If Found - Contact...

We’ve posted these “If Found - Contact” decals a few times in recent years, and many of you have taken us up on the offer.

We were recently able to get a few more of these potentially life saving decals from the USCG -and we believe every paddle board, kayak and rowboat should have one.

Whenever an unmanned kayak is found adrift and reported to the USCG, it triggers a full blown search and rescue - choppers in the air, boats in water, etc.

Most of the time the unmanned kayak or paddle board wasn’t properly secured prior to a wind event or was swept off someone’s dock at high tide.

If it has one of these decals, a quick call can be made to see if the owner is indeed in peril, or they simply lost their kayak.

It couldn’t be any easier - just fill in your name and phone number, then peel and stick the highly reflective decal on your paddle powered vessel.

Maybe it means getting your lost kayak back, maybe it means saving your life or that of a family member.

It also can mean saving valuable search and rescue time.

Need one?

Send York County Marine a private message with your info we’ll send one out (while they last)

Got more than one paddled vessel? Just let us know and we’ll send what we can - the stamps on us.

Get 'em while we've got 'em!

 

FYI

81% of boating deaths are drownings

83% of drowning victims were not wearing a life jacket

66% of drowning victims were good swimmers   ⬅️ Read that one again…

*2021 USCG statistics

Going out for a paddle?

-Let someone know where your going (float plan)

-Wear your live vest

-Be Seen! Kayaks sit very low to the water, and are often hard to see by oncoming powerboats, this is especially true at night or when the sun is in the eyes of the oncoming boater.

-Don't mix alcohol with boating

-Hydrate and have fun!

UPDATE - SHE HAS 51 TOTAL HOURS!

Most of our Boston Whalers tend to come from pretty far away.

 

In a few days, for example we’ll have a 190 Nantucket arriving from Denver, Colorado  -they come from everywhere, and we send them everywhere! 

 

-But just last week I was asked to take a look at an 11 footer located at local marina, just a few miles down the road.

 

The little Whaler was too heavy for the owner’s davit system, he was looking for alternatives, and gave us a call.

 

Life as a tender is not always easy, and this one had been well used, even a bit neglected, bearing the service scars associated with years of use as a tiny water taxi.

 

Between the price and overall condition we we’re unable to come to immediate terms. 

 

-BUT THEN…

 

Somewhat disappointed and turning to leave, just a few feet way, the sun was gleaming off a beautiful, Classic 1985 Boston Whaler Montauk   -and she was sportin’ a for sale sign  -and a recent re-power!  

 

Classic Montauk, two owners since new, excellent condition, no bottom paint, newer Honda  - there was nothing we could do, we ended up having to buy her.

 

The 60 hp fuel injected, four stroke Honda was added new in 2019, rigged by our friends at Atlantic Marine in Yorktown.  They’re the Honda folks in the area, and they always do pro-level work.  

 

We’ll read the hours soon, and report back  -they will definitely be very low.

 

I know what you’re thinking  -“60 horsepower, that’s underpowered”

 

Well depending on what you’re planning, I’d argue with you on that.

 

For comparison sake, consider that the classic Montauk 17 tilts the scales at about 900 lbs, while the current 150 Montauk weighs in at 1,050 pounds - yet its maximum rating is 60 horsepower. 

 

With the 60, our ‘85 Whaler will jump right up on plane, and top out in the mid to upper 30s, all along burning very little fuel, making very little noise, and offering all the reliability of a new Honda Civic, Accord, or whatever your modern automotive model of choice may be. 

 

Now, if your boating plans revolve around wakeboarding, or hauling around three or four linebackers while roasting a pig, and carrying a keg, this motor may not be the best choice. 

 

Want to go fishing with your buddy, or maybe pull the grandkids on a tube? No problem. 

 

 

Also in 1985  -Marty McFly managed time travel in a DeLorean, The Breakfast Club was huge, MTV was actually playing great music videos, Coke had a “new” recipe, Reagan and Bush (41) were starting their second term, and I was daydreaming my way through 11th grade, wondering why in the world they were making me take Spanish and typing classes….

 

Anyway, our ’85 is in fantastic condition, she’s solid, the gelcoat looks great, and lacks the crazing and spiderwebbing so often found on these vintage Whalers.  

 

She has the larger 22 gallon gas tank, which Moeller makes specifically for the 17 Montauk.

 

The original William J Mills bimini top comes with the boat, as do matching covers for the console and reversible pilots seat.

 

The teak looks great, and motor shines like new! 

 

As for the 11 footer that got this all started, we’re still on the fence  -we’ve currently got three 110s in the YCM inventory, and they’re all prettier! 

 

She's offered @ 22k and she's water ready! 

 

Give us a call if this looks like your ideal Whaler.

We've gotten quite a few requests for additional pics and videos of this one! 

- So, here's a walk-around video of our 2021 Boston Whaler 170 Montauk w/11 total freshwater hours!

Update!  She's here!  She's Gorgeous!  She's Available!  She's $50k!

 

Here comes that stunningly perfect, garage kept, freshwater, one owner 170 Montauk from Huntsville, Alabama -WITH 11 (eleven) TOTAL HOURS!

I’m not kidding folks, this is the nicest 170 we’ve ever had.

The option list on this Whaler get’s her just shy of the 70k mark if ordering today from your local Boston Whaler dealer -ours will run you considerably less -but she's just as nice.

Luke from Coastal Transport will have her here safely sometime Tuesday morning.

BTW - that’s our orange Portland Pudgy strapped down in the back of Luke’s truck -can’t wait to play with that!

We will have videos available soon, and pricing as well.

If you are in the market for a new 170 Montauk, you may want to give this one some thought.

 

Give us a call anytime between 10am and 7pm EST with questions.

Boston Whaler 170 Super Sport!

IMG_8084.JPG

Just arriving on this rainy Saturday @ YCM - 2014 Boston Whaler 170 Super Sport!

 

We’ve already plugged her in -and there’s only 112 total hours on the clock!

This is similar to the one you saw us ship to Bermuda a few weeks ago, and she’s likely to sell quickly!

We’ll clean her up, shoot more pics, and have her priced very soon, meanwhile, here’s some of the basics…

First - these boats are just plain fun and fast, and the ride quality is amazing! Say that two or three times.

You can expect the overall towing weight with trailer to be about 2000 lbs.

The draft is about 9 inches - that’s what it takes to float, remember, that's with the motor up!

They’re rated for up to 7 people, but that would be a bit out of hand!

The self bailing capabilities are outstanding.

Ours includes the following factory options…

The color is Boston Whaler “Classic Dessert Tan”

Factory Ski Tow Arch with Sun Top - a super beefy aluminum, folding tower designed to keep the ski rope up high for wake-boarders and water-skiers.

While beefy, it’s not heavy, and can be easily folded down, or removed for a day of open casting at your favorite fishing spot.

Mercury 90 hp fuel injected four stroke w/Stainless Steel Prop

Wraparound Bow Rail

19 Gallon Fuel Tank

Windshield

Bow Cushion

High Back Bucket Seat

The 170 Super Sport has always been a super elusive boat to catch on the used market -they just don’t show up that often.

They first debuted on boat show floors in 2010, and had a good, eight year run -until Boston Whaler combined the 150 SS and the 170 SS, creating the new 160 SS in 2019.

Why would they axe such a cool boat?

I don’t really think they did.

If a manufacturer can offer fewer models (cars, boats, bicycles, whatever) while maintaining sales numbers, it’s generally seen as a healthy move -and it’s not hard to recognize the overlap that existed between the 130, 150, and 170 Super Sports.

Boats, like cars, have to be updated and redesigned every few years to keep the attention of the consumer and to remain competitive.

You can expect your favorite car for example, to go through a complete re-do process every 5-7 years, with minor updates annually.

With Boston Whaler, the iconic 13 footer is where it all got started, it’s important to brand identity, and I don’t see that model ever going way -continue to get more expensive, yes, but go way, no.

Needing a Super Sport with true ski-ability in the lineup, meant maintaining a higher horsepower option -so if one had to go, it was really our beloved 150 SS that was lost in the fray.

I see the new 160 Super Sport more as a redesigned/updated 170.

Sidebar - there is little competition in this high quality, small boat arena, primarily because small boat building just isn’t that profitable -the money is in building bigger boats!

Anyway, back to our 170 Super Sport, we’ll post more info soon -but be sure to call us right away if this is the Whaler you’re look for!

Fuel Injected Four Store Mercury 40 hp.

This one's been hanging out, all covered up on the YCM back burner for quite a while!

We've been getting quite a few requests lately for budget minded 13 footers, so we pulled her to the front.

I've asked our mechanic to check her over, and have her ready for delivery soon. She's $10,500 w/trailer.

That's cool!

So -- we had sooo many inquiries about our father/son Classic 15 & 17 Whaler set -that if this were the actual ’70s or ’80s, I mighta just taken that phone right off the the hook…

Our 15 Sport sold immediately, with at least two folks not-so happy with me -it’s not easy trying to balance several perspective and enthusiastic buyers, trying to be fair to everyone, maintain the flow, etc, etc.

As for the 17 Super Sport, she found a new home following a FaceTime video chat this morning as well.

There are still others circling incase either falls through.

But, all I want to say is -how cool is that 1980 Coast Guard Safety Inspection sticker? That boarding literally could have taken place yesterday!

You know what else is cool -that Ritchie Explorer Compass!

Ritchie made those exclusively for Boston Whaler, they were a factory option from the early ’60s through the ’70s and into the’80s, with the last production run in 1985 -they are highly sought after.

They were forty-two bucks in the ’79 Boston Whaler accessory catalog, which was kinda pricey at the time!

There’s currently one on ebay for six hundred bucks -and it’s not as nice as this one! Find a red one this nice -name your price.

Also on our Classic 15 Sport, and not valuable at all -what would have been at the time a pretty a bitchin’ cassette player.

We love finding these exceptional Whalers, swapping stories with the owners, learning their histories, and ultimately finding new homes where new stories and memories build on the old.

The new owners have promised new, happy pics on the water -we’ll post them.

There's Luke from Coastal Transport & Hauling LLC

on a corn farm in central Ohio, all loaded up with

two Classic Whalers heading for YCM!

Both sold w/in 48 hours.

Walk-Around Video 2017 150 Super Sport!  

This and all of our other Whalers are listed in our inventory @ the top of the page!

WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?

In the YCM Pipeline - 2019 Portland Pudgy!

Every now and then a non-Whaler slips into the pack.

In this case, after purchasing a Whaler from a guy in Alabama, he began texting us pics of this very cool all in one yacht tender, sailboat, motorboat, lifeboat.

As a fan of just about any small, odd, different, quirky, proportionally interesting boat -it was instant love.

These little 7 footers (7’8”) are built in Portland Maine, and like Whalers, are marketed as unsinkable!

They are rotation-molded polyethylene and pretty much indestructible. No inflatable rubber boat stuff here!

The hull is self bailing, weighs about 128 lbs, can support a 2 hp outboard, is a super clever design, with oars, sails, and gear all tucking neatly inside the boat.

There’s even a small wheel on the stern to assist with moving the boat around while on land.

If used as an actual lifeboat, a full protective enclosure is available which still allows the boat to be sailed as apposed to just aimlessly adrift.

She’s cute, but make no mistake -this is a serious, high quality little boat!

Here’s a link to their website, they’ve got lot’s of cool videos too https://portlandpudgy.com/

Anyway, if I’m able to convince myself that I don’t need this, she’ll be in our inventory soon…

In The YCM Pipeline!

We've got another 190 Nantucket coming in!  

 

This one all the way from Denver, Colorado!  

She's a freshwater boat that's never seen, touched or even smelled saltwater! 

Finding a nice 190 Nantucket (same boat as the 190 Outrage) anywhere would be considered a great find, finding a 190 Nantucket in the Mile High City -unheard of!

She's a two owner boat  -the fella we bought her from has owned her for less than 5 years.

He described her as a "barn find", having purchased her from an older gentleman that bought the boat brand new in 2005.

This is a very low hour boat - SEVENTY TWO TOTAL HOURS!

She's powered by the original Mercury 135 Optimax fuel injected two stroke.

This is a nice one folks, we'll have her priced and post more details soon.  Give us a call now with questions, she will sell quickly!

Another Whaler on her way home...

There goes a 1998 Boston Whaler Conquest 21 -she left YCM yesterday, heading for Manlius, NY, a small suburb just southeast of Syracuse.

No subways or crowded sidewalks in this part of New York, just a beautiful small and outdoorsy town complete with parks, hiking trails, even a few waterfalls. They’re about an hour’s drive to Lake Ontario, surrounded by several other lakes, and not far from the Adirondacks.

Winters could be tough, otherwise, sounds pretty nice!

Andres is the new owner, he’s excited, and he’s been a real pleasure to work with.

The Conquest should be a good choice for Andres, with the cabin and wraparound windshield providing comfort from the wind on chillier days, helping to extend their relatively short boating season.

The cabin on the 21 is almost Transformer-like, and goes beyond the normal, simple storage and porta-pottie found with most boats this size. On the Conquest, the cabin is well thought out, and modular -configured for upright seating, laying flat, dining at a table, etc.

There’s also plenty of fishable space on this boat, rear seating, and a clever hinged backrest allowing easy access to the integrated swim platform.

We don’t bring in many cabin Whalers, but I like the size of the Conquest 21. While you’ll know it’s behind you, it’s still pretty easy to tow with a normal sized pickup.

Anyway, we’re hoping for fun pics from Andres on one of those beautiful lakes of New York soon!

2016 Boston Whaler 170 Super Sport in “Classic Desert Tan”!

She’s had two owners since new, has low hours (we’ll post exacts upon arrival <200), and’s in very good condition -though a bit dirty in this photo!

Power’s provided by a Mercury 90 hp Four Stroke with Fuel Injection & Stainless Steel Prop.

She has the factory wakeboard tower with factory bimini top -so if you're into wakeboarding, skiing, or just pulling the grandkids around on the tube -this one’s a good choice.

Other Factory Options include…

-Wraparound Bow Rail

-Roto-molded high quality removable cooler seat

-Windshield

-Bow cushion

-Driver’s side high-back bucket sport seat

-Galvanized Trailer w/Folding Tongue

This is a fast, great riding and great handling hull!

These 170s don’t beat you up, and keep that annoying spray away too!

Rated for up to 7 people, 90 hp and lots of fun!

Self bailing, and of course, physically impossible to sink.

The 170 SS first arrived on showroom floors in 2010, and ran until 2017, when Boston Whaler replaced both the 150 and 170 Super Sports with the current 160 Super Sport.

Ours is arriving around the third week of May, we’ll have more pics, info and pricing soon!

There’s Luke from Coastal Transport in someone's backyard in North East Connecticut, hooking up the old Dodge to our 2018 one owner Boston Whaler 170 Montauk!

The boat is gorgeous.

She’s powered by a very low hour (we’ll plug in for exacts upon arrival) Mercury 90 hp Four Stroke w/SS Prop.  -UPDATE - SHE HAS 110 TOTAL HOURS!

She's loaded with the following factory options…

-Split bow rail -We love this! Split bow rails allow for easier boarding, easier working of the anchor, and better fishing -while still providing safety!

-Side Rails -Everyone has something to hold onto, everyone feels safer.

-Bimini Top -Recommended by 9 out of 10 Dermatologists..

-Rear Seat Package -This is the game changer, a $3,000 factory option making a great fishing boat a great family boat!

-Full Cushion Package -Including the cooler, backrest and large bow cushion.

-Swim Platform - Cleverly, more safely angled away from the prop.

-Raymarine Flush-mount GPS/Fishfinder

-Matching Console and RPS Covers

-Galvanized Trailer w/Folding Tongue

This is the current, and best 17’ Montauk ever produced, with much more storage, a 25 gallon built in fuel tank, and superior ride quality.

She’ll be here later today, expect a price tag in the 40s, and expect her to sell pretty quick -the pace has picked up big-time lately!  UPDATE - SHE'S HERE, SHE'S BEAUTIFUL, SHE HAS 110 TOTAL HOURS, AND SHE'S 44K WITH TRAILER, 43K  W/O TRAILER!

We’ve been posting info on this one over the last few days -and she’s been the topic of many a phone call lately as well!

Over the years, the 170 Montauk has consistently been our #1 requested Whaler.

This morning she arrived from the Sunshine State, and she’s every bit as nice as expected!

She’s a senior owned 2007 170 Montauk in fantastic condition.

The Mercury four stroke 90 has only 170 total hours!

Lots of factory options including the bimini top, comfort package with all cushions, swim platform, galvanized trailer, etc.

Busy day here @ YCM!

That's Luke with Coastal Transport & Hauling LLC picking up a '97 Boston Whaler Dauntless 17 -which may be the same year as that Dodge?

Josh is in Avon, Connecticut, he bought her over the winter, and he’s been great to work with.

We ordered a new factory bimini top from William J Mills, as well as front and side enclosures (it gets cold up there!).

Hopefully we’ll get some cool on the water pics soon, followed by some chillier pics with that enclosure up!

On the way back, Luke’s bringing us that 2018 170 Montauk we’ve been talking about!

Keep in mind -we buy Whalers too! Safe, Simple, Professional.

We've been working on this one for a while now!

Father and Son Whalers!

 

One’s a 1982 Boston Whaler 15 Sport w/optional wrap around seat back, the other’s a super nice 1985 Boston Whaler 17 Super Sport!

They’re freshwater boats coming out of Ohio, and we’re pretty darn excited about the pair!

The 17 belongs to the father, he’s in his 70s and doing a little downsizing. She’s powered by an extremely low hour 1999 Johnson 90 hp two stroke, and resting on a 2011 custom fit Load Master aluminum trailer -that’s never been dipped in the water.

 

The 15 belongs to his son, they bought her way back in ’83 from the original owner, when the boat was just a year old. The original Mercury 70 hp two stroke is still on the back, also with very low hours.

 

These boats have been stored in a climate controlled building for years, they’ll be here soon -and they’ll be expensive.

More info, pricing and pics to follow -give us a call with questions!

Want the Classic Whaler, but with modern four stroke power? We can help with that too.

2007 Boston Whaler 170 Montauk  -with only 170 Hours! 

 

We don’t usually broker, but, she’s a nice Whaler, and I like the guy.  

 

I took a call the other day from an older fella down in Florida with some health issues - he’ll be ok, but it’s keeping him from using the boat -not to discuss anybody’s business -but we should all be using sunscreen, and keep that bimini top up…

 

We couldn’t come to terms on buying the boat, so we agreed on brokering, so long as he signed a non PIA agreement…
