Description: The Montgomery 17 has to be one of the nicest smaller boats built. It was designed by Lyle Hess, a well-known and highly respected designer of blue-water cruising boats, as an able coastal cruiser; small enough to be easily trailered but capable of moderate offshore passages. She has a beautiful, beamy lapstrake, handlaid fiberglass hull, which provides tremendous strength and excellent tracking ability. Her modern underbody, with low wetted area, fine entry, and displacement well aft, allows her to move, fast and point high in light air as well as to excel in a blow. Her centerboard pivots from a permanently attached keel with no cables protruding to pick up weeds, etc. and the boat draws just under 2 feet with the board up and can be easily beached when youre gunkholing. The adjustable Swing Keel drafts from 1-9 to 3-6.

Shes self-righting and sails like a dream. This model has the 3-berth interior layout with galley unit to port. In the cuddy cabin youll find sitting headroom, a pair of bunks, a hideaway for a portable toilet, and an impressive amount of storage space. The deck-stepped mast can be easily raised using a four-part tackle. She is considered by many to be the best cruising sailboat in the 16-20 foot range.

Montgomery 17's have cruised the Bahamas, the Caribbean, the Sea of Cortez, and have made countless trips to the Pacific Coast Channel islands, including Catalina. A Montgomery 17 has sailed from sailed from California to Hawaii, from Cape Hatteras to San Diego, via the Panama Canal and sailed the length of the Mississippi, from St. Paul, Minnesota, to the Gulf of Mexico, and was possibly the first sailboat to have done so. Properly outfitted and prepared, she is a very capable boat. Her racing record is outstanding and her handicap (Portsmouth 104) is favorable.
