Boston Whaler marked five decades of Outrage production with a celebration in Quincy, Mass., that included the display of the first Outrage built and the new 420 model.

Outrage hull No. 001 is owned by the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Mass.

“We’re proud to bring together our latest Outrage, the new 420, with the very first Outrage ever built — right here in Massachusetts, the birthplace of our brand,” Boston Whaler director of marketing Melanie Whaley said in a statement.

Boston Whaler founder Richard Fisher sold the 21-footer to the Marine Biological Laboratory in 1971. The non-profit research and education lab uses four Boston Whalers to conduct its studies.

“This boat has been in continuous operation since 1971,” said MBL director of marine operations David Remsen. “Think of it as a 50-year field test demonstrating the durability and legacy of the brand. We’ve used this vessel as a workboat; it hasn’t been pampered.”

Boston Whaler partnered with Nauset Marine to repower the boat with a new 200-hp Mercury outboard. MarineMax Boston was also recognized as a Boston Whaler dealer for 50 years.
