I went to the New England Boat Show last night at the Boston Convention Center.

The Montauk 210 on display was without hardtop or bimini and surprisingly was powered by a 150 Verado vice the newest FourStroke. Price listed was a few hundred over $54K.

I was very surprised Mercury did not have a separate display. Evinrude had their own display with controls, monitors and several outboards.

None of the Whalers on display had the new Mercury 150 Fourstroke on the transom. Cobia and Trophy had the most boats on display with the new Mercury 150 HP. One small cuddy had twin 150s.

Also of note, on the 170 Montauk, an optional bench seat was installed in the stern area. This is an option I have not seen before. The upholstered seat cushion was rather hideously mounted on a large rotomolded plastic foundation. The plastic eliminated the ability to have storage space immediately under the bench. It looked rather cheasy, something I'd see on a Carolina Skiff not a Whaler.

I saw a new 210 MOntauk last week, and it had a 200 Verado on it, a better source of power considering the large size of this hull. 150 does not seem like enough power. If I had one, I'd put a 225 or 250 L6 Verado on it. The tall, thin profile engine would look good on the boat.

The boat is much larger than the classic 22 Outrage, which has a 240HP rating, so this 210 can clearly carry at least 250HP under the formula.

The Verado 150 and 200 HP are optional. The standard engine is the Mercury FourStroke 150 HP.

Was at the Mia Boat show today and my dealer who is in PR offered me between 22 and 25 thousand for my 2008 190 Montauk to trade up to the 21 which was priced at 56,000 boat show special price.

With almost $50 grand invested in the 190 I doubt I will be seeing the 21 in my garage any time soon.

I stopped by the Whaler exhibit and looked at their new 21. I like whalers but I could see some flaws right away, T-top, I do not know if this is an aftermarket item or made by Whaler for their boat. However the top was not wide enough nor long enough in the front to provide any kind of shade, The boat looks real boxy, needed some better lines. On the transom supports two rod holders (each side) that double for a back rest for the seat, the problem with this is that in order to reach for the rod holder while the seat is in place, you could either fall over or just not be able to reach them (I did not check to see if the seat was removable, hopefully it is) The design team really fell down on this next one however, The fuel fill is in the back, down in the splash-well area, If the cap was not put on correctly or pop off you would get a fuel tank filled with water, and possibly you would not notice it until you suck up a bunch of water. Sorry to say but If I purchase this boat I would not let them install the fuel fill in this area.

Contender--The boat mentioned must have been the Montauk. How much was the boat show special price tag?

[Two threads discussing the new model 210 MONTAUK have been combined into this single thread.]
