Canadian Yachting magazine was on hand at the Miami International Boat Show, for the global debut of the new 360 Outrage. The boat headlined Boston Whaler’s display. The 360 Outrage featres a full suite of new technology including the latest in propulsion, power and connectivity. The 360 Outrage appeared alongside 12 other boats, including the family-favorite 170 Montauk, the award-winning 320 Vantage, and the flagship 420 Outrage.
Boston Whaler president Kris Neff and executives from their design and engineering departments introduced the new 360 Outrage.
Maximized use of space is a defining aspect of the 360 Outrage. The bow has been configured for improved fishability and easier access to the windlass/anchor, along with more usable storage and a more open feeling. The Outrage’s cockpit is now more customizable, thanks to a new transom prep station that can be optioned as a summer kitchen with a grill and solid-surface countertop. Rear-facing cockpit seating is ergonomically refined and features a flip-down work surface, perfect for snack preparations or rigging lines.
Access to the hardtop reflects Boston Whaler’s evolved design sensibilities, with the hardtop ladder placed at the centerline with a large hatch opening. Boaters will feel confident while climbing to the upper station. An optional hardtop rack adds convenient storage for paddleboards and other large toys.
Below deck, a cleverly designed cabin features a deployable berth that flips up to secure belongings and reveal extra storage, including rod holders galore. An enclosed wet-head with Vacu-Flush toilet lends additional comfort on long days.
The 360 Outrage handles beautifully with standard triple 300-hp Mercury Verado engines with Joystick Piloting (JPO) but available Mercury upgrades include: triple 450-hp Mercury Racing engines or twin 600-hp V12 Verado engines. The intuitive helm station features a standard 16” Simrad display, which work in concert with an available Seakeeper gyrostabilizer ensuring comfort in rolling seas.
The 360 Outrage also offers remote monitoring and control for key systems made possible by digital switching technology. An included key fob enables owners to power up batteries as they approach the boat, turn on and adjust light modes, deploy and retract the sunshade, among other useful functions. The 360 Outrage also features Mercury’s new 1st Mate Marine Safety and Security System, a CES® 2021 Innovation Awards Best of Innovation Honoree.
Notably, the 360 Outrage is also available with a state-of-the-art Fathom e-Power system. Powered by marine-grade lithium ion batteries, the system is an energy-efficient alternative to fuel-powered generators. The Fathom e-Power system provides a convenient way to enjoy all the features of your boat for a longer, quieter and more eco-friendly day on the water.
