Default Looking for Everglades 243cc

Im in the market now for a good deal on an Everglades 243 cc. Must have a trailer. I'm more interested in the 250-300hp motor, but would be willing to look at boats with 225hp, and re-power. Pm me if you have something you want to move. Thanks!

Price and pics just out of curiosity. We looked at these hard recently but didn't want a boat note. I still wouldn't mind owning one if the right deal came up some day.

There is one in Jacksonville for sale, 2007 for $38900. I looked at it, not taken care of real good but decent price.

Where are you located? I have a 2005 243 in Pompano Beach with a 2010 Yamaha 250. It's not on the market but I have been tossing around the idea of moving up to something else. Feel free to PM me and I'm sure we can figure out if there is any chance at mutual interest.

The EG 24 is a great boat. But it's small for 24 foot. The narrower beam allows for a good ride.

My local dealer sales EG, Robalo and Sea Hunt. From top of gunwale to the other side the EG is 10 inches narrower. That's a lot of difference. You notice in the cockpit space. The side door on the console isn't big enough for an adult to get in the unless you slide in there. It's very tight compared to a lot of other bayboats in this size range.

Not knocking the boat it's just visibly smaller. The quality is great.

Hmm. I've never heard anyone refer to the EG 243 as a small 24 foot or very tight.

I don't get the 10 inch narrower measurement- the beam difference between a BX 24/ BX 25 and the EG 243 is 4 inches- Where is the measurement from?

I've owned and fished all kinds of boats, one of the best things about my 243 is the space, I just don't agree with the small 24. The ride is of course badass and the build quality is second to none.

I measured with a tape measure. From gunwale to gunwale from the top edge where your leg hits is 10 inches difference. Both the robalo and EG has a 10 inch wide actual gunwale. The SH was 8. The beam listed on each boat is EG 8 foot 2, SH 8 foot 6 and robalo 9 foot. The actual toe space under the gunwale was 81 EG , SH 87 and Robalo 90 inches. Because all 3 boats have a 3 piece design under the gunwale. Almost every 24 foot boat I can think of has an 8 foot 6 beam. Most 22 footers do also.

The console doesn't have a step down in the EG. You have to sit to fit in there. Very little room.

Again I'm not knocking the boat I'm
Just stating actual facts and measurements. With its narrower beam and more deadrise it should ride better than the SH I had. But you lose space.

I can't think of a 24 hybrid bayboat that is smaller than the EG 24. If you can please let me know. It's a very short list if you can find any.

Everybody is different. I like the most storage and room I can get for the money.

Edge of each gunwale from side to side. The numbers I posted show the difference.

If the SH and Robalo didn't have the 3 piece type gunwale then the difference would be much closer. But they have the same as EG.

My BX 24 had the 2 piece gunwale. The new BX 25 has the 3 piece. Adds over 6 inches of toe space. It's very noticeable just looking at it.

As people have said before numbers on websites are just numbers. When you measure stuff with a tape measure then you get actual measurements.

Understood. I'll take ride and build all day over a few inches of toe space.

10 inches of space in a 24 foot boat is a lot. That's not toe space that's actual leg room space. When you can see the difference with your own eyes then it's noticeable.

These boat will outlast us riding in them. The build quality now in boats is much closer than years past. Materials are better and quality is better.
