The mid-sized cruiser with maximum potential...

The CR 2600 sets the stage for your main event. If you’ve dreamed of owning a family sized weekender but mooring, antifouling and constant maintenance are not on your agenda, this could be your passport to a lifetime of memories. With all the style and flair of its larger sibling, the CR 2600 represents a milestone in family boating, offering an edgy yet versatile boating experience.

Eye catching and spacious, the tightly drawn lines and subtle curves hint at something special and stepping on-board only confirms your first impression. Making the most of its 2.49m beam, the CR 2600 is both spacious and innovative. An elegant helm console with twin seat provides the captain and first mate a commanding view through the panoramic windscreen. Ergonomics have been well considered and everything falls easily to hand. The sliding curved solid cabin door reflects the detail Whittley is renowned for.

A full service galley and generous V-berth are complemented by the rear lounge, which morphs into another berth. The wide rear deck is accessed via a drop-down door and hides cavernous storage below deck. 

Powered by your choice of petrol or diesel Volvo Penta Sterndrives, up to 380HP, the CR 2600 has long legs and excellent long-range cruising potential. All this in a performance powerhouse bred to thrill.

The ultimate way to trim your new whittley, is by setting and forgetting with Zipwake automatic trim tabs.

“The Zip Wake system has two main benefits, aied at making the driving of your boat as simple as possible. The tab's are automatic, meaning, set and forget, ensuring your boat is level whilst underway. The tabs also set themselves into the fully down position whilst transitioning to and from the plane. Which ensure the bow lift often associated with larger boats, is minised and maximum visbility is maintained. both these features are ideal for customers new to boating as it simplifies the planning and driving of your boat. I would recommend the Zip Wake system to customers looking at buying a Whittley from our CR range.“
