Mid-sized marvel built for hardcore action...
Whittley’s NEW FF 1950 is a purpose-built sports fishing boat that doesn’t skimp on family comforts. It’s light enough to be towed
by a large family sedan or smaller SUV and built to tackle rough conditions without breaking your budget. The FF 1950 features
an innovative walkthrough rear transom door, moulded fishing platforms and generous beam for stability.
There is plenty of room to store your prized catch with an uncluttered cockpit and dual kill tanks. Anchoring is easy with the convenient walk-through configuration allowing excellent forward access to the separate anchor locker and large bow sprit with lazy anchor system. The roomy cabin has a comfortable V-berth for a snooze when the fish go off the bite. There are two standard eskies that are easily stored under two stainless steel u-bars below the sports driver and passenger seats. These also make up the larger rear lounge.
The boat features one of the largest fishing cockpits in its class thanks to the unique folding outboard door in the engine well. There’s also handy toe rails to slide feet under for comfort - and storage aplenty when you land the big one. Easily powered by outboards in the 115-150 range, the FF 1950 is an efficient sports fishing platform that slices through chop and delivers excellent stability when drifting or at anchor.

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…
