Everglades Boats Announces Newest Model - 253cc

Everglades has announced their newest model - the 253cc - to be unveiled to the public at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) on November 3rd.

Edgewater, FL – Another masterfully built hybrid bay/offshore center console boat by Everglades, the 253cc was designed with the Everglades 243cc and the 273cc’s best features in mind. A beautiful union of elegance, functionality, and fishability, this midsize vessel is the perfect boat for shallow and deep water fishing alike.

The massive 91-square-foot cockpit includes tons of storage and design features to keep passengers (and their gear) comfortable. The 253ccboasts multipurpose seating with two aft fold-down seats that convert to a non-skid casting platform and lockable rod storage with cushioned protection located under the forward bow seating. More rod and dry storage can be found under the port and starboard gunwales. There’s a 69-gallon in-floor insulated fishbox and 26-gallon livewell as well.

Perhaps one of the most unique features of this model are the twin Yeti Hopper 20 holders – perfect for easy loading and unloading of coolers for drinks and ice. These are in addition to the massive built-in 87-quart insulated EverCooler located under the forward console seat.

Lastly, passengers can enjoy the convenience of a step-down head and improved dash storage (including charging ports and a watertight glovebox). The easily recognized Everglades hull will give you the smooth ride you expect from the brand, which continues to set the standard for the safest, most innovative boats on the market today.

Their third unveiling in three years, the Everglades 253cc will be located at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show at booth 2033A & 2034, November 3-7.
