Quality is no coincidence
The Dougherty family has spent a lifetime designing, building, running, and enjoying unsinkable offshore boats.
We know the potential of extreme conditions you may encounter on the open ocean. That’s why we create boats of the highest possible quality, and we employ a team of craftsmen and women who consider their profession an art. Everglades bears a global reputation for extreme innovation and unsurpassed safety. Committing to intelligent design and quality allows Everglades to continue to lead the way.
Every industry has them, the uniquely gifted icons at the forefront of innovation. In the marine industry that icon is Bob Doughterty. In 1960, he joined Boston Whaler where he was key in developing the unsinkable hull. During his 30-year tenure he perfected the process, introduced the first V-bottom Whaler, and became Senior Vice President of Product Development and Engineering.
