The Everglades 243cc is the industry leader in the bay boat market, and has been since its debut.

Add an optional GPS-enabled trolling motor and you'll never need to anchor again. Optional jackplate and lifting platforms allow you to get into those shallow spots that most boats this size don't dare. By adding the optional, patent-pending upper station to your standard-equipment hardtop you'll spot fish you never even knew were there.

The low-profile, powder-coated bow rails and pop-up cleats combine with the casting platform/bow seating to make cast-netting live bait a breeze! The most comfortable place to sit on any boat while underway is the stern and the 243cc provides two incredible foldaway seats on either side of the livewell. When not in use, fold the seatbacks down to use the huge aft casting deck. So, whether you want to fish the back country or run 30 miles offshore, the 243cc can satisfy your requirements. This boat is guaranteed to spoil you!
