An impeccable 255 Conquest Boston Whaler. This one shows as new and has been boathouse kept.
It comes with new twin Mercury 250HP engines, which makes this absolutely the first boat to the fishing grounds each and every time! Upgraded Garmin navigation equipment and truly getting a boat that looks and shows as new for a fraction of the price.
Boston Whaler’s 255 Conquest is the perfect boat for people living on the west coast. Those in the happy position of having moorage space are going to find plenty of appeal in this boat. Especially people keen on off shore fishing with a bit of day cruising thrown in.
The 255 Conquest with its 2.66M beam, the 255 Conquest gives an impression of being a larger boat than its 26′ 11′ (LOA inc. bowsprit).
It handles and steers like a smaller boat. But it rides and deals with the sea as if it were bigger. I’ve tested boats 10ft longer than a Boston Whaler 255 Conquest that banged and bounced badly over choppy water more than this boat does.
The Boston Whaler’s formidable (foam filled) structural integrity and a sophisticated hull shape (Boston Whaler call it (Accutrack) featuring a distinctive curving chine and fine bow, means that the new 255 Conquest is amazingly quiet over the water.
Inside, the 255 Conquest is set-up as a day boat. A dinette easily seats two couples or a couple plus kids.
At night, the dinette converts to a generous berth for two. The cabin doors are bi-fold with a big cutaway into the bulkhead to allow for entry without bumping your head; and they can be securely locked. There’s a small sink against the cabin bulkhead, rod racks along the sides, insect screened portholes and hatch.
In the aft bulkhead the 255 Conquest has a transom door on the starboard side for access to the fold away boarding/swimming ladder. There’s an economy size live well in the port corner.
The cockpit’s self-draining deck has huge (drained overboard) fish boxes below decks. Upholstered bolsters along the cockpit sides allow good leg support.
Plus, there’s a two-person rear-folding lounge that stows away into the aft bulkhead when folded up.
Non-slip moulded into the deck and walkways around the cabin works well. Other safety features include a bow high rail and hand holds on the hardtop.
Holders for eight rods are arranged around the cockpit. Then there’s four rod racks along the cockpit sides, another four across the back of the hard top and the four racked inside the cabin. Enough for even hardcore anglers! There’s also a raw water wash down for the cockpit for easy cleaning while fishing.
The effortless digital throttle and shift controls, plus Teleflex steering, made for ease of handling with the 250 Mercury’s fitted. It really did make this boat seem like a smaller one to operate.
Whalers are designed, built and tested to stand up to almost anything. Heavy equipment, kids, even chainsaws “Whaler cut one in half to prove it would still float”. They’re rock-solid, stable, dependable and virtually trouble-free. They require minimal maintenance, are agile, responsive, dry riding and unsinkable. The concept is simple. But the technology and craftsmanship behind it are a bit more sophisticated.
Marine architects, ergonomic engineers and designers use the most advanced computer-aided design system in the marine industry to create a three-dimensional image of an ideal boat. A five-axis digital router turns that electronic image into an absolutely precise pattern, which is perfectly symmetrical from side to side (something ordinary, hand-carved patterns can never attain).
This one truly is a special one, book your showing now and see this boathouse kept Whaler!
The 255 Conquest is ready to take to the water when you are. It is loaded with storage, plus conveniences like a cockpit shower. Step through the lockable cabin door and you’ll find more overnight comforts than you’d expect on a boat of this size, including opening screened portholes, a wet bar sink with faucet, a portable head with deck pump-out and a dinette with table that converts to a double berth. And its 150-gallon fuel capacity lets you cover a lot of territory, or you can choose to drop anchor and stay for the night.
Additional Mercury options available. Twin and four-stroke engines available.
