For sale is my 1988 Montauk with 2000 Johnson Ocean Pro 90 HP and 1998 American trailer.
A classic Montauk with beautiful teak work which always draws compliments at the boat ramp or beach. Looks and runs fantastic. Currently posted on Boston Craigslist.
Many improvements in 2006:
Fuel efficient boat.
Boat is located on north shore of Boston.

Nice boat - and seems like a decent price!
I was looking for something similar but hoped for newer power. Can you tell us a bit about this engine year and type? Is it clean and quiet, or more like the older outboards I am more familiar with (1990 was my last one!).
How about the hull bottom? It looks like it was painted a few times - are there cracks, glazing, etc. in the hull bottom?

The 2000 Johnson 90 HP is a 2-stroke engine with VRO oil tank located in center console. Not sure how it would compare to a 2-stroke from 1990 but it seems to run much cleaner than a 1989 Evinrude 2-stoke on a friend's Montauk. Seems to create very little smoke but it does burn oil, as it should.
I bought boat in 2005 and have never had even the slightest issue with the engine. Always starts and runs flawelessly. Top speed is just over 40MPH on GPS. Only selling because I'm buying a larger Whaler and wife won't let me keep both even though I have reservations about selling the Montauk....its been a great boat for us.
You are correct about the bottom paint. Prior owner apparently did not know about ablative paint as there are multiple layers of the hard stuff which can flake off. Boat has not been bottom painted since spring 2006. The gel-coat under the bottom paint does not appear to have been scored (rough sanded) prior to the original coat of bottom paint and each year I consider stripping it and polishing the hull back to its original state as I think it would clean up real nice with relatively minimal effort, albeight messy work. Soda blasting to remove the bottom paint would also be an option if you wanted to remove it. There are a number of companies offering that service in this area.
Feel free to email me if you want to take a look at the boat in person.
