Sam gershowitz wanted a new tender for his custom Jim Smith 105 sport-fisherman, Marlena, which he keeps in the Caribbean during the winter and Montauk, New York, in the summer. He turned to the newest and biggest-ever [Everglades] , the 435cc, for its 360-degree walk-around fishability and stand-up living amenities within the center console. Thanks to a hull with 25 degrees of deadrise at the transom and quad Yamaha F350s, the boat no doubt delivers a smooth ride in rough water. It also gives the owner near-60-knot top speeds in his search for the next big fish.
ONLY ON THIS BOAT: The bait-prep center, with 10 tackle drawers, is abaft triple helm seats with foldable armrests, and an extended hardtop helps keep everything and everyone in between well shaded.
WHOM IT’S FOR: Serious, well-heeled anglers who can afford the kind of quality and safety for which Everglades is known.
PICTURE THIS: You and your friends have been chasing tuna since dawn. You have a good day’s catch on ice in the 225-gallon fish hold under the foredeck sole. You’ve secured the rods in the forward lockers, and now it’s time to head home in your stylish Everglades 435cc, satisfied.
