Boston Whaler is expanding its Dauntless line with the addition of the 270 Dauntless, which will be the line's largest boat.
"The 270 Dauntless builds upon the comfort and aesthetically appealing nature of the entire Dauntless family," vice president of sales, marketing and customer service Jeff Vaughn said in a statement. "With this boat, you'll get more space, more storage, upgraded helm seating and leaning post, and you can cruise farther thanks to its size and larger fuel capacity. In true Dauntless spirit, the 270 is equipped for everything from offshore fishing runs to entertaining to watersports, and looks stylish doing it all."
The increased size of the 270 Dauntless allows for extra space in the bow area, which includes a new forward console seat and forward port and starboard seating with folding backrests, allowing as many as four adults to lounge safely.
The aft area of the cockpit is designed around the signature stern seat and casting deck that has made the Dauntless family popular, with a full-width aft bench seat that converts to form a wide casting deck.
With a larger-sized boat also comes increased storage space, including a bow anchor locker with overboard drain, storage under aft seat, and a storage garage for up to five rods and an array of gear. Other amenities on the 270 Dauntless include a swim platform and a Fusion stereo with MP3/USB inputs and speakers from JL Audio.
The helm seat has an integrated leaning post with cooler, rod holders, storage and grab rail. A choice of two leaning post options adds a 30-gallon livewell or a 3-drawer storage compartment, plus a 35-quart cooler, sink with fresh water and pull-out sprayer, and more. Another available feature is the integrated hardtop, which includes cockpit floodlights, red and white dome light, lifejacket storage and four more rod holders.
"We are excited to offer boaters a larger Dauntless option," Vaughn said. "The 270 Dauntless provides tremendous style, comfort and versatility along with all the benefits of Boston Whaler's Unibond construction and award-winning design and patents. It's the perfect boat for families looking to add-and cross off-new items on their boating 'to-do' lists."
