“If you’re looking for a premium brand name package, at an affordable price with a show deal and premium advice and service, come and speak to our dedicated team of passionate boaties. We won’t be beaten on fibreglass packages in Victoria at this years show.” Mr Honeychurch added.
Whittley will also have finance and insurance experts on the stand to discuss Stratton Finance and Club Marine Insurance options to help make your boating dreams a reality. The advanced Whittley Pulse System will also be on display, allowing patrons to experience a hands-on understanding of the system and how the functions integrate into a new Whittley boat.
The Melbourne Whittley Cruiser Club (Whittley Owners Club), will also be on hand at the stand. The Whittley Cruiser Club offers the opportunity for Whittley trailer boat owners to visit great boating destinations throughout Victoria with the club. Mr. Honeychurch continued to say “Trailer boating is fun, one weekend you can be touring the Gippsland Lakes and the next cruising along the River Murray. A Whittley provides a unique experience as you can simply hook on behind a suitable tow vehicle and tow anywhere anytime and your holiday starts from the moment you get in the car with your family. With our range of vessels you do not need overwidth signs, flags, flashing lights or restrictions like many imported boats. You are not stuck in a marina berth, you can get out and change the location of your private water front beach house every weekend.”
Whittley is also offering a number of new initiatives for first time boat buyers who purchase at the show, on top of great sound advice. Working with key storage companies, both wet and dry storage, boat handling courses and service centers around the state to tick all new boat buyers boxes to ensure a proper introduction into boating for first time buyers.
“We appreciate that for a first time boat buyer, making the right choice is difficult, there any many things to overcome, but it can be mastered. Things like, where to store the boat, where do you obtain a boat operators license, what vehicle is needed to tow the boat, and also the fear of using it. We have some great experienced sales staff who can assist in this process, and offer great services like dry stack and a personalised on water hand over, to show new boat owners all the little tricks to successful boating.” added Mr Honeychurch.
