Every boat is a compromise, as we who buy and own boats know. Nonetheless, Boston Whaler hit all the right buttons for a multipurpose boat when designing the Realm series of dayboats.
The dayboat moniker is apt, since these vessels can certainly handle a crowd , providing fun and comfort, for an entire day out on the water. Of course, the boat can also weekend a couple in fine style, with its cabin amenities. Want to fish, dive or haul the kayaks? A Boston Whaler Realm is absolutely a great ticket to ride.
