In the wake of WWII, a war-ravaged world craved speed and excitement. Boating innovation flourished as displacement hulls and sedate speeds gave way to planing hulls with greater horsepower. Inboard and outboard engines evolved from marinised lawn mower and truck engines to highly specialised performance power plants. This was the world of enterprising young businessman Jim Whittley who subsequently produced his first timber boat out of a small shop in the Melbourne suburb of Bulleen in 1953.
Half a century plus of boat building has brought many changes to Whittley. The adoption of fibreglass in the late 1960s and production of landmark models Voyager and the Puma permanently put Whittley on the boating map. With new materials, purpose-built premises, new technologies, Whittley boats owners can chose from either an outboard motors propulsion system or a Volvo Penta sterndrive configuration.
Whittley Marine has succeeded in balancing traditional core values with constant improvement and delivers on that original promise of quality and innovation while in-house glazing departments and trim and canopy shops allow Whittley to deliver on quality and consistency. Whittley Marine has now firmly established a value-oriented range of affordable fibreglass boats to give every boating family the opportunity to own the Whittley experience. #WelcomeBackSA.
