A port-side door opens into the sub-console head/berth compartment. Rich wood accents make it as cozy as a sub-console space can be, and this one has all of the amenities you could ever need, including a standard flat-screen TV, a shower, sink, head and large forward berth with plentiful dry storage beneath. This would make a suitable stateroom for overnighting, although most people will likely use it for storage.
Speaking of storage, a large sun pad on the forward side of the console sits atop a cavernous, lockable storage space, which contains racks for six rods, recesses for storing 5-gallon buckets and loads of room for extra loose stuff, an inevitable by-product of fishing trips. Whaler managed to build this spacious area into the boat without intruding into the bow area too much, another clever use of space.
The forward deck contains a large storage box, and an optional teak high-low table sits between the forward passenger seats. There are drink holders strategically located around the bow area, so a cool beverage is always close at hand. The forward anchor locker on our test boat contained the standard windlass and an optional stainless plow anchor mounted in a stainless steel receiver slotted through the bow, a popular design we see a lot these days. The boat has 360-degree coaming pads for maximum fishing comfort and a low-profile stainless hand rail forward.
The 370 Outrage comes with a wealth of standard features, including a bow thruster, providing a lot of boat for the money. The short list of options includes various Raymarine electronics packages and comfort items, such as a cockpit misting system, but the boat comes ready to fish. The 370 also comes with a 50-year heritage of thoughtful design, safety and innovation, which make the boat easier to use and enjoy, a combination many people are sure to find irresistible.
