230 Dauntless

Winner of an NMMA Innovation Award, the 230 Dauntless astonishes anglers and boating enthusiasts alike. The supremely versatile 230 Dauntless allows you to bring everything you need for a day of cruising, watersports, fishing---or all three---thanks to generous storage. Cutting-edge features abound, including group-friendly bow seating, a forward lounge, and the patented All Activity Tower option. Anglers will appreciate the standard livewell and aft casting deck, as well as a slew of options, such as an under-seat fishbox, raw water washdown and pedestal fishing seats. When not a platform for fishing or cruising, the 230 Dauntless makes an excellent yacht tender. Incredibly rugged and reliable, it's not your average dinghy. Add in its sophisticated fit and finish, and the sleek 230 Dauntless will win your boating affection, too.
