Boat Reviews By Owners

1985 -- 27' 0" BOSTON WHALER

Model: 27 Full Cabin

Cockpit: Large cockpit. Two levels with about six inches difference. Boat has no seats. Visibility is great for someone over six feet. Stool is necessary for someone shorter.

Cabin: Cabin has V berths but no middle piece. Slightly over 6' headroom. Head has porcelain fixture with holding tank, ss sink with generous counter space.

Construction: This is the fourth Whaler I have owned. In my opinion no company builds a better boat. All top notch components.

Handling: This is a big, heavy boat that handles well in all conditions. Whalers are known as unsinkable because the hull is a foam sandwich.

Engine Room: Twin 225 OMC Sea Drives. These were among the first, if not THE first, bracketed engines. They are 225 Evinrudes with a different mounting system. Simple hydraulic steering.

General Comments: We just use it for cruising. The previous owner was a serious fisherman who took it off shore. Boat has an insulated fish box that is 3'X4'X 3' high.
