Whittley set for strong showing at SCIBS

Australian fibreglass trailer boat manufacturer Whittley Marine, along with longstanding Queensland dealer, Northside Marine, have proudly announced the largest display of new Whittley boats since 2010 at this year’s 30th Anniversary Sanctuary Cove Boat Show.

Bill Hull, Sales Manager at Northside Marine, said “The Sanctuary Cove Boat Show has always been successful for the Whittley brand. This year we will have on display the legally trailerable flagship CR 2800, featuring the advanced on board management system, Whittley Pulse, through to the smallest CW 1650 model, with many models in between. From BMT packages that start from $39,990 drive away, right through to over $200,000; we have a boat, and a price, that will suit every family.”

Northside and Whittley Marine have enjoyed a long partnership of over 40 years and Whittley has been on display at nearly every Sanctuary Cove Boat Show since the show first opened.

The marina village provides an environment like no other for potential customers to look and purchase a new boat and with the increased interest in family trailerable sports boats, and Whittley’s largest display yet; it is a great time to buy!

“In 2017 and 2018 we have seen a significant increase in sales of Whittley boats. They are our stand-out brand in the dealership and we look forward to continuing this momentum at the Boat Show. With great factory rebates, buying a new Whittley at the show has never been more attractive.” said Mr. Hull of Northside Marine.

Whittley Marine has chosen the Boat Show for the release of the new Whittley SL 20 OB. Building on the companies 5 series approach across the CR range of sports cruisers, CW range of outboard powered fishing packages, FF series of cruiser and fisher hybrids, XS wake and sports boats; the new SL 20 OB is the smallest SL in the series of deep vee off shore fishing boats and is available on a high quality Mackay trailer, with a Yamaha F 150 4 Stroke from under $79,990.

Alan Whittley, Sales & Marketing Director at Whittley Marine said, “Why not consider a trailer boat? You can clean it, store it at home and not pay  mooring fees; plus you can tow it around the country, using your boat as your accommodation. A trailer boat broadens and maximises your horizons and boating options. Every Whittley boat is legally trailerable, without permits. Simply hook on and tow anywhere, anytime. Plus when you buy a Whittley, you are supporting local families and manufacturing jobs with your boat being built in Australia for our local conditions, especially the Gold Coast waters.”

Local Australian new boat consumers continue to demand complete integration between the boats multi function screen, engine, battery management and switching.

A unique Volvo Penta powered package via the Whittley Pulse System offers a complete integrated package not offered by any other local trailer boat builder.

Combine this unique user integration between the boats key areas and the user, with the larger rear platform that a stern drive powered package offers, and the uniqueness of the Whittley is highlighted.

“Whittley has continued to see increased sales of our Volvo Penta stern drive powered packages. In a cruiser style boat, a stern drive configuration enables full length rails, a large rear swim platform where a BBQ can be mounted easily, and internally, a deluxe rear lounge fitted on top of the stern drive engine. New stern drive technology is also leading the popularity of a stern drive powered cruiser, with the engines now fully fresh water cooled and an all alloy block removes corrosion issues of the past and fuel economy through industry leading direct fuel injection and variable valve timing that you simply can’t achieve from an outboard powered craft. I encourage potential customers to look deeper into a stern drive powered package as the technology has come a long way and integrates into the boat seamlessly.” Mr. Whittley said.

To explore the exciting new 2018 Whittley model range, models will be on display at the Sanctuary Cover Boat Show on the Northside Marine stand # PW 7 & 9 between the 24th to 27th of May. Factory rebates are also available for the duration of the show, with new boat sales incentives available for customers looking to secure a high quality Australian made Whittley, at a fantastic show deal.
