At this year’s Miami International Boat Show in February, Boston Whaler introduced its ninth center console Outrage model — the 380 — to a lineup that ranges from the 190 to the 420.
This 38-footer comes with fishing amenities that include a 60-gallon transom livewell, an optional tackle-center livewell, in-sole fish boxes, a fully equipped leaning post and ample rod holders. An integrated hardtop protects the crew, and the air-conditioned helm deck keeps everyone comfortable. An upper station is offered as an option.
Whaler also provides loads of creature comforts, from the roomy, notched bow, with its expansive seating and storage, including a cavernous garage beneath the bow lounge, to the cockpit’s new aft-facing couch with removable table.
The 380 incorporates some new optional electronics technologies, such as remote connectivity through Whaler Watch, a boat-monitoring and security system, and Seakeeper’s small-boat gyrostabilizer.
The center console can handle triple Mercury Verados, up to a maximum of 1,050 hp, with optional joystick piloting. In factory testing with triple 350s, the 380 topped out at 51 mph, turning 6,400 rpm and achieving 0.56 mpg.
