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.
The 210 Montauk takes this classic model to new levels of functionality and possibility. Its standard high-value boat-motor-trailer package includes a 150-hp Mercury FourStroke outboard and capacious 70-gallon fuel tank, allowing you to go farther and boat longer than ever before. The larger size allows for an expansive forward deck area, which features a large fishbox, anchor locker and a convertible cooler seat with backrest. Anglers will appreciate the ample workspace, as well as the six standard rod holders and an optional aft livewell with two additional rod holders. The 210 steps it up in comfort too, with an enclosed head, forward bow cushion, and additional aft seating options. More options, like a T-top, ski tow arch and split bow rails allow you to outfit your Montauk to suit any boating application.
