I found this site on the web while munching on a sandwich at lunchtime. It looks pretty complete. Anyone agree or disagree with the listing?

We should have a link to that site or make our own. I got bored half way through but saw this:

11' sport was not around in 1958.
18' Newport?
Cohasset II was 73 only I believe.
No mention of inflateables.

Now 2 questions, what was a 13' Trophy and the Special Edition?

I think I was in an 18' Newport some time ago, same setup, just the 18 Outrage hull. I think it may not have had a built-in tank, not sure though.

That is cool, my original post to this forum was a qustion about if anyone had actually ever seen an 18 Newport, I have pics in one of my catologs, but had never seen one in person.

OK now my question about the list, what is a Minot (and don't say sixty seconds!)

Nifty site, if you speak Italian.

I wonder what it costs to buy a Whaler in Italy.

A minot is a katama without he windshield, and drivers seat back, and maybe the two front buckets. It's in the 1969 catalogue.

OK, OK, you guys have drawn me out. I've been working on this (with Pete) and was going to roll it out soon, but here it is as it stands. Still some work to be done, but I can't let the Italians get too far ahead!

Thanks Jimh....very neat to see it laid out in "black and white". I think I speak for all when I say we appreciate all your hard work.

Now I need to make flash cards and study.

You are off to a great start and it's nice to see there are not the mistakes here that are on the Italian site.

Nice work! It's just what this site needs.

The Italian site at first glance looks pretty complete. There certainly was an 18 Newport and the Cohasset II was available in 1972, 1973 and 1974 according to Chuck Bennett at Boston Whaler. It was the Cohasset I that was only built during the first year, 1972. (The Cohasset I was the model with a single pedestal seat for the driver in lieu of the RPS)

Bigshot is correct that there was no 11' Sport in 1958. I suspect a simple typo there in the form of transposing the initial year of production of the 13' for the initial year of the 11' which was 1973. It is interesting to note that jimh and Pete Elke have repeated the error in their table, hmmmm....

jimh & Pete - great & thanks.

The dope on the 1996 17 Outrage is: length 17'6", beam 7', draft 12", weight 1700 lbs, capacity 1820 lbs, swamp capacity 2600 lbs, person capcity 7, max HP 150, Min HP 90, shaft 25", fuel capacity 56 gal.

This information is from an undated (I suspect they all are) BW brochure I picked up when I bought my boat. --- Jerry/Idaho

I do not remember seeing a cohasset in my 74 catalog but will look.

Now why did Jim copy 1958-1995 on the 11'?

Again....what is a 13' Trophy and special edition?

Tom W Clark posted 03-27-2002 11:15 AM ET (US)     Profile for Tom W Clark  Send Email to Tom W Clark     

The Trophy model was an "odd-duck" kind of a model, sort of a mini bass boat thing. Here is jimh's description from the reference section ( ) of this site:

"Intended primarily for fresh water fishermen, the Trophy added tandem swivel centerline seats with upholstered cushions and backs mounted on a fiberglass frame. The boat was piloted from the front seat using a stick steering mechanism. An electric trolling motor could be mounted to an optional safety frame."

The special edition was in honor of the 25th anniversary of the 13's debut but how it differed from the Sport 13 I can not remember.

I have a Boston Whaler history dated 10-3-97 that came directly from Boston Whaler. It lists an 11 Sport as being produced from 1958 to 1995. Looks like Whaler made the typo.

jimh, don't forget the 18 Outrage SD/WD ;)
peteinsf posted 03-27-2002 01:32 PM ET (US)     Profile for peteinsf    

An 18 Whaler Drive? What do you mean SD/WD?

Didn't see that one...


Tom W Clark posted 03-27-2002 03:29 PM ET (US)     Profile for Tom W Clark  Send Email to Tom W Clark     
No Whaler Drive on the 18's, but there were some full tansom 18's with the OMC Sea Drive

It would by fun to retro one of those with a Gill bracket...
Tom W Clark posted 03-27-2002 09:47 PM ET (US)     Profile for Tom W Clark  Send Email to Tom W Clark     
Oh I forgot, the full transom 18 was available with a gill bracket. There is a cetecea entry of a full transom 18 that had a Sea Drive but was retrofitted with an Armstrong brakcet I think.

On Cetacea page 50 you can see a photo of an 18 with a Sea Drive It is the 13th photograph on this page and it is in the background.

hauptjm's own Armstrong bracketed boat can be seen here:
