The Boston Whaler Outrage series has a new member in the 230 Outrage center console.

The 23-footer joins the new 250, 280 and 330 Outrages.

"The customer's experience was a primary concern in designing the new 230 Outrage,"  Boston Whaler vice president of sales, marketing and customer service Jeff Vaughn said in a statement. "We listened closely to our boaters' feedback on how, where and why they use their boats. These insights helped to shape the next generation of Outrage. They also fuel our commitment to providing Core Confidence through boats that are purposeful, intuitive and perform seamlessly."

The model features 360 degrees of walkaround. Amenities include a standard head in the console.

The bow area includes wraparound forward seating with cup holders and a two-person forward-facing seat directly in front of the console that lifts to reveal storage. There is additional storage under a hatch in the floor.

Options include a bow table that stores in the console when it’s not in use and a JL Audio stereo package.

Rod holders are placed throughout the cockpit, and the transom features a port-side live well.

The 230 also has a converting leaning post. It starts as a standard bench helm seat, but its backrest conceals a flip-down workstation. The backrest can also be rotated down 90 degrees to form an aft-facing seat. A 54-gallon cooler slides below. Anglers can select the optional fishing leaning post to gain a 30-gallon live well in this area of the boat.

"The new 230 Outrage delivers comfort and capability for boaters who expect the very best," Vaughn said. "We're pleased to add another source of Core Confidence to the storied Outrage lineup."
