Re: Blue Decked Whalers

OP here. Mea culpa for not taking pictures. We own a [1982] Montauk so this one caught our eyes as we walked by the showroom. I don't recall if it was just the deck or the entire cockpit that was light blue. My best recollection is the entire cockpit. This is a beautiful boat and I'm surprised the d...

2020 170 MONTAUK II in Whalertowne Blue

They had a [2020 170 MONTAUK II] on display with a [custom gel coat color blue hull liner]. [A sales representative] said] there were only three ma...

Re: New to Boating and New Whaler Owner

I left that job for a land based law enforcement career and was away from boating for [more than] 20 years. I then bought a 17' Montauk (same as my old patrol boat- love it!) and had to take a saf...
