Fishermen looking for a sleek, compact, and easy-to-use inshore and offshore fishing boat, should definitely take a look at the Montauk 170. It’s a center console craft that drills down on best practices

Just like the Montauk 210, this model doesn’t come loaded with features. So depending on your on-water demands, you might need to add a few amenities here and there. However, most fishing needs should be covered by her standard features.

This BW center console comes standard with a large forward casting platform, under which you’ll find the new integrated forward fishbox with overboard drain—add the optional bow cushion and turn this area into a nice and comfy sun lounger.

The reversible helm seat is, unfortunately, the only seat that comes standard—the livewell under the helm seat is also optional.

The available Fishing Package includes tackle drawers, console-mounted rod holders, and a 72-quart cooler seat with cushion and backrest.

Apart from the bow cushion and the forward-facing seat with the removable cooler, you can also add an aft bench seat or two separate aft seats with backrest.

Performance-wise, the Montauk 170 is easy to handle, performs amazingly, and her hull design gives her a great ride.

Powered by the Mercury 90 FourStroke, the Montauk 170 delivers a top speed of 40 mph at 5800 rpm. Planing speed is reached at 4.3 seconds.

Price starts at $34,746.
