The new model of the Boston Whaler 345 Conquest is full of delightful, innovative surprises

The folks at Boston Whaler tell us that the new model 345 Conquest has been designed with lots of customer input. Further, they say that she is built and equipped for veteran boaters, those who know what they want and need to go offshore safely. When comparing express fishboats, remember that the 345 Conquest is fully equipped. Don't compare her on price with other boats in class that need to be loaded up with options to get the job done. All of the needed equipment has to be paid for one way or the other...

Pretty unstoppable and everyone’s comfortable

The Conquest 345 is a little big boat with some serious offshore ability. Three outboards, a generator for autonomy, 1500 litres of fuel, 170 litres of water, a hot shower and barbecue. This is all you need to stay away for a long weekend.

You can reel in the sea miles and fish this Conquest as wide as you desire, through the night for broadbill swordfish, on the sea mountains for bar cod, around the canyons for blue marlin, and chasing big Southern bluefin around the current lines down south...

The thinking man's cabin cruiser

t's in the rough stuff that Whalers set themselves apart. Fast or slow, we didn't get pounded, doused by saltwater, or cut in two by the brisk breeze. At fast cruise speeds, we could have kept going into the fray and cruised to another port in the marginal conditions. The 345 feels like a big boat.

At 2190rpm and eight knots I noted a distinct wave pattern, no smoke and a nice smooth engine hum as the twin 15in three-blade props whirred away. At 3000rpm, the boat jumped out of the water and, with trim tabs applied, we held a plane at 10kts. Heavy-weather cruise at 3700rpm returned 14kts...
