High-Performance Rides on Superior Boat Building

Everglades 315 CC running

A well-designed hull bottom, twin 400-hp V10 Mercury outboards and expert, sea-proven craftsmanship are just the beginning of what awaits aboard the Everglades 315 CC.

Mission Statement

Respected for its hull ride across the model lineup and its commitment to quality boat building, Everglades has put everything it is known for into the 315CC.

Boat Inspection

Quality construction and attention to detail are the cornerstones at Everglades and is the place where it all begins. Since 1999, when iconic founder Bob Dougherty improved on the foam-filled hull process by molding the structural foam separately, and then building it into the hull, his Rapid Molded Core Assembly Process, RAMCAP as it is commonly referred to, revolutionized the way boats are built. And at Everglades, nothing has changed and has only improved with technology.

Everglades 315 CC layout

The layout aboard shows off Everglades’ use of space by providing plenty of fishing room for anglers and sufficient seating when family and friends are aboard for a day of coastal cruising.


The bow area features lounges, with backrests, to either side. A table can be placed between them for various dining and entertaining opportunities and when the cushions are properly stowed, and the table is lowered, the entire area becomes a casting platform. An 80-gallon fish box, with a macerator, is located in the deck and is easily accessed thanks to a locking hatch between the lounges. Just forward of the console are a pair of seats with large storage compartments beneath.

Large storage bins are located under the lounges. Fully forward, in the anchor locker, is the electric windlass, anchor, line, and ten feet of ¼” chain.

Everglades 315 CC bow

The bow becomes a pleasant place to relax while on the hook and with the table is secured on its custom bracket.

The bow's 80-gallon fish box, with macerator, will come in handy when the fishing is hot and heavy.

Everglades 315 CC bow is a comfortable place for family and friends

While it easily converts to a serious fishing area, the bow is also a comfortable place for family and friends on a day out on the water. A large utility compartment under the twin seats forward of the console easily stows the table, fenders, and other gear.

Helm and Console

To quote Shakespeare, whom, with a great degree of certainty, was not a boater when he penned, “…a rose by any other name is still a rose…”, still, this sentiment could very well be applied to describe the Everglades 315 Center Console when compared to others. To further the point, there’s the company’s artistic and almost poetic approach to its helm area as well.

Everglades 315 CC helm

Well balanced, with all switches and controls within easy reach, the helm is not only designed for fishing action and proper use while underway, but is eye-catching as well.

The center of attraction at the operations console is a pair of 22-inch touchscreens on the boat we inspected where every system aboard is monitored and controlled from here. Just to the right of the wheel is the joystick and control for the optional Seakeeper gyro. Below them are the throttle levers. The eight-button pad to the left of the wheel offers redundant controls with the screen for instance activation. Two induction recharging pads are located here and the drains on top of the helm lead overboard and not into the bilges. 

Everglades’ patented forward glass window is controlled electrically and lowers to allow better air flow at the push of a button, and as well, closes the same way. The standard bench seat can be replaced with the optional Release upgrade featuring a pair of teak, ladder-back bolster seats with fore and aft sliders. For those needing a few more inches while driving in the standing position, the Everglades 315 comes with a fold-down platform for better visibility forward. The fiberglass hardtop features a power-coated frame, handholds, four overhead LED lights, four spreader lights, an electronics access hatch, and six rod holders.

The pair of optional Release seats add an elegant touch to the helm area.

The console houses the head compartment and features sink, toilet, teak head cover, holding tank, macerator, lighting, in floor storage with hatch, flooring, retaining rail, teak storage shelf, opening portlight, and a lockable door.

Bright and airy, with an opening port light, the console’s head compartment offers great headroom as well measuring 6’2”. Note the four rod holders in the deck for stand-up rod storage.

Cockpit, Transom, and Fishing Amenities

When she switches over to fishing action mode, the Everglades 315 is all business and the cockpit layout is where it all happens. With fold-up transom seating freeing up space aft, and the optional twin mezzanine seats in the bolster position, there is plenty of room for moving around while fighting big fish.

For additional room, the standard rigging station takes the place of the mezzanine seats. In the deck are a pair of large insulated, 40 gallon fish boxes and access to the bilge hatch where a well-designed and accessible space awaits.

The cockpit's expandable space is increased by the fold-up seats aft and the optional mezzanine seats in the bolster position. A pair of 40-gallon, in-deck insulated fish boxes are located to either side with macerator pumps which discharge overboard.

The large, easily accessible bilge hatch allows access to ball valves, sea cocks, the pair of bilge pumps, batteries, highwater alarm, and the optional Seakeeper2 gyro.

Along the transom, and to either side, are 25-gallon livewells and there is the requisite under gunwale rod storage in addition to four additional storage compartments, each in its own locking section, in the gunwales as well.

The under gunwale rod storage to port and starboard also features a protective pad and toe rail.

The 25-gallon transom livewells feature blue liners, rounded corners, recirculating pumps, and tight sealing clear lids.

Everglades 315 CC bait prep tray

Everglades also provides this handy bait prep tray which securely fits along the transom in any of the rod holders.

Everglades 315 CC aft starboard side door

The aft starboard side door features robust construction, sturdy stainless hinges and hardware, and a fold-up top which when deployed offers a pair of drink holders. In addition, the door recesses flush into the bulkhead. It’s big enough for a big fish to be boated. Note the hinge below for the boarding ladder to be placed for getting back aboard after water sports activities.

Construction and Hull

While she presents a dynamic exterior and is equipped with all the right stuff for a wide variety of uses while out on the water, the foundation of the Everglades 315 Center Console’s success is the design and engineering that went into her hull shape. From its early beginnings, the company has relied on its innovative and visionary spirit to propel it to the forefront of boat building technology and to that end, her ground breaking and patented RAMCAP® process, enabling pre-molded, high density foam to be precisely fit between the hull and liner, making her virtually unsinkable.

The enclosed and fully sealed hull is a result of the patented RAMCAP ® process.

The result of all this technology is a variable deadrise hull shape. Featuring a high deadrise at the bow, which then transitions to a 25-degree deadrise at the transom, resulting in a more comfortable ride when running in adverse sea conditions and at speed. 


The 315 is a premium-quality and premium-priced center console, and probably will not appeal to the average Joe because of the price tag.  But, she wasn't built for the average Joe. Doing virtually everything right, which is what Everglades not only tries to do but accomplishes, costs money. The company’s goal is not to produce the most center consoles but to build the best. People who want the best, and can afford it, should seriously consider this boat, which is an excellent choice in our opinion.

The deep-V bottom of the Everglades 315 is one of the deepest in class at 15 degrees.

Remember, life is better on a boat!
