the newest member of the Cataumet Boats Family!
A life-long waterman, Bob Dougherty grew up in Boston and got his
start building boats in 1960 for Boston Whaler. Throughout this
50+ year career, he has earned the reputation as pioneer and perfectionist,
designing and manufacturing parts for premium brands in the industry.
Constantly striving to build a better boat, Bob eventually decided
to create a brand of his own. He founded Everglades boats with his
son Stephen, and ever since, the Dougherty name has been synonymous
with luxury family fishing boats.
Through their patented manufacturing process, RAMCAP (Rapid Molded
Core Assembly Process) the Doughertys have created boats that are
virtually unsinkable, a claim that is unsurpassed in the boating
industry. The Dougherty family's passion for building the finest
boats on the water has garnered them three National Marine Manufacturers
(NMMA) Innovation awards, and Everglades boats is widely recognized
by the boating industry as the top in their class.
