Boston Whaler is introducing its new 285 Conquest.

“The new 285 Conquest exemplifies where the Conquest line is evolving,” Ron Berman, Boston Whaler’s vice president of product development and engineering, said in a statement. “It improves upon its predecessor in styling, performance, storage and overall functionality. We listened to advice from customers and dealers, and the result is a Conquest model that will turn a lot of heads.”

The 285 is engineered with Whaler’s patented Unibond system, which ensures the brand’s “legendary unsinkability,” the company said. Boston Whaler raised the 285’s sheer line while lowering the deck profile to give the boat a more rugged, seaworthy appearance and feel on the water.

The hardtop and windshield have been integrated to provide improved weather protection and they allow for three distinct variations: an open windshield, an enclosed windshield and a pilothouse.
