So this is what I said about the Whaler 370 Outrage:
“Six people onboard, two- to four-foot seas outside the inlet, three- to five-footers in the Gulf Stream, an increasing 15- to 20-mph wind and a 60-mile run to the fishing grounds. These numbers might lead some to suggest recalculating at the nearest dockside restaurant. But we threw a new number into the equation that made it easier to point the bow offshore: 370. As i
n the new 370 Outrage, the largest boat Boston Whaler has built to date.
There’s a trend among many builders to offer large center-console boats powered by multiple outboards because of the design’s versatility, the better power-to-weight ratio, and the comparative ease of outboard maintenance. With the 370 Outrage, at 37 feet, 6 inches and at a base price of $384,000, Whaler is making a loud entrance to the party. But the question is, by going so big, did it try to do too much? That’s the type of inquiry that can only be answered 60 miles offshore with a full trolling spread.”
