Made in the USA -
                 Some of the great
companies YCM is affiliated with! 

Luke from Coastal Transport & Hauling LLC sent us this pic last night from somewhere in Alabama -looks like he may be taking up a few Walmart curbside pickup spots.

While that old Dodge Dually is very cool, we're really looking forward to the Boston Whaler 190 Nantucket behind it!

Boston Whaler 190 Nantucket!

Here comes that ’06 Boston Whaler 190 Nantucket we’ve been talking about!

You may be more familiar with a model called the 190 Outrage, which came out in 2007 and replaced the Nantucket -same exact boat, different decals.

 

Ours is a one owner boat from a very nice, self described “old man”.

This one is very nice with very low, very well maintained hours, and no both paint - I suspect she will sell quick.

We’ll have her sorted out and priced over the next few days.

If you’re interested, better step up to the plate and give us a call!

There goes a 1984 Boston Whaler 17 footer!

She left YCM yesterday morning for Nashville, Tennessee!

About three years ago, we brought this one to Virginia all the way from Wheatland, Wyoming!

She was originally purchased by The Unites States Department of Interior, which amongst many other things is in charge of our National Parks Services and National Fish and Wildlife Services.

By the time we got her, she’d already been retired twice, first from the DOI, and then from a Wyoming marina, where she chased small sail boats around a lake and towed in the occasional stranded boater.

 

Fun facts - Wyoming is known as the “Cowboy State” for obvious reasons, but also the “Equality State,” as it was the first to grant women the right to vote.

We’ve actually bought two Whalers from the Equality State, this one in the summer -another in the winter, which we won’t do again!

According to Boston Whaler customer service, she was delivered as a bare hull on November 10th 1983 to Gavin's Point, in Yankton SD - that’s not a Whaler dealer, it’s a dam spanning the Missouri River, with South Dakota on the north side and Nebraska on the south.

Gavin’s Point Dam created The Lewis and Clark Lake, which we believe is where this little Whaler spent the first several years of her life, primarily monitoring water quality in the huge freshwater reservoir.

The DOI had custom seating installed, consisting only of a small box and a bench, giving the 17 footer a very open and spacious interior.

The 65 horse power Johnson outboard, is a 1986 Commercial Series, which means it’s built like a brick sh@% house with beefier parts and greater corrosion resistance. These were tough motors, and as the name suggests, were generally sold to marine operations, government agencies or folks that made their living on the water.

The old tiller handle two stroke has both electric start and power trim and tilt.

After going through the carbs a couple of years ago she ran great, with just enough of that two stroke smokey smell to make you miss the old OMC days…

Anyway, we had big plans for this one, but again, too many projects, not enough space…

Luke from Coastal Transport and Hauling is delivering her to Read Fasse down at FasseCo in Nashville. I think this is Whaler #5 or 6 that they’ve purchased from YCM over that last few years.

If you’re not familiar with FasseCo, and you like Whalers - be sure to check out their website. They do high-end, first class custom restorations.

The before and afters are always amazing, and every Whaler gets a cool name too!

Here’s link…

https://fasseco.com/

About an hour and a half from Nashville, Luke will be picking up a one owner 2005 Boston Whaler 190 Nantucket, we should see her here at York County Marine in a few days.

Hi Tide Super V-14 Skiff

Sold - this little skiff got an incredible amount of attention on our Facebook page and sold quickly! 

High Tide Super V 14

Occasionally a non-Whaler sneaks in…

We acquired this little skiff a couple of years ago, put a brand new Load-Rite galvanized trailer underneath, then never got around to talking about her!

The boat’s an ’89, and she’s powered by a 2018 Mercury 20 hp Four Stroke with electric start and next to no hours.

High Tide skiffs we’re built in Georgetown, South Carolina,

They have a reputation for being overbuilt and tough as nails amongst Carolina sportsman.

Like many small boat builders, High Tide did not survive the housing crisis inspired recession of 2008.

 

The molds were purchased in 2011 by Mi Tide, a small boat builder in the same South Carolina town. Mi Tide specializes in quality, shallow drafted hunting and fishing skiffs -check out their website for more info.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive knock-around fiberglass skiff to throw crab pots, do a little fishing or duck hunting -this may be what you’re looking for.

She’s $6,700 with new trailer, $5,500 without.

If you don’t need the motor, we can discuss that too!

We’re going backwards on this one, but the space is needed, and it’s time to find her a new home.

 

Give is a call between 10am and 7pm EST (even on weekends) with questions!

Our mechanic will service the motor, and she’ll be water-ready upon delivery.

Organizing and shuffling through our cache of Boston Whaler brochures the other day I ran across this very cool photo of an Outrage 21…

We’ve got brochures representing most years, and it’s easy to lose time in any one of them, this particular two page photo was in the 1979 brochure.

Those distinctive low gunwales made the original Outrage a favorite amongst fishermen, scuba divers and rescue teams -and the fast, quick planing, great handling, shallow drafted hull made the Outrage a favorite with anyone else that simply liked having fun on the water!

The Outrage hull was such a radical departure from the norm, in fact the unusual lines helped coin the name Outrage -derived from an early production comment of "that’s outrageous”!

The unusual swooping lines also earned these first gen Outrages the nickname “banana boat”.

Some see absolute beauty, some see weird, either way, there truly is no other boat that shares a similar profile.

Boston Whaler produced the Outrage 21 from 1970-1982.

There was also a closed bow, side console version of the same hull called the Revenge available from 1972-82.

A scaled down version of both was available in 19 footers as well.

YCM currently has an extremely nice ’78 Outrage 21 available.

She had the same owner for over 40 years, and there are very few anywhere in as good, original condition. She’s one of many Whalers I’d keep for myself if space were never an issue, and my wife would let me.

Take a look at her in our inventory if interested!

Anyway - that’s just a cool picture!

We've been waiting on this Striper since November!

We’ve been waiting on this Boston Whaler 15 Striper to arrive since November!

 

She had to cycle through an estate, attorneys, notary’s, titles, etc, but she’s here now.

 

This one’s a local boat, having originally sold through Bluewater Yachting Center in Hampton, Virginia back in 1989.  The previous owner was 90 years old and bought the boat new.  

 

It’s now our job to find this classic Whaler a new home, so we’ll take a closer look, get her cleaned up, serviced and priced soon.

Please let us know if this is the boat you’re seeking. 

 

Here’s the write up from a few months ago…

 

In the YCM Pipeline - 1989 Boston Whaler Striper! 

 

Probably the best of the Classic 15 footers for taller folks, the striper offers a molded fiberglass side console with a taller profile, two bench seats and a bit more leg room.

 

If one were to order a new 2023 Boston Whaler, they’d have only a few choices to make  -how many cushions would you like? Bimini top or no top, what color stickers - not much more.

 

Back in ’89 you could of ordered the versatile Classic 15’ Whaler as a Sport, Super Sport, Super Sport Limited, Striper, or even a Mischief -with a Mercury, Johnson, Evinrude or Yamaha in various horsepowers…

 

A year or two earlier, or later the same Classic 15 was available as a Sport Center Console, GLS, Alert, LES, Standard, and Utility - and I may have forgotten one or two others -all out off the same mold - with or without bimini top, cushions and choice of decal colors…

 

Never being short on opinions, and based strictly on the science of fun  -the Classic 15 is the best hull Boston Whaler ever produced - it’s flat out fast, light and nimble, it’s a ski boat, a fishing boat and everything in-between. 

It’s simple to tow, simple to launch, easy to keep clean, self bailing, and a much better ride than the smaller Classic 13  -and still fits neatly in the garage.  

 

What it’s not-  is a big family boat, the most practical boat, or the most comfortable boat -but it’s the most fun boat!

 

We’ve got several Classic 15 footers available, or at least soon to be, including this Striper, two Sport Center Consoles (my favorite), a couple of Sports, a Super Sport, and perhaps the earliest 15’ Whaler still in existence, an original 1975 Sport, hull # 25.  

 

Our incoming Striper is currently equipped with a super clean mid 90’s Evinrude 40 hp two stroke, which is plenty of power for a fun, yet fairly tame day on the water!

 

These 15 footers were designed to plane easily with less power, and fly with more power -the max horsepower being 70 (rocket ship), and the minimum recommended being 20 (poky, but still fun).

 

We’ll evaluate when she arrives and offer a few options ranging from hull only, to new re-power.

 

Much more info, pricing and pics to follow.  

 

As always, give us a call with questions between 10am and 7pm EST @ 757-329-9979.

"Tiller"

Since this guy seems to becoming a part of the YCM team, it’s probably time to start calling him something other than “Cat” or “Kitty”.

We felt a proper name was needed, and we went with “Tiller”.

He’s a part-timer, likely going by a host of other designations as he makes the rounds -but when hanging out here at the boat yard, he’s now Tiller, or Tiley for short(er).

In this pic, Tiller’s inspecting our recently posted Boston Whaler 15 Sport project boat -btw, If you’re looking for a BW project, we’re looking to shed a few, give us a call.

He’s a pretty cool cat…

Yet another one from the YCM Project List…

 

Pound for pound, the most fun hull Whaler ever produced - the Classic 15!

This one owner 1984 Sport 15’s been a bit neglected -she hasn’t seen the water in years, and definitely needs some love.

There’s some separation at the green line, the rub rail needs to be replaced, and that old Evinrude’s ready for the recycle bin - etc, etc..

The trailer’s not perfect, but has lots of new parts, including a new axle, springs, wheels, tires and jack stand.

The Classic 15’ hull first hit the showrooms in late ’75, with many different interior options offered over the following two plus decades.

For the most part, Boston Whaler wound down production in 1994 with the Sport GLS, then a brief comeback in ’97 and ’98 with the “Standard”.

The Commercial Products Division continued producing a beefed up version of the beloved 15 primarily for law enforcement until 2000.

What we love about this hull -

The classic lines - while only three inches wider than her closest sibling, the Classic 13, proportionally, the classic 15’s additional two feet in length extend her from cute to sexy.

The Ride - This additional length not only conveys a look of performance, but delivers it. These boats are fast.

With a 70 horsepower motor, expect top speeds in the 40s, and a ride quality far more forgiving than the classic 13.

The Size - Super easy to launch, still small enough to fit in any garage, and light enough to be towed by nearly anything with a trailer hitch.

YCM’s “Running Out of Room Sale” Price - $4,500.

This one’s a project and she needs a good home -give us a between 10am & 7pm EST 757-329-9979.

Here’s about 20 seconds of snow filled video from our friend Phil up in Alexandria, VA.

He purchased a late ‘90s Boston Whaler Dauntless 18 from York County Marine last year.

I got to know Phil pretty well through many phone calls, he’s the kind of guy that you can’t help but like right away - just really a nice person.

He was also incredibly patient with us, as we ironed out a handful of issues getting his boat ready for sea trials and delivery.

Along the way, we ordered a matching green bimini top from Wm J Mills, and had our friends at the The Oyster Landing prep and paint the bottom.

Phil’s primary goal was to take his aging parents boating around the Potomac River and show them Washington DC from the water. It’s really the only thing that seemed to matter -I have a lot of respect for that.

The center console 18’ Dauntless was a great choice for Phil, primarily because of the comfortable, large bench seat with backrests that extend the entire width of the transom (currently snow covered).

He keeps her in a slip in Alexandria, VA, just outside of DC, and has sent us lots of cool boating pics with Washington DC in the background - we’re looking forward to more!

It looks like Phil is now a year-round boater!

She's powered by the original Mercury 200 hp Fuel Injected Optimax w/ Stainless Steel Prop.

We hit another milestone over on Facebook today!

**UPDATE**

WE'VE UPGRADED HER TO A YAMAHA 70 HP FOUR-STROKE!

Just arriving at York County Marine from Flagler Beach, Florida... 

            1999 Boston Whaler 17 Standard!!

These hard to find, and very desirable 17’ Standards were only offered from 1996 to 2000.

Boston Whaler put a wrap on the side console Classic 17 Sport series in 1992 when the last 17 GLS rolled off the Rockland, Massachusetts production floor.

The Commercial Products Division of Boston Whaler however continued to offer a no-frills, beefed up version called the Alert, which was sold primarily to government and law enforcement agencies.

The Alert hull was made with more fiberglass, a heavier duty rub rail and generally had a molded fiberglass side console with bench seats made of Starboard.

By 1996 Boston Whaler saw enough demand on the consumer side to offer a non-commercial version of the 17 Alert, which they called the “17 Standard”.

The 17 Standard utilizes the same classic self bailing 16’ 7” hull as the classic Montauks and Sports that proceeded it.

The interior is designed for low maintenance, with Starboard benches and a simple, molded fiberglass side console. Nothing fancy here -just hose it off and go!

The name can be a bit confusing, as earlier Classic 13, 15 and 17 tiller operated (no console) Whalers were also referred to as “Standard” models.

These late 90’s 17 foot side consoles are a pretty rare find.

We just pulled the original Mercury and upgraded her to a very nice 2014 YAMAHA 70 HP FUEL INJECTED FOUR STROKE with very low hours!


Yamaha makes the lightest 70 four stroke available, with superb power to weight ration.
She'll be quick, super reliable, super efficient and super quiet!

She’s also managed to make it a quarter century without bottom paint!!

We’ll get her cleaned up, push her through service, and post a few more pics soon.

Updated pricing coming soon!  -give us a call if this is the Whaler you've been looking for!

There's still time....

Here’s a few minutes of running around in front of the camera in a 150 Super Sport!

I

Produced from 2009-2018, the 150 Super Sport was Boston Whaler’s all-time best riding 15’ hull.  

Despite yesterday’s wind, and aggressive nature of our sea trials, I never got wet, not even a little spray, nor did I feel beat up, and was quite comfortable!

 

As for specs - she’s 15’4” long, with a 6’6” beam.  The dry (no motor) weight is 900 lbs, add about 260 more for the motor, she drafts only 7” of water, is USCG rated for up to 6 people, and is completely self bailing.  

Easy to tow, easy to launch, and easily tucked into the garage. 

 

This one’s sold and heading to Connecticut soon, but we’ve currently got three more 150 Super Sports available!

1998 Boston Whaler Montauk! 

Here’s another pic of our 1998 Boston Whaler Montauk!

This one’s a real beauty, all original and in great condition. She’s powered by a very strong and clean, 90 horsepower Mercury two stroke with oil injection.

If your looking for a Montauk with a bunch of pretty teak wood trim to maintain and fiddle with year after year -you won’t find it here!

By the time 1998 rolled around, all that high maintenance wood had been swapped out for more durable, modern, hose it off and go materials -the RPS (reversible pilot’s seat) back is now molded fiberglass, the anchor cover is also fiberglass with Boston Whaler’s non-skid diamond pattern surface, and the console doors are now made of a thick acrylic with an aluminum frame adding to the new, more contemporary look.

Some history…

Boston Whaler first tested the waters on the “no teak” concept with the 1991 30th Anniversary Edition Montauk, and carried it over in ’92 and ’93 with the well received “SE” edition.

By 1994 the Montauk’s fiberglass interior was standard, and the “Teak Package” optional.

The American boat buyer was no longer interested in the classic wood look, or the maintenance that came with it.

Very few Montauks were ordered with teak after the 1995 model year.
The classic 13, 15 and 17s had been trending in the same direction for years with the popularity of the all glass interior GLS model.

Now, back to our boat…

In 1998 there were two other notable updates made to the Classic 17 Montauk -

Gone is the thin, three piece rub rail set which cracks easily, is a pain in the @$$ to replace and fails to protect the boats rear corners from impact.
For the first time Boston Whaler adds a modern, one piece, heavy duty rub rail to the Montauk- protecting the entire boat, including the transom corners!

Also, the bow rail is now 100% welded, no more T-fittings, set screws, rivets or rattles!

Anyway, our ’98 is pretty sweet, she got an appointment coming up with our marine mechanic, followed of course by sea trials - more pics soon, or by request.

She’s priced with trailer @ 16,500.

Also included - full cover, Mills Console Cover and Mills RPS Cover!

Thank you to all that participated!   This "one's in the books"!

We raised some money for a great cause, and hopefully some awareness as well!

BTW - we've got one one more copy of "Unsinkable", we're going to offer up, same deal, but without the auction -  $300 buys it.

November is National Diabetes Month.
Time for another
York County Marine Fund Raiser!

November is National Diabetes Month, and it’s time for another York County Marine Fund Raiser!

 

So, what’s the cause?  JDRF  -The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. 

 

What am I bidding on?  The very cool and very hard to find hardback “Unsinkable”! 

 

There’s been a lot of talk amongst the Whaler people about the now out of print “Unsinkable”   -The ultimate guide to Boston Whaler’s history by Matthew Plunkett.

 

The book was released in 2017, with timing to coincide with Boston Whaler’s 2018 60th Anniversary.

 

Word got out to Whaler fans all over the world, and it sold out somewhere around 2020.

 

Anyway, folks that didn’t move quickly enough are now clamoring for another production run, as they watch the pirates of eBay post the $35 hardcover for as much as 900 bucks!

 

While a few pics of Blitz on Whalers would have made for an even better publication, this detailed history of Boston Whaler and the people behind the brand is a great read for any enthusiast!  Its 208 pages are chock-full of interesting stories, facts and photos  -and looks fantastic on any coffee table! 

 

We’ve traded a few e-mails with Mathew, who is currently trying to convince his publisher to restart the presses.  In fact, you’re welcome to give Quarto Publishing Group USA a little push yourself!  

 

While York County Marine is content to leave the business of bookselling to the online giants, the small mom and pops, and those eclectic little book stores found on nearly every downtown main street  -we have committed to purchasing 100 advance copies of any future run.

 

 

Before y’all start up a YCM book club, or even contrive some vision of coffee and couches  -our shelves are filled with boat parts, not novels, there’s no air-conditioning, and we’re still 100% online.

 

The plan’s to include a copy of Plunkett’s “Unsinkable” with all YCM

Whaler purchases, and the occasional online fundraiser as well.

 

*Fun, completely random and somewhat offtrack fact  -the 3rd largest seller of books in the United States is that Hudson News stand you walk past, making your way through the terminals of nearly every American airport…

I suppose we’ve all purchased something there to help pull us through those long, unexpected layovers!

 

Oh, and another interesting and little known fact - There have been two, if not three print runs “Unsinkable”.  

With close examination, you’ll notice the original, first run book’s cover is slightly different from the next printing.

 

It seems there were some artistic liberties taken with the layout of the Boston Whaler logo, which worked nicely for the overall flow, appearance and balance of the book’s cover,  but apparently did not flow well with Boston Whaler corporate.  

Companies tend to be very particular when it comes to their logos, and any alterations are generally frowned upon.

 

The book we’re offering here is from the first printing.  

 

You’ll notice the harpoon is to the left of the logo and almost incidental, while in subsequent printings “Boston” and the iconic harpoon are over “Whaler” - just like it is on the side of your boat.  

 

We’ll post a picture of both book covers on our website.

 

OK, to get things started, we’re auctioning off this gently used copy of “Unsinkable” (because we’re lucky enough to have two!) with all proceeds benefitting our favorite charity “JDRF”, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, committed to finding the cure for type 1 diabetes.  

 

If you’ve followed us for any length of time, you’ve seen YCM do various auctions and raffles to raise money for JDRF as well as several other great causes.   

 

Here’s how it will work - 

 

-Send us your best offer via Messenger, email or text.

 

-All bids must include a name and a phone number.  Your name will not be posted.

 

-We’ll let you know if you’re winning, and we’ll update the highest bid daily (again, no names will be posted) right here on this post, which will be pinned to the top of our Facebook page, and to our website.  

 

-Bid increments must be no less than 5 bucks  - No nickel and diming here -this is for a great cause! 

 

-Domestic shipping will be a flat 10 bucks, international buyers will be charged according to actual shipping cost.  

 

-Winning bid can be paid by check, PayPal or Venmo.

 

We’ll kick this off today, November 2nd, and run through the 30th.

 

Remember it’s for a great cause, and for a great book  -and it would make for a great Christmas gift!  

 

Best of luck!

 

If you’d simply like to make a contribution to JDRF, we can help with that as well.

What is Type 1 Diabetes?

 

It’s when your pancreas cannot create a hormone called insulin, which processes sugars.

 

Often first diagnosed in children, and sometimes referred to as Juvenile Diabetes, though there are now an equal number of children and adults diagnosed with T1D.

 

What causes T1D?  In many cases genetics, in many others a virus in otherwise healthy people. The body’s immune system fights the virus, and unfortunately goes overboard, destroying the pancreas’ insulin producing cells in the process.  

 

What doesn’t cause T1D - eating Twinkies, Ho Hos, buckets of fried chicken, etc  -this is not a dietary or a lifestyle thing.

 

Type 1’s must monitor their glucose levels constantly, making adjustments by injecting insulin. It’s a lot of needles, finger poking, injections in the stomach, anxiety and stress - tough enough as an adult, imagine all that as a small child…

 

Insulin which was discovered by Fredrick Banting in 1921, is needed for a type 1 to survive.

We hope you will join us in supporting this great cause!

 

**Note  -the book is called “Unsinkable”, which is referring to Boston Whalers, the book itself, however is untested and should not be submerged…

Here you can see the cover change form the first to second printing.

What the…that is not Blitz in that YCM Whaler!

Regardless, Happy Thanksgiving from York County Marine!

While I've got no idea who's Prius that is -the Montauk's ours! Luke from Coastal Transport and Hauling's getting her all loaded up for the haul from Unionville Pennsylvania, we see her tomorrow.

We buy Boston Whalers everyday, all over the country!

1989 Boston Whaler 15 Striper! 

Probably the best of the Classic 15 footers for taller folks, the striper offers a molded fiberglass side console with a taller profile, two bench seats and a bit more leg room.

 

If one were to order a new 2023 Boston Whaler, they’d have only a few choices to make  -how many cushions would you like? Bimini top or no top, what color stickers - not much more.

 

Back in ’89 you could of ordered the versatile Classic 15’ Whaler as a Sport, Super Sport, Super Sport Limited, Striper, or even a Mischief -with a Mercury, Johnson, Evinrude or Yamaha in various horsepowers…

 

A year or two earlier, or later the same Classic 15 was available as a Sport Center Console, GLS, Alert, LES, Standard, and Utility - and I may have forgotten one or two others -all out off the same mold - with or without bimini top, cushions and choice of decal colors…

 

Never being short on opinions, and based strictly on the science of fun  -the Classic 15 is the best hull Boston Whaler ever produced - it’s flat out fast, light and nimble, it’s a ski boat, a fishing boat and everything in-between. It’s simple to tow, simple to launch, easy to keep clean, self bailing, and a much better ride than the smaller Classic 13  -and still fits neatly in the garage.  

What it’s not-  is a big family boat, the most practical boat, or the most comfortable boat -but it’s the most fun boat!

 

We’ve got several Classic 15 footers available, or at least soon to be, including this Striper, two Sport Center Consoles (my favorite), a couple of Sports, a Super Sport, and perhaps the earliest 15’ Whaler still in existence, an original 1975 Sport, hull # 25.  

 

Our incoming Striper is currently equipped with a super clean mid 90’s Evinrude 40 hp two stroke, which is plenty of power for a fun, yet fairly tame day on the water!

 

These 15 footers were designed to plane easily with less power, and fly with more power -the max horsepower being 70 (rocket ship), and the minimum recommended being 20 (poky, but still fun).

 

We’ll evaluate when she arrives and offer a few options ranging from hull only, to new re-power.

 

Much more info, pricing and pics to follow.  

 

As always, give us a call with questions between 10am and 7pm EST @ 757-329-9979.

There goes another Boston Whaler from the YCM project boat list!

She’s 49 years old, and everyone of them shows!

We bought/rescued her from a youth summer camp in New Jersey, where she had served for decades, enduring hundreds of young boaters learning the ropes and sharing great times -every bump and bruise has a great story!

Charlie, one of our favorite clients bought her -this is his 5th YCM Whaler!

In order -I think… Newport 17, Classic 15, 210 Outrage, Montauk 17, and now, a well loved 13!
