Boston Whaler Conquest 285 Fishing Boat

Currently the smallest in the Conquest line-up, Boston Whaler’s 285 offers complete weather protection, a roomy cockpit, and the ability to overnight at the canyons in comfort.

Boston Whaler 285 Conquest On Water Fishing

And like every Whaler, this is an unsinkable boat. 

Critical Fishing Features 

  • 26-gallon transom livewell 
  • Four flush-mount gunwale rod holders, three transom rod holders, and four hardtop rocket launchers 
  • Cockpit coaming bolsters 
  • Bait prep station with sink and stowage 
  • Stainless-steel cockpit toe rails 
  • Under-gunwale rodracks and cabin rod racks for four rigs 
  • Dedicated five-gallon bucket stowage 
  • Two in-deck fishboxes with pump-outs 
  • Spreader lights integrated into the hard top 
  • Fresh and raw water washdowns 

Angling Advantages 

  • Performance is better than the average fishboat – a 40 mph cruising speed (at 4500 rpm) gets you to the fish fast, and economy running at this speed is around 1.6 mpg. Combine that with the 200-gallon fuel capacity and you get a range pushing 300 miles including a 10-percent reserve. 
  • Unlike many cabin boats in this class, the 285 Conquest has relatively wide side-decks ringed by tall, welded stainless-steel rails. That makes going forward and fishing from the bow a piece of cake. 
  • The sliding, convertible backrest on the passenger’s side seat turns into an aft-facing bait-watching seat for trolling. 

You want a new cabin boat that offers a full cabin, excellent fishability, top-notch performance, and brings the legendary Whaler reputation to the table? Then it’s time to check out the Conquest 285.
