2004 Montauk Prices in New England

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.

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. :)

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.
