Boston Whaler has been in Croatia since 1996 but firstly let’s take a look at why it’s such a great brand.
In the present boating world, Boston Whaler is one of the very few remaining real premium boat brands. It is not some artificial brand or instant product but real value with a strong and impressive history and innovative and creative future.
It is by far one of the most famous boating brands in the world. The legendary unsinkability, technology and innovation are just one part of the Boston Whaler “charm”. Certainly, the driving force behind the brand was its maker Richard Fisher, a Harvard graduate. He created the first model in 1956 and established the company in 1958. Using fiberglass and styrofoam in an innovative way, continuous tests, trials and errors, sea trials resulted in the legendary unsinkability. The original idea was to create a sailboat. But by switching to motorboats, at the suggestion of his friend, a move in the right direction was made. From 1996 the Boston Whaler is part of Brunswick Corporation and is now manufactured only in Edgewater, Florida. The specificity of its manufacturing process and the mold does not allow for the boats to be manufactured anywhere else in the world.
In addition, the top quality did not escape the authorities and the US Coast Guard uses the vessels to monitor and surveil the coasts. They were even used during the Vietnam War by the US Coast Guard for patrolling the rivers.
