Everglades Yachts History
Fisherman’s dream. A real fishing machine. Luxury water beast. Unsinkable. However you describe them, boats built by Everglades Yachts top the got-to-have list of anglers everywhere who are into comfort and high-performance offshore – and more leisurely inshore – fishing. Even though Bob Dougherty didn’t found Everglades Yachts until 2001, he’s not new to the industry. He spent 30 years at Boston Whaler, where he helped develop the process of infusing foam into fiberglass hulls.
Nine years after retiring from Boston Whaler, Dougherty tinkered around until he found an even better way to marry hull and foam. Instead of randomly injecting liquid foam into the hull, he created the Rapid Molded Core Assembly Process, or RAMCAP, which won him the Marine Manufacturers Innovation Award in 1999. Two years after that he opened the Everglades Yachts shipyard in Edgewater, Florida. Today, the Everglades model line includes center consoles, bay boats and dual consoles ranging from 23 to 43 feet.
Different by Design
Building a boat around a molded foam structure and then chemically bonding it to the hull and deck was revolutionary and is what makes every Everglades boat for sale so tough and structurally sound. It’s also what gives Everglades boats a reputation for being virtually unsinkable and for delivering such a solid ride. But, the innovation doesn’t stop there.
Everglades boats are engineered for fishing. Here are a dozen reasons why there’s no other boat for sale quite like an Everglades Yacht.
- Adjustable, retractable sliding windshield
- Corrosion-resistant stainless steel components
- Custom helm seating built in-house
- Fore and aft fish boxes (56 to 129 gallons)
- Heavy-duty outrigger hardware for big hauls and tough conditions
- Horizontal rod racks under hardtop for out-of-the-way storage
- Marine certified electromechanical engineers wire and rig boats in-house.
- Pressurized live bait wells with clear acrylic covers
- SeaDek surfaces for no-slip traction
- State-of-the-art digital and radar options
