17' Wahoo Offshore; excellent alternative to a Montauk. This one is in very nice condition and just needs a motor and some bottom paint. Includes Quicksilver/Mercury controls as well as a very nice 'E Z Loader' trailer. Located in NE Pa., convenient to I-84, I-81 and I-80. Asking $3500. Kingsteven18@yahoo.com

Oops, forgot to mention that the boat is a 1994.

Does this boat have a livewell? What is the max HP rating? Do you have a close-up picture of the center console? Also what's the overall lenght of the boat and trailer? Thanks - Joe

It's a true 17', 81" beam. The hull is 890lbs, rated to 100hp. The teak hatches/seats in the stern should be a battery box starboard and small livewell on the port.

I'm looking for a 1990 brochure or diagrams, although I believe the hulls were the same design for this period through '96 and just manufactured in different shops after they changed hands.

I believe the hull design is referred to as "scowled", and not "smirked", lol.

I did find a pdf of the 1994 brochure, and your are correct about the spec's and max power. What WAHOO listed on the feature sheet is a "livewell/cooler aerated" this is optional. I also need to know the overall lenght as it sits on the trailer to know if it would fit in my garage. I have owned a few of these boats over the years, currently I have a 1990 16.2 Striper http://s166.photobucket.com/albums/u117/josephp732/My%201990%20Whaoo/ that I have restored and re-powered with my son. I have also had a 18.5 Sportfish and two 2100 Offshore's.

The biggest problem with these is the built in gas tanks, they will start to leak and it's not fun replacing them.

It's kind of funny, in the 1994 brochure Wahoo! is still an independent boat builder listing their address in Ashland, VA. The 1995 brochure proudly states in big bold type on the cover Wahoo! By Marine Group, A Brunswick Company. “Leading the way” A Brunswick Company 150 years - Since 1845, and the address is Murfreesboro, TN. The tag line is “Engineered and Built like no other Boat in the World”. One more thing if you look in the current Overton’s Mater Catalog in the boat cover section the picture next to the Boston Whaler covers is from the 1990 Wahoo! brochure.

Bo Neato's info is correct, except the hatches are white starboard. It measures ~19' to the transom plus another foot for the platform/ladder, but the engine would extend past that. I'll send you pictures of the console. Thanks. Steve

The boat was actually an ex Fire/Rescue/EMS boat; I had to remove the decals.

That's funny, I saw my first when our local FD bought one and made my purchase of another with confidence based on their experience using it. Never had a chance at the first one, though, as it was picked up by one of the several firemen interested in it.

Good luck, somebody is going to get a lot of boat for their money with this one.

I'm getting ready to sell my 16.2 Striper. So I guess a new project could be in the works.... Can you email me, and I might have gotten this from you already - just can't find it, the overall width and lenght on the boat including the trailer...plus any other photo's. 1-10 how do you rate the overall shape of the boat? 10 being the best. - Thanks, Joe

That's the link for all of the photos that I have; they will enlarge when clicked on. I keep the boat elsewhere and recall going there to get you those measurements before. I can go there this weekend. If you need any other particular photos, let me know first.
