The 350 is the first model in the Realm series of boats.

Boston Whaler has unveiled a new express model, the 350 Realm, which combines a center-console layout with a cabin.

The boat debuted last week as part of Boston Whaler’s 60th anniversary celebration in Sarasota, Fla.

“We are thrilled to introduce the 350 Realm, the first in an exciting new model family,” Boston Whaler president Nick Stickler said in a statement. “Our goal was to redefine the current express cruiser market to better meet the evolving needs of the customer, and with the Realm we have achieved a perfect balance of capability and comfort, spaciousness and convenience. By enabling a variety of activities —entertaining, offshore fishing, diving, long-distance cruising and beyond — the 350 Realm turns the possibility of ‘adventure’ into an achievable reality.”

The open bow features a port-side walkthrough for easy access, with a wide lounge seat forward of the console and forward deck seating opposite. An optional bow table, filler cushion and sun table are available.

The 350 Realm’s cockpit has a helm bench with armrests and flip-up bolsters. Abaft this seat, a mezzanine seat converts to face forward or aft and it houses a cooler. All the way aft, a convertible bench folds out from the transom. Cockpit features include in-sole fish boxes, a transom live well, a port-side dive door and a prep area with a sink.

Belowdecks, the cabin has a V-berth that converts into a double berth, and there’s a 28-inch flat-screen TV, a microwave oven and storage. The private head includes a VacuFlush head and a sink.

Power for the 350 Realm is triple Mercury Verado outboards up to 1,050 hp total, and they are available with Joystick Piloting, including Skyhook station keeping and Seakeeper stabilization to reduce boat roll.
