Whittley Makes Your Dollar Stretch Further in 2015

Sunday 14 December 2014



You pay for the name, right?

“That may be how the others operate, but at Whittley we do things differently,” says Alan Whittley, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Whittley Marine Group. “When Jim Whittley started building boats over 60 years ago, he didn’t do it so he’d have his name on a hull, but rather he built boats that his family, friends and customers would enjoy owning. Whittleys were a means of escape, an opportunity for families to re-connect doing something they loved with a minimum of fuss. Convenience and innovation was always at the forefront of the Whittley philosophy and it influences every single boat we build.”

It is this guiding principle that underpins Whittley’s premium range of sterndrive powered SL sportfishers and CR luxury cruisers. Standard inclusions are vast and the options list short. Each model comes loaded to the gills with everything you would expect plus a whole lot more. And for the 2015 model year, Whittley has upped the ante again. Here are some of the highlights:


Integrated Battery Maintenance

Low or no voltage can be frustrating, so for 2015 we’ve integrated a unique battery maintenance system with VSR (Voltage Sensitive Relay) that not only charges and maintains your batteries on the water, but plugs into mains power once the boat is home.

Digital Switching

Digital one touch membrane switching replaces traditional bulky rocker switches and panels and replaces individual fuses with an easy access circuit breaker system.

45 Second Engine Flush

Flushing your engine is a pain and often frustrates the neighbours. For 2015, every Whittley  powered by a Volvo Penta sterndrive comes standard with an integrated QL Neutra-Salt system that allows you to flush your engine in a mere 45 seconds….before you retrieve your boat from the ramp.

Guiding Lights

Cockpit and boarding platform lighting now complement cabin lighting on all CR and SL models.

Buckle Up

Saltwater-resistant Boat Buckle’s replace traditional tie down straps on all CR and SL factory-spec Mackay trailers. 

Snappy Dresser

The 2015 Cruiser range has some added bling with the addition of in-the-mould metal flake detailing that compliments the hulls’ flowing lines and refreshed interiors.
