Whittley Boats releases new high-tech onboard operating system

There’s good news for Whittley owners and trailer boat aficionados alike. The Whittley R&D team has come up with the very latest in high-tech onboard operating systems to install on their popular range of trailer boats. Presenting the Whittley Pulse!

Utilising sophisticated digital gear from respected brands such as Garmin, Fusion, C-Zone and Volvo, Whittley has created the next-generation fishing stationfor its popular SL range and cruising helms for its range of CR models.

After rigorous testing by Whittley owners and testing teams, the experts agree – it doesn’t get much better than this. Volvo offers car-like integration – everything is operated by the one waterproof ‘eKey’, which means no more lugging round big bundles of keys. The eKey runs the battery management system and features battery protection and automatic start aid, borrowing energy from the auxiliary battery to ensure there is always power to start the engine.



“The future is now. It is such a huge step forward. The Whittley Pulse is the heartbeat of our boats, bringing together all the key features into one key and one screen. You’re only ever two clicks away from where you need to be to control all the functions of your boat,” says Steven Whittley, Managing and Design Director at the Whittley Marine Group.



The system is connected to a Garmin or Volvo Penta glass cockpit display,which provides a clear visual on everythingin 7’’, 12’’and 16” options. It’s clean and minimalist with no gauges. It is also connected to FUSION-Link, which talks to a concealed unit and can be operated via Bluetooth or by the Garmin Helm app. All functions of the boat can be operated through this app, including a second screen. Which means you can be down the back working the bait board or cooking your catch and still have a visual of the what’s under the boat and operate the lighting and switching from the palm of your hand.



“Keyless technology is in our home and in our car – and at last it’s available in the Whittley range of vessels. This is a first for the local trailer boat industry and we are proud to work with our key suppliers to bring this technology into our boats for the consumer to have an unrivaled, easy boating experience,” says Steven.

Also for the first time, all the Volvo Penta engine data including fuel flow and all other key engine functions is displayed digitally on the Volvo Pentaglass cockpit or Garmin screens, removing the need for traditional analogue gauges.

“The Whittley Pulse System really is the heartbeat of your boat. I encourage all potential customers to explore the benefits of this new option when looking at purchasing a new Whittley,” says Steven.
