Boston Whaler's engineers applied customer and dealer feedback in designing the 285 Conquest, crafting a versatile luxury vessel that can only be described as a masterpiece. The 285, rebuilt from the hull up, improves on its predecessor's helm design with unobstructed captain's visibility and three distinct hardtop-windshield system variations: an open windshield, an enclosed windshield and a pilothouse. The port lounge seating is raised for better forward visibility, with an innovative "flip and slide" backrest with filler cushion that allows for forward or aft-facing configurations. Other comfort features include an optional cockpit sunshade and cockpit table. Hardcore anglers will appreciate state-of-the-art Raymarine electronics options, a 30-gallon livewell, and a decked-out starboard prep station. With improved performance and handling along with refined styling updates, nothing looks or feels better gliding across the water.


The all-new, thoughtfully appointed 285 Conquest offers premium comfort and features for active day trips and overnighting. Improvements abound, including better helm visibility, an enhanced port lounge and more storage throughout. The elegant cabin sleeps four with a plush forward V-berth/dinette and a mid-cabin double berth. Optional HDTV, a deluxe galley and private head deliver the comforts of home. When you're not entertaining a crowd in the generous cockpit, pursue big game---the 285 conquest is fully equipped for offshore angling. Three hard-top options and numerous innovations make the 285 the perfect boat to seize the moment.
