The cutting-edge Boston Whaler 330 Outrage (33’1″ LOA, 10’2″ beam) delivers a remarkably soft, safe and dry ride as well as a comfortable and intuitive user experience. The 330 Outrage features a precision-engineered variable-deadrise V-hull, with full-length hard chines and lifting strakes, creating a noticeably smoother ride and predictable handling. With twin 350-hp engines, the 330 Outrage tops out at 52 mph.
The boat is well equipped for both fishing adventures and offshore cruises. In the bow, a large forward-facing lounge with flip-down armrests is a prime perch while underway. Lift the seat to reveal cavernous storage below with room for large items such as buckets, fenders and dive tanks.
Plush bow seating opposite the lounge makes for a terrific social zone and conceals extra storage space for PFDs, ropes and towels. Anglers will appreciate the bow’s gunwale-mounted rod holders, too. In the cockpit, an aft-facing couch converts to form a leaning post and houses an optional 40-gallon livewell. Another standout feature in the cockpit is a new portside dive door, which provides easy dock access or, with the removable ladder in place, makes entering and exiting the water a breeze.
