    Thanks, but they only go to 1976, and in a 76 a 21' would List for $6,675

    Just wondering if this boat would sell for that? Seems Like a lot of money for a 1975 boat?

    Thanks again

    I don't know if this helps at all but I have two friends who each purchased used 17' Montauk Whalers this month. One was a 1973 that went for $5500 ( with 1990- something,90 hp Yamaha) and the other was a 1975 that went for $6025 (with a 1994 Evinrude).

    Maybe this gives you some scaled idea (??). I know Whalers of that vintage really hold their value.

  4. Hey Coach...you think those twin 65's will move that 21.5'er very well???

    That would be my only concern...Whalers are known for their quality.

    I've been on her a few times, the engines are newer late 80's they will move it around ok, even in 5'-6'ers... but I wouldn't count on pullin' many skiers :)
