Boston Whaler Dauntless

Boston Whaler announced today the debut of two new models in its Dauntless series: the 220 and the 250. Both the 220 and 250 offer graceful sheer line and 18-degree deadrise; Boston Whaler attests that boaters can safely head offshore as well as inshore, elevating the Dauntless series above a typical bay boat, with precision-engineered hulls that deliver predictable handling and a soft, stable ride even in choppy conditions. Each model, meanwhile, contains a helm station with the Mercury® SmartCraft deluxe gauge package and an optional Fusion® stereo with JL Audio® speakers.
“True to their name and heritage, the Dauntless models empower boaters to approach the water fearlessly, taking on new activities and exploring new territory with confidence,” says Nick Stickler, President, Boston Whaler. “The 220 and 250 are highly versatile, with the performance and features to unlock everything the water has to offer. We’re thrilled to introduce this next evolution of the popular Dauntless series.”
The 220 and 250 both offer a spacious bow lounge – including armrests and cupholders – directly in front of their respective console. The seat lifts open to reveal a cavernous storage compartment with space for multiple rods, buckets, PFDs, and more. Active boaters will appreciate other options such as Whaler’s All-Activity Tower®, which has a casting platform, watersports tow point, and ski and wakeboard racks. Mercury propulsion provides plenty of get-up-and-go for fast-paced laps around the lake, and swimmers can re-board the boat safely via the angled swim ladder and platform. These Dauntless models also feature an enclosed compartment in the console with a portable head.
For anglers, the Dauntless models deliver enhanced fishing capability with an open layout and an array of purposeful amenities and options. In the bow area, consumers will find well-placed rod holders and a forward fishbox with overboard drain. Midship, a versatile leaning post is available in several configurations which includes a reversible pilot seat with a 32-gallon livewell. Aft, the stern deck is now flush, rather than stepped up, with port and starboard jumpseats that offer ergonomic comfort and fold out of the way when not in use.

Additional 220 Dauntless Features Include:

  • Port and starboard aft casting platforms
  • Optional T-Top or fibreglass hardtop with rod holders and watersports tow point
  • Mercury power options up to a 250-HP XL V8
  • Optional freshwater shower with 12-gallon tank

Additional 250 Dauntless Features Include:

Forward bow sun pad with port and starboard folding backrests

  • Optional T-Top or fibreglass hardtop with rod holders and watersports tow point
  • Flush-mounted 35-gallon stern deck livewell
  • Full-beam aft casting platform
  • Mercury power options up to a 400-HP XXL L6 DTS Verado®
  • Optional freshwater shower with 12-gallon tank

 
“For boaters seeking a higher-quality bay boat experience, the 220 and 250 Dauntless truly raise the bar,” says Stickler. “At every stage of development, our team sought to refine, enhance and expand what this versatile series can do. The resulting boats empower more activities with zero trade-offs, making them exciting new leaders in the day boat market.”
