Countless boaters have launched lifelong boating lifestyles, zipping across the bay or lake on a nimble, unsinkable and nearly indestructible Boston Whaler.

Boston Whaler’s redesigned 160 Super Sport and smaller sibling 130 Super Sport make that more appealing and attainable than ever.

Including new standard transom extensions—call them swim platforms—flanking the outboard motor, racy new lines, and a tip-forward watertight and lockable console compartment, these fun boats have had major makeovers.

The premise of the Super Sport family, which also includes the smaller 110 Tender and 110 Sport, has long been that boating should be no fuss, just fun.

Cool!

The new family-friendly boats are easy to park, store and trailer on land, as well as simple, safe and fun to operate on water. Good yacht tenders or workboats, they’re ideal for family fun. Especially now, redesigned from the keel up for even more comfort, versatility and style.

Retaining trademark Boston Whaler rigid, durable, unsinkable construction (the fiberglass hull and deck are bonded and then injected with foam at high pressure) and powered by reliable Mercury FourStroke outboards, the Super Sports have stainless-steel side rails the length of the boat for added safety and security, as well as no-feedback steering to make control at the intuitive, side-console helm station a delight.

Standard power is 40 hp on the 130 and 75 hp on the 160. The larger boat will accept up to a 90 hp Mercury for a little extra watersports snap. After all, a powder-coated ski tow structure over the engine is an option.

Style points? Just take a look at a new profile the company calls “rakish,” a sleek look you can boost further with new graphics options including rear-accent hull colors.

For the standard helm bench seat, you can have added cushions, single or double pivoting bucket seats, or seats with fixed backs. Another seating option is a cushion-topped cooler to port of the console and/or cushions added to the bow seats. But when you remove the bow-seat cushions, it becomes a nonskid casting deck.

A pair of rail-mounted rod holders can be added by the dealer, which is good idea—these are handy fishing boats.

On either boat, options include full rails, sun top with boot and Lexan windshield for the helm console. Spilt bow rails available on the 160. Boston Whaler

Standard are portable fuel tanks under the seat (two 6.5-gallon tanks in the 160, with an option to upgrade to 19 gallons with the 90 hp, and a single 6.5 gallon tank in the 130), boxed battery with hold-down strap, navigation light unit whose base serves as a rope guide, anchor locker and—with all but the engine-reduction option to 25 hp in the 130—Vessel View capability.

Love exploring the skinny waters and back bays? The 160 draws just 10 inches and the 130 even an inch less.

And whatever the activity, at day’s end, cleanup is a breeze: just hose and go.

Both Super Sports, by the way, come on galvanized trailers; the 160’s trailer has a swing-away tongue.

A Boston Whaler Super Sport, whether a 160 or 130—both agile and exciting, spry and seaworthy—remains a nearly ideal way to begin boating.

You need never outgrow its thrills, no matter how many bigger boats you acquire!
