Small in stature, big on attitude...

Size isn’t everything and the impressive CW 1650 is testament to that. Safe and reassuring even when conditions turn nasty, this boat is the smallest in the Whittley fleet yet it can go toe to toe with much larger hulls. 

The perfect garage-friendly alternative to aluminium runabouts, the CW 1650 is blessed with a quality of ride that few boats in its size class can match. A glassed in reinforcement bar frames the dash and creates a platform that’s rock solid even when pounding through serious slop. Yet remarkably, the CW 1650 is incredibly stable at rest despite its relatively shallow freeboard. 

Able to be powered by outboards as small as 50HP, the compact rig is perfect with a four-stroke or direct injection outboard in the 70-90HP range. It’ll even tow tubes and skiers when the mood strikes you. Compact enough to tow behind smaller vehicles, the CW 1650 is a great little adventure machine for exploring backwater creeks yet it’s equally at home on larger bays and the odd trip offshore is well within the scope of its capability. 

The sparse interior is a boat pimper’s delight with numerous options available to tailor it to individual needs. If you’re entering the boating game for the first time or you’re keen on upgrading that tinny for something with a bit more substance, you have to put the CW 1650 on your shortlist.

“A t first I was not sure on which brand to select for my fish finder and gps needs, so I did some homework after talking to one of the Whittley sale people who suggested a Garmin. So I did my homework and decided that Garmin was going to be my choice. The factory supplied and fitted a Garmin Multi Function screen with thru hull transducer and card, and it has worked well. I selected a thru hull transducer to avoid spray issues or drop outs, and its worked out well. I would recommend a factory fitted Garmin screen in your next boat.“

Kevin Creed, CW 1950 Owner, Mallcootta Victoria

Garmin products are available as an option in all CW model’s, from the VHF radio upgrade to your choice of GPS/FF options, there is a model to suit your budget and needs.

Many boat trailer builders have claimed for years, that the trailer is just as important as the boat, when it comes to making a decision on a new boat package and they are right! Since Mackay’s beginnings, Whittley have worked alongside them to perfect a trailer design which is custom built to suit the Whittley hull.

Ever struggled to put your boat on and off the trailer by yourself, sick of having the hazard of a slippery ramp.

mackay aluminium trailer upgrade

ALUMINUM UPGRADE
If you are watching your total trailering package weight, an easy and smart way to reduce this is via Mackay’s range of premium aluminum trailer upgrades. Mackay’s aluminum trailer range are not bolted together, but rather fully welded for strength and are designed for our tough Australian roads. Not only are they light in weight, also being aluminum in construction means that the trailer has further protection against corrosive salt water, over a galvanized trailer.

For more information about Mackay Trailers for your Whittley Boat, please consult your local Whittley dealer.

* Please Note: Images are supplied for generic use and standard equipment and features may vary from model to model, Whittley reserves the right to change specifications of its trailers at anytime.

Reasons To Buy A Glass Boat

› LESS NOISE | glass boats are quieter than alloy boats when at rest and on the move.
› WARMER ON THE WATER | glass boats have better insulation properties for overnight sleepovers.
› REDUCED VIBRATION | glass encapsulated stringer systems absorb vibration resulting in a softer ride.
› LOWER REPAIR COSTS | there are no major repainting costs for stone chips - simply dremel out, fill and polish.
› SPRAYED AND ROLLED FOR STRENGTH | no alloy fatigue or broken welds to repair, plus optional foam filling for added strength.
› EASIER TO DRIVE | solid high sides and sure footed on the water, with a quick transition up onto the plane.
› AFFORDABILITY & VALUE | alloy boats were historically cheaper than glass, but not anymore.
› INCREASED FUEL ECONOMY | more shapely hull design that’s more slippery through the water means less money spent at the bowser.
› NO CORROSION ISSUES | drop a coin or sinker into an alloy hull and the corrosion process starts.
› GELCOATS SPRAYED FOR LIFE | gelcoat is part of the moulded process unlike alloy paint that can fleck off and is prone to electrolysis.
› STERNDRIVE READY | can feature a fully fresh water cooled engine with all alloy block for increased engine life and longevity.
› FULL LENGTH MOULDED CHINES | strategically located throughout the hull to slice through the water with ease.
› BETTER RIDE | nothing rides better than a glass boat…

Don’t take our word for it - ask a fibreglass boat owner why they love their glass boat!
