This is a one of a kind custom 17ft Boston Whaler Montauk that stands out from all the others! This 1983 hull was stripped down to the bare bones in 2016 and was built back up to make it the perfect SoCal skiff. This boat has been my baby for the past few years and I have fished it all over the place from San Clemente island to offshore banks off San Diego, but I just don't have the time anymore to use it. Here are some of the features (I'm sure I am forgetting some):

-1983 17ft Montauk
-2016 Suzuki 90hp Outboard (196hrs) 5mpg+ With 6 year transferable warranty
-Baystar Hydraulic Steering
-2010 Pacific Trailer w/ foldable tongue


-Custom Center Console
-Custom Seat Console (houses 26 gallon fuel tank/ additional room for storage)
-Custom front deck extension w/ waterproof hatch for additional storage
-Removable 26 gallon Bait tank
-24v 80lb Minn Kota Riptide w/ autopilot feature and remote control or foot pedal steering capabilities
-Brand new bottom paint

Electronics
-Optima Blue Top Starting battery
-Hummingbird 998si (side imaging)
-Standard Horizon VHF + Shakespear antenna
-Bluetooth Stereo System
-Blue Sea Systems 4 Rocker Switch Panel
-LED Navigation Lights
-Perko Battery Switch

Please call or text for more details. (949 637 2447). $16,500 OBO

Nice boat, good luck with sale.

Looks like you took your time putting in some detailed work, and that'll definitely help the sale, but man. 20k for a 17 87 montauk. Always "one of a kind custom". When does the madness end.

He also put "OBO"! I sold mine for $14k in worse condition, it did have a Pacific Pilot house, badass electronics and 2015 Honda 90 low hours though. People buy these skiffs because they are inexpensive to operate and seaworthy as hell. Good luck with the sale OP.

You also had a brand new 90 on it with the warranty. The outboard alone was half the reason to buy it for your reasonableish price on it. The electronics were alright. Nothing can be that bad ass if its not through hull.

Unfortunately due to the foam filled interior a Through hull transducer is a no go. Either way the elctronics were bad ass imo. 20k price is what he's asking, obviously, and he's willing to negotiate. No need for the negativity

Through hull transducer are done on Whalers of all sizes. You need to hole saw out the top skin & foam down to the inner hull bottom. Prepare the cut out section with Fiberglass covering the open foam to seal the hull. Drill the appropriate hole in the bottom and install your transducer. Basically you’ve created a cup sealing the hull and it leaves you a perfect spot to tighten down the nut on the transducer shaft. We gel coat them after fiberglassing for a factory finish. This is the way it’s been done at Boston Whaler at least as far back as ‘68 that I have seen.

That box houses the 26 gallon fuel tank along with any tackle bags, life jackets, or random things to get them off the deck. For those who haven’t fished on a stock 17’ Montauk, there is virtually no storage, so that is why I added the box and extended the front deck.
