Description

BOSTON WHALER 1971/1972 OUTRAGE 21(Photos taken 6 JUL 18)
For sale is a beautiful 21', yacht quality, classic Boston Whaler Outrage, the rarest, most sought after, most classic model of all the classic Whalers. This boat is all original, well taken care of for almost half a century, and believed to be one of the finest examples of this famous boat still in existence. This is a genuine Boston Whaler with all its original components in place. The existence of this particular boat is not previously been known, nor discussed, in the online Boston Whaler community.
This boat is not a restored previously poorly maintained boat, either from an individual or a marine restoration company. The boat is not restored at all, but rather simply maintained and upgraded to be in better than factory new condition. The hull topside has never been removed and re-assembled. It has never been bottom painted, never top side painted, both low cost repair alternatives. All gelcoat and non-skid floor is original from the factory, in excellent condition, maintained in high gloss. Over the years, unwanted holes from screws and accessories in the floor and side gunwales have been filled and re-gelcoated. The entire bottom of the boat has no nicks, chips or scratches, and with original high gloss gelcoat. This is literally a like new hull right out of the mold. Even the original bolts at the rubrail, holding the top casting to the hull casting, are original and with no corrosion.
Both boat and engine are 100% freshwater use their entire life, trailer kept, stored indoors, and only used in the short summer season of Lake Michigan. There was a 20 year period where the boat was stored, not used at all, and in the last 5 years has only been used about 10 hours.
There are far too many excellent details to describe here. The photos show many of them, but suffice it to say everything on the boat is original and/or new top end yacht quality fittings and equipment. Everything you see, you get, including flags, fender system which includes four Perko chrome on brass rail mount rod holders, console and under gunwale courtesy lighting, Whaler tan battery box and 1000 CCA battery, etc.
Almost all systems, components and accessories on the boat are brand new in anticipation of this offering, and are the best you can buy. This was Boston Whaler's original build philosophy which has been maintained. Included is modern, all new, electrical apparatus, wiring, and lighting, specially designed concealed mount hydraulic steering, all new engine controls, rigging and full instrumentation, Ritchie premium Navigator binnacle compass, VHF radio, SS rail fittings, new seat upholstery by Anderson, and new canvas by Wm Mills Co. All of the original teak and mahogany is finish sanded, highly varnished, and with newly caulked highlights and seams. The full length mahogany under gunwale covering boards have been correctly re-installed, with all of the factory nails, a poor original detail, eliminated. These boards are one of the most beautiful and distinctive interior features of this model.
The semi-classic engine is a 1993 2.5 liter Mercury 200, with approximately 295 hours since new, not re-built, not re-manufactured, with original high gloss factory paint. It is mounted on a brand new black anodized aluminum height adjustable jack plate. Compression is 119-122# across all six cylinders. The oil injection system works perfectly, as does power trim, with no bleed down. Propeller is an SS Mercury Laser II in 23" pitch with anti clutch-rattle hub. Two removable on-deck stern quarter fuel tanks, connected by a 4 way selector valve, hold 19 gallons each. A third selector location and installed fuel line is included for a 24 gallon tank under the Pilot Seat, as in the Whaler Montauk. The engine is very quiet running, extremely powerful, and accelerates the boat quickly, will loaf along at 3000 RPM and 30 MPH, and with a top speed estimated to be 55-60 MPH. There is plenty of power for larger group on-board outings, water skiing, tubing. etc.
The 2004 Continental tandem axle trailer carries the boat easily, on 10 premium Stoltz polyurethane keel rollers with SS shafts and stabilizing side bunks. The frame is all welded structural steel channel design, then hot dipped galvanized, no corrosion or rust at all, no squeaks, and in like-new condition. Most bolts and U-bolts are stainless steel, the tires are 14" radials, practically brand new. Brakes are Tiedown Mfg "G-5" SS rotor disc type, will aluminum calipers and new ceramic pads, recently replaced. This 4400# capacity trailer is in condition for any cross country travel. Many other owners of these boats use this same trailer, a perfect fit for the hull, and extremely easy to launch and retrieve.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the few remaining, all original, non-molested examples of this most famous Whaler model, basically a 47 year old new boat. Other "Ribsides" in this condition simply do not exist. Most of these remaining classics that superficially look good are actually old neglected "project" boats, purchased for low cost, and repaired, then topside painted over by restoration shops or "do-it-yourselfers". Almost all are done with "damage covering" bottom paint and with not anywhere near original design and equipment specifications. They often are re-fitted with homemade/aftermarket interior furnishings. With this classic boat, it should be "Less is More", clean, uncluttered and all original. This boat maintains that objective.
If you are a long time classic Boston Whaler owner or afficionado, and have been looking for one of these rare boats in turn-key condition, this could be the only opportunity you will ever have. And if you keep this boat maintained, it will be an excellent investment. But if your boating lifestyle requires keeping a boat in the water and bottom paint, this is not a boat for you, as bottom paint and the resulting exposure to weather, will immediately cut the boat's value, and your investment, in half. If you need a boat for extensive installation of offshore fishing equipment, this is not the boat for you. Fishing gear clutter, downriggers, trolling motors, baitwells, etc. and the damage to the boat their installation causes, also decreases the boat's value. This is a boat to be well taken care of, enjoyed and loved for recreational boating with family and friends, fresh or salt water. It is an American Classic to be preserved, with American power. Classic boat shows are even an option for presenting this boat. This classic Whaler should continue to be kept on its trailer and stored indoors, or lift/dry stack stored under cover. With its yacht quality original design and appointments, it is also suitable and appropriate for use as a classy Megayacht tender.
No matter where you go with this boat - classic boat show, upscale marina, dockside restaurants, a launching ramp or even fuel stops, people will be drawn to it and admire the boat's condition and unusual design. Not many 46 year old boats look this modern after all those years, but this one does.
Contact through Ebay Private Message only until a sale is actually made, or I can determine you are an interested buyer. Then we should talk. A long list of detailed information on boat is available to a serious buyer (in my determination) on request. A $5000 down payment is required within 7 days, payment in full within 21 days. The boat is currently stored indoors in Northeastern Wisconsin, within a reasonable radius of the area between Green Bay and Milwaukee. $4000 of deposit will be returned if you decide within 21 days not to proceed upon your own inspection or professional survey.
