MIAMI—Wrapping up the first day of the 2018 Progressive Miami International Boat Show, Boston Whaler’s 380 Realm made its world premiere on the docks at the Miami Marine Stadium on Virginia Key.

“The 380 Realm is designed to make any one-water goal possible, said Boston Whaler vice president of sales, marketing and customer service, Jeff Vaughn, in a statement. “It’s geared for impressive capability and total comfort, expanding the definition of ‘all-day boat’ into something that encompasses cruising, fishing, entertaining, overnighting, long-distance travel and more. It is a clear reflection of the 60 years of innovation and excellence that go into every Boston Whaler.” The company is celebrating its 60 anniversary in 2018.

Starboard side steps facilitate boarding and a new windshield design features a glass door that can be secured in the open position to provide bow access. In the bow, a wide lounge seat forward of the console seats three across and has fold-down armrests. Options in the bow include a drop-in table, filler cushions and a sun shade.

At the helm, there are a total of four seats in two rows. The aft seats convert to rear-facing. There’s also a convertible aft seat that folds out from the transom. A large underseat cooler is located beneath the mezzanine row of the helm seats. It can be accessed by lifting up the seat or through an access door. A portside prep center has a grill and refrigerator.

Overhead, an integrated hardtop is equipped with a Sureshade sunshade and it features an electric sunroof and skylight option.

Belowdecks, the cabin has a V-berth with a dining table that converts to a double bed plus a head with standup headroom and a vanity sink and shower. Other cabin amenities include a flatscreen TV, a galley with a microwave, refrigerator and sink and storage space in cabinets.

On the water, the 380 Realm is powered by quad 350-hp Mercury Verado outboards. Boston Whaler says the boat tops 50 mph with these motors. The boat measures 38’ long with an 11-foot, 8-inch beam and weighs in at 28,000 pounds. Fuel capacity is 450 gallons.
