Everglades Means Luxury

The visual lines and design integrity of each Everglades boat, from the smallest to the largest, are truly distinctive. Everglades is synonymous with Luxury.

Each Everglades boat is built with patented features you simply won’t find on other models. Our innovations are "Intelligent by Design" -- meaning they don’t just work, they work better. The Everglades team continues to lead the industry in standard features, from aesthetics to engineering, producing the finest family fishing boats on the water.

The Everglades Factory

544 Air Park Rd. Edgewater, FL 32132

Everglades Boats is headquartered in Edgewater, Florida, where our plant qualifies as one of the most modern and advanced operations in the industry. The 125,000-square-foot facility boasts the latest technology allowing us to build our unsinkable boats.

This substantial footprint allows Everglades to build the majority of our components in-house, ensuring all parts meet our sky-high quality and construction standards. Our in-house construction begins with all fiberglass parts, the aluminum fabrication of frames and rails, and all wiring harnesses -- built in our state-of-the-art environment by skilled, seasoned craftsman. The most important benefit of manufacturing in-house materials is the ability for us to control our quality. The results are evident.

Everglades Boats Quality Assurance

Bob Dougherty likes to joke that he would be six feet tall if it weren't for all the years of rigorous testing on the water. Though he's not throttling hard into the breakers himself anymore, Bob makes sure the Everglades team puts each new model through plenty of grueling runs in all kinds of weather and sea conditions. It's part of Everglades' commitment to safety.

In addition to water testing, Everglades' Quality Assurance process involves a multi-point inspection that covers every stage of the building process. From lamination to final assembly, highly trained, experienced inspectors review every manufacturing step. Everglades prides itself on using the highest-grade materials and components, and on hiring the highest caliber craftsmen and women.

As Bob Dougherty often says, "Quality is no coincidence."
