. A telescoping reboarding ladder is molded into deck space and is to the starboard side, right in line with the transom walk-through door also to starboard. The inside edge of the solid transom door has a plush bolster, which extends from the bolster on the gunwales in the cockpit. The robust door is made of fiberglass and has a stainless steel latch just under the bolster.

Grady-White Express 370 fish box

The aft fishbox, situated along the transom. Note the fold-down transom seat just to the right of the frame.

Along the transom is the Express 370’s aft fishbox. It is a refrigerator/ freezer fish box that has a digitally controlled thermostat, lights, and drains overboard. On the starboard side of the transom is a freshwater shower with a hot/cold temperature control knob and a stainless steel cupholder. Dockside power access is below on the transom bulkhead.

On the portside end of the transom is a fixed cutting board above removable storage bin with that reveals the two batteries banks with four batteries total.


Grady-White Express 370 aft seat

The aft transom seat on the Express 370, which can fold down or up and out of the way.

The cockpit is a largely open space with one non-intrusive seating bench (that can be folded up and out of the way), and nothing but small fishing-focused amenities to come between a guest and the hunt. Access to the seacock levers and the standard 8 kW generator are found aft and below the bench. To port and starboard on the aft end of the cockpit are dedicated rod storage racks, three to a side, with bolsters above and toe rails below. Along the top of the gunwales are stainless steel rod holders, two to each side.

A view of the Express 370’s rod storage, the toe rails at the bottom, and the cockpit bolsters just at the top.

As mentioned, there is seating -- a bench perfect for a space intended for fishing. The bench easily folds down when needed, and out of the way when everyone’s on their toes.

Grady-White Express 370 rigging station

The rigging station to starboard in the Express 370’s cockpit. Note the sink, livewell, and latched storage below.

The decks are non-skid surface, with the remainder of the surfaces molded-in fiberglass. To starboard forward the rod storage is a rigging station, comfortably removed from the main fishing “pit” in the Express 370, but easy to reach when needed. The rigging station has a freshwater sink with pullout faucet and 48 gallon (181.7 L) livewell under latched lids. Beneath the insulted boxes are two hinged storage compartments one with four removable tackle trays and the other a fishing tools holder (knife, pliers, etc.) both are lockable. The livewell has a full column distribution inlet, a light, and (like all other insulated boxes on this Grady-White) an overboard drain.

Grady-White Express 370 grill

The grill station on the Grady-White Express 370 is to port on the forward end of the cockpit, just near the steps up to the helm.

To port is a standard 1300 W grill, also under a latched lid and above further storage behind a latched door on the bulkhead.

Between these two port and starboard stations are molded-in fiberglass steps up to the helm section under the hardtop. To the outside edge of the port and starboard stations are two additional small steps, which give access to the side decks leading to the bow.


Grady-White Express 370 helm seat

A look at the Deluxe platinum helm seat on the Express 370, which can adjust horizontally and vertically and up and down with armrests and bolsters.

Cockpit/ Helm Divide Design. The Express 370 has an interesting design moving from the cockpit to the helm—the cockpit acts primarily as a fishing space, with a spare, open design surrounded by fishing amenities. Moving forward toward the helm is up two fiberglass steps, under the boat’s standard hardtop.

Here the helm and dash sit in the center, with seating both to port and starboard. This space is notably more focused on relaxation and entertainment, in contrast to the aft part of the cockpit’s spartan fishing-friendly environment.

To port is lounge seating—high quality upholstery, forward-facing with storage underneath. The backrest wraps around to the bulkhead for greater range of movement and comfort. Cup holders are in the bulkhead nook, just above a small netted storage cubby.

Grady-White Express 370 seat positions

The versatile starboard helm seating, with its many configurations seen here.

To starboard is a versatile seating space, with a double-wide forward facing bench seat facing an aft-facing single seat. In between, on the bulkhead, is a fold-away table with cup holders molded-in that can lower and support a filler cushion that can turn the seating into a U-shaped lounge. More storage comes via drawers below the forward-facing seat.

The Helm. The helm seat is Deluxe Platinum, with flip-up bolster, adjustable arm rests, and a horizontally and vertically adjustable stainless steel pedestal. The steering wheel on the Express 370 is heavy-duty 316 grade stainless steel, and sits on the front panel of the dash, just to port of the push button ignition and electronic throttle controls.

The dash on the Express 370. Note the stainless steel steering wheel, and simple, straightforward design.

The dash has a flat panel with the rocker switches and stainless steel cupholder, just ahead of the electromechanically operated electronics enclosure, which is a panel hidden behind the dash until needed.

Grady-White includes the Yamaha Helm Master as standard on the Express 370.

Grady-White Express 370 control system

The Grady-White “Captain Grady” remote systems monitor/ control comes standard with the Express 370.

Captain Grady. One of Grady-White’s big innovations is their Captain Grady system, which works on either an iPad or iPhone as an app, as well as provide operations guides, FAQs, and troubleshooting.

The helm has a fiberglass footrest below the dash, with a lid on the top that lifts to reveal further storage. Forward on the dash on the starboard side is a nice chart storage bin, with a lucite lid on hinges.


The Grady-White AV2 style hardtop comes standard on the Express 370. The AV2 hardtop comes as a painted aluminum frame with electronically sliding sunroof with screen and shade, storage net, LED spreader lights, overhead tri-colored (red, white and blue) LED recessed lights, storage and first aid kit compartments, four side mounted rode holders, outrigger plates, SureShade electrically retractable shade with Sunbrella canvas, Clear2Sea side curtains and drop shades.

Secluded Berth. Immediately starboard of the access steps and moving aft is the first of the 370’s two berths. Accessed from a step-down and duck, it is nestled with low overhead away from the “action” in the lower deck. It has a mirror on the aft end, rod storage overhead, and storage cubbies in the bulkheads. The berth itself takes up the entire space.

Grady-White Express 370 head

The head on the Express 370. Note the shower stall, the mirrored storage, and the faucet and sink.

Dining Section. Back outside the head, the starboard side of the lower deck is occupied by a large dining section. The premium vinyl-upholstered U-shaped seating space wraps around a high-gloss cherry wood table with an adjustable stainless steel pedestal. Just above the dining section are further wood cabinets in the same style as the galley on the port side—sliding wood doors with stainless steel handles.

The Grady-White Express 370 has a LOA of 36’7” (11.15 m), a beam of 13’2” (4.01 m) and a draft of 29” (73.7 cm). With a dry weight of 14,919 lbs. (6,767 kg), 43% fuel and test power, we had an estimated test weight of 17,918 lbs. (8,127 kg).

With the triple Yamaha 4.2L V6 300-hp engines running at 5800 rpm, we reached our top speed of 42 knots. Best cruise was measured at 3500 rpm and 22.8 knots. It was at that speed that the 25.9-gph fuel burn translated into .9 nmpg and a range of 273.3 nm. All while still holding back a 10% reserve of the vessels total fuel capacity.

The fishing spaces are nicely thought-out, with an array of amenities toward that activity close at hand. The luxury elements include an impressive array of features throughout the boat.
