Has anybody seen or know of any Boston Whaler brochures from 1958 through mid 60's? 1967 is the oldest I've seen.

I'd like to ask also if anyone knows of a source for a 1988 yr. brochure, the year of my Whaler?

Ebay is a good source of old brochures but don't expect to buy them cheap. The best go for $50 to $75.

I have a 1968 brochure and some from the mid-late 80s (1975 on the way). Would be glad to answer specifics and/or E you stuff from them.

Thanks Mr. JBCornwell. I'm pretty much up on the specs as they are available here and other places, just thought it would be neat to see the orig. brouchers, pictures and any unique info. they may offer as a keepsake. Also sometimes they have gals in swimwear driving the boats!

Is anyone interested in a 1994 Commercial Products brochure. I have two and may part with one.

Bigshot - Is your 1966 brochure a one page (both sides) or a multi-page?

I stil have the original 1958 and 1959 brochures from the 13' only days. Does anyone else have them? Actually I am only missing 3 or 4 years out of the 45 or so years they have been built. Dave

Did the '87 Outrage 18 come with an 'Owner's
Manual'? My '93 Montauk had a nice bound
manual which I believe covered the 15',17'and
19'. I'd love to buy one (photo copies OK) if
anyone has an extra.

So far I've found the guys at Vintage to have the most complete offerings. It's still hit or miss depending on what he has at any given moment. Try here

I have the 1 sheet and the full line brochure with squall etc.

If that place can fetch those prices on outboard literature....I'm rich!

Is it possible to add an section with old Whaler brochures (in pdf-format). Members who want to share can add their brochure scanned in a sertain format and do not loose their orginal.

Copyright rules might be a problem but since we are not paying for that info....might be ok.

For what it's worth...

I have several older Whaler items for sale.

A 1986 B/W catalog. Shows the Outrage 27 CC on the cover.

A BW Options catalog. Red cover. Shows the goodies.

If you are interested, drop me a line.

Bigshot, copyright has nothing to do with
whether you are paying or not. Copyright
is just that -- "copy right", in other words,
the right to copy.


firebrand posted 03-12-2002 10:37 PM ET (US)     Profile for firebrand  Send Email to firebrand     

The B/W Options Catalog is from the mid to late 1980's.
It features, on the cover, from top left clockwise a 27Full Cabin with tower, OR 25, a 15SS Ltd. and a Revenge 25 W-T.
In great shape!

Let me know!

Then since we are "scanning" is that a loophole? We are not Copying...we are cloning:)

I recently saw an ebay auction for a catalog like the one firebrand describes go for something like $40.00. There is definitly a people willing to spend some crazy amounts for items like these. Hey, if there's a market, go for it.

Well, since eBay has been mentioned, I thought I would offer it to "the bretheren" for less than what most sell for on eBay.

I'm asking $40 for the full line catalog and $35 for the Options catalog.

I have seen items like this go for more when somebody's gotta have one to match their Whaler. I myself, no shame felt here, fell victim and had to have one for the 1975 Newport 16 and spent some (serious or stupid, depending on your personal viewpoint) coin on a choice copy. Wife thought I was nuts, but then again, she decided we should get the Newport. Not one to argue, I went along and am still enjoying the ride.

In fact, she (the BOAT!) just came out of the barn for a Spring Cleaning today........

That 1965(actually a 1966) catalog went for $100 clams. Damn....I even have a price sheet.
JBCornwell posted 03-14-2002 11:52 AM ET (US)     Profile for JBCornwell  Send Email to JBCornwell     
It would have been about 67, Bigshot. It jumped to 100 with 6 seconds to go (as you suggested).Rats!

Firebrand: Okay on $35 for the Options Catalog. Email me an address to send the check to.
