Here’s the preview of the new Boston Whaler 320 Vantage, just launched at 2015 Miami Boat Show, (February 12th to 16th).
It’s not just a bowrider, but a Dual Console designed for fishing and relaxing, thanks to the modular cockpit and the perimeter seats in the bow.
Dual Console, in the typical American naming, defines those boats where there’s a clear split between the pilothouse and the passenger station: in the middle, a passageway leads from the cockpit to the bow deck. Depending on the size, the passenger seat can be single or twin.
The Boston Whaler 320 Vantage, third model in the Dual Console range (since its introduction in 2013), boasts a double bench on the port side, and a peculiar structure behind it. It consists of a long cushion, with two tilting parts that can be positioned in the middle to create back-to-back seats, or folded down for a chaise longue / sun bed. On the starboard side the galley cabinet features racks and drawers, so it becomes functional to the gaming activity. Also handy for sportfishing, and even for diving, is the opening section located to aft of the starboard gunwale.
The new Boston Whaler 320 Vantage is the third model of its range, and the largest one measuring 10 meters. It is marketed in bundle with two Mercury Verado outboards, and with optional Raymarine electronics.
