Named the Best Fishing Boat under 30′ by AIM Marine Group, the 255cc offers all the features of the acclaimed 5 Series in a compact, powerful package. Of course it has all the fishing amenities you’ve come to expect from Everglades, like spacious fish boxes fore and aft, 2 tackle lockers, a 34-gallon circulating livewell, a 20-gallon freshwater wash down, and plenty of rod holders.
With her deep-V, Dougherty-designed hull, the 255cc is a solid offshore boat that handles rough seas better than many bigger boats.
5 Series signature features include Everglades’ patented hydraulic sliding windshield, an oversized dash for electronics, a combination helm seat/leaning post, plush forward console seating, an ergonomically designed workstation, and a 65-quart, sliding Yeti cooler. Additional standard details include 8″ stainless steel pull-up cleats, powder-coated toe rails, and a lockable transom gate with freeing port. The electrically actuated aft seat/hatch provides easy bilge access, a welcome addition on a boat this size.
Whether you’re fishing offshore or cruising inland waterways, the 255cc is all the boat you’ll ever need. Until, of course, you want a bigger one.
