I currently have a 13.5 whaler and am considering buying a 15 I have not seen yet. What are the advantages of the 15 compared to 13.5 whaler?

Better ride in a chop, more unique, can use more horsepower, faster. has more room. Most all of these same advantages apply to a 17' hull as well.

What bristol says is correct, and that being said...don't discount looking for a nice 17' Montauk...I've seen a few located online that look nice but one can never tell until you've seen them up close and personal...what price range are you looking at? That might really dictate which direction you ultimately go...if it's just cruising a small lake or river, that's one thing but if you're looking for something to fish the bays and inlets/inshore in, the bigger hull might be a better fit...

Good really can't go wrong with either hull...but make sure you check it out or have someone do a survey on it, it's cheap insurance...

To give you an idea of the VA beach area, you should be able to pick up a decent (not excellent condition) 15 sport for $3,500 to $5,000. A decent 17' Montauk will cost you $7,000 to $8,000.

13" is comparable to a CJ7 Jeep in ride. The 15 is more like a Grand Cherokee.

Ive not owned a 15 and sometimem think that would be a nice boat to try on for a ride, Ive not to this date. I know the 1964 13 I have is a nice boat. But I have heard so much good about the 15, that one Ill try one on:) Were I boat and how I boat, I use the nantucket for the Big water, and the 13 for the creeks. Im sure that 15 soundslike it might handle a bit of both. I know you dont want to be out on a large 7 mile river in a 13 in rough water, I know thats not for me...but it would be intersting to see what the 15 will do....

Id say go for it, they are nice noats from every pick Ive ever seen:)

Good Luck, henry
