Boston Whaler 230 Vantage
Build This Boston Whaler 230 Vantage

230 Vantage

See the legend in a whole new light. Winner of the 2013 NMMA Innovation Award, Boston Whaler's new 230 Vantage delivers all the power, safety, comfort and luxury appointments you expect from a Whaler---in a revolutionary dual console layout. Invite your whole family and all your friends to ride onboard this game-changing boat. Every one of them will leave happy.


The 230 Vantage's incredible design features a spacious bow area with cushions, backrests and cup holders, and a fold-out stern seat with backrest provides comfort for additional crew members. The innovative convertible port lounge seat with storage faces either forward or backward, so you can face your guests or watch the watersports behind the boat.


Hardcore anglers will appreciate the utility center in the cockpit, which includes a sink with drain, a cutting board and a 36-quart cooler. An optional fishing package adds a 14-gallon livewell, a fishing station, a raw-water washdown and transom-mounted rod holders. Cruise confidently offshore for an extended fishing run, thanks to an accessible head featuring a molded sink with drain and lockable entry door.


For those who put the ski in fish and ski, the 230 Vantage has it all. A watersports tower with navigation light and tow bit, plus the power of a 225-hp Mercury FourStroke Verado engine ensure thrilling rounds behind the rope. An optional Fusion stereo system pumps out music to ski to, and the optional premium audio package (amp, premium speakers, subwoofer) really gets things bumping.
