With a bold new model making its world premiere, an increased presence on-water at the Bahia Mar, and twenty boats on display across two locations, Boston Whaler said it plans to make a big impression on visitors to the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
“We’re thrilled to introduce a new model that heralds the return of adventurous overnighting: the all-new 405 Conquest,” said Boston Whaler president Nick Stickler. “We also have a surprise in store that we know customers are going to enjoy.”
The 405, referred to by Boston Whaler as the SUV of the Sea, delivers performance capability paired with luxury touches that encourage entertaining and overnighting, according to the boatbuilder.
Below deck, a new cabin features a private master stateroom and guest sleeping quarters, an enclosed head with separate shower, a convenient galley and more.
Meanwhile, Boston Whaler said the Conquest’s new hull, redesigned from the keel up, delivers impressive planing and greater stability than ever, and the optional Seakeeper gyro-stabilization system virtually eliminates boat roll.
The new model offers a standard of quad 300-hp Mercury Verado engines with optional Joystick Piloting for power and control.
The Boston Whaler lineup will be well represented in Fort Lauderdale, with a variety of models open to step aboard including six NMMA Innovation Award winners: the 160 Super Sport, 230 Outrage, 230 Vantage, 320 Vantage, 345 Conquest featuring the Dynamic Cabin System, and 350 Realm.
With the recent grand opening of the Brunswick Boat Group Technology Center, housed on Boston Whaler's Edgewater campus, the company said it is primed to introduce even more boating breakthroughs in the future.
“As ever, we are committed to enhancing boaters’ time on the water with purposeful innovations that lend convenience, comfort, ease and versatility. We’re excited for customers to spend time with our lineup and see what we’ve been up to at Whaler,” said Stickler. “The Fort Lauderdale Boat Show provides a unique platform on the world stage, and we intend to make the most of it.”
