A legacy of

Innovation

Boston Whaler crafts the safest, easiest to own, most exciting boats on the water. Since its founding 60 years ago, Whaler has conceived and built peerless designs that meet boaters’ diverse and changing needs. Only Whaler can bring you a legendary, innovative boat that is engineered for a lifetime of enjoyment and dependability. Only Whaler can bring you an Unsinkable Legend™.

It began with founder Richard Fisher’s inspired new construction method, devising a foam-injected hull that literally would not sink (not even after being sawed in half!). That spirit continues today, in a storied lineup of boats ranging from 11 to 42 feet. True to Fisher’s vision, Boston Whaler's tight-knit team has consistently pushed the envelope, furthering advances in manufacturing, design, navigation and propulsion technologies. The company holds patents for a variety of systems and features — including the Multi-Position Lounge found on every Vantage model; the swim patio on the 270 Dauntless; the Dauntless family’s AllActivity Tower option; a proprietary Bow Thruster, and more — and continues to seek new and better ways to serve its boating family. More than any other manufacturer, Boston Whaler maintains a profound respect for its customers, and it’s a difference you will feel — a confidence that comes from the very core.

“The appearance of the Whaler, the way it handles, the way it responds… I can’t explain it any other way than to say it’s sort of like love.” Clark Roberts, Boston Whaler owner since 1966 “After having a Whaler, I would never be happy with anything else.” Thomas Wheaton, 330 Outrage owner


Design, Engineering, Manufacturing & Quality Behind every Boston Whaler is a group of talented, passionate employees, working together to deliver the best quality boats on the water. The company fosters a culture of teamwork and support, in which employees are encouraged to ask questions and challenge each other. Quality boats begin by listening to the consumer. Whaler conducts extensive research, gathering feedback from longtime owners and dealers to inform each new model and iteration. That research is incorporated by the design and engineering teams, who in turn work collaboratively so that form and function complement each other at every opportunity. Finally, the designed product enters the manufacturing stage, where that initial consumer feedback continues to inform and inspire the boats that emerge, polished and perfected. The ultimate goal for every Boston Whaler is to provide a boating experience that feels like second nature. Features and options are chosen purposefully; layouts have an innate logic; performance and handling are precise and predictable. Whalers are designed to be lower-maintenance, meaning cost of ownership remains low as well. Time and again, customers write in testifying to their 10-, 20- and 30-year-old (and older!) Whalers that continue to serve them faithfully. When you purchase a Whaler, you’re getting a boat built to last a lifetime.

A Well-Oiled

Machine

The Boston Whaler difference is apparent from the moment you step aboard. Whaler’s hulls are precision-engineered to anticipate and harness the forces of water, balancing stability and softness to produce a smooth, dry ride. At the heart of every Whaler is the exclusive Unibond™ construction process. Whaler uses a proprietary closed-cell, environmentally friendly foam, injected between the hull’s inner and outer liners — not just below the waterline but up the sides, as well — to create a single, unbreakable unit. This not only results in the boats’ unsinkability, but also contributes greatly to ride quality. Further, every Whaler is put through rigorous, comprehensive testing to ensure superior performance. Whereas many companies outsource this part of the process, Whaler employs a team of in-house naval architects and structural engineers. This allows for in-depth stability analysis to occur and, more importantly, allows for close back-and-forth communication between the design and engineering groups. Tolerances become more precise, efficiencies increase and the boats reflect the true power of teamwork. This entire process requires close orchestration of all manufacturing teams, and to that end Whaler invests greatly in the training and support of its employees. As part of the Touch Point Program, full-time trainers meet frequently with new team members to shore up their knowledge and comfort levels. Tour the facility and you’re likely to hear at least one staff member proudly refer to Whaler as “a well-oiled machine,” fueled by decades of experience and palpable enthusiasm.

“With Whaler, operation is easy and simple. In the water, the boats are awesome. We stick with Whaler because our owners and their guests recognize and respect it. There’s peace of mind that comes with the ‘Unsinkable Legend.’” — Yacht Captain Tom Healy

Unbeatable Performance Yes, you can cut a Boston Whaler in two and drive away in the half with the engine. But unsinkability means more than just the unmatched safety of Unibond™ hull construction. It means smart design, high-quality construction and forward-thinking technology. It means premium experiences and comfort year in and year out, whether you’re fishing, cruising or both. It means having the Core Confidence to take on anything from the shallows to the roughest offshore water without worrying about a thing. In addition, every Boston Whaler comes equipped with Mercury® FourStroke or FourStroke Verado® engines, precisely power-matched to each boat, with a variety of upgrade options including double-, triple- and quadruple engine configurations. Breakthroughs including Mercury’s Joystick Piloting make it possible to maneuver in any direction and allow for virtually effortless docking; Mercury’s Digital Throttle & Shift provides for smooth, predictable and quiet shifting, as well as ultra-responsive throttle control. An industry leader in its own right, Mercury delivers superior performance and continues to challenge the limits of possibility. In fact, Boston Whaler’s designers and engineers work closely with Mercury’s, sharing a significant amount of research and collaboration during the development, manufacturing and testing phases. This ensures a seamless interaction between boat and engine, for uninterrupted boating enjoyment.

“Whaler boats are, without question, the best quality and value for a center console boat on the market. Bar none!” — Boston Whaler owner Joseph Ciccarello

“I’ve been thrilled with the Mercury Verados. They’re quiet, they’re efficient. Great performance on the boats.” — Eric Moilanen, 315 Conquest owner
