I want to thank everybody here on the forum that has guided me through the last few weeks. The valuable info on your posts made it possible to make an intelligent decision. We put down the deposit today after our test ride on the Dauntless 16. We bought the 170.

Bravo Zulu...
... Mission accomplished and Pleasant and Good Fortune ahead... I hope to be a very Proud 170 appreciative Waterman in April... The Dealer said they are going to see her April the 10th, but I am sure I am to wait for the new Pate Tank to be installed... I am guessing the 15th of 20th of April!!! Does that sound correct...

A good friend of mine is seriously considering a 170 montauk.. What was your total cost? What was included. She called dealers and BW, but still no one gave her enough concrete info on price range.

lc - There's an excellent reference article on this site about the 170, including prices and options for the 2002 model. Check it out:

As it may say in the article... It is a surprising 4,000 to 5,000 dollars less than last year... As I see it; it looks like there is going to be a high demand for them this year!!! The Forum has many good articles about the 170... Dan

Congrats, you made a great decision. I bought my 170 last april and have loved it.

You gave a great description earlier of how she plains! It really does just slightly elevate and you are off.

FOLKS; to me this is the reason the 90 horse motor is performing more like a 115. The ease of planning.

It pulls my 200 pounds up on skis quickly without even trimming the engine down! Not to mention the huge ride improvement over the old montauk.

Are you saying the 90HP 4 Stroke works and puts out as well as the 115 EFI???
I read in a Boating publication that the 90 HP has 97.4 Cubic inch deplacement as compared to the 115 HP, which has 106.2 Cubic inch displacement...
The only thing I thought about was and /or is the EFI seems to me that it might have a better longevity over a carb system..., but for an up grade cost of $2500.00 I wonder if it is worth it???
April 10 is when my 170 is coming and it sounds like she is a true blue larger riding haul and am looking forward to her...

Montauk now sleeps in my 20' garage with 6" to spare. Dealer swaped out trailer for a Continental Swing tongue with surge drum brakes. Came with dodger, isenglass windshield, 4 post extra large Bimini, and the first aft rear bench seat made for the new 170. Dealer congratulated me on purcashing the most expensive Montauk their dealership has ever put together!!! I have to admit it is some sight that in place of a car there...imagining such a small package will soon be plying the waters of the gulfstream.

Is the rear seat a whaler thing or third party? Could you please post or email me the cost(of the seat) either way, I didn't even know there was one coming out.

The aft bench is a product of Armstrong Upholstery they do the cushion work for BW they are in the same vicinity in Florida. The seat is the first one made it can easily be removed by two screws on side freeboard wall. We paid $1500. A little steep but because of our particulaar situation we took extra care in designing the proper seat configuration due to my 8 year old with Downs Syndrome. We also had a dodger made for the same reason.The aft area seems a comfortable place to sit and the forepeak cushion area covered with the dodger gives plenty of room to sit up, lke a little private tent area.
