The Boston Whaler Montauk model remains one of the most popular models released from the Boston Whaler shipyard. With practical design and rugged stability, owners have long loved the “hose and go” capabilities offered by the Montauk range. A shallow draft means you can go anywhere, and get into plenty of shallow bays to try fishing both in the deep and shallow waters. Let’s explore the top five Boston Whaler Montauk models below.
The smallest model in the Montauk range, the Montauk 150 offers easy maneuvering and maintenance for those looking to take day trips or enjoy some recreational fishing onboard. The Montauk 150 is 15.5ft (4.7m) in length with space for six guests and comes with Simrad navigation and fishfinding electronics, as well as a standard 60-hp Mercury® Command Thrust FourStroke engine.
As with most Montauk models, there is an optional Fishing Package that adds a 36-quart cooler seat, console-mounted rod holders and tackle drawers.
While no longer in production, the Montauk 17 is still a popular boat on the brokerage market. Measuring in at 17ft, this is the perfect introductory boat for those looking to do a little fishing or to spend days out on the water.
While there is no coverage for inclement weather, there’s plenty of seating both on the aft and fore deck for those to enjoy the sun and views. When it’s time to fish, her walk around deck space will make maneuverability a breeze.
Officially replacing the Montauk 17 model in the early 2000s, the Montauk 170 sports a slightly longer and wider hull and beam to offer more spaciousness to those looking at the Montauk 170 model. With a total length of 17.4ft (5.28m), she can accommodate seven guests at a time, and comes standard with a 90 horsepower Mercury® Command Thrust FourStroke engine and integrated 25-gallon fuel tank for added range.
While the Montauk 170 comes with an integrated forward fishbox with overboard drain, there is also an optional Fishing Package that includes tackle drawers, console-mounted rod holders, and a 72-quart cooler seat with cushion and backrest.
Moving up in size, the Montauk 190 is 19.4ft (5.89m) with seating for up to eight people. She sports a fiberglass swim platform with stainless steel, telescoping swim ladder and a helm console available with state-of-the-art Simrad navigation and fishfinding electronics. Similar to the Boston Whaler Montauk 150, she has a forward fish box and storage compartment with overboard train.
The Montauk 190 comes standard with a 115-hp EXLPT Mercury® Command Thrust FourStroke engine or optional 150 XL with hydraulic steering. There is an optional teak package to add stylish notes to both the boarding steps and swim ladder, as well as an optional Fishing Package that includes 72-quart cooler seat, tackle drawers and console rod holders.
The flagship of the Montauk range, the 210 is the largest model, measuring 21.4ft (6.5m) with seating for nine people in total. At this size, the Montauk 210 features integrated aft quarter seats offering additional seating for guests, with an additional optional seating package with bow cushions, back rests and rod holders.
A deluxe leaning post adds a 30-gallon livewell and raw-water washdown for your big catches of the day! The optional Fishing Package on the Montauk 210 includes a 94-quart cooler seat, rod holders and tackle drawers. With 150-hp Mercury® XL EFI FourStroke engine, and the ability to power up to 200-hp, the Montauk 210 can take you anywhere you want to go.
