Is the Conquest 255 the same boat as the 235, just renamed, or is it a totally different boat?

The boats are completely different. The 255’s hull weight is roughly 1300 lbs more than the 23. The 255’s hull is also 3 inches wider and about a couple of feet longer. Go to to see the 255. If you want to see a 23 conquest: “bsmotril” is a proud owner of a beautiful 23 and he has gifted us with many excellent pictures of his boat on his own homepage. The link in his CW profile.

There are many 23 owners here that can answer any 23 questions

Seems like the 235 was a popular boat. Any ideas on why they quit making them?

Using my new "The Boston Whaler Catalog Collection 1958-2003" CD (now you too can be an "expert") ;-)

The 23' Conquest specs from the 1997 to 1999 catalogs:
LOA = 22'7"
Beam = 8'6"
Draft = 15"
Weight = 2,900 lbs.
Swamped cap. = 4,500 lbs.
Persons cap. = 9
Recommended H.P. = 225

In the 2000 and 2001 catalogs there are the following differences:
Weight = 3,650 lbs.
Persons cap. = 12

The "all-new 255 Conquest" info from the 2002 catalog:
LOA = 26'11"
Beam = 8'6"
Draft = 16"
Weight = 4,900 lbs.
Swamped cap. = 6,100 lbs.
Persons cap. = 14

In the 2003 catalog the only difference is:
Beam = 8'9"

My 1998 23' Conquest capacities plate is rated for 12 people. Funny how the manual is different.

Difference between 2002 & 2003 255 Conquest is 3" in beam. Thats due to the fact that for 2003 Whaler measured to the outside of the rubrail to rubrail pick up the extra 3".
