EVERGLADES 243CC FISHING
“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.”
