Redesigned from the keel up for 2019, Boston Whaler's new 130 and 160 Super Sport deliver major comfort, versatility and style.

The all-new 130 Super Sport and 160 Super Sport have arrived! Available with a variety of seating configurations, features and options, these family-friendly skiff models are easy to customize for favorite activities including watersports, fishing, exploring, and more.

"The new 130 and 160 Super Sport are designed to make every outing safe, comfortable and hassle-free," said Jeff Vaughn, Boston Whaler's Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Service. "For decades, boaters have chosen the Super Sport because of its low-maintenance durability, unsinkable safety and incredible ease of use. We're excited to give this popular series a fresh redesign that adds some great new features and brings the boats even more in line with consumer preferences."

Effortless operation is a hallmark of the new 130 and 160 Super Sport. Each model features an intuitive side-console helm station, complete with two full-sized drink holders that keep hydration within reach. A standard Mercury® FourStroke engine — 40-hp on the 130 and 75-hp on the 160 — delivers impressive fuel efficiency and reliability, reflecting Mercury's passion for innovation and commitment to providing the highest quality propulsion on the water.

The Super Sports arrive "Exploration-Ready," with a precision-engineered hull and an extremely shallow draft (10" on the 160; 9" on the 130) that empower boaters to navigate big lakes and small, hidden waterways with equal confidence. A rakish new profile gives these sporty performers a sleek, stylish look, which can be enhanced by new graphics options including several rear-accent hull colors.

Comfort has also been maximized. Optimal use of onboard space makes the 130 and 160 feel much larger than their respective lengths. The boats feature new dual aft swim platforms and a stainless-steel aft swim ladder, extending the fun all the way to the water. Storage has been improved, as well, with a new lockable storage compartment in front of the console to keep valuables secure.

A variety of available seating configurations allow boaters to tailor the layout to their needs, including a cooler seat with cushion for extra drink storage; roomy bench seating with cushioned backrests; and an ergonomic bucket sport seat option. An optional bow cushion turns the front of the boat into an inviting place to lounge.

For watersports fans, the 160 Super Sport is available with a powder-coated ski tow or ski arch, an optional 90-hp Mercury® engine, and an optional 19-gallon fuel tank upgrade. Additional options include a sun-top with boot and stainless-steel fittings, and a removable windshield, both lending protection from the elements.

"We feel confident that boaters are really going to love this next generation of Super Sport," said Vaughn. "The 130 and 160 maintain the load-and-go readiness and easy trailerability of their predecessors, while employing strategic design changes and enhanced features that make them better than ever."
