Dis Boston Whaler make CONQUEST models with a sterndrive? I did not see such in the 1998 catalog.

I have one (the boat and the catalog). What would you like to know?

No questions...just an observation. Very rare for Whalers - it might make an interesting Cetacea page to see how the motor was installed beneath the deck. Looks like most demand was in the Great Lakes region for this configuration.

I have one too - a 2000 Conquest 23. Mine has a 4.2l turbocharged Diesel in it for added rarity - at least from a North American perspective. I believe they made this model mainly for the European market where diesel is a third the price of petrol due to tax differences. I'll see if can get a piccy.. it's a pretty big engine.

I own a Conquest23 with twin outboards. The bilge is deep enough to accommodate engines for stern drives, but I would estimate you'd lose some deck space as well. Is this the case?

I haven't been on an outboard Conquest in a while, but I think the amount of cockpit space in the Conquest I/O is about equivalent to the outboard model with the stern seat in place.
