Description

Up for sale is my 1986 Boston Whaler Montauk 17’ that has been refitted with a 2015 Yamaha F70 four stroke engine. Arguably one of the best motors available for this classic Whaler! The boat is in overall good condition for a 1986. Shows well and gets compliments at any ramp. It is showing normal spider cracking inside of the hull and there has been some fiberglass work done over the years. The boat is equipped with an updated Lowrance Elite 5 chart/GPS which works well. Front igloo cooler seat, Bimini top, bilge pump, LED stern light, newer 25 gal plastic tank under seat, onboard battery charger, this boat is the perfect family or fishing boat. It has a full cover that fits the boat a little big but does it’s job. The Yamaha 70 was installed in spring 2019 with 250 hours, only 44 hours since then for a total of ~300 hours total. It runs perfect, sips fuel and is super efficient. The engine was professionally mounted and wired by Tristate Marine in Deale, Maryland. It has all genuine Yamaha rigging, (controls, smart gauge, wiring). Sea star hydraulic steering installed. Top speed is around 33 MPH per GPS, cruising speed of 25. The boat sits high in the water and is a dry ride. The boat has a few areas needing attention, if desired. The railings need to be secured as the original screws are backing out (I’ve used West Marine Six10 for years which has worked well). The rub rail was poorly replaced before I purchased the boat and they applied rubber epoxy very liberally and ugly, I had always planned to fix this mistake but never got around to it. Could use a new prop as the one on it has some chips and bends. There is some gel coat damage on the underside of the hull from pulling onto sand bars. This boat is not perfect. While it is in good condition for the year it does have some bumps, bruises, scratches and cosmetic imperfections. But if you are looking for a great reliable classic boat that does what it’s supposed to do, this is it. Certainly not a pristine show piece but a safe reliable boat you can count on. Boat is turn key as it is. Will come with USCG safety items with exception of life jackets. Trailer is a late 90s and is showing it’s age but pulls well and has good tires. New winch strap. Have title for both boat and trailer. Located in Dunkirk, Maryland 20754. Will take a serious buyer for a sea trial. More pictures available upon request. Great boat that is ready to go! Thanks for looking.
New service 11/22/2020, new OEM water pump, fresh oil change, lower unit oil, spark plugs, fuel filter & the boat has been winterized. This thing is ready to go, hop on it and have fun! New lower price - I am motivated to sell this boat!
