Author Topic:   Montauk 170 - Stern Seating Reinforcement

Boston Whaler started installing the reinforcement for the optional aft seat option on Montauk 170's manufactured from January 2006 and up. The newer style aft sun/lounge sternseat option (offered in 2008?)would also require the additional reinforcement.

If you have a 2006 Montauk 170 make sure it was manufactured in 2006 before exploring OEM aft seating as an option. My Montauk 170 is a 2006 model but was manufactured in 11/2005, missing the boat (pun intended), by 2 months.

That said, if you own a Montauk 170 manufactured before January 2006 here is one option that was referred by Chuck Bennett at Boston Whaler.

Hope this helps all looking at an aft seat solution for their Montauk 170.

Crap, for 1500 bucks my guest can stand. I think that seat would look pretty ugly, just my 2 cents

1,500 is pretty steep I admit. I think once the seat is in the boat, and conformed to the step seats, your eye won't be drawn to the support struts so much (the ugly part).

I just e-mail the company to see if they have images of the seat installed in a Montauk 170. I also asked how they secure the seat to the hull.

To Be Continued....

Erik Selis posted a picture back in 2006. It's the second image link on his post on this thread.
