Boston Whaler is a brand of motorboat manufactured in the United States. Classically, a Whaler is characterized by a foam-cored fiberglass hull (often of modified vee cathedral hull form), with an outboard motor and center steering console. They are manufactured by Boston Whaler, Inc.
The original 13 foot (4 m) Whaler hull was produced in 1956 by Richard T. “Dick” Fisher and C. Raymond Hunt. The hull geometry was a modification of the Hickman sea sled hull. The hull used the then new polyurethane foam to completely fill a fiberglass skin. This design is now also used by some other manufacturers and provides strength, buoyancy, and sound deadening when compared to traditionally constructed fiberglass boats.
While most Boston Whaler boats have been sold to the recreational market, many Boston Whalers have been purchased by coast guard and naval units worldwide. “The unique Boston Whaler boat has attracted an intensely loyal group of owners and fans.” Active discussion forums on the web attest to the broad allegiance to the brand. It is used for sport fishing, water skiing, as a runabout, and as a tender on larger yachts.
Although originally Boston Whaler boats were manufactured in Massachusetts, the current manufacturing facility is in Edgewater, Florida.
Boston Whaler is currently operated as a subsidiary of the Brunswick Boat Group, a Division of the Brunswick Corporation, located in Lake Forest, Illinois. Brunswick also owns Mercury Marine; as a result, new Boston Whalers, like all other Brunswick boats, ship from the factory already equipped with Mercury engines.
