Mid-sized marvel built for hardcore action...

Whittley’s NEW CW 1950 is a purpose-built sports fishing boat that doesn’t skimp on family comforts. It’s light enough to be towed by a large family sedan or smaller SUV and built to tackle rough conditions without breaking your budget. The CW 1950 features an innovative walkthrough rear transom door, moulded fishing platforms and generous beam for stability.

There is plenty of room to store your prized catch with an uncluttered cockpit and dual kill tanks. Anchoring is easy with the convenient walk-through configuration allowing excellent forward access to the separate anchor locker and large bow sprit with lazy anchor system. The roomy cabin has a comfortable V-berth for a snooze when the fish go off the bite. There are two standard eskies that are easily stored under two stainless steel u-bars below the sports driver and passenger seats. These also make up the larger rear lounge.

The boat features one of the largest fishing cockpits in its class thanks to the unique folding outboard door in the engine well. There’s also handy toe rails to slide feet under for comfort - and storage aplenty when you land the big one. Easily powered by outboards in the 115-150 range, the CW 1950 is an efficient sports fishing platform that slices through chop and delivers excellent stability when drifting or at anchor.

Garmin is Whittleys brand of choice for marine electronics and VHF radio communications. Both Garmin and Whittley know how important time on the water is to you, that’s why Garmin is the only factory supplied marine electronics and communications supplier - in the CW range.

“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. All Mackay Trailers supplied by Whittley come L&R Boat Latch ready, its only a matter of ticking the option box, and all the risk disappears with the factory installation of the L&R Boat Latch.

mackay aluminium trailer 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.

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!
