While I continue to look for a 15-17' whaler, I think a 15' center console may be my top choice. I understand Whaler no longer
makes a 15' in the recreational line,but the 15 is made with a side console in the Alert
series and a center console in the Justice
series,but the hulls are different. I don't
want to look like the marine police, but I
would be interested in comments from the board as to recreational use of the commercial line.

Welcome to the forum Jersey Jim ---
They both float both the commerical and the recreational line don't yeah know --- chuckle
The commerical is heavier built and has that nice greyish white color --- sort of cool I think as I see the state fellows cruise up and down the Maurice river, NJ --- they have a couple of Guardians, and as soon as they get pass our marina they flog the heck out of them --- my tax dollars at work ---
Either would do nicely --- but as you know big bucks for a "commerical" one ---

Jim, they will produce the boats in any color including classic beige (for a small fee). The boats are made to order, so the option list is as long (or short) as your wallet can handle. I own a commercial boat and like the grey, it is easy on the eyes and a breeze to maintain.
If you order a commercial boat, make sure the hull is the right one for you. Selling a commercial boat requires finding another diehard with lots of cash (everyone likes them but few will actually fork out the dollars for a tough OPEN boat.
I owned 3 outrage 22's before placing my order for the 22 guardian. Make sure it's the right boat for your family before you dive into it. The used market may be the way to go if you intend to move up in the near future.

Do you have your heart set on a new boat? I saw a 15' Justice advertised on boat trader for $10,500. Looked good in the photo.
The only hesitation that I would have about ordering the commercial boat new would be the resale. The Justice is a beefed up 15' Dauntless which was made from I think 1994 to 1998. It seems to be a buyers market for these boats and a nice used one fetches about 10K. If you paid considerably more than that for a new Justice it would seem that come resale time you would lose.
Its a nice little boat, runs great handles nice and cuts a chop.
