Whittley set for strong Sanctuary Cove Boat Show

WHITTLEY Marine, builder of high-quality Australian-made fiberglass trailer boats, along with longstanding Queensland dealer, Northside Marine, is proud to announce the largest display of new Whittley boats since 2010 at this year’s 30th anniversary Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

Northside Marine sales manager Bill Hull 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 the range in between. From BMT packages that start from $39,990 drive way 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. Whittley has been on display at nearly every Sanctuary Cove Boat Show since the show first opened its doors. The marina village provides an environment like no other for potential customers to look at and buy a new Whittley trailer boat. Mr Hull said with an increase in sales and interest in family trailerable sports boats, and Northside Marine’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 standout 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.”

Whittley Marine has chosen the show to be the release of the new Whittley SL 20 OB.

Building on the company’s five-series approach across the CR range of sports cruiser, 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 offshore hull fishing boats and is available on a high-quality Mackay trailer, with a Yamaha F150 four-stroke from under $79,990.

Whittley Marine sales and marketing director Alan Whittley said, “Why not consider a trailer boat?” “You can clean it, store it at home and not pay exorbitant 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 boat’s 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 boat’s key areas and the user, with the larger rear platform that a sterndrive-powered package offers, and the uniqueness of the Whittley is highlighted.

“Whittley has continued to see increased sales of our Volvo Penta sterndrive-powered packages,” Mr Whittley said. “In a cruiser-style boat, a sterndrive configuration enables full-length rails, a large rear swim platform where a barbecue can easily be mounted, and internally, a deluxe rear lounge fitted on top of the sterndrive engine. New sterndrive technology is also leading the popularity of a stern-drive-powered cruiser, with the engines now as standard being fully freshwater cooled and an all-alloy block removing 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 sterndrive-powered package as the technology has come a long way and integrates into the boat seamlessly.”

To explore the exciting new 2018 Whittley model range, models will be on display at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show on the Northside Marine stand PW 7 and 9 from May 24-27. 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 price.
