Can anyone tell me if these boats are available to the general public. Also any other info such as
Is this the same hull as the 17 Montuak , or thicker maybe?
How's the seating set up? Side console with steering & controls or what?
What years were they made, are they still being sold?
I'm already considering my next Whaler,

Same hullform as the classic 17' hull (but heavier).

Check out the whaler website:

If you mouse over where it says "Alert" in the product line up at the top you can look at stats for the side console and tiller steered models.

The same hull is available with a center console as the Guardian 17'.

There are some threads out there concerning buying from BW's Commercial and Government products division, including info on the Alert.

OK, for info about buying BW Commercial & Governmet hulls check out this thread:
It has a bunch of links to other threads on the subject.

Specifically on the Alert, take a look at this thread:
Specifically lhg's 12-13-2001 post and the responses to it.

I recently purchased (and am currently outfitting) a 2001 17' Alert. I do not proclaim to be an expert by any means; however, I will be happy to talk to you further about the boat.
