“I’m thrilled with my new XS 16. I initially looked at alloy boats at the boat show but when I learnt about the performance and style that this fiberglass bow rider boat had to offer and for under $40,000, I was sold. Powered by a Yamaha F 70 with the VX package upgrade option, I have plenty of power and love fishing and skiing with my family. It is easy to tow and fits into my garage“

“I purchased my Yamaha F 70 4 Stroke with my Whittley XS 16. The Yamaha appealed to me as I had one behind my last alloy boat package. Behind the fiberglass hull, the F 70 is amazing. I pull skiers and the kids on a tube, my family love how quiet and smooth the engine is behind the boat. I would recommend a Yamaha powered package any day.“

Thara Brown, XS 16 Owner, Metung, Victoria

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.

“A high quality trailer, is as important to the boating experience as the boat is. Towing your Whittley with a custom made Mackay Trailer is a breeze, and so is the launch and retrieval process. That’s why we package up every Whittley XS series with an Australian made Mackay Trailer"

Steve Whittley, Managing & Design Director

Demand The Best, Demand A Mackay Trailer

Many people think that buying a boat is all about the boat or the motor, and spend little time researching the trailer. The trailer is as important to the successful boating experience as the boat or the motor. Let’s face it, in Australia, chances are our boat will be towed around to many different locations, and ensuring the trailer is set up correctly to travel on our roads is very important.

Equally as important is having an easy and positive experience when it comes time to launch and retrieve your boat. That’s where a Mackay Trailer really sets itself apart. A true drive on drive off trailer capability is offered standard under every Whittley Mackay Trailer package.

All Whittley XS BR series boats, come standard on a factory designed local Australian made Mackay Trailer. Don’t settle for a cheap imported trailer, buy a locally made and backed trailer that is covered by a nation-wide warranty and dealer support network.

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!
