Boston Whaler Unveils its Largest Model to Date at the Miami Boat Show

Miami, Fla. (February 13, 2014)
- More comfort. More cutting-edge features. More than you thought possible. Prepare for the biggest, boldest, most inspired Boston Whaler ever.

The stage was set during the 2014 Miami International Boat Show, where Boston Whaler hosted its annual press event on Thursday. As remarks drew to a close, President Huw Bower stepped forward to announce a special unveiling. Pulling the curtain from a large display revealed an intricate, three-foot scale model---a perfect replica of the coming 420 Outrage.

"You're looking at what will be the largest Boston Whaler ever produced," Jeff Vaughn, vice president of sales, marketing and customer service, addressed the crowd. "It all began by asking, 'How can we push beyond the limits of what's possible in a center console boat?' We've found our answer in the 420 Outrage. There is literally nothing else like it on the marketplace."

Size, of course, will be a major component of the new 420 Outrage, but size that's used thoughtfully. Because this is a boat designed to encourage onboard entertaining, every square inch will take into account a boater's comfort and convenience. The gracious bow area will facilitate group gatherings in a whole new way. The well-appointed cabin will provide a welcome break from the elements. The helm station will be a conversation starter, to say the least, and innovations in seating will be a hallmark. And, true to its Outrage lineage, serious sportfishing will fall squarely within its domain.

Performance will also astound. Look to quad Mercury Verado 300s with Joystick Piloting for incredible power and precision. Delivering on its reputation for reliability, Mercury is a leader in the marine propulsion industry, and its popular Verado systems continue to earn raves from satisfied customers. Mercury's integrated SmartCraft VesselView display, power steering, and digital throttle and shift will combine on the 420 to deliver a sophisticated, seamless command experience. It's a power configuration worthy of an envelope-pushing boat---one that never begs for attention, but will turn heads nonetheless.

"The Boston Whaler legacy is defined by its most groundbreaking moments---those important leaps forward in design, technology and manufacturing," said Bower. "The 420 Outrage marks an exciting new chapter in our legend with a bold declaration of performance and capability."
