Looks like a Sea Ray with that colored insert on the hull. Hope that is just a prototype drawing and not what the real boat will look like.

Yes, the 32 Outrage is on display at the NY Boat Show. I saw it last Saturday. Its certainly a sight to see.

Looks like an over-grown Laguna.

You all are judging a boat on a sketch on the web with ethe exception of JoeyP. I saw the beast last weekend and it may have contemporary lines, but it is equiped very nicely. I think some of you should concider that it is possible to have a rugged, safe, durable boat that people other than the "classic" camp finds attractive.
I have looked at most of the 30 to 33 foot CC's and this one has them all beat. This is based on features and the fact that it the only boat in this class that is UNSINKABLE!
Come on guys, open your minds and you just might find something you like.

I have an open mind and have been a Whaler dealer in the classic era and worked for one in the new era. I don't care what year they were built or designed, they are Whalers.
My comment was about the colored insert on the hull, this makes it a non Whaler to me. The solid color hull has been a Whaler tradition. Like I said it looks like a Sea Ray.

It says that standard power is dual 225 OptiMax engines. Note that the optional power is dual 250 EFI or dual 250 OptiMax XS.

From the drawing that is one TALL console.
Are there any decent pictures in the flyer?

Anyone that doesn't think that is sweet is....you're just from another planet!! (Personal opinion, of course. Don't slam me.)
I'm not selling my Montauk but I'd still like to have one of those in the field next to the Montauk ready to take to the ocean in a heartbeat.
C'mon guys. How can anyone fault a 32 Whaler?
If I had the $ (Lots of $$$$$) I'd own one tomorrow.

Does anybody know the price range of the 320?
My guess (with power 250 OptiMax's): $175,000
Am I close?

It appears that the link for the 320 has been removed from the Outrage page. The page is still there, you just can't get to it unless you know and use the url that kglinz posted.

Barry: The link isnít on the Outrage page. The link is on the Home page of "Whaler.com" in the upper left hand corner.

Well it should be! ;-)
Wild T -- You are probably close on the price. I believe I read where the base price on the 295 Conquest is around $141,000.

Boat Show price was 149,995. This included a full compliment of Raymarine electronics withe dual 10" dispalays including radar, GPS chart plotter and VHF. The boat is self was very coplete with a FG Hardtop.

I like the bopat as well, and think that it and the new 27 to some extent will help Whaler with it's ride reputation and thereby increase sales/popularity. I do not like how the cap becomes so wide as it tapers towards the transom as this makes colored hulls look stupid, i.e. many of the Donzis, and is also normally thinner than the real hull, thereby allowing for a highly abused section of the boat to be in a location to be damaged or at least incur many stress cracks as all boats I've seen with this design have done.
Looked at the spec sheet and it says 8500# dry no motors!!! That's crazy. the 32 Regulator is only 7400# and it's the heaviest in it's class. I'm no fan of the featherweight boats, but this is a little much and will probably be seen as a dog.

I don't think that weight is out of line at all. A 30'x9'6" Pursuit CC is 8200#. A 32'6"x11'2" Stamas Tarpon CC is 9250#. In the real world, I'll take brawn over a lightweight tournament type boat offshore anyday. I have fished on both a Fountain 29, and Contender 28, both light for their class. The ride out in 4-6 TX gulf chop is exhilerating, but punishing on the knees and back. And once you start trolling or drifting, the snap-rolling of those hulls will tire you out quickly. Unless I were a pro SKA fisherman, I'll take a boat on the heavier side of average for real world comfort in the Gulf of Mexico.

I think its great that Whaler puts out a HUGE outrage. Love to see one in person.
With all that weight, is that enough HP?
Imagine what a CPD unit would weigh?
When they say it has twin 150 gallon fuel tanks, do they place them side by side or front and rear, or stacked?
