Whittley wants you to live your life to the XS...

There seems to be an established view that to be a “real” towsports boat, it has to be outrageously-styled, trimmed by a colourblind upholsterer and have exposed seating everywhere. This open layout is the primary reason that most dedicated ski and wake boats end up as lawn ornaments whenever the sun disappears.

The XS 24 challenges conventional ski and wake boat wisdom by utilising a family-friendly compact cruiser to underpin the new renegade of the Whittley fleet that for the first time introduces the concept of a towsports boat that can be used all-year round. One that’s not afraid of a bit of bad weather and doesn’t mind sharing ski time with a spot of fishing or just mooching about exploring the wonders that local waterways have to offer.

Despite being marketed as social boats, most of the ski and wake establishment don’t so much as offer a portable toilet, let alone other “social” concessions such as a fridge or cooking facilities. Whittley’s XS 24 offers all the comforts of home while integrating the latest technology to provide a comfortable yet thrilling experience for the entire crew. With a range of Volvo Penta powerplants available to suit a variety of applications, the standard package is offered with a Volvo Penta Next Generation V6-200 mated to a DuoProp Drive for instant response and unrivalled economy.

The range-topping V6-280 is available to adventurous families who prefer to go everywhere in a hurry when the need arises. Convertible covers and clears can be added for privacy or removed to let Mother Nature in allowing you to stay on the water where you belong.

garmin navigation equipment

“A t first I was not sure on which brand to select for my fish finder and gps needs, 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. The factory also linked the Fusion Sound System into the my Garmin head unit, so I can control my music from it, it was a great addition.“

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.

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.“

Alan Whittley, Direct or Sales & Marketing


Dynamically eliminates uncomfortable and dangerous boat pitch and roll.

Automatically minimizes wave resitance and saves fuel.

Innovative 3D controls provide unmatched control of running trim, heel or heading.

Patented series of durable fast-acting interceptors provide supreme lift force characteristics.

All-inclusinve mass-produced modular design provides built-in quality, simple installation and easy expansion whilst making the system affordable.


Near full beam inceptor arrangements are much more efficient at making lift compared to trim tabs with narrow span.

Zipwake's interceptor blade extends just 30mm, whereas trim tabs often project 1500 reflecting substantial drag.

Zipwake's blade stroke takes 1.5 seconds, outperforming conventional trim tabs by at least a factor of 5.

Interceptors provide more effective trim control creating less waves which directly leads to better fuel economy.

Simply set, forget and your boat is trimming itself in many ways, it makes planning so easy and effortless!

Zipwake is standard on the CR 2800 and CR 2600 models.
Zipwake is an option on CR 2080, CR 2180, CR 2380, XS 20, XS 24 and FF 2100 models.
