I located a 1981 17' hull with a 115hp johnson. The pilot seating is a mahogany bench type with a small console on the starboard side. No other seating in the hull but appears to have a pedestal seat base hole in the front area. Is this a Striper model? It is a model 81E, BWCE6643(?). The hull is in excellant condition. The motor is a 1981 model too. Can someone give me an estimate of its market value and rarity? Thanks, Russ

Just bought a 1979 17' Newport with '79 90HP merc and galvonized trailer all in good to excellent condition for $4,000 in Jacksonville, FL. I think that was a good deal. Usually running about $4,000 to $6,000 for this type whaler.

What you have is a 1981 17' Sport model. The 17’ Sport model is essentially the same as the Currituck model that it superseded. It is not particularly rare.
These are not nearly as desirable as the Montauk and thus are generally worth less on the used boat market.
With a 1981 motor and a decent trailer I would estimate this boat to be worth $3,000 to $6,000 depending on condition and where it is located.
