Whittley wants you to live your life to the XS...
There seems to be an established view that to be a “real” towsports boat, it has to be outrageously-styled, trimmed by a colourblind
upholsterer and have exposed seating everywhere. This open layout is the primary reason that most dedicated ski and wake boats
end up as lawn ornaments whenever the sun disappears.
The XS 24 challenges conventional ski and wake boat wisdom by utilising a family-friendly compact cruiser to underpin the new renegade of the Whittley fleet that for the first time introduces the concept of a towsports boat that can be used all-year round. One that’s not afraid of a bit of bad weather and doesn’t mind sharing ski time with a spot of fishing or just mooching about exploring the wonders that local waterways have to offer.
Despite being marketed as social boats, most of the ski and wake establishment don’t so much as offer a portable toilet, let alone other “social” concessions such as a fridge or cooking facilities. Whittley’s XS 24 offers all the comforts of home while integrating the latest technology to provide a comfortable yet thrilling experience for the entire crew. With a range of Volvo Penta powerplants available to suit a variety of applications, the standard package is offered with a Volvo Penta Next Generation V6-200 mated to a DuoProp Drive for instant response and unrivalled economy.
The range-topping V6-280 is available to adventurous families who prefer to go everywhere in a hurry when the need arises. Convertible covers and clears can be added for privacy or removed to let Mother Nature in allowing you to stay on the water where you belong.

Standards & Options
The Whittley Marine association with Volvo product spands back over 40 years, with Whittley Marine being one of the first boat builders in the country to supply Volvo powered boats. Since then the engine bays of Whittley’s have evolved to house the new technology that Volvo has produced and lead the industry with. In more recent years, Volvo has continued to expand its product range, with not only a new generation of engines but to know include engine and battery management, flushing systems and integration into Garmins head units.
A Volvo Penta engine, is more than an engine that gets installed into your boat package, the partnership know extends further through out the whole boat. Whittley along with Volvo Penta encourage users to experience these new advancements in the Whittley boat packages.
“Quality is what makes Volvo the market leader in marine propulsion. In fact Volvo has driven most advancements in marine propulsion since its early beginnings as the first stern drive engine manufacturer and also the first to deliver to the market the industry leading duo prop drive. A Volvo Penta powered Whittley boat, leaves the factory, tested, prop correctly and built to provide you with years of unrivalled performance, longevity and reliability“
Eventha Peroni, Plant Manager, Whittley Marine
VOLVO ENGINE MANAGEMENT
For reliable and easy display of engine data
The innovative new Engine Management System removes traditional analogue gauges and replaces these with digital gauges through either a Garmin or Glass Cockpit 7”,12” or 16” MultiFunction screen. At one glance users can now have accurate fuel flow figures and full automotive-like integration and engine data. The new system offers users a clean smooth dash with one hole cut for the Garmin Screen. It removes cumbersome wiring and mechanical gauges - known trouble spots in boats - while offering incredibly accurate data to the operator. It’s all accessible at the touch of a button. The Engine Management System is available on engines in the Volvo range from 200 to 430HP.

BATTERY CONTROL MODULE
Removing common issues associated with battery and power management
The new Battery Control Module acts as a powerhub for the entire electrical system, removing the need for traditional barrel style switches, replaces them with the convenience and safety of multiple fully sealed membrane push buttons. The system effectively manages the charging and distribution of power between batteries from the motor and power usage throughout the boat. The clearly labelled membrane buttons on the front of the Battery Control Module allows owners to turn batteries one and two on or off or link them together. The Battery Controller Module is also wired directly to the engines alternator, with unrestricted flow of power from the engine to the batteries. This enables batteries to be charged more quickly, via less running time and promotes battery energy life. There is also a built in battery charger - just plug into any 240 volt power source and charge your batteries.

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 bigger part of the boating experience as the boat is. Towing your Whittley with a custom-made Mackay Tr ailer is a breeze."
Steve Whittley, Managing & Design Director

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.
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.

The ultimate way to trim your new whittley, is by setting and forgetting with Zipwake automatic trim tabs.
“The Zip Wake system has two main benefits, aied at making the driving of your boat as simple as possible. The tab's are automatic, meaning, set and forget, ensuring your boat is level whilst underway. The tabs also set themselves into the fully down position whilst transitioning to and from the plane. Which ensure the bow lift often associated with larger boats, is minised and maximum visbility is maintained. both these features are ideal for customers new to boating as it simplifies the planning and driving of your boat. I would recommend the Zip Wake system to customers looking at buying a Whittley from our CR range.“
Alan Whittley, Direct or Sales & Marketing
COMFORT AND SAFETY
Dynamically eliminates uncomfortable and dangerous boat pitch and roll.
PERFORMANCE AND FUEL ECONOMY
Automatically minimizes wave resitance and saves fuel.
INTUITIVE AND PRECISE CONTROL
Innovative 3D controls provide unmatched control of running trim, heel or heading.
DURABLE AND EFFECTIVE
Patented series of durable fast-acting interceptors provide supreme lift force characteristics.
COMPLETE AND COMPETITIVE
All-inclusinve mass-produced modular design provides built-in quality, simple installation and easy expansion whilst making the system affordable.
INTERCEPTORS vs TRIM TABS
MORE EFFICIENT LIFT
Near full beam inceptor arrangements are much more efficient at making lift compared to trim tabs with narrow span.
Zipwake's interceptor blade extends just 30mm, whereas trim tabs often project 1500 reflecting substantial drag.
5 TIMES FASTER ACTUATION
Zipwake's blade stroke takes 1.5 seconds, outperforming conventional trim tabs by at least a factor of 5.
Interceptors provide more effective trim control creating less waves which directly leads to better fuel economy.
Simply set, forget and your boat is trimming itself in many ways, it makes planning so easy and effortless!
Zipwake is standard on the CR 2800 and CR 2600 models.
Zipwake is an option on CR 2080, CR 2180, CR 2380, XS 20, XS 24 and FF 2100 models.
