No cracks or marks on the boat or motor.

The boat has always been covered in boat lift or garage.

Factory bimini top and travel cover , both in great shape due to the fact that they were seldom used.

Orginal 1997 tralier also seldom used but is in average shape.

New battery and bilge pump.

May be able to transport for a fair fee.

Actually my former 17' Newtauk is up for sale. 1986 hull fully restored with all new Hall's cushions, Custom Mills mooring cover, etc. 2004 Alum trailer custom made by LoadMaster and a 1999 Suzuki/Evinrude 70hp 4 stroke bought as leftover and installed in 2002 on a jackplate. He's asking $10,900 and wants $10k for it. If boat is as nice as it was 2 years ago when I sold it to him(he says it is nicer) better grab it. located in Venice area just north of Pt Charlotte. E-mail me for his #

It was sold to a young couple living on the water in Clearwater. They are selling the Scarab and want to do more fishing and (crabing) said the young lady.

Thats what I love about the Boston Whalers, you can buy one and enjoy it for four years and make a grand when it sells and I still get to keep my gps. Thanks El President (Nick).

I'm new to the 17' Whalers, but am in the market for one.
What is the difference between the Newtauk, and the Montauk? Your old boat looks like a Montauk in the photo.

It is the Newport hull with a Montauk console. Basically a Montauk with a bolt on deck that surrounds the hull topsides and supplies some storage and footing. Mine was a factory made custom ordered boat. Probably only a few dozen ever made from the factory...mainly due to being expensive.

Are the green hull decals stock or after market. Are they
still available?

Thanks again

They were custom made by Magic Brush so yes they are still available. I do all my whlaers in different colors...just to be different. My current 13' was done in navy blue. The Newtauk decals were custom by me...half a Newport decal and half a Montauk decal, looks factory though because I used factory decals. There is also a matching green Mills cover, gree bimini and the trailer has matching green tire cover etc.

Thanks for the reply, do you have any contact info for
Magic Brush. I'm new to this Whaler game, having just
bought a 1994 Montauk which I am picking up this weekend.
Can't wait. I've been running and maintaining a Classic
1965 25 Bertram since 1969. She is a better boat today
than she was when new.

How did your boat run with the Jack plate on it? Any problems having one on a Montauk?

Would not own an outboard without a jackplate...EVER!
