Boston Whaler introduces the 240 Dauntless Pro, an exciting new inshore/offshore fishing platform

by: Brunswick,

(Apr 21, 2017 - Edgewater,FL.) There's a new champion on the scene:
The Boston Whaler 240 Dauntless Pro, a boat designed to maximize fishing
success—inshore, offshore and anywhere in between. Unrivaled Boston
Whaler hull construction combines with innovative, purpose-driven design
to satisfy the needs of serious anglers, without sacrificing comfort or

 "The 240 Dauntless Pro is designed for the serious angler, with
features and options that serve the technical bay boat market," said
Jeff Vaughn, Boston Whaler's vice president of sales, marketing and
customer service. "It's a tremendous fishing platform with all the
strengths quintessential to a Whaler: superior ride quality, ease of
operation, durability and comfort."

 A standout feature of the 240 Dauntless Pro is the new Pro Angler's
Tower. This raised vantage point provides uninterrupted, long-distance
visibility when searching for bait fish. It's easily accessible through
a dedicated portside access ladder—meaning unlike with some competitors'
models, there's no need to step precariously on the console to reach the
tower. The tower's intuitive helm station features a cushioned leaning
post and state-of-the-art Raymarine® electronics, just like the cockpit
helm station, for confident command in any position.

 When the action heats up, the Dauntless features a single-level stern
casting deck with a convenient center livewell and storage. The
cockpit's cushioned, function-forward leaning post with flip-up bolsters
provides ergonomic support for the captain while driving, then serves as
a go-to spot for fighting fish. Four rod holders on the leaning post
keep rods at hand, and dedicated cooler space below keeps the pathway
clear. Additional options include a power pole, trolling motor and jack

 As well-equipped as it is for serious fishing, the 240 Dauntless Pro
sacrifices nothing in terms of comfort or enjoyment. The crew can kick
back and relax in the spacious bow area, where plush seats with flip-up
backrests, a removable bow cushion and an optional sunshade make this a
great place to socialize. Aft plug-in seating drops into the transom to
provide additional versatility, and a standard head in the console
increases comfort during long days. On the hardtop, a glass windshield
and optional side curtains lend extra protection against the elements.

 Performance is another area in which the Dauntless Pro truly shines:
Boston Whaler's impeccable V-hull design works in tandem with the
cutting-edge Mercury® Verado® engine—up to 350-hp—to deliver strong,
efficient power; incredibly smooth, predictable handling; and a soft,
safe, dry ride.
 "The 240 Dauntless Pro is the total package," said Vaughn. "We're
thrilled to provide anglers with an exciting new platform to help
empower fishing success."
