Boston Whaler Montauk 170

A classic hull that meets and welcomes all the innovations in the nautical world. The new Montauk is a very simple center console, no-frills and 100% designed for fishing. Easy to drive and able to develop interesting speeds, it is distinguished by the Boston Whaler trademark: the safety and reliability for which these boats are well-known in the world.

The modern “flavor” is also given by the electronics that today make fishing really easier or otherwise less unnerving for those with little patience and experience. In fact, with the electronics that help in the detection of fish, the work is certainly easier even also for the beginner

The innovations of this boat are for example in the integrated fish box with off-board exhaust, the optional fishing package that includes drawers for equipment, rod holders mounted on the console and cooling seat with cushion and back.

The 95-liter fuel (25 gallons) tank provides greater autonomy to ensure greater safety. For those who do not want to give up a touch of class, you can also have the “teak package” available.
