The Whittley company have been building high quality, handcrafted Australian-made boats for over 65 years, designed specifically for Australian boating conditions. Unlike many boats built overseas, every new Whittley boat is legally trailerable without over-width towing restrictions, enabling customers to tow virtually anywhere, anytime with a suitable set up tow vehicle in Australia. Whittley Boats are sold through the Whittley Family and Groups own retail dealerships and offer new and existing customers a complete boat buying experience, from the build to ongoing service and warranty support, which is unique to the industry. The customer deals directly with the boat builder and Whittley Family thru out the process. Whittley WA is located at 46 Wisdom Terrace, Wangara, Perth, WA.

Alan Whittley, Whittley Marine Group, Director of Sales & Marketing, had this to say about the exciting announcement. “We look forward to having on display our range of premium locally made, trailerable fiberglass boats. Whittley Boats have long been highly regarded amongst WA boaters, but have not been on display for over three years thru a local dealer for new boat buyers to see. The Perth International Boat Show will be the first opportunity locals have to see some of Australia’s most sort after trailerable fibreglass boats and also see the launch of the newly formed Whittley WA Factory Owned Dealership.”

Mr. Whittley continued to say, “Deal directly with the Whittley Family and Factory thru out your new boat build. Enjoy the high levels of product knowledge, that Whittley Factory Sales persons have. No one knows your boat like the company that builds them and support the local manufacturing industry by buying a locally made boat. WA we look forward to growing with you and taking you and your family boating, the Whittley way! Be sure to explore our range at this year’s Perth Boat Show & enjoy once a year boat show deal’s.”

Whittley Boats produce a wide range of family friendly, legally trailerable fiberglass boats, across three different model series and 11 hull models and range in price from $60,000 thru to over $400,000. Being legally trailerable & under the maximum towing width of 2.5 meters, you don’t have the mooring costs associated with larger live in the water boats and can use your boat to explore the country. All Whittley Boats are designed specifically for Australian’s unique boating lifestyles, unlike mass produced imported models. Whittley Marine Group offer unique finance package options via Mercury Finance & Insurance and all boats in the range are powered exclusively by Mercury Outboards & Volvo Penta Stern Drives & sit on a high quality locally made Mackay Trailer, ensuring a quality end user turn key experience.

Into the coming months, Whittley Marine Group will have more to say about its expansion plans for the newly formed Whittley WA business and Whittley Brand. The Perth International Boat Show is on the weekend of the 16-18th of September at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and provides a unique opportunity for the WA public to re associate itself with the brand.

Mr. Whittley finished by saying. “WA is a high growth market for our brand, like we have done elsewhere in the country with the establishment of our own sales and service dealerships in Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle and the Gold Coast.
