Everglades diversifies by forming a new division

EDGEWATER, Fla. – Everglades Boats, a manufacturer of luxury offshore and inshore boats, has formed a commercial and government division within its production facilities located in Edgewater, Fla., it reported earlier this week.

“This is something we have been planning for quite some time,” said Bob Dougherty, Everglades CEO, “But frankly our manufacturing space was monopolized by the incredible retail demand we have had for our products over the past few years. Current market conditions are opening some new avenues for production in the near term that will be critical to our success for years to come.”

Everglades will attend the MACC (Multi-Agency Craft Conference), June 16-18, Norfolk, Va., where it will debut the first Everglades Boat designed specifically for government and military applications, a 35 Pilot House.

Everglades’ Commercial and Government Division will be headed up by industry veteran Mike Collins, who will serve as its director.

“Everglades Commercial and Government Division will take advantage of our modern manufacturing facilities complete with a fabrication/metal shop, engineering team and quality production staff to quickly make an impact in the commercial marketplace,” predicted Everglades President Stephen Dougherty. “We will create the same type of market leading feature and benefit in our commercial products that have made our retail models so popular and we can do it all in house.”
