A VOYAGE-WORTHY VESSEL

He’s talking about the family’s 345 Conquest, with its strong-butquiet triple 350-hp Mercury Verado® engines. David and his wife, Nadja, live in West Palm Beach, Florida, and say they first fell in love with the Conquest model at the 2014 Miami International Boat Show. “We were thoroughly impressed with the layout,” David says. “And we knew that Whalers were really well-made. After visiting the boat probably 20 times, we did a trial and then pulled the trigger.” Apparently pleased with their purchase, they then upgraded to the 2018 model. Both boats turned out to be a good investment, and David and Nadja were happy with the buying process at MarineMax Palm Beach. “Our salesperson, Danny Brown, has been great to work with,” David says. “He’s always available, and he’s got a plethora of information.” The Feltons had owned an express-style fishing boat prior to their first Whaler, but they didn’t feel confident in its reliability or design, especially with their son, Gerrit (now 16), and daughter, Sydney (now 14), onboard. “We’d been caught out in the elements several times,” David says. “We wanted something that had an enclosure.” With the confidence of a Whaler under their feet, the Feltons have been able to truly enjoy their days on the water and focus on new horizons. Still, they maintain respect for the sea, what Mother Nature can bring on, and the thrill of what’s around the bend. “When going out on the ocean, you’ve got to be aware,” David says. “It’s an adventure; that’s probably the best way to describe it. And going to new places you’ve never been before is always exciting.”
