Re: Montauk 17 Value Range

I just sold a 1986 Montauk with a 2002 Yamaha 90 2 stroke with low hours and verified good compression for $9,500.00. I would not call the boat pristine by any means, but a solid, well cared for example with typical crazing, bumps and bruises you would expect of a 32 year old hull. The trailer was t...

Re: Appraisal: 1984 17 Guardian

I just sold a 1986 Montauk with 2002 Yamaha 2 stroke for 9.5k in Florida.

It’s hard to tell from these pictures how my boat compared in terms of condition, but it was pretty good. I was pleased with the price I got for it. I would place this one at around 6-8 simply because of the power.

Re: WTB: Combined Sidelight and Chock

FYI the combined sidelight/chock sold by Boston Whaler currently for the Montauk is of inferior design to the original, so there may or may not be a problem if you went through Boston Whaler. The concern with the combined sidelight/chock for the Montauk is that the wire lead to the bulb fixture inte...

Re: Anchor for 15-footer

You probably know this, but be sure to use a significant length of chain. Some say the chain is more important than the anchor itself. I use a relatively small anchor on my 17, with about 12 feet of chain. This is around Mayport, which experiences significant title flows.

Re: 1989 Boston Whaler 17' Montauk

Beautiful boat. However, I would consider dropping your price a bit due to the power. A 50 HP in a yamaha is underpowered by almost half, and most purchasers would be buying for the hull only, would flip the engine, and re-power.
