Montgomery 17 Sailboat

Montgomery 17 is a sailboat designed by Jerry Montgomery and Lyle C. Hess. The boat was built by Montgomery Marine and was specifically designed for cruising. The boat is popular for the stability and the compact size that makes trailering easier. It also has a decent sized cabin which allows for overnight trips. The centerboard and true keel of the Montgomery 17 Sailboat stabilizes the boat more than most of the other boats in the same size range.



Some of the features integrated into this sailboat include:

  • Relatively stable when sailing with the keel up
  • The true keel/centerboard configuration

One significant downside to the Montgomery 17 Sailboat is that it has a stub keel that cannot be beached.
