Everglades 243

With fishing standards like a 36-gallon circulating livewell, 75-gallon in-floor fish box, 8 rod holders, and twin tackle lockers, it’s no surprise that Everglades’ 243cc has been a fisherman favorite since its introduction.

The fiberglass hardtop incorporates overhead life jacket storage, blue and white LED lights, spreader lights and built-in speakers.

The ergonomically designed console features Everglades’ patented sliding windshield and a combination helm seat/leaning post with integrated folding footrest.

A new optional 2nd station expands your fishing options with a sliding fiberglass, 3-position sun roof/helm seat. The patented design includes trim tab indicators, space for electronics, and a stereo remote control with 4 mini speakers.

Expand your fishing capabilities even further with options like a Power Pole®, trolling motor, or outriggers. The 243cc is a true fisherman’s boat, with the understated luxury that makes it uniquely Everglades.

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.
