My dealer sent out an offer of full credit of what I paid for my Montauk 170 last year towards a Nantucket 190. Not a bad deal of zero depreciation in 12 months for a BOAT.

We looked at the Nantucket tonight and were impressed but the sticker still shocked us.

You'd have to buy a bigger truck. I would too. Jim

It sure doesn't sound like there are a shortage of the 190's, as I heard rumoured earlier this year....

Uhm… Montauk for Nantucket… Sounds tempting… The 190 is a nicer, more substantial boat but I like the simplicity and versatility of the Montauk. I don’t have the opportunity to go offshore often and, if I did, I would skip the 190 and get something even more substantial. Sounds like they are taking advantage of people’s two-foot-itis.

Besides, I have only owned my boat for a couple of months and already have a bunch of cash invested in non-removable equipment. I’d rather buy more equipment than pay more interest for a bigger boat.

With that offer I'd be willing to bet the dealer is asking full 'list' price. It may not be that great of a deal.

Last summer I only had my Montauk 170 a few months before two foot-itis took a hold of me and and I traded it in for a 2000 18 Outrage. I didn't pay what a new Nantucket costs but after some accessories and a new 2004 LoadRite trailer it was close.

It all comes down to what you are most comfortable with. The Outrage was a better choice for ME, not necessarily everyone. The Nantucket is a great boat especially if you have a little wiggle room with your dealer. See if you can get a test ride, you'll know right away if you want to make the investment. Being in a Nantucket in the Atlantic ocean last summer while I still owned my Montauk helped me make my decision to move up.

Where: Russo's Marine in Medford, MA.

How much: Full list, non-negotiable. Base Nantucket was ~$30,500 with 115 2stroke carb. They wanted $41,000 for the display model (150 Optimax, fishing, cushions, and swim platform.

No credit would be given for any Montauk 'upgrades' made by myself.

They quoted me around $36,500 outfitted like the display model but with the 115 EFI 4stroke. This would be $13,000 upgrade for two feet. I think we are going to wait for the Eastport.

And yes, I would need a bigger truck.

$41,000 seems slightly high. Sea Island Marine in Beaufort, SC priced my 2004 Nantucket w/150 opti, stainless prop, fishing package, swim platform, cushions, BW trailer and bimini for $37,000 including tax and license.

They also said that that I could have a 18 Danutless w/135 Opti for about the same. I was not in the market for the Dauntless but that seems like a damn good price.

Only way I trade my 170 Montauk for a 190, is if they throw the Dauntless is as well!

FYI, there is a new 2004 Nantucket with opti 135, trailer and many options now on ebay for $33,500. (buy it now) or maybe less at auction price. It is item 2485480762. You may want to consider buying this one and selling the 170 on your own, there is lots of demand for the 170. Just a thought.

IF you take a ride on a Nantucket, you will be very impressed with it IMHO. Ive had Mine sine May, been out 3,4,5 times a week and can't get enough Whalering on her. I didnt get the 150, got the 115 that comes with the package, and had enough left over for the 188C Garmin and Icom 502,Bow Dodger, sun package, fishing package, bow cusion, etc... and it wasn;t near 40 thou!!!Im sure the 17 is a nice boat, but theres no comparrison to the Nantucket. Its more than the 2 foot itis, this boat just loves the water and the 115 gets me up on plane lickity split! Sounds like the 150 is whats cousing the difference in price...??? But this Nantucket is a sweet boat with anything on her:))
