Boston Whaler says that families are most interested in five key areas when buying a boat: simplicity, versatility, comfort, fishability and safety. For comfort, the 240 Dauntless center console boat offers ergonomically designed seating that meets accepted guidelines for height, angle and support. Aft, the full-width bench features a backrest that's cushioned on one side with fiberglass nonskid on the other, so it converts to a broad casting deck. To fish forward, the captain simply folds down the plush bow seating and stows the cushions to create another open platform. A handy livewell, ample rod holders, and fish boxes complete the versatility.
