UNSINKABLE, this claim was first publicized in the article ‘The Hull Truth’ in the May 19, 1961 issue of Life Magazine. Photographs show founder Richard Fisher seated comfortably in the stern with a logging saw cutting the boat in half. That tradition of proving unsinkable durability continues today with a multitude of grueling torture-tests. One of the most compelling tests of late was first cutting a fully rigged 37’ Outrage outfitted with 3 Mercury Verados in half behind the helm.
They did another test using 40 people on a cut in half 37’ boat. The boat stayed firmly afloat just below the waterline. This unique torture-test proves that today’s largest Whalers are indeed unsinkable. From splitting boats in two, shooting a hull with hundreds of bullets to driving a 69,000 lb. construction truck over a hull, the durability, strength, and safety of Whalers are undeniably legendary.
These boats boast a silky-smooth dry ride, steadfast performance, unmatched durability and uncompromising safety with their Unibond™ hull construction. They are the quintessential recreational vessel as well as the choice of every branch of the armed forces, dozens of law enforcement organizations and research institutions. Boston Whaler has been chosen by the U.S. Army’s Space and Missile Defense Command and the premier boat rescue organization, Sea Tow. This speaks volumes about their stability and durability.
