New 180 Dauntless Hull 2020 Model

Mercury F150 EFI 4-Stroke Engine

Priced from:  £59,602 Inc VAT


The stylish, all-new 180 Dauntless® builds on the Dauntless® family tradition of outstanding versatility for a wide variety of boating activities – serious fishing, all kinds of watersports or a day of comfortable cruising.

It’s loaded with convenient standard fishing features, such as eight rod holders and plenty of casting space for multiple anglers, including a full-width aft casting deck that converts to a bench seat. Optional equipment like the livewell in the front console, reversible pilot seat with livewell and the fishing package with a trolling motor panel make the 180 Dauntless® an exceptionally well- appointed fishing vessel.

For watersports, the standard 135 L4 Verado™, along with the optional ski pylon, can pull a skier with ease, and the standard swim platform with telescoping ladder allows easy re-entry into the boat. Aday of cruising is comfortable and fun, with seating for eight people, while everyone kicks back to enjoy the Clarion® radio, a CD or music from your MP3 player.

The optional sun top helps keep passengers cool and dry while enjoying a day outdoors. And, typical of Whaler®, there’s plenty of storage for everyone’s gear.
