Beaufort, NC – Bluewater Yacht Sales (Bluewater) is excited to announce its appointment as the exclusive Everglades Boats dealer for all of North Carolina and Virginia. This new partnership improves Everglades’ reach in the Mid-Atlantic through a strong dealership presence with 54 years of experience, while affording Bluewater’s sales team greater opportunities to serve boating enthusiasts throughout these markets.
Bob Dougherty, founder of Everglades Boats, is also the innovator behind the Rapid Molded Core Assembly Process, or RAMCAP which was awarded the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s (NMMA) Innovation Award in 1999. The patented RAMCAP technology is the only hull construction process that utilizes a high-density foam core that is pre-molded to fit precisely between an Everglades’ hull and liner. The hull, foam, and liner are then cured into one cohesive and rigid boat, combined with Everglades’ proven hull shape leads to a stable ride, with superior handling and maneuverability.
Over the last two decades, the Everglades product line has grown to include center consoles, cabin models, dual consoles, and bay boats from 23 to 45 feet. Every Everglades model includes many innovative features, including their patented retractable windshield along with superior construction and an unmatched fit and finish–including the yacht-grade interiors that Everglades has become known for.
Since 1968, the founders of Bluewater have worked hand-in-hand with the most respected marine manufacturers and partners to provide exceptional sales and service to friends and customers. With five locations across Virginia and North Carolina, Bluewater is well-poised to grow Everglades’ share in these markets.
Several new models will be arriving at Bluewater’s waterfront sales offices this summer including each Everglades bay boat model: the 243CC, 253CC and 273CC along with the popular 335CC, and more to come. Bluewater Sales Manager, Baxter Lusink states, “We are ecstatic for this new partnership with Everglades Boats! Our company continually seeks the highest standard in customer experience and our sales team is eager to offer this first-class brand to boaters in North Carolina and Virginia.”
Everglades Boats puts each of their new models through plenty of grueling runs in all kinds of weather and sea conditions as part of Everglades’ commitment to safety. This commitment to building the best product and Everglade’s continuous innovation make them an ideal complement to Bluewater’s line-up of world-class boat brands.
