Defender in boats destroyed (7)


I believe the answer is:


'defender' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'in boats destroyed' is the wordplay.
'destroyed' indicates an anagram.
'inboats' is an anagram of 'BASTION'.

(Other definitions for bastion that I've seen before include "Strong defender" , "staunch supporter" , "Defence - in boats (anag)" , "fortress" , "that's fortified" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
