I think, by now, every fisherman has seen that famous Boston Whaler advertisement with a happy fisherman floating high and dry on a Whaler that has been cut into three separate pieces. For over 50 years, from their home in Edgewater, Florida, Boston Whaler has been making boats both large and small that keep their loyal customers returning again and again. Brand new for 2014 is the 240 Dauntless, an all-around family fishing/sport boat with an open cockpit layout, large casting platforms and many accessories to transform the Dauntless into pretty much any purpose you might need. For maximum corrosion resistance, stainless steel is everywhere you look in the fittings and grab rails and there are plenty of lockable storage compartments to keep your gear safe and dry. Standard equipment also includes a slide-out cooler, reversible captain’s seat, plenty of seating for passengers, rod holders, drink holders and a folding head in the console. A huge list of available options allows you to customize your boat anyway you like.
