2018 Boston Whaler 230 Vantage

Follow the status quo and you won’t earn the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s Innovation Award; but challenge the status quo and awards may come your way…especially if you do it well. The dual-console 230 Vantage® received the Innovation Award for expanding the possibilities capable in a 23-foot boat. For starters, seating is top-notch, and it delivers incredible comfort and rugged luxury with impressive power and capability so every crew can journey longer and farther in comfort, with Whaler confidence that goes to the core.

  • Spacious bow seating area accommodates an optional stowable table.
  • Like the smooth-riding hull, the crisp console is all about confident control.
  • Port seating adjusts readily to your needs and stows plenty of gear.
  • Next-level aft seating stows seamlessly to expand a large cockpit area for fishing or entertaining.
