Author Topic:   Build Your Whaler Option on Whaler Website

I just checked the Whaler website and found that the "build your whaler" option is not available. I suspect that Whaler is updating the pricing on one or more of their models. With the boat show coming up this weekend, I wanted to double check the Montauk 170 pricing before I sign the deal. However, I was still somewhat interested in the Montauk 150. Perhaps Whaler has received enough negative feedback from prospective customers to finally come up with a nationally advertised MSRP which adequately reflects the value of a 15 foot boat. Some of the numbers reported are just plain crazy.

Boat prices seem to range between $1k and $15k per foot, depending on vendor. From Carolina Skiff quality to CABO.

The "Build Your Whaler" option does disappear from time to time. I never connected it with them working on price changes, but it makes sense now that I think about it. I had always assemed it was a technical glitch.

It's back! The "build your whaler" option is back. Since I am interested in the 150/170 family, I only check those but base boat pricing is as follows:

Sport 150 $16,371
Montauk 150 $17,287
Montauk 170 $22,520

These prices do not include the current promo of $500 off the Sport 150, and $1,000 off the Montauk 170.

I find it odd that they offer a livewell option for the 15' Montauk, but not for the 17'. Any ideas?

Big price increase for the 190 Outrage.

base $38,500ish

with 150 Verado, bimini, swim ladder, electronics, leaningpost cover, console cover, bow cushion, and coolerseat/backrest....: $46k

This is pretty close to how my boat was set up, but without a $1,000 Mills bow dodger. Take $2,000 off for a rebate, but add freight and prep.

Someone said they could buy the 190 Outrage loaded for $35kish all day long about three weeks ago. Do it!

Now will someone buy Tom G's Outrage?

Yeah Right 35 thou with all that..Sal, I say go find one!!!!! MY set up even though I have a 115-2 would be pretty high....

add the bow Dodger, 188C Garmin, Sun Roof, Bow cusion, 502 Radio, Center connection dodger to Sun roof...and Ill bet you cant get it for 35!!!At least not mine:))))Maybe like 39 and up...But the Boating Market is funny, theres one on the Flea Bay that starts at 16...but that boat has these huge speakers flush mounted to the face of the center consol...very Weird for me to drive a boat looking like that!!! I wonder what they were thinking? ANyone seen that????

Just glad I got mine when I did....and happy as a duck in water with it:)

Wow!!! It seems like prices of Whalers are sky-high when paired with Verado outboards.

Don't they know that most consumers have blown most of their cash over the past few years? And the cost of gas is creeping back up.

Perhaps there will be deals if sales at the boat shows do not materialize.

I configured a 150 Montauk with most of the options minus the electronics package and it came to just under 21,000. When I checked with the dealer is was nearly 22,500. Why is there such a difference. Does dealer freight and prep cost $1,500?
