Just became aware that Whaler has announced the introduction of a 150 Montauk, using a 150 Sport platform and the 170 console.

Thanks, Moe. I missed the earlier announcement. Peter

Moe and I (and others) have agreed in the past that it is very important for all of us to use the proper name of the boat on this forum for several reasons.
1. So we all know what boat we are talking about
2. So when using the search engine, the correct boats will come up in the search
In this case the boat in question is the Montauk 150 or 150 Montauk
In the case of the post classic Montauk, it is the Montauk 170 or the 170 Montauk.
Using the proper names this way, the boats cannot be confused with any other model..
We see so many people state that "I have a Montauk"...
I think everyone gets the point..
PS.. I am not singleing you out here PF, just trying to help everyone else understand the potential problem.

Don't forget about Montauk 18

You are correct... I had seen one of those advertised once and also saw Tom's post back then...

To the best of my knowledge, all "post-classics" are referred to by number first, followed by name, i.e. 150 Sport, 170 Montauk.

Look in the 2003 catalog for the Montauk 170 or 170 Montauk...
The catalog lists it as a 170 Montauk but the side of the boat is written:
Go figure... I have seen other models like this also. To me it doens't matter how Whaler wants to do it...
As long as we all know what we are talking about... There is one thing I would never do, and that is call the newer Montauk 170 a Montauk 17... It possitively is not a Montauk 17... I don't care what anyone else tries to tell me... Period... It is NOT a Montauk 17.... I think you agree on that...

There is one exception....
The transition year for the Montauk 17 to the Montauk 170... 2002...
The Classic Hull Montauk 17 was renamed for just a few months to the Montauk 170.... again.... Go figure... To me this boat is still the Montauk 17 because of the classic hull.... I won't argue want anyone wants to call this one....
