2020 Boston Whaler 130 Super Sport
THE UNSINKABLE LEGEND!! THIS BOAT WILL NOT SINK!!!! FOAM FLOATATION A vessel can be kept afloat using solid installed foam. Recall the Boston Whaler commercials where a tender is cut into thirds and remains afloat with a person in each section? However, the drawback to using installed foam in a cruising boat is quantity or volume of foam needed to keep a flooded displacement hull afloat. SO IMAGINE THE FOAM BOSTON WHALER ADDS TO MAKE THIS CLAIM!! A 30,000-pound boat, (a common displacement for a 45-foot to 50- foot passagemaker) would need nearly 500 cubic feet of solid foam within the hull to keep it from foundering when flooded. Fitting 500 cubic feet of foam into a yacht's hull would be a feat, requiring every nook and cranny to be filled since 500 cubic feet equals a space nearly 20' long, eight feet wide and three feet high. To keep such a boat afloat, foam three inches thick inside the entire hull would be needed, and that would only support the boat to its gunwales.
Define your own experience with the 130 Super Sport®. Thanks to its modular design concept, you can choose from a long list of options and accessories to customize the boat to suit your preferences (fishing, utility, pleasure or tendering). At its core, unsinkable Boston Whaler construction means the 130 Super Sport delivers a soft, dry ride–for boating that’s simply more enjoyable and reliable every time.
