2014 Everglades 243 center console powerboat for fishing

You want to really get to know a boat, like the Everglades 243 CC? There's no substitute for a day of fishing. And when we fished from a 243, we decided to shoot a First Look Video. We were that impressed. Sure, the boat has gobs of built-in features, like aft jump seats, a livewell, multiple fishboxes, and a forward cooler seat.

But what really grabbed us was the pipework. Everglades uses the stuff you expect to see on a 40-footer, and it's not just pretty, it's also rock solid. Jump aboard for this quick look at the Everglades 243.

See how it was fishing on the Everglades 243 first-hand, by watching Got Bait? The Hunt for Flounder.
