Experience your next obsession...

The 253cc. This completely redesigned hybrid bay/offshore boat includes the best features of Everglades’ favorites, the 243cc and the 273cc, with some additional attributes to boast about.

Pack your bags -- the 253cc is equipped with two storage holders under the helm seat to easily load and unload your gear, in addition to the massive built-in 87qt cooler/dry storage beneath the forward console seat. There's gear storage for any water activity you can dream up. The low-profile, powder-coated bow rails and pop-up cleats combine with the 91-square-foot cockpit to give you all the space and freedom to move around that you need. The under gunwale port and starboard rod storage and dry storage, lockable rod storage with cushioned protection under the forward bow seating, 26-gallon livewell, and 69-gallon in-floor insulated fishbox makes the 253cc ready to fish in any conditions.

Two incredible foldaway stern seats are located on either side of insulated storage. When not in use, fold the seatbacks down to use the huge aft casting deck. Forward-facing bowseats have detachable backrests for the most comfortable ride underway. A perfect marriage of comfort and functionality, the elegant 253cc is sure to impress.
