Boston Whaler unveiled the all-new Outrage 360 at the Miami International Boat Show last week, and there is much to discuss. Whaler's ambitious new plans are well captured on an impressively versatile platform.
The use of space is the central component of the 360 Outrage. The bow has been reconfigured to highlight fishing options, which includes easier access to the windlass/anchor and more available storage. The cockpit is uniquely customizable and includes a transom prep station that's also offered as a 'summer kitchen' with a grill and solid countertop. Rear-facing cockpit seating has a flip-down work surface to help with baiting or rigging lines. The helm features a standard 16" Simrad display and an available Seakeeper gyrostabilizer system.
A hardtop ladder at the centerline boasts a large hatch opening, and an optional hard top rack adds plenty of storage for SUPs, watersports toys, and other gear.
Below deck is a large cabin with a deployable birth that flips up to secure belongings. It also includes additional storage and rod holder lockers. An enclosed wet-head is well appointed to add additional comfort during long outings.
“By harnessing the power of simplicity, the new 360 Outrage combines a distinctly user-friendly design with an array of exciting new technologies developed in tandem with our sister companies at Brunswick,” said Director of Marketing Melanie Whaley. “It’s the perfect cornerstone for our presence in Miami, as it reflects the spirit of purposeful innovation at the heart of every Boston Whaler model.”
Power options include standard triple 300-hp Mercury Verado engines with Joystick Piloting (JPO). Available Mercury upgrades include triple 450-hp Mercury Racing engines or twin 600-hp V12 Verado engines.
The 360 Outrage will also offer remote monitoring and control for the boat's systems via digital switching technology. A key fob allows owners to power up their batteries, turn on and adjust lighting levels, and deploy and retract the sunshade, among other features. The boat also features Mercury's new 1st Mate Marine Safety & Security System.
Other standout features include the Fathom e-Power system, which uses marine-grade lithium ion batteries to provide an energy efficient alternative to fuel-powered generators. The e-Power system allows the user to deploy all the features on their boat, but with quieter and more eco-friendly functionality.
