2007 Everglades 240CC
This is the only Yamaha 350hp powered Everglades 240 on the market. Recent detail and exterior hull side professional repainted make this boat one of the cleanest boat of this caliber on the market.
This 24-footer comes with a wealth of standard features that company founders Bob and Stephen Dougherty pioneered, from a sliding front windshield, to deluxe T-tops with powder-coated frames and fiberglass hardtops that match the color of the boat, all the way down to the very construction of the hull.
These items make the Everglades line stand out from the rest of the fleet in both appearance and overall quality, and when you take a close look at one, you realize you're looking at something truly different.
Among the wow factor items is the power windshield. Open it when the weather is hot and calm or close it when it's cold and snotty. Another rare piece of standard equipment is the T-top, a massive powder-coated, custom-built unit that looks as if it could work as a rollbar. You can also get the standard fiberglass hardtop in gel coat colors to match the hull. There's a porcelain head inside the console, an Ultra-Cool fiberglass cooler with upholstered top that serves as a seat in front of the console, and an Autoanchor windlass system on the bow.
The boat is fully loaded for fishing, including space to store 22 rods. The 45-gallon livewell is built into the back of the leaning post and features a magnetic latch to hold up the lid while you're dipping out pinfish-why doesn't every builder add one of these? All compartments have a slick gel coat finish, including the hatch lids, and all are padded to prevent rattling and keep out rain. Larger compartments also boast stainless-steel gas rams to help boost the lid.
With its broad beam and ramcap construction process, which ensures that every inch of space belowdecks is filled with closed-cell foam, it's no surprise that the 240 weighs two tons. The result? You feel total confidence when you jump off a wave or slam through an inlet.
