The Florida Everglades, one of the great and wondrous ecosystems in the world, is the “living room” in the home where Harry Spear, a 45 year veteran fisherman, guide, skiff designer and builder, has been in constant pursuit in perfecting his craft. Spear Boatworks’ EVERGLADEZ model was designed to co-exist and interact with minimal impact in such a fragile and beautiful environment.

The EVERGLADEZ model came about after 4 years of research and development with the Glades X. Our goal was to make a skiff that could fish the skinniest water, pole easily and silently, yet cross big bays comfortably with a dry ride.
We achieved all these goals with the EVERGLADEZ when we sharpened the entry and put in a molded spray rail.
We are offering the EVERGLADEZ in both tiller and console models , with or without a tunnel and either a 30hp or 50hp outboard engine.

This skiff is a truly minimalist design. It will fish the skinniest water and still carry a load of three people easily. This skiff is quiet, dry and poles very easily. You can ride it hard and put it away wet and it will still last a lifetime. A great skiff for any place that needs shallow draft and anyone whom likes to keep their cash in their  wallet.

History of Spear Boatworks

Harry and RickRick Ruoff On Harry Spear…

Rarely do you come across a fishing guide that is the real deal- the whole package. Not only must a guide have a extra sense about when and where the fish will be, but he has to understand when they feed and how to approach them. The skiff has become one of the guide’s most important tools. All skiffs are definitely not created equal. Weight and performance are only part of the package. Subtleties of design do such things as allow for a quick change of direction while poling, and provide a silent approach to the fish. The boat also has to provide a comfortable to ride to the fishing grounds and be economical to run long distances.
