How do I choose my options and colours and begin the new boat-buying process?

Is buying a Whittley from a factory-owned dealership a different experience from buying from a dealer?

When you buy from one of our factory-owned dealerships, you deal with the one company for the manufacture, sale, hand-over and ongoing service support of your boat, so the experience is considerably different to buying from a third party.

Once it is placed, how do I find out the status of my order in the schedule?

We encourage you to keep in contact with your local Whittley dealership where you placed the order. They will receive updates once the build process has started and are your direct link with the Whittley factory in Melbourne.
