Boston Whaler Debuts the New 270 Dauntless



Boston Whaler debuts the 270 Dauntless, the largest model in this feature-rich boat family

Edgewater, Fla. (January 3, 2013) -
Boston Whaler expands its stylish, feature-rich Dauntless line with the addition of the brand-new 270 Dauntless. As Whaler's largest Dauntless yet, the 270 joins a family of boats that includes the top-selling 230 Dauntless. The 270 maintains the bold style and impeccable comfort that are Dauntless hallmarks, with enhancements to make this well-appointed boat even bigger and better.

"The 270 Dauntless builds upon the comfort and aesthetically appealing nature of the entire Dauntless family," said Jeff Vaughn, Boston Whaler's vice president of sales, marketing and customer service. "With this boat, you'll get more space, more storage, upgraded helm seating and leaning post, and you can cruise farther thanks to its size and larger fuel capacity. In true Dauntless spirit, the 270 is equipped for everything from offshore fishing runs to entertaining to watersports---and looks stylish doing it all."

The increased size of the 270 Dauntless allows for an extra spacious bow area, which includes an incredibly comfortable new forward console seat---sure to be a talked-about feature---and forward port and starboard seating with folding backrests, allowing as many as four adults to lounge in comfort and safety. The aft area of the cockpit is designed around the signature stern seat and casting deck that has made the Dauntless family popular, with a comfortable, full-width aft bench seat that converts to form a wide casting deck. With a larger-sized boat also comes increased storage space, including a bow anchor locker with overboard drain, storage under aft seat, and a market-leading, easy-to-access storage garage for up to five rods and an array of gear. From wakeboards to PFDs to snacks and drinks, there's room to bring anything needed for a full day's action. Other premium amenities on the 270 Dauntless include an integral swim platform and a Fusion stereo with MP3/USB inputs and top-shelf speakers from JL Audio, the leader in sound quality.

A key feature on the 270 Dauntless is the innovative helm seat, which has an integrated leaning post with cooler, rod holders, storage and grab rail. A choice of two deluxe leaning post options adds a 30-gallon livewell or a 3-drawer storage compartment, plus a 35-quart cooler, sink with fresh water and pull-out sprayer, and more. Another available feature is the integrated hardtop, which includes cockpit floodlights, red and white dome light, lifejacket storage and four more rod holders.

The 270 Dauntless offers customers the purposeful functionality and lasting durability they've come to expect of the line in a head-turning package that will allow them to enjoy their boating experience to the fullest.

"We are excited to offer boaters a larger Dauntless option," Vaughn said. "The 270 Dauntless provides tremendous style, comfort and versatility along with all the benefits of Boston WhalerÂ’s Unibond construction and award-winning design and patents. It's the perfect boat for families looking to add---and cross off---new items on their boating 'to-do' lists."
