Our Story -
Half a century of boat building has brought many changes to Whittley – new materials, purpose-built premises and new technologies. Whittley Marine has succeeded in balancing traditional core values with constant improvement and delivers on that original promise of quality and innovation.
The adoption of fibreglass in the late 1960s changed Whittley forever and produced two landmark models: the Voyager, a genuine live-aboard family cruiser; and the Puma, a rakish, high-sided runabout that later morphed into the Cherokee. Together, they permanently put Whittley on the boating map.
More recently, Whittley introduced the latest computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD-CAM) systems. While craftsmanship and attention to detail are still at the heart of every Whittley, innovations in technology enable the company to improve its quality, efficiency and design. This is further enhanced by in-house timber and glazing departments, plus Whittley’s own trim and canopy shops, allowing the company to guarantee supply and consistency. In addition to our Cruiser and Sea Legend ranges, Whittley Marine has now firmly established the value-oriented Whittley CW range of affordable fibreglass boats to give every boating family the opportunity to own the Whittley experience.
