About Boston Whaler Boats 180 Dauntless
The stylish 180 Dauntless® builds on the Dauntless family tradition of outstanding versatility for all kinds of boating activities – serious fishing, watersports or comfortable cruising.
It’s loaded with standard fishing features, such as eight rod holders and casting space for multiple anglers, including a full-width aft casting deck that converts to a bench seat. Options like the livewell in the front console, reversible pilot seat with livewell and the fishing package with a trolling motor panel make the 180 exceptionally well-appointed for fishing.
For watersports, the standard 135 Verado®, along with the optional ski pylon, can pull a skier with ease. For added convenience for both fishing and watersports, our optional, patented All-Activity Tower® includes features like rod holders, a tow bit and ski and wakeboard stowage. A day of cruising is comfortable and fun, with seating for eight people, while everyone kicks back to enjoy the Clarion® stereo. The optional sun top helps keep passengers cool and dry. And, typical of Whaler®, there’s plenty of storage for everyone’s gear.
Ample seating includes a forward console seat with backrest and seat cushion, with an insulated livewell inside. The full-featured console includes ergonomically placed instrumentation, a large electronics mounting surface, a new stainless steel steering wheel and a storage compartment with door. The reversible pilot seat features a locking backrest and a slide-out, carry-on 54-quart cooler.
Getting into the boat is easy via the integral swim platform with telescoping ladder. The stern seat’s backrest folds down to become a full-width casting platform.
