Online Field Report: Everglades 320cc

Exclusive FS photos from the Miami International Boat Show.


 















Everglades boats, out of Edgewater, Florida, released its latest 320cc model at the 2008 Miami International Boat Show. Brand new for 2008, the 320cc is the big brother in their family of boats, only behind a couple of parental 35-footers.

The 32-footer's 131-square-foot cockpit area has space for fishermen; two fish boxes (310-quart aft and 247-quart starboard) facilitate the catch; and two lockers make room for tackle bags and rods. The bow seating area features an electric “filler” table that converts to a padded sun lounge when in the down position. Standard anchor windlass allows for faster retrieval of anchor drops compared to manual setups.

Highlights of the console include a security shield for on-board electronics, a built-in head with pump-out, and a glass windshield with wiper and washer. Hardtop includes red and white LED lights, spreader lights, speakers, electronics box and four rod holders. Behind two cockpit bolster seats there's an 8-drawer tackle station which includes stainless steel sink and trash compartment. All Everglades boats are backed by a manufacturer 10-year hull warranty.
