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 240 Dauntless will thrill anglers and powerboat enthusiasts alike, and will be the site of many family gatherings thanks to its open layout and comfortable seating options. This supremely versatile boat allows you to bring everything you need for a day of cruising, watersports, fishing---or all three---thanks to generous storage in the bow, console and under the reversible pilot seat. The foldout aft bench with reclined backrest and an optional bow cushion offer added relaxation. Cutting-edge features abound, including group-friendly bow seating with foldup backrests and the patented All-Activity Tower option for skiers and wakeboarders. Anglers will appreciate the standard livewell and aft casting deck, as well as a slew of options, such as a reversible pilot seat with livewell, pedestal fishing seats and trolling motor panel. When not a platform for sport fishing or cruising, the 240 Dauntless makes an excellent yacht tender. Incredibly rugged and reliable, it's not your average dinghy. Add in its sophisticated fit and finish, and the sleek 240 Dauntless will win your boating affection, too.
