Casting Off - April 2005


Everglades 290

The Everglades 290 comes with a Dougherty-designed Command Console that combines a hardtop with windshield and leaning post command seat with livewell and tackle rigging station. The eight-drawer tackle rigging station comes with a full-size cutting board and fresh- and raw-water sink. The enclosed finished-fiberglass head compartment comes with a China bowl head, macerator discharge, vanity with sink and storage and shower. Aft, the hardtop sports six rod holders along the aft edge, two kingfish rod holders and two mid-mount rodholders for rigging. The bow features a 160-gallon fish box, two large storage compartments and two lockable rod storage compartments for eight rods. For more information contact Everglades at (386) 409-2202, or



Quintrex 210 Legend

Constructed through stretch-forming pressed aluminum bottom sheets, the Quintrex 210 Legend has a concave shape to create a variable dead-rise. The hull's sharp leading entry point carves through swell while the flattened out bottom sheets provide stability when at rest. Manufacturers boast a “massive internal workspace.” The boat features full vinyl flooring for easy maintenance and auto bilge pump for safety. Features include grab rails, molded anchor well, 12V accessory outlet, hydraulic steering, courtesy lights, enclosed side pockets and rodholders. Contact Quintrex at (843) 761-6430, or



Albemarle 410 Express Fisherman

The Albemarle 410 Express Fisherman utilizes the Jackshaft Power System. The engines are fitted in the boat's center of gravity and center of buoyancy, which Albemarle says enhances power, range and fuel economy. Counter-rotating props also add to handling and maneuverability. The system eliminates the obstacle of an engine box. Gasoline or diesel engines can be employed, and the boat holds 500 gallons of fuel. Options include a cockpit freezer, teak rocket launcher, tuna chair with double strike gimbals, an entertainment package and an anchor windless. Contact Albemarle at (252) 482-7600, or



Grady-White Express 360

The Express 360 is the largest Grady-White yet. Outboard power translates to more cabin space due to the absence of an engine room. The helm features tilt steering and electronically programmable throttles with engine-sync mode for the three outboards. The hardtop offers ample rod storage, and there's a complete rigging station in the cockpit. The boat comes with a 48-gallon, lighted livewell with an 1,100 gph pump. The transom has a fold-away bench seat, and a 269-quart aft deck refrigerator/freezer fish box. The transom door opens to a wide platform. Cabin accents are done in teak and holly. Suggested power is triple 250-hp 4-stroke outboards. For more information contact Grady-White at (252) 752-2111, or
