I am selling my Boston Whaler Montauk. The boat is located in Southern NH, near the MA border.
The Montauk hull is a 1983, in good overall condition, and sits high in the water (no wet foam). There is some cosmetic gel coat "flaking" in a few areas along the waterline at the rear sides and transom. These gel coat issues are surface only and are not structural - they were caused recently by bottom paint remover being left on too long. It is easily repairable, but gel coat repair is not my cup of tea.
All teak has been completely restored, and the boat has been garage stored ever since. The pilot seat cushion has been reupholstered. The new 72 quart Igloo cooler seat includes an aftermarket cushion.
The motor is a 1999 Yamaha 50 HP four stroke, with power tilt and trim, in very good condition. This engine is light weight and balances the boat nicely. Fuel economy is 7 to 8 mpg at 19 to 20 mph cruising speed. Top speed is 30 to 32 mph with two adults on board. The motor controls, wiring harness, and digital gauges are all new Yamaha.
The trailer is a 1998, Performance brand, welded and hot dipped galvanized. The axles have the Shure Lube greasing system. The keel rollers are polyurethane. The tires are new Goodyear Marathon radials, including a Marathon spare tire. The lights are Dry Launch brand. This is a very rugged trailer for a Montauk.
The entire electrical system (including bow and stern light wires) was replaced using marine grade tinned copper wire, waterproof shrink tubing and crimp terminals. All components are Blue Seas Systems brand. There are two group 24 batteries (one new this year) under the console with selector switch. All wiring is conservatively sized, with spare fuse terminal blocks for addition of electronics.
The boat includes a new Standard Horizon Phantom VHF with Digital antenna, Rule bilge pump, Ritchie flush mount compass, and Marinco 12V accessory outlet. The steering is a new Teleflex no-feedback helm and cable, with the original stainless steel steering wheel.
I saved any original Whaler parts that were replaced, and they are be included in the sale.
I am selling because I don’t have enough time to use the boat, and I no longer have a tow vehicle. Asking price is $6,900 or best reasonable offer. Thanks.

That is a nice, clean looking boat. The price is right and the 50 hp is no speed boat but will move her along. I've been in a Montauk with a 50 hp and was surprised at the performance. The only thing that I can suggest is that a fresh coat of bottom paint would do wonders for esthetics and maybe speed the sale. She is a fine looking boat in all other respects. Good luck with the sale.

How many hours are on the motor? Does the boat have a Bimini top and any canvas covers or dodgers? There is no E-mail way to contact you so that may be a good thing to post. Thanks
