I did post this in the "Boating" forum but also wanted to see if anyone here in my home waters has any insight in real world use with what we deal with in NE Florida.
It is about time for a repower or possible move up from my 05
Everglades 290 w/twin 250 Verados. Other than the age of the engines, I
really like everything about my boat. The fishing features and ride are
great for me while the family likes the creature comforts, safety and
comfortable seating - a coffin box just doesn't fill the need when doing
anything other than fishing. The unsinkable hull also provides a level
of comfort when running 40-60M out to get to the ledge in NE Florida.
far as the upgrade, I've started looking at used (2016-2019) Everglades
325/355 and had someone offer up similar year Boston Whaler 320-370.
Not interested in Yamaha 350 so the Everglades will be twin/trip Yamaha
300s and any Whaler would be the same configuration in 300-350 Verados.
Does anyone have experience on either of these boats and engine
combinations? Fishability, performance, durability etc? Any insight
would be greatly appreciated.
Yes, it is more than I want to spend on a boat but the bride is actually pushing this so who am I to argue?
