Not every boatbuilder is willing to cut one of their boats in half to prove its seaworthiness. Yet, that’s what Boston Whaler did, and continues to do, to drive home the point of the Unsinkable Legend. However, before a Whaler can be cut in half it’s built to the highest standards, and that starts with a tried and true lamination process.

The foundation is a proprietary closed-cell foam that fills all of the space between the hull and inner liner. This Unibond construction provides increased buoyancy, and Boston Whaler’s skilled team of boatbuilders keeps a close eye on the process as each boat is filled. Some of them have been building Whalers for 40 years.
