There is no better introduction to family cruising than the popular Whittley CR 2080 sports cruiser. Inspired by generations of
Whittley Cruisers, the CR 2080 embodies all the qualities of its larger running mates in a boat that delivers comfortable live-aboard
accommodation in a remarkably compact package. Available in both Volvo Penta stern drive and Yamaha outboard power. The CR
2080 continues the legacy of compact live-aboard boating established by the original bondwood Whittleys of the 1950s. It’s
also been exclusively powered by Volvo Penta sterndrives...until now.
On the water, the CR 2080 delivers a classic Whittley blend of sure-footed handling, exceptional stability and ride comfort,
yet is easily towed by a six-cylinder family sedan or compact SUV. From the moment you board the CR 2080, you will appreciate
its fine quality. The well-appointed dash, sleek cockpit, plush upholstery and cabin appointments are without peer in its class.
Whittley designers have also cleverly integrated a sink and storage for a removable portable stove.
A full-length V-berth nestles within a fully-lined cabin that invites you to extend your time afloat. Select from a range
of outboard or sterndrive options and explore inland and saltwater destinations in safety and comfort. If you’re a young family
or a couple of empty nesters seeking a new boating lifestyle, the CR 2080 is your perfect getaway machine. With garage-friendly
proportions and a versatile and accommodating personality, the CR 2080 could well be the only boat you’ll ever want to own.

The Whittley Marine association with Volvo product spands back over 40 years, with Whittley Marine being one of the first boat builders in the country
to supply Volvo powered boats. Since then the engine bays of Whittley’s have evolved to house the new technology that Volvo has produced and lead
the industry with. In more recent years, Volvo has continued to expand its product range, with not only a new generation of engines but to know

boat. Whittley along with Volvo Penta encourage users to experience these new advancements in the Whittley boat packages.

In fact Volvo has driven most advancements in marine propulsion since its early beginnings as the first stern drive engine manufacturer and also the first to deliver to the market the industry leading duo prop drive. A Volvo Penta powered Whittley boat, leaves the factory, tested, prop correctly and built to provide you with years of unrivalled performance, longevity and reliability“
Eventha Peroni, Plant Manager, Whittley Marine

Garmin is Whittleys brand of choice for marine electronics and VHF radio communications. Both Garmin and Whittley know how important time on the water is to you, that’s why Garmin is the only factory supplied marine electronics and communications supplier - in the CW range.
“A t first I was not sure on which brand to select for my fish finder and gps needs, so I did some homework after talking to one of the Whittley sale people who suggested a Garmin. So I did my homework and decided that Garmin was going to be my choice. The factory supplied and fitted a Garmin Multi Function screen with thru hull transducer and card, and it has worked well. I
selected a thru hull transducer to avoid spray issues or drop outs, and its worked out well. I would recommend a factory fitted Garmin screen in your next boat.“
Kevin Creed, CW 1950 Owner, Mallcootta Victoria

Many boat trailer builders have claimed for years, that the trailer is just as important as the boat, when it comes to making a decision on a new
boat package and they are right! Since Mackay’s beginnings, Whittley have worked alongside them to perfect a trailer design which is custom built to suit the Whittley hull.
“A high quality trailer, is as bigger part of the boating experience as the boat is.
Towing your Whittley with a custom-made Mackay Tr ailer is a breeze."
Steve Whittley, Managing & Design Director

Ever struggled to put your boat on and off the trailer by yourself, sick of having the hazard of a slippery ramp.
All Mackay Trailers supplied by Whittley come L&R Boat Latch ready, its only a matter of ticking the option box, and all the risk disappears with the factory installation of the L&R Boat Latch.
If you are watching your total trailering package weight, an easy and smart way to reduce this is via Mackay’s range of premium aluminum trailer upgrades. Mackay’s aluminum trailer range are not bolted together, but rather fully welded for strength and are designed for our tough Australian roads. Not only are they light in weight, also being aluminum in construction means that the trailer has further protection against corrosive salt water, over a galvanized trailer.

Reasons To Buy A Glass Boat
› LESS NOISE | glass boats are quieter than alloy boats when at rest and on the move.
› WARMER ON THE WATER | glass boats have better insulation properties for overnight sleepovers.
› REDUCED VIBRATION | glass encapsulated stringer systems absorb vibration resulting in a softer ride.
› LOWER REPAIR COSTS | there are no major repainting costs for stone chips - simply dremel out, fill and polish.
› SPRAYED AND ROLLED FOR STRENGTH | no alloy fatigue or broken welds to repair, plus optional foam filling for added strength.
› EASIER TO DRIVE | solid high sides and sure footed on the water, with a quick transition up onto the plane.
› AFFORDABILITY & VALUE | alloy boats were historically cheaper than glass, but not anymore.
› INCREASED FUEL ECONOMY | more shapely hull design that’s more slippery through the water means less money spent at the bowser.
› NO CORROSION ISSUES | drop a coin or sinker into an alloy hull and the corrosion process starts.
› GELCOATS SPRAYED FOR LIFE | gelcoat is part of the moulded process unlike alloy paint that can fleck off and is prone to electrolysis.
› STERNDRIVE READY | can feature a fully fresh water cooled engine with all alloy block for increased engine life and longevity.
› FULL LENGTH MOULDED CHINES | strategically located throughout the hull to slice through the water with ease.
› BETTER RIDE | nothing rides better than a glass boat…
Don’t take our word for it - ask a fibreglass boat owner why they love their glass boat!
