When you take an offshore fishing trip, you can still enjoy ease and comfort. Boston Whaler’s new 345 Conquest features a climate-controlled helm area with seating for anglers and family within the integrated open-windshield/hardtop enclosure. A cockpit wet bar — with refrigerator/freezer, sink, storage, a cutting board and pullout grill — lets family and friends quickly wash up after a catch, and grab or prepare a snack.
To port, Whaler offers its reversible companion seating that easily transforms to face aft (with a pullout footrest) to watch baits or fishing action. The ample cockpit comes with a transom door, downrigger weight holders, up to 15 vertical rod holders, a 40-gallon livewell in the aft port corner, and two insulated in-deck fish boxes with pump-out.
Belowdecks, the cabin offers a six‑person dining table and full galley. The table and benches convert to a queen-size berth. A settee to starboard sleeps one adult or two kids.
The 345 Conquest handles triple Mercury outboards (up to 1,050 horsepower). It carries 400 gallons of fuel, and is outfitted with a gas generator and 45 gallons of freshwater storage. Base package price is $430,243. See our video of the 345. Call 877‑294‑5645 or visit bostonwhaler.com.
