Everglades Boats

Bob and Stephen Dougherty founded Everglades Boats with the mission of building the finest family fishing boats on the water. With the invention of the RAMCAP® process in 1999, they revolutionized the boat building industry. Their award-winning designs have won them an unparalleled reputation for their innovation and meticulous craftsmanship.

Bob Dougherty and his family have spent a lifetime on the water, and Everglades by Dougherty is the culmination of that experience. After 50 years perfecting their craft, the result is the Everglades line of luxury family fishing boats. Renowned for their unsinkable, patented RAMCAP® construction, innovative features, and understated luxury, Everglades has won numerous awards and an unparalleled reputation in the industry for their superior craftsmanship and attention to detail. It is the uncompromising quality of Everglades by Dougherty that distinguishes their boats from all others.

Today the Dougherty family builds luxury family fishing boats from 21 to 35 feet and continues to win awards for their innovative designs.

Avalon Pontoons and Everglades Boats

Avalon Luxury Pontoons has been making pontoon boats since 1972 and is known as the leader in the pontoon industry. Avalon offers a range of style and sizes in pontoon boats, from an entry-level 14’ pontoon to the revolutionary, award-winning Ambassador Deco series that has taken pontoon boating to new heights of design and style. Avalon won the NMMA Award for the best-designed pontoon in 2012 and has been recognized for winning the customer CSI Award the past six years in a row. Everglades Boats patented hull design (RAMCAP) by Bob Dougherty is revolutionary in the industry and the number-one hull of any boat in its class. Bob Dougherty joined Boston Whaler in 1960 and was the Senior VP of product development, where he became the head engineer responsible for developing the unsinkable hull for Boston Whaler. Bob continued his tenure in perfecting his V-hull fill process over the years. Now, with an NMMA Innovation award-winning design created in 1999 that revolutionized the way boats are built, Everglades has proven itself the best boat and hull design in the industry. Over the past decade Everglades had grown to include center consoles, pilot house, and cabin models from 21 feet to the incredible new 42-foot boat in 2015. With over 50 years dedicated to boat building, the Everglades team continues to push the bar by producing the finest fishing boats the industry has to offer. Newport Pontoons continues these traditions of excellence by offering the best pontoon boats and off shore fishing boats available.
