Boston Whaler 230 Outrage

A mid-size center console that combines layout and a superb ride with comfort, performance and an extra measure of safety

Boxing fans give powerful heavyweights plenty of respect, but often thrill at the agility of fighters whose big performance erupts from smaller packages. Punching above one’s weight, it’s called, which is just how Boston Whaler describes its 230 ­Outrage. This smaller sibling of last year’s 330 Outrage likewise is comfortable either fishing or for ­entertaining.

The key to big things in smaller packages, of course, is making sure space is used deliberately. Anglers see that in a roomy cockpit with a new multifunction leaning post that comprises both a handy work station and ­extra aft-facing seating. A fold-out stern seat has a backrest ­bolster for crew rest breaks.

Anglers are almost certain to opt for the Fishing Package, with its fish-box pump-out, fishing station, raw-water washdown and transom-mounted rod holders. Up front, the bow area has plenty of space and seating, with in-floor and underseat storage. Standard is a bow cooler with cushion and backrest.

The 230 Outrage is fishing ready off the line, but you can dress it up with touches such as a fiberglass hardtop, premium navigation and fish-finding electronics, JL Audio speakers, and more.
