The perfect family getaway machine...

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.

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!
