About Boston Whaler Boats
Creating the Unsinkable
American nautical culture would not be complete without the Boston Whaler brand. The vessels are as well known to avid boaters as Fenway Park is for Red Sox fans. Known for being an unsinkable craft, the Boston Whaler offers boaters a mid-price ranged boat for sale with the amenities, functionality, and the historical establishment that other top brands in the industry strive to deliver. They are classical, iconic, but at the same time modern and timeless.Read More
A brief History of the Boston Whaler
Though the Boston Whaler is currently known for its unsinkable boats, this is not the first launched boat of the company. The first Whalers were launched in 1958, when founder Richard Fisher showcased the 13’ boat at the New York boat Show. However, even this is a bit misleading as Richard “Dick” Fisher had by that time established himself within the boating community, having graduated from Harvard in 1936 and working with rowboats and other boats since that time.
The Unsinkable boat was introduced in 1961. The induction of the vessel was done when Fisher sawed his boat in half. Prior to this event, such a public stunt had never been conducted (though now many of the brands have had similar shows of the durability of their vessels including SeaHunter boat Drop).Since that time, Boston Whaler has been pushing the boundaries in boating, specifically with the introduction of the Montauk in the 1980s, the new hull designs in the early nineties, and the classic tri-hulls boats in the late 1990s.
The Modern Boston Whaler
Boston Whaler boats for sale today are substantially different than that of their predecessors. The Brunswick Corporations (the current owners of the company) has released three new models for the 2018 year. These models are a celebration of the 60 years of the company’s success. The models are the newly designed 190 and 210 Montauks and a brand-new boat, the 380 Realm.
Alongside the standard features of the existing fleet, the modern Boston Whalers include increased storage space throughout, enhanced seating including a reversible pilot seat with locking backrest and storage, and optimized motor configurations such as quad Mercury Verado engines.
The Available Fleet
Due to the history of the company, as well as the constant introduction of new models to the Boston Whaler line, the Boston Whaler boats for sale have become quite expansive in their selection. Consequently, the company has had to make several categories for their boats. These categories include:
- Super Sport
Please note that all of these categories have their own selection of boats. For example, the conquest offers a 285 a 315 Pilothouse, 285 and 315 Standard, and a 345 Standard and Pilothouse. In addition to the various boats which are for sale, the features and the packaging available on the boats allows for a high level of customization and personalization.
The price bracket for the Boston Whaler boats for sale ranges from the 7 thousand up to over 370 thousand MSRP on new boats. Yet, you can still afford to purchase a Boston Whaler. According to market data from statricks blue book for motorboats, the average used price of a Boston Whaler ranges from $5005 t0 $10,771. This price fluctuates as the value of the Whaler is currently increasing an average of $20 per month. For both the boat buyer and the boat lister, this is good news. It shows that the depreciation value of the boat is slower than some of the other boats on the market. While the newer boats do have a rate of depreciation, you will note that the resale value is constantly rising minimizing that margin.
