The New 205 Eastport
First-class cruising, economy fare.
Coming for the 2005 model year ? a remarkable new 20-foot cuddy that promises to be one of the greatest values in Whaler history. The all-new 205 Eastport? is the first of our Legend Series of classically designed Whalers to combine cuddy comfort with a large, open cockpit and an exceptionally roomy walkaround, at a price that?s as attractive as its styling. The standard 205 Eastport with a 150-horsepower Mercury Marine OptiMax® engine is priced as low as $41,900 MSRP (price does not include freight, dealer prep, taxes, etc.).
The perfect cuddy cabin for family cruising and fishing, the 205 Eastport comes loaded with features and with the superior materials, fit and finish you expect from an Unsinkable Legend. Small enough to be easily trailered (and available as a boat/motor/trailer package), it?s big enough for you and your family to enjoy all kinds of waterborne activities.
You?ll be amazed at how much cockpit room you?ll find on a boat of this size, plus the amount of recessed walkaround space ? especially at the bow, where you?ll appreciate sure footing and a more secure feeling when you?re docking or anchoring. The Eastport boasts features of far more expensive boats, such as an aluminum-framed, single-piece, curved glass windshield for better visibility and durable service, plus plenty of storage and creature comforts.
The ergonomics are outstanding. From the comfortable bucket helm seat, you?ll find gauges and switches mounted in a high position for easier viewing. And if you want to complement the standard Mercury® SmartCraft? deluxe gauge package, large flat panels to the port and starboard of the helm offer ample room for more electronics.
There?s seating for everyone, with a helm seat, companion seat and two aft quarter seats with backrest bolsters and grab rails. And when you want to get out of the sun or bunk for the night, the lighted cabin offers a comfortable v-berth with concealed porta potti. Just pop open the portholes with screen and enjoy some breeze below.
And you?ll keep the fun moving smartly all day long with the reliable power of the standard 150 XL Mercury OptiMax engine, with options available up to 200 horsepower. Of course, in the Whaler tradition, there are loads of options for you to design your boat your way
