Boston Whalers truly are the "unsinkable legend" ~ well known for their superior quality all over the world.

Some 50yrs ago, Boston Whaler lead the boatbuilding industry by designing the first center-console style skiffs.

Beginning in 1970, they hit their creative climax with an outrageous new Outrage series.  These innovative designs proved to be

immensely popular and firmly established Boston Whaler as the premier center-console boat.  The 1970-79 vintage Outrages (and Revenges)

 are affectionately known as "banana boats" because the unique shape of their hull closely resembles two pontoon-like bananas

situated on either side of a deep V keel.

 

Today, a small group of die-hard Whaler aficionados have made significant cultural contributions by doing complete restorations.

As one can see from the photos, these American icons continue to turn heads where ever they go!

Yep, these suckers don't sink; Dick Fischer, snappy dresser & original designer of the Boston Whaler hull

risks a dunking to prove it'll stay afloat ~ even when cut in half.
