1981 Boston Whaler 17 Montauk


The Boston Whaler 17 Montauk, introduced more than three decades ago, has served countless families as a runabout and a fishing platform. The 17 features the security of hand-holds everywhere and the stable classic twin sponson hull configuration. A reversible pilot seat allows driving seated or standing, and functions as an aft-facing bench for lounging. Vertical rod holders in the seat back are standard, and the bow locker has a through-hull drain and nonskid fiberglass cover. All the hardware is stainless steel, from the lifting eye at the bow to the ski eyes at the stern. The center console layout, a Boston Whaler innovation, raised eyebrows back in 1961. By moving the helm from the starboard side to the center of the craft, boaters got better steering control and an even keel. With more room to move around, they got better fish-fighting capabilities. Now, countless manufacturers use this layout for their fishing boats.
