I recently signed a P&S on a 2004 Montauk. Before buying this boat, I solicited a number of quotes to find out what was a fair price.

All these quotes were received with no_haggling involved and I believe they are for a turn key 2004 boat including freight and prep but do not include taxes and registration fees. Most if not all quotes included a coast guard package. Remember that NE freight is much more than freight to a southern state so these quote are likely higher than southern state quotes. Also, these quotes were solicited during November, the NE 'off season'.

Hopefully people will add to this thread to give perspective buyers better bargining power and give them a good understanding of what people are paying in their market area.

MA: Russo Marine

We have a 2004 in stock with a 90hp 4-stroke (2,753), Fishing Pkg (700), and bow cushion,(310), the price on the boat is $23,762.00. This includes the trailer, USCG equipment, docking lines, fenders, anchor, anchor line and one year membership to seatow.

NJ: Ocean Beach Marine Centers

I have one in Inventory with a 4 Stroke, Fishing PKG, Trailer.. List $25,004.00 Selling Price $22,320.002


They had the best price I found.

$21,386 for a 2004 Boston Whaler Montauk with 90hp 4 stroke mercury. They also had an instock 2004 whaler with 90 4 stroke, fishing package, swim platform, bow cushion, and bimini. I wasn't interested in many of these options but I believe I was told $22,600.

NH: Shep Brown's

The base 170 Montauk, motor and trailer with no options other than an upgrade to a 90 4 stroke, freight, dealer prep and a safety pack is $21,800.

I have 4 in stock, all configured in the following manner with your choice of color, red or blue. Boat, 90 hp 4 stroke, trailer and the following options: swim platform, bow cushion, fish package, freight, dealer prep and safety pack. The price is $22,985.


I recall their prices were very competive. I think it was $21,500 for a 2004 Montauk with 90 hp 4 stroke.

[Expresses low opinion of one of the dealers mentioned (Russo), a common chant in his mantra.]

The advice I would add to bargain hunters on a new boat this month and throughout the off season is to consider a leftover 2003 model.

Hey, just my .02. :)

[Nota Bene (for Ryan): When digging a hole, it is best to throw the dirt away from yourself, so that it does fall back into the hole and land on you.]

Having recently purchased an 2003 170MT from Russo's (Medford), I would advise board members to look elsewhere to make a purchase. My rants have been made clear in earlier posts. Bottom line...they promise a lot, lie to your face, and don't deliver.

This is the best place to buy a whaler in New England and also the niciest dealer just ask for Skip Birbarie. He will match anyones price.
