I hope someone can give me an idea on this ... and I hope I'm in the right forum - apologies, if not. I have a 1993 17 Montauk, I'm told its an SE - one of the first Montauk's made when they took all the teak off of them. It's in great shape. It's powered with a 2003 Honda 90 4-stroke with 235 hours. Galvanized trailer thats in pretty good shape, new tires (3 200 mile trips on tires). I have moved the battery into the console - floor is clear. No VHF - it had one at one time, but I keep it on a lake (on a lift in a covered boathouse).

I'm moving up to to a 200 Dauntless - 3 kids - need a little more room - 2 foot I'tus, what ever you want to call it. I love this Montauk and I have taken good care of it - I've had it for about 4 years. Previous owner was original owner and sold it to me to go to a bigger boat.

Can I get some feedback on what it might be worth?

Try to provide a bit more detail. Any bottom paint from previous owner. Does it come with any canvas (bimini, console cover, bow dodger, etc.) Any other electronics?

I would think somewhere in the vicinity of 10k but it really depends. Post some links to pictures so we can have a look.

Thanks for the reply. It has the original Mills bimini but no dodger or full cover. I did replace the fittings on th end of the bimini poles - the part that swivels the top, one of them broke but I called Whaler and replaced them from Mills. The Bimini is in great shape and the boot. The only electronics on the boat are a $300 humminbird dfish finder. I really only use it on a lake and that's all I need. When I got the boat, I had the rub rail insert and all replaced - the old one was worn. I also had all the decals replaced new. I had a bit of a hard time there because the original stickers were black and when I called Whaler they told me red. I finally got one of the old guys on the phone and thats when we figured out it was an SE (special edition) and that did have black harpon and logo. All of that was bought by Whaler recommended OEM's. There are some minor spider cracks in the floor in the back - nothing major. The original owner had a kicker on the back - I filled those holes with 5200, but they are still visible. Full rail around the boat - 3 perko rod holders mounted on the back rail. RPS seat vinyl has some small cracking in the corners, but its not too bad. These can be replaced from Specialty Marine pretty cheap.

I'll try to get some pictures posted.

This year I bought a decent condition 94 Montauk with a 94 Yamaha 70 in great shape, bimini, trailer, stern seat for about $8k if I remember? Frame of reference for you anyways. I have seen some go for less as well. This boat had no fiberglass spidercracks, although it did have screw holes.

If your Honda checked out with no corrosion issues, I would have paid maybe $9k $9500?

Here is a link to some recent pics of my Montauk. My new 200DT is hanging in that cradle right now, and the Montauk is on its trailer covered up - still trying to decide what to ask for her....

The market will give you a premium for the Honda engine in the southeast. From the pictures, your boat looks in very good shape.In spring your boat should fetch more money.In the spring, I would say ask around $11,500-12,000.I would put your bottom line at $10,500.

its amazing when someone actually asks for this information there are few to answer, but list your boat and watch how many comment on the price!

your boat looks very clean, no BP and kept indoors.
I would say to ask $11500 in the springtime and see what happens, but be prepared to accept less if demand and interest is soft.

Thanks for all of the response. I have listed her on Craigslist. I will add her for sale here. I know this is not the best time of year to sell - I will not let her go on the cheap. If I need to wait until next Spring, I'll keep her covered and wait until someone comes along that appreciates her!

here is a link to the ad on Craigslist:

By the way, here is a link to the pics of my 200DT in the same slip that my Montauk lived in(sorry for the nighttime pics - I've only had her 2 weeks) - this boat is awesome and after 2 weeks I am fully enjoying it - bad news is, the water goes down for 2 months next week!

I still need to rig the new boat out with GPS/Sounder (I'm thinking combo)?
