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

Boston Whaler's 230 Vantage delivers all the power, safety, comfort and luxury appointments you expect from a Whaler -- in a revolutionary dual console layout. Invite your whole family and all your friends to ride onboard this game-changing boat. Every one of them will leave happy.

The 230 Vantage's incredible design features a spacious bow area with cushions, backrests and cup holders, and a fold-out stern seat with backrest provides comfort for additional crew members. The innovative convertible port lounge seat with storage faces either forward or backward, so you can face your guests or watch the watersports behind the boat.

Hardcore anglers will appreciate the utility center in the cockpit, which includes a sink with drain, a cutting board and a 36-quart cooler. An optional fishing package adds a 14-gallon livewell, a fishing station, a raw-water washdown and transom-mounted rod holders. Cruise confidently offshore for an extended fishing run, thanks to an accessible head featuring a molded sink with drain and lockable entry door.

For those who put the ski in fish and ski, the 230 Vantage has it all. A watersports tower with navigation light and tow bit, plus the power of a 225-hp Mercury FourStroke Verado engine ensure thrilling rounds behind the rope. A standard Fusion stereo system pumps out music to ski to, or an optional premium audio package (amp, premium speakers, subwoofer) will really get things bumping.
