380 Outrage

We post few reviews about boats.

If now we’re going to, why not take a look at a classic company’s latest?

The 380 Outrage is Boston Whaler’s newest.

The 38-footer is among its Outrage family of boats from 19 to 42 feet.

Available with many options, the 380 can be built for offshore fishing or entertaining, or even as a yacht tender.

Its three Mercury Verado engines work remarkably efficient on the vessel, and provide reliability and smooth, predictable handling, according to Boston Whaler.

Amenities for fishing include a 60-gallon livewell, a leaning post that can include an additional livewell, and rod holders that are strategically placed.

Options for entertaining include stuff like a leaning post that converts into a Summer Kitchen with a grill instead.

The helm is air-conditioned and features seating for the captain and two companions.

Joystick Piloting is available for docking.

The cabin is spacious and air-conditioned and includes a full head.

Boston Whaler will celebrate 60 years in business next year.

The company introduced its first boat, a 13-footer, in 1958 at the New York Boat Show.

Early years included a famous event where the company’s boat was sawed in half and still floated, featured in LIFE magazine, putting the company on the map.

The company has since introduced many families of boats, including the Outrage in 1979.

Outrage still features that legendary, unsinkable hull.

One reason old Whalers are so strong and have lasted so many years is because the company's founder, Dick Fisher, wanted to make boats that are built right and last long, Penny Duncklee, his daughter, says in a video about the company's history.

"He did not subscribe to the idea: use it up, throw it out, get another," she says.

The 380’s features and options are too many to list here.
