Boston Whaler Montauk 170

A classic hull that meets and welcomes all the innovations of the boating world. The new Montauk is a very simple, no-frills center console designed 100% for fishing. Easy to drive and capable of developing attractive speeds, it is marked by the Boston Whaler trademark: the safety and reliability for which these boats are known around the world. The modern “flavor” also comes from the electronics with which fishing today has become “easier” or at least less nerve-racking for those with little patience. In fact, with electronics helping with fish detection, the job is certainly easier even for the inexperienced.

New features of this boat are, for example, in the integrated fishbox with overboard discharge, the optional fishing package that includes tackle drawers, console-mounted rod holders, and cooler seat with cushion and backrest. Providing additional safety is the 95-liter fuel tank for greater range. For those who do not want to give up a touch of class, it is also possible to have the “teak package” available.
