Whittley Marine has just released the new Clearwater (CW) 1950, a purpose-built sports fishing boat that doesn’t skimp on family comforts. It’s light enough to be towed by a large family sedan or smaller SUV and built to tackle rough conditions without breaking the family budget.

The CW 1950 features an innovative walk-through rear transom door, moulded fishing/boarding platforms and generous beam for stability. There’s plenty of room to store your catch with an uncluttered cockpit and kill tank. Anchoring is easy with the convenient walk-through configuration allowing excellent forward access to the separate anchor locker and large bowsprit with lazy anchor system.

The roomy cabin has a comfortable vee-berth for a snooze when the fish go off the bite, with standard plush bunk cushions and side pocket storage either side. There are two standard eskies that are easily stored under stainless steel U-bars below the driver and passenger sports seats. These also make up the larger rear lounge.

The CW 1950 features one of the largest fishing cockpits in its class thanks to the unique folding outboard door in the engine well. There are also handy toe rails to slide feet under for comfort – and storage aplenty with custom side pockets designed for the fishermen in mind. Easily powered by outboards from 115HP, the CW 1950 is an efficient sports fishing platform that slices through chop and delivers excellent stability when drifting or at anchor.

Whittley Marine Director of Sales and Marketing Alan Whittley says, “The new CW 1950 is built on the legendary John Savage Mako hull design. The Whittley R&D team have enhanced the styling with a slick new dash that can accommodate a massive 16” screen, a flat transom, folding engine welland folding door. They’ve also given the hull more aggressive chines and moulded boarding platforms, adding to the hulls already impressive blue water credentials. The updates were based on feedback from existing customers and fishing clubs consulted in the redesign process. The CW also showcases Whittleydistinctive sport fishing look.”

The CW range features three models: the newly launched 1650, the 1950 and the 2150 – the flagship of the CW range. They are all outboard-powered. The CW 1950 comes standard with bimini top, bow rails, side windows, two-tone hull, bunk cushions and storage. The boat, four-stroke Yamaha115HP motor and Mackay dual axle trailer package is priced from $56,990, excluding freight and pre-delivery charges.

Alan says, “AtWhittleyit’s important that we offerAustralian families a complete range of fiberglass trailer boats with outboard and stern drive options. The popularity of the outboard-powered 6m family fishing boat is obvious. The good news for customers is, our CW 1950 is packaged up with all the popular options for less than $60,000.”

Whittley Marine will have the largest single boat display at this year’s Melbourne Boat Show. Both new models will be on display June 16-19 at stand D4, along with every model in the 16 strong Whittley model range.
