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 270 Vantage is the boat that doesn't compromise -- because it doesn't have to. Every member of your family and all of your friends will find the perfect onboard activity, from fishing to watersports, cruising and lounging. Anglers in your crew will love the standard raw-water washdown and fishbox with drain. An optional fishing package takes things up a notch when you head offshore, offering a 19-gallon lighted livewell, a fishing station, and stainless steel transom-mounted rod holders.
Power across the saltwater with the standard 150-hp dual Mercury FourStroke Verado engines and a 175-gallon fuel tank, and rest assured that the ride will be an absolute pleasure for your guests, thanks to an extensive bow seating area with lounge backrests. For those who like to entertain on a cruise, you'll be the host with the most. An optional summer kitchen comes with several luxury touches, such as a refrigerator, electric grill and tool holders.
Those who love to ski or wakeboard will have the time of their lives behind the 270 Vantage. Besides brawny power, the boat offers an optional watersports tower with wakeboard racks and tow bit that will take you to new heights; a Fusion stereo system lets you rock out no matter how far offshore you go. When the day is done, store your gear or rods in the lockable in-floor ski/rod storage compartment.
The incredible design of the new 270 Vantage will change your view on what fishing, watersports and cruising can be. Hop onboard, and you'll see why it's destined to be Boston Whaler's next big legend.
