Lyle Hess, known for designing stout boats capable of offshore sailing, created the Montgomery 17 to be just that – a strong and able pocket cruiser with good looks and a spacious interior for her size.  Inside this version includes 3 berths and a galley unit, which also offers a storage cabinet.  A second version included 4 berths and no galley unit.  The mast is easily stepped on the deck.  There is a large forward hatch and a large companionway hatch.  There is a optional slotted aluminum toe rail (in lieu of teak), self-bailing cockpit with a sail locker on the 6’7” seats.  There is a spot for the head beneath the forward V-Berth. The design of the hull is that of a lapstrake from the days of wooden boat building.  This makes the solid fiberglass hull even stronger than the usual flat surface in most hulls and also enhances the tracking ability of the boat, not to mention give her a timeless, traditional and  very good looking vessel.  The Monty 17 has a shoal keel with a weighted centerboard offering great stability, good windward performance and the pennant which raises the swing keel is not visible when the keel is down, so it will not pick up weeds. Built by Jerry Montgomery, designed by Lyle Hess and tooled by Woodford Royce, the Montgomery 17 is a fast, comfortable vessel that is capable of safe, moderate offshore passages and used the sound keel centerboard system allowing her to be easily ramp launched.
