Boston Whaler's Dynamic Cabin System on the all-new 345 Conquest earned accolades from the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), receiving a 2014 Innovation Award in the Furnishings and Interior Parts category during the annual Miami International Boat Show.

Introduced in October 2013, the 345 Conquest marries rugged, professional-grade capability with amenities. Its Dynamic Cabin System features a large dining table in the forward berth with seating for six adults, which converts electronically at the simple push of a button to form a plush queen-sized bed. Housed out of sight when not in use, the halves of the bed join in a smooth, scissor-like motion, as access stairs on both sides are revealed. Blue LED lighting from underneath lends a stylish glow.

Elsewhere in the cabin, a large starboard settee converts from a bench to a bed, while salon skylights allow natural light to fill the entire area. Storage options including rod racks and wood cabinets. Other amenities include a galley, a graceful head and an entertainment center up in the mid-cabin with additional seating and sleeping space.

The Innovation Awards, organized by the NMMA and judged by Boating Writers International (BWI), recognize products that best meet criteria including innovative distinction from other products currently being manufactured; benefit to the marine industry and/or consumer; practicality; and cost-effectiveness. The 2014 Miami International Boat Show ran from February 13-17, and the NMMA Innovation Awards were presented on the first day of the show.
