EDGEWATER, Fla. — The highly anticipated new Boston Whaler 420 Outrage will make its world premiere this month at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. With an array of breakthroughs in design and technology, the 420 is the largest and most advanced Whaler model to date.
“The 420 Outrage marks a new chapter in the Boston Whaler legend,” said President Huw Bower. “The level of sophistication, comfort, performance and capability is unparalleled—truly, this is a boat like no other. We’re thrilled for it to take center stage at Fort Lauderdale and beyond.”
The 420 Outrage is designed to encourage onboard entertaining, with thoughtful social zones throughout the boat and amenities for a wide range of activities. Every square inch takes into account boaters’ comfort and convenience. A prime example is the expansive bow area, with clever backrest configurations that provide 360-degree seating around the large, removable bow table. An available sunshade easily deploys over the area, providing welcome protection from the sun even when anchored far from shore. Another sunshade extends aft beyond the hardtop to shelter Passengers in the cockpit.
The helm area of the 420 is spectacular in its ability to accommodate up to six passengers while underway, all facing forward, standing or sitting. An actuated captain’s seat and dual forward-or-backward facing companion seating is accompanied by an entire second row: a conversion bench that flips to face forward, or aft for when the main action is in the rear cockpit.
“The 420 Outrage breaks boundaries for center console capability,” said Jeff Vaughn, Boston Whaler vice president of sales, marketing and customer service. “It embodies a perfect balance of powerful offshore performance and exquisite onboard comfort. There is literally nothing else like it on the marketplace.”
Another standout feature of the boat is its gracious cabin. With a whopping seven feet of headroom, it offers superior comfort and an ideal place to escape from the elements. Ample skylights flood the area with natural light, and eye-level porthole windows add a sense of bringing the outdoors in. In the V-berth, a large dining table makes this a perfect place to gather with friends over drinks or a game of cards; the table then converts easily to become a bed. Additional sleeping space to port and a tasteful galley and head are just three of the many features that make the cabin a welcoming space.
Owners can also choose from three interior finish packages to customize the Outrage to their personal tastes.
“The 420 Outrage offers a new level of sophistication,” said Bower. “It’s a culmination of so many fundamental Whaler attributes: Unbeatable safety and performance. Effortless style. Incredible versatility. Cutting-edge technology. It’s precisely those strengths that enable us to deliver something even more: the future of boating, brought squarely into the present.”
