Past and present Whittley owners invited to bring boat photos and memories to Melbourne Boat Show.

The Whittley Marine Group will mark a special milestone at the Melbourne Boat Show this weekend when the company — and the Whittley family — celebrates no less than 60 years of boatbuilding history.

To mark the occasion, Melbourne boatbuilder and retailer Marine Max will offer $500 off all new Whittley boat purchasers across the Cruiser (CR) range as well as complimentary membership to the exclusive Whittley Owners Club. The offer is also open to past Whittley boat owners, who are invited to enter a competition for a free boat upgrade; owners are invited to attend the show with a photo of their past (or current) Whittley along with a written memory of their lasting experience in their boat. The best entry will then be judged by Neville and Steve Whittley at the closing night of the Boat Show, where the winning entrant will receive — along with the $500 off their new boat — an upgrade to their new boat including a limited edition heritage wood package and a limited edition plaque marking the 60th year of the company.

Whittley Marine Group sales and marketing manager, Alan Whittley said: "As one of Victoria's oldest boat manufacturers, it is great to see our past customers come back. Repeat business is an important part of our brand and as we celebrate the legacy of Jim Whittley and the 60th year of the company, we look forward to hearing the experiences of past Whittley owners experiences. This is our way of thanking the public for their ongoing support for the brand over our 60-year history. We are a boating family, we use the boats that we develop, and it brings us great joy to see like-minded families getting out and using their Whittleys. It is always wonderful to hear a past customer talk about purchasing a boat from my grandfather, a bond wood family cruising boat and the joy it provided their whole family."

Today the Whittley Marine Group manufactures fiberglass and aluminium boats under several brands including Spy Boats, Whittley Cruiser and Whittley Sea Legend, Clearwater AL and Clearwater FG.
