Grady-White SeaV2 Hull Design
This hull design has no two places on the keel where the deadrise is the same. The vee continuously sharpens from the transom to the bow stem. A SeaV2 hull is designed with 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom and will have around 30 degrees amidships - more than even the most radical older deep vee designs. The deeper vee forward means a softer ride at sea. Less vee at the transom coupled with wide chines provide stability at rest and when trolling.
SeaV2 Hulls Track as if on RailsThe series of wedges formed by a SeaV2 hull have tremendous righting force giving incredible tracking, even in quartering seas and especially in following seas. Unlike competitive products, there are no rounded shapes that "know" no upright position to behave like a ball in water.
Strakes and Chines Knock Down SprayCheck the spray coming off a SeaV2 hull. You can actually see three bow wakes in smooth water. That's the individual deflectors working. This is the reason SeaV2 hulls are drier running than boats with rounded sections that blow spray past the strakes and chines and into the cockpit.
Deep Vee Ride with Modified Vee EfficiencyUnlike other deep vee hulls, SeaV2 hulls deliver a soft ride without fuel efficiency loss. A SeaV2 hull slices through seas effortlessly with a sharp point of entry, and the varying deadrise builds buoyancy that lifts the boat as it proceeds through waves. Result: better performance. SeaV2 hulls are designed exclusively for Grady-White by C. Raymond Hunt Associates, the originators of the modified vee.
