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.
It's the "go" boat. The 200 Dauntless' standard 200-hp Mercury FourStroke Verado and 67-gallon fuel tank offer the horsepower---and staying power---you need to boat all day. The stern seat folds down to create an aft casting platform, and a standard insulated livewell keeps your catch fresh---an ideal angler boat. An enclosed head adds comfort when on a longer cruise, while lockable console storage and copious under-seat storage allow you to load up on fish and ski gear without sacrificing space. Watersports options include the innovative All Activity Tower. The 200 Dauntless also makes a superb tender. When you need to get to a larger yacht, you'll find this easy-to-trailer boat is ready to go at a moment's notice, all while providing durability other inflatable RIBs and yacht tenders don't.
