Build This Boston Whaler 180 Dauntless

180 Dauntless

To put it succinctly: The 180 Dauntless does it all. Fishing? Try 10 standard rod holders, a wide aft casting deck, an optional front console livewell, two optional pedestal fishing seats and an optional trolling motor panel. If watersports and thrilling cruises are more your boating speed, the standard 150-hp Mercury FourStroke Verado outboard provides plenty of power. The optional All Activity Tower adds more rod holders, a tow bit and additional ski and wakeboard storage. Plush forward and stern seating and plentiful storage---including a slide-out 54-quart cooler beneath the pilot seat---give you all you need for great family outings, both inshore and offshore.
