A best-selling boat in her class, the Boston Whaler 305 Conquest is a top-tier express whose large cockpit and versatile layout make her ideal for fishing, cruising, or entertaining. The 305 is a refinement of the Boston Whaler’s popular 295 Conquest (1999–2003) with a larger cockpit, updated interior, and a redesigned helm and transom. With nearly 60 square feet of space, the 305’s cockpit is big for a boat her size. The helm deck has a portside settee for lounging, and the helm seat features a flip-up seat cushion for standup driving. Standard features include a hardtop with rod holders, integral bow pulpit, 24-gallon lighted livewell, foldaway stern seat, in-deck fish boxes, cherry interior trim, bait prep center with sink, cockpit shower, fresh/raw-water washdowns, cabin rod storage, cockpit table, cushioned bow seat, cockpit bolsters, tackle storage, and trim tabs. The backrest on the helm deck lounge is a nice touch. Below, the 305’s midcabin interior sleeps four and includes a full-service galley with Corian counter, enclosed head/shower with VacuFlush toilet, flat-screen TV, and convertible dinette/V-berth forward. No lightweight, twin 250hp Mercury outboards top out at close to 40 knots.
