The new Boston Whaler 230 Outrage received the Innovation Award from the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in the Center Console/Walkaround Fishing Boats category.
“We’re honored to receive an Innovation Award for our 230 Outrage,” said Boston Whaler President Nick Stickler. “The 230 demonstrates Boston Whaler’s commitment to delivering Core Confidence, marrying rugged fishing capability and cutting-edge technology with design innovations that enhance comfort, enjoyment and ease of use.”
The 230 Outrage is incredibly roomy for its size. The bow was pushed out as far as possible to make to allow for wider seats, more legroom, lounge seating and storage.
Another innovative feature is the Converting Leaning Post. It appears to be a standard helm bench seat, but after you flip down the back of the seat you reveal a hidden work station. It is perfect for prepping lines, tackle or snacks while giving anglers a supported aft-facing stance. You can flip the table closed to maximize cockpit space. And for additional seating, the backrest rotates down a full 90 degrees to form the backrest of a comfortable aft-facing seat. All of this versatility while preserving storage space for a 54-quart cooler.
This is a serious fishing boat.
The 230 Outrage features wide walkways and high freeboard. As with all Whalers, the 230 Outrage is incredibly easy to clean, operate and maintain.
The 230 Outrage is the sixth Boston Whaler model to win an NMMA Innovation Award in the last ten years.
