Boston Whaler 420
Cutting-edge technology and effortless style were on display at Coal Harbour Marina, as M&P Yacht Centre hosted the debut of the West Coast’s first Boston Whaler 420 Outrage on Saturday, April 9th. 

Guests witnessed the launch of the 420 Outrage on a gloriously sunny afternoon, and were also invited to view the West Coast-inspired Conquest Pilothouse series, including the 285, 315 and 345. 

“Whaler has done it again!” said M&P Yacht Centre President, Bob Pappajohn. “We are thrilled to introduce Boston Whaler’s largest, most spectacular boat to our West Coast audience. The 420 Outrage is true comfort and luxury in an incredibly capable package.” 

Since its initial release in Miami, Florida, the flagship 420 Outrage has garnered a great deal of attention, and was recently named Boating magazine’s 2015 Boat of the Year. 

“The 420 Outrage marks a new chapter in the Boston Whaler legend,” said Boston Whaler President Huw Bower. “The level of sophistication, comfort, performance and capability is unparalleled—truly, this is a boat like no other.”

However, business owners and leaders should avoid rushing to get a valuation in circumstances where the need is not clear.
