Montauks were not made in 1964. If you are painting the inside that will detract from the value of the boat as well. 16,000? Way overpriced.

I say paint her up and get top dollar for her. Sherwin-Williams has some great colors to chose from. May I be so bold to suggest #6271 Expressive Plum for the interior. The exterior could be splashed with #6219 Rain. Color is so creative and it's simple and lots of fun. I'll bet you could get 20K + for her with the proper accessories. Here's a ton of ideas that could fill hours matching the perfect interior to hull combo.

Seriously, the only way you'd see $16K for a 1960's era 16' hull is if it were all original and MINT....I MEAN MINT condition AND....
You had a documented full history of the vessel and it served some kind of honorary or noteworthy duty (like aboard a presidential yacht as a tender).
You have a bunch of things going against you on price:
Essentially, you have reduced the boat to the combined value of a 196X Whaler hull and the motor.
I'd say $4K is closer to the ballpark you are staring out at.
Probably not a "flippable" boat.
You are in florida, so you know the market is flooded. Ask any boat broker what he'd get for it. That will bring you back to earth pretty quickly...it's a scary market right now for sellers (but pretty attractive for buyers!)
For a history of that hull and the models built upon it, I suggest you visit the reference section of this fine site:

I had a decent but dry and original 69 hull with 1995 Merc and I got $2900 last week for it in FL. Even if it has a mint paintjob(awlgrip) and a retro mohagany console/seat and the Merc is a 4 stroke, I doubt $10k...more like $7k. $16k would never happen unless a museum piece barn find and even then you would have to find the .0001% of the population that desires it.
