Boston Whaler 320 Vantage First Glance

Whaler offers optional fishing package for its flagship dual console.

Boston Whaler upsized its previous 230 and 270 dual-consoles to offer an even larger, more sophisticated offshore vessel in the 320. Throughout the boat, seating can be manipulated for multiple uses: The portside companion seat can face forward when running, aft to watch baits, or expand completely for a sun lounge. The aft bench seat with elevated backrest folds away neatly to further open the broad cockpit.

The cockpit utility center can be optioned as a complete bait-prep and tackle station with a 40-gallon livewell, or arranged with an electric grill, fridge and sink. The cockpit sunshade deploys electronically from the hardtop and extends to the aft bench for heat and UV protection.

Other optional equipment in the Fishing Package includes aft hardtop rod holders, raw-water washdown, and toe rails, plus an under-gunwale storage shelf.

The big dual-console can carry twin outboards totaling 700 horsepower. It offers 275-gallon fuel capacity. Factory testing showed the 320 with twin Mercury 350 Verados reached a top speed of 51 mph, achieving 0.83 mpg, and planed in 8.5 seconds.
