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.

Boston Whaler 280 Outrage

Boat Description

The 280 Outrage is a superior fishing, entertaining and cruising vessel. Other boat manufacturers can't come close to matching the premium craftsmanship of the 280 Outrage, starting with the boat's state-of-the-art center console. It features a tempered-glass windshield with power-actuated vent, cutting-edge Mercury SmartCraft instrumentation and Raymarine displays, and a heavy-duty integrated hard-top system with floodlights and life jacket storage. An enclosed head lends comfort, and the boat's wide beam and plush seating enhance group pleasure cruises. The 280 Outrage is a bona fide sport fishing machine, too, with serious angling features such as the deluxe leaning post with bait prep area, a 40-gallon livewell, and three massive fishboxes. For those looking for a dedicated tender for their luxury yacht, the 280 Outrage answers the call. Better than a RIB, more than a dinghy, this boat serves as a tender and a memory-making platform for fishing runs and family cruises.
