Boston Whaler introduces new Montauks at Miami International Boat Show
Boston Whaler introduced the new 190 Montauk and 210 Montauk this week at the Miami International Boat Show. The 190 and 210 join the 150 and 170 Montauks, unveiled in August, to complete a redesign of the entire Montauk family.
“We’re pleased to introduce the new 190 and 210 Montauks, bringing cutting-edge capability to these beloved classics,” said Jeff Vaughn, Whaler Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Service, during a press event held on Thursday. “In reinventing the Montauks, we strived to preserve the clean simplicity, effortless utility and total reliability that have always been defining traits of the series. At the same time, the new 190 and 210 — like the 150 and 170 — have been redesigned from the keel up to ensure maximum versatility, optimal use of space, and the right mix of features and options for today’s boaters.”
The new 190 and 210 Montauks feature increased storage space throughout, including an integrated forward fishbox/storage compartment and a bow locker with fiberglass cover, both with overboard drainage. Seating has been enhanced as well; cushioned aft quarter seats are now standard on the 210 and optional on the 190, and both models feature a reversible pilot seat with locking backrest and storage below.
Underway, boaters are treated to a remarkably soft, safe, dry ride, courtesy of a precision-engineered hull and Whaler’s unrivaled Unibond™ construction. Rugged “hose-and-go” utility and effortless operation make these the perfect craft for fishing, exploring and pleasure boating with family members of all ages; the Montauks are also well-suited to yacht tendering duties. Captains from novice to expert will appreciate the intuitive helm console with stainless steel accents. Reliable, efficient Mercury® power options are available up to a 150-hp XL EFI Mercury FourStroke engine on the 190, and a 200-hp XL L6 DTS Mercury Verado® on the 210, both available with hydraulic steering.
Each Montauk is readily customizable through a purposeful array of options. For anglers, the optional Fishing Package adds a 72-quart (190 MT) or 94-quart (210 MT) cooler seat with cushion and backrest, tackle drawers, and added console-mounted rod holders. Several state-of-the-art Raymarine® electronics packages are available to enhance navigation and fish-finding capabilities.
The redesign of all four Montauks was timed to coincide with the company’s 60th anniversary, and as such all are available with a Teak Package that lends extra “vintage” style. On the 210, this includes teak flooring on the swim ladder and helm footrests.
As a standard feature, each model includes a galvanized trailer with swing tongue, disc brakes and LED lights for safe, seamless transport and easy storage.
“The new Montauks deliver true turnkey operation, helping boaters get out on the water quickly and easily, and helping to ensure they enjoy the experience,” said Whaler President Nick Stickler. “The 190 and 210 Montauk, like the 150 and 170 they are joining, demonstrate the ease and functionality that Montauk has always been about. And now they reflect the latest in design, engineering and technology, demonstrating what the Whaler name has meant and will always mean, for the past 60 years, the next 60 years and beyond.”
