Boston Whaler

Boston Whaler

Few boat manufacturers can accurately say they’re “legendary,” but Boston Whaler can certainly make the claim. Ever since they sawed one of their 13-footers in half and proved the bow and stern would still float when separated, Boston Whaler has been known for building a line of “un-sinkable” boats. But just sawing one in half wasn’t enough: they’ve also blasted them with machine guns, parked dump trucks on their overturned hulls, and driven them up whitewater rapids. Yes, they keep on floating. What’s the secret to becoming a legend? Boston Whaler pours closed-cell foam between an inner and outer layer of fiberglass, until all the voids are filled. When the foam hardens it bonds the fiberglass pieces to each other, creating a one-piece hull structure that’s far tougher than the average pleasure boat. Net result? You can pull the drain plugs, load on weight, cut one in half, whatever you’d like—these boats just won’t quit floating.

Boat Description

To put it succinctly: The 180 Dauntless is a boat that does it all. Sport fishing? Try 10 standard rod holders, a wide aft casting deck, an optional front console livewell, two optional pedestal fishing seats and an optional trolling motor panel. If watersports and thrilling cruises are more your boating speed, the standard 150-hp Mercury FourStroke Verado outboard provides plenty of motor power. The optional All-Activity Tower adds more rod holders, a tow bit and additional ski and wakeboard storage. Plush forward and stern seating and plentiful storage---including a slide-out 54-quart cooler beneath the pilot seat---give you all you need for great family outings, both inshore and offshore.
