A tough, versatile fishing machine with uncompromising safety and unsurpassed construction.

Key Features

    The most outstanding feature of this and any other Whaler is her absolute unsinkability. Boston Whaler is the only boat company to include “swamped capacity” in their specifications. The Outrage’s swamped capacity is 4,900 lbs. That’s what it will take to bring water in over the gunwales. But that’s as far as she goes. The boat won’t go down. Add Whaler’s patented Accutrack hull design, which contributes to her smooth, dry ride, superior stability and excellent tracking and you have a fish-anywhere boat.

The Unsinkable Boat

The 23 is unsinkable because she's cored with foam floatation that's wrapped in a double-bonded layup.

She's big for a 23-footer.

The bow offers a good platform to work a fish or to simply relax in the sun.

The 23 has a foldable transom benchseat.

A foldable benchseat can be stowed away when fighting a fish, and pulled out again when underway.

Boston Whaler 23 Outrage (Not in Production) Captain's Report

This Outrage has all the components that you would expect on a top quality fishing machine. Installed in that unsinkable hull (she’s unsinkable because she’s cored with foam floatation that’s wrapped in a double-bonded layup) are all 316 grade stainless steel fastenings, tinned copper wiring and a heavy duty, vinyl-covered rubrail. Her flat-topped console is glare resistant and access to wiring for the installation of any electronics you wish (there’s plenty of room) is a no-brainer. Concealed in the forward section of that console is a Porta Potti. Her aft vinyl-covered cockpit bench—it will seat three—folds back to allow more fishing room.

Outboard of the cockpit, there’s an integrated transom livewell and there are two in-deck fishbox/stowage areas. That's not counting the 96-quart cooler below the leaning post (which has its own stowage area). There’s more self-draining stowage under the forward deck. The swimming platform is also integral and includes a stainless steel ladder and grab rail.

The Outrage can be rigged with single or twin outboards to 300-hp. Optional equipment includes a suntop with boot and a T-top with Topgun outriggers and an integral electronics box. In a nutshell, an uncompromising boat.
