Re: 150 Montauk v. 158 Edgewater v. 15 Key West

I looked at all three brands when I was shopping for a new boat last year, including a 158 EdgeWater at a decent end of season sale price. EW and KW certainly nice but I just kept coming back to the Montauk and I can't even entirely explain why. Just a gut feeling sort of thing. Quality on the Whale...

Agreed, can't argue with you there, except to say stainless steel rub rails enhance aesthetics at the expense of function :) I'll deploy fenders at launch and load to try to minimize unexpected rail-to-stationary-object interfacing.

What were they thinking? The standard rubrail is better and stock at no charge. I'm curious why the standa...

Hi all - thanks for the responses, I appreciate the advice. My order would be a special order, not a boat on the lot, so I may lose some leverage there. But my dealer is just a few minutes drive from my home and seems very decent; to me there's value there. Considering one other brand, but there's t...

Range of Discount on New 150 MONTAUK

I'm looking at a 2018 150 Montauk and about to start getting quotes. I understand Whaler is a premium brand. What is roughly the range of dealer discount on the boat? Don't get into specific configurations or options. For example if it's widely known that nobody ever gets 20-percent off a Whaler, I'...
