Boston Whaler made a number of 16 foot boats. On the other hand, their 16 foot boats are considerably wider than the Aluminum boat I mention. Not a good comparison. However the 15'4" boat is only a bit wider and slightly shorter making a better boat to compare to. Perhaps if you had looked closer, you would have noticed.

The way I see it, Boston Whaler represents the "Gold Standard" in cored hulled fiberglass boat. So its inclusion makes sense.
