1979 Boston Whaler 17 Montauk Fishing Boat in Mount Vernon, New York

Stock #199334

Few 17-foot fishing boats are as well known and coveted as Boston Whaler's, first launched in 1976 as the classic 17 Montauk, essentially the boat we are offering here, a tough, no-nonsense center-console known as a versatile and unsinkable boat that has retained its popularity through the years.

Powered by the venerable Yamaha 90hp 2-stroke and with the addition of a T-Top and updated electronics this boat differs little in performance from the current production of this model forty years later, except perhaps for the cost of obtaining one.

Well maintained by the current owner for a number of years, the boat has proved reliable and dependable, but at this point with a growing family the missions have changed and require a more substantial vessel.

So, check out the photos, read the reviews, talk to your buddy who "knows everything about boats" and if this one looks like it might be the one for you, make a move.
