Yes this is an outboard boat, but no one’s going to argue that the Everglades 435cc doesn’t make the grade as a serious big-boat sport-fishing machine. With options for an upper station, triple or quad Yamaha F425 outboard that net a cruise in the upper 30s to mid 40s, and top ends of 53.5 and 59.5 mph, respectively, the 435cc is a serious contender by any measure.

- “Armed to the teeth” is probably the best way to describe the standard-issue 435cc; few builders include such goodies as standard outriggers or gyro-stabilization, and even fewer start you out with 28 stock rod holders.
- Unlike many other big boat designs, you get the 360-degree fish-ability of a center console including a fishable bow cockpit.
- Take a close look at the tackle stowage on this boat; if there aren’t enough boxes, drawers, and dedicated spots and slots for all your gear you probably should be opening your own tackle shop.
