“When you of­fer pack­ages, you can gen­er­ally save cus­tomers hun­dreds of dol­lars,” says Shane Kwa­ter­ski, Ev­er­glades Boats di­rec­tor of dealer de­vel­op­ment. “The items cost more when pur­chased in­di­vid­u­ally rather than to­gether.”

Ev­er­glades’ most pop­u­lar com­bos in­clude the 243cc Fish­ing and the 243cc Up­per-Sta­tion pack­ages. The fish­ing pack­age in­cludes an At­las jack plate, a 10-foot Power-Pole Blade shal­low-wa­ter an­chor, and a Minn Kota trolling mo­tor with iPilot and charger. The Up­per-Sta­tion pack­age comes with a T-top sta­tion, a slid­ing fiber­glass sun­roof/helm seat, four cup hold­ers, a stereo re­mote, a footrest, a fiber­glass box for stand­ing, trim-tab in­di­ca­tors and up­per helm space for elec­tron­ics.

The 243cc al­ready comes stan­dard with a fiber­glass hard­top sport­ing an alu­minum powder-coated frame and fea­tur­ing Ev­er­glades’ patented slid­ing wind­shield. Aft, it fea­tures a 36-gal­lon lighted livewell topped by an acrylic lid with fric­tion hinges. The 67-gal­lon fish box lies for­ward; lock­able rod stor­age, un­der-gun­wale mounts and ver­ti­cal flush-mount hold­ers ac­com­mo­date loads of tackle.

Ev­er­glades’ pack­ages are of­fered year-round. “It gives you the op­por­tu­nity to bun­dle deals and build the boat to how you’ll specif­i­cally use it,” Kwa­ter­ski says. “Some pre­fer to cater their boat more to­ward fish­ing, while oth­ers might want it more for cruis­ing pur­poses.”
